Greta Tells It
update: Still not sure why so much hate on a kid. Celebrities and politicians telling her to shut up, even death threats. Very strange.
Cows and Greenhouse Gas
So there are about a billion cows on earth, and they produce methane as part of their digestive process. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas. BUT, it turns out if you add pink seaweed to their diet it eliminates methane production in cattle. Amazing.

The World Could Shift To Green Energy for Less Than it Subsidies Fossil Fuels
This is a game changer. A new report from the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) estimates the cost of subsidizing a full transition to clean energy, and comes out with a figure that is only 10-30% of the subsidy presently given to the planet-destroying fossil fuel industries.
That’s right. It would be cheaper to go green.
Just 10% of fossil fuel subsidy cash ‘could pay for green transition’
The report can be found here.
Why are we not doing this? Hmmm.
Looks like plastic bags aren’t so bad after all
Although I’ve got a couple Aldi totes that have to have hundreds of prior uses.
You’d need to use an organic cotton tote bag 20,000 times to get the same environmental impact as a plastic disposable bag. Plastic bags are an environmental nightmare, but it looks like the other options may be worse. I think grocery retailers should have to take back plastic bags and recycle them.
Your cotton tote is pretty much the worst replacement for a plastic bag
Packaging and convenience bags are a growing problem. What is the solution?
Essentially particles of solid and liquid matter suspended in air. Air pollution if you like.
