50% reduction energy, no water
They claim their technology is able to process more than 90 per cent of any type of plastic, reducing costs by half while maintaining the quality of the recycled plastic. The new technology will make the recycling process more profitable without using water.
Have you watered your yard lately? You probably should.
The argument here is that we let everything die when we should be letting only subsets of things (like roses and lawn) go.
The challenge is how do we do that when irrigation systems are designed to water the grass and not the tree roots per se.
A CDP poll of 2,000 publicly traded companies found that nearly half — including a majority of fossil fuel energy companies — support negotiation of a climate agreement to limit global warming.
I too have found that most companies/groups of folks are indeed reasonable. The issue is the mot vocal anti-action folks. They suck all the heat and air out of negotiations or initial discussions for reasonable movement towards effectively dealing with the issues at hand.
One key with new supply chain traceability tools is establishing trust — a priority for emerging players such as EcoVadis and Provenance.
I agree! Solving the (what a decade ago appeared daunting) challenge of true traceability is key. If we are to truly know where a thing comes from or how it was made, we must have robust traceability.
Residents cut water use by 35 percent last month, surpassing the state mandate of a 32 percent reduction in Thousand Oaks.

This is an old technique. I first recall seeing these when James Cameron filmed "The Abyss" in an abandoned nuclear power plant fuel pool/containment building.
Following the approach we often see from companies marketing products before big storms, Nike focuses on climate change science in the promotion of its latest line of base-layer apparel. Is it a sign that more Americans are taking climate change seriously? Don’t get your hopes up.
Looking forward to El Niño, California may find soon itself at the other extreme, with global warming fueling the swing from drought to torrent. When storms do break through to California, they are now loaded with additional rainfall due to global warming, dramatically increasing the risk of flooding.
Ignorance won. Good job short-sighted, selfish thinking. We are reaping what we have sewn.
As a society, we have increasingly become disconnected from our food and food production. The wastefulness of this unnecessary packaging is so lazy it's hard to know where to begin. #food #foodprep #foodproduction #fieldtofork #consumerism #consumption #avocado #guacamole

Tired of growing electricity bills, Miguel Espinoza decided to turn to the sun, rather than the grid, for power.
The notion of de-incentivizing rooftop solar is beyond insane. To be sure there are additional challenges for power utilities, but distributed, renewable electricity generation is a social good that should be supported and expanded. Not have the legs cut out from underneath it.
The federal government paid out as much as $51 million in green car subsidies for Volkswagen diesel vehicles based on falsified pollution test results, according to a Times analysis of the federal incentives.
This is incredible and inexcusable.
In this week's cpolumn, Kevin O'Marah, Chief Content Officer at SCM World, focuses on the issue of water scarcity He highlights how Coca-Cola has reached its water reduction targets's five years ahead of schedule, revealing an accelerating trend among operations and supply chain people to take on the really big problems facing us all, including not only environmental sustainability but also human health and hunger
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama Saturday (Aug. 29 pressed the case for urgent action to combat climate change, while defending his administration from criticism by environmental critics unhappy with its approval of Shell's plan to drill off Alaska's coast. "I share...
How you say "Climate Change is real" but also approve greater extraction of fossil fuels is unclear to me.
