The food industry is part of the problem, but it can also clearly play an important role in being the solution. The 'Big 10' must as sector leaders act to on the one hand climate-proof their businesses but also climate-proof the future so there is enough food on the table today and tomorrow.
Here's a thing. The UK will stay in the EU after 22 May - with or without UKIP MEP's. Even if we did leave the EU some day, we would still have to trade on EU terms, and leaving the EU within the next five years would be disastrous for Wales.
The three largest parties haven't taken on Ukip, but all too often pandered to it, seeking to pull back Ukip voters by outdoing it in rhetoric and policy. This is not only morally wrong, but politically stupid. By pandering to Ukip's stance on immigration and Europe, the three largest parties have helped to make its claims that immigration has "caused" low wages, has "caused" housing shortages, has "caused" crowded hospitals and schools seem plausible... It's not surprising that Ukip's nasty, simplistic recipe of 'blame the foreigner' has got traction.
Because social housing - having been handed to unaccountable private landlords - is in such short supply, it is now available only to those in the most dire, desperate need. Every other tenant is in the hands of unregulated rental agents who are seemingly infinitely creative in their ability to dream up new charges.
The rights of children in the UK are under threat from advertising and our growing digital and screen-based lifestyle. It is time we unmask advertising and place it where it belongs: beside pornography, as a real threat to childhood. We must get kids back outdoors again.
The British Red Cross is warning beach-goers not to trust the old myth that fresh urine is the best treatment for jellyfish stings, as experts confirmed an impending influx of barrel jellyfish over the next few months due to warmer weather.
As world governments collectively shrug their shoulders at the latest stark findings of the IPCC it is possible that the leaders in fighting global climate change are now a small group of multi-national companies including Unilever.
Responsible tourism is not a one-sided deal. Not only is it better for Madagascar's wildlife and better for the Malagasy people, it also leads to a much more enriching and memorable holiday experience for you. In return for shouldering the responsibility for ensuring your holiday brings benefits to communities and environments...
If Royal Holloway's management want true partnership between students and staff, emphasis on recycling, and changing environmental attitudes, then maybe working with students to solve the problem of sustainability might be the way to go, rather than shifting the problem elsewhere.
Milliband has surrendered his electoral advantage, and his biggest gambling chip, by conceding the Conservative premise that the recession was brought on by Labour being too socialist.
Everyone is now free to embrace veganism, not only those who are already vegan, but those who are thinking about it and want to start bringing more plant-based dishes into their diet, or replace their leather shoes with vegan versions. Vegans can choose from a wide range of different food and products in supermarkets and online.
Britain's warm, wet winter brought floods and misery to many living across southern England, with large parts of Somerset lying underwater for months. When in January rainfall was double the expected average over wide areas, many people made cautious links between such extreme weather and global climate change.
Life as the parent of little ones is difficult enough. I remember my friends telling me off because I would get stressed if the boys wanted to play with a new toy without putting the last one back. I had so many sorter units; one for each type of toy or set. My kitchen became more of a playroom, the principal being that the boys would play happily on the kitchen floor as I did the cooking.
I have met and interviewed many of these environmental heroes over the years for various publications in the UK and the US, and have been in awe of their commitment, resourcefulness and personalities.
The government deserves some credit for having provided clarity on the funding available to renewable energy projects out to 2019. But delaying its acceptance of the Fourth Carbon Budget any longer is bad for business, consumers and the UK's energy security alike.
Earth Day has to be about more than just turning off lights. We need to reflect seriously on the impact that our individual choices are having on the planet and its inhabitants and start to make better ones.
