  • Let it out for forest destruction

    Blogpost by Jamie - 27 March, 2007 at 20:41 1 comment

    It's an absolute gift when companies who are being less than kind to the environment have an advertising campaign that, with a few tweaks, can be subverted to expose their dodgy deeds. Such a treat came in the form of the Kleenex 'Let It Out' adverts ... Read more >

  • Esperanza "banned" from Japan

    Blogpost by Andrew - 27 March, 2007 at 19:23 3 comments

    Apparently under some pressure, our agent there has decided she can't represent us. And without an agent it is all but impossible for us to take the ship into port. So we're not being officially blocked by the government, but are being kept out none ... Read more >

  • Twelve activists, from eight countries, have managed to get inside the security perimiter of a nuclear power plant at Belleville Sur Loire in France and scale the cooling tower. Notable in this video (in French) is the complete lack of any security p... Read more >

  • Mapping our losses

    Blogpost by Martin Lloyd - 27 March, 2007 at 16:23

    For some time I've been looking for software that will produce maps of the world where the size of territories is distorted by some relevant metric (population, carbon emissions, GDP per head etc). Now I've found the World Mapper project, which while ... Read more >

    Want a glimpse of just how big a Blue Whale is? Check out this "life-sized" Blue Whale banner from The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society.

    This is an extremely cool concept: it's really, really hard to visualize how big these creatures are.

    Yesterday Al Gore got to do what so many of us want to do and laid out the truth on global warming to sceptics in the US congress. His questioner had ten minutes, of which 9 minutes and 41 seconds were used to attack Gore, leaving 19 seconds response.... Read more >

  • The heights of insanity

    Blogpost by brianfit - 20 March, 2007 at 14:28 1 comment

    You have to ask what drives someone to climb a 250 metre (820-foot) smokestack to make a statement. But then you have to ask what drives society to spend money converting power stations to coal when we know our planet is choking on CO2.

  • A t-shirt says 'Tony loves WMDs'

    It's all been rather anti-climatic really. We didn't expect yesterday's vote to replace the UK's nuclear weapons would be defeated, so there was no surprise when Tony Blair got his way and the vote to replace Trident went through. Tony gets to go ahea... Read more >

    I got a letter from the government the other day.... It was in response to a petition I'd signed asking the UK government not to go ahead with the plans for a Trident replacement system. I don't know how many people signed the petition but it's probab... Read more >

    That's the title of an article in today's New York Times. From the article: Read more >

    Historically, fishermen in coastal towns, like Taiji in southwestern Japan, hunted whales in nearby waters. But things changed after the Commodore Perry’s so-called Black Ship...

    Activists being removed from their blockade of the Stora Enso headquarters in Helsinki

    We have some good news from Russia or, at least, the potential for good news.

    Back in September, our Partners in Crime report revealed how Finland is importing vast quantities of timber logged illegally in neighbouring Russia. According to federal law,... Read more >
