The imminent sale of the GIB to Macquarie, labelled as an asset stripper, is so troubling that not only are urgent questions being raised but there is strong cross-party support to pause the sale. We stand to lose an institution with a proven record of fighting climate change, enabling green innovation and creating a return for the taxpayer.
With 2016 the hottest year on record, a climate-sceptic in the White House, and our (far from perfect) national climate targets in real danger, now is not the time to break up one of the UK most significant investors in clean, renewable energy.
Today we've had confirmation that a monitoring station in Brixton Road has reported that the annual legal safe levels of nitrogen dioxide were exceeded within the first five days of the year. Sadly this is no surprise to us at City Hall, and it is why our mayor, Sadiq Khan, has had to take urgent and hard-hitting measures to help halt the rise of London's filthy air pollution.
Brexit carries a triple risk for the UK's farmers and environment. They risk losing Common Agricultural Policy subsidies vital to their livelihoods; being exposed to increased competition and tariffs in new trade deals; and the erosion of the UK's world-leading environmental protections.
As I step down as CEO of Dearman, I must admit that a piston engine that runs on nothing but air - the basis of the last 12 years at Highview and Dear...
In other UK industries it is generally accepted that some products are higher quality and therefore cost more, without this being seen as 'hostility' - why not in farming? It really is time for non-organic farming in the UK to stop treating any description of quality in food production as a threat to the whole industry, rather than welcome diversity.
In the UK, amongst those who self-identify as 'highly interested' in the environment, the BBC comes out top as a media source by a considerable margin, but Huffington Post and BuzzFeed do well against more established brands.
Across the world, species of wildlife are fast disappearing, silently becoming extinct. Thankfully, charismatic elephants seem to hold a special place in many people's hearts and, for that, I'm thrilled.
Reconnecting with nature is not just beneficial for us and our health; it is beneficial for all species. The more we can learn from the ecosystems that we depend upon, the better we can protect them, for everyone's survival.
What will life be like for people living and working in the countryside in the year 2030? As the impacts of climate change become increasingly obvious...
Christmas is approaching fast, the high streets are alive with shoppers, and presents are mounting up ready to be wrapped. Among the most popular of gifts are clothes; after all, we love to look good. But, do we really need them?
It's impossible to deny that our planet is a finite resource, which comes under more strain with every new day it seems. Luckily, there is also the growing realisation that this resource needs to be used more sparingly, more effectively, thus protecting it for the generations that will share it after us
I sympathise entirely with Khan's attempt to tackle something which his predecessor Boris Johnson actively suppressed while in office. And as a fellow asthma-sufferer, I think that his intention is genuine and that the gesture couldn't come sooner. There are handy websites and apps now which monitor the levels of air pollution - but they inevitably place the onus on individuals to avoid breathing in toxic air rather than the causing factors of pollution. By aiming policy at individuals, this falls short of the drastic overhaul of London's dirty air we need urgently.
I am not suggesting that we blinker ourselves to the prospect of Trump's regime - and, in particular, to the appointment Scott Pruitt as Head of the Environmental Protection Agency - but before the official inauguration, I believe we should hold our nerve.
The true inspiration to be drawn from this economic restructuring is the power of hope - the courage to dream and aspire to a better future, in what can only be described as a testament to the power of human will and determination, transcending all cultures and borders. Time will tell if our tenacity and persistence will allow us to prevail.
It's that time of year again. The mountain at the back of the house is powdered with snow, and silence fills the village. My grandparents are in the...
