White Paper Weak on Metering – Parliamentary Committee agrees with CIWEM

Green (Living) Review

“Lacking ambition and urgency”, the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) today welcomes the conclusions of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee report on the Water White Paper. CIWEM was particularly alarmed by the White Paper’s proclamation: “water is relatively cheap compared to many other household bills, and we want it to stay that way”.

A Tale of Two Energy Visions: China and Australia

Fragmented habitats fragmented thinking

The recent Natural Environment White Paper offered a welcome recognition of this value and a shift in approach with the promotion of ecological networks at a landscape scale to deliver increased resilience to ecosystem pressures. However, any optimism over the White Paper is quickly called into question in light of the draft National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) which outwardly compromises many of the outlined objectives.

Following the Recycled Paper Trail

How does a used sheet a paper turn into a product made from like paper towels or a news paper? Below you will see a quick summary of the journey a piece of paper or cardboard must go through to be recycled. Paper is chopped up and water is added.

One of the main sources of industrial chlorine pollution is paper mills, which use chlorine to bleach white paper. Run-off from paper mills contaminates natural systems with chlorine compounds and mills also release toxic chlorinated compounds called dioxins into the air. White paper can easily be manufactured using non-chlorine bleaches, but so far economic pressures have prevented companies from switching to cleaner methods.

Cryptocurrencies rely on key information to verify that they are legitimate, such as the ‘white paper’ which details the origins of a coin, who made it, and how it works. However, these papers can be forged and simply just made up – which can cause businesses who end up with scam coins to be out of pocket. A child with old cathode ray tubes.

How to Get Decision-Makers to Invest in Nature

Conservancy Talk

White papers and peer-reviewed journal articles have their place, too. We had some white papers and good anecdotal case studies. Show us the data. That’s what I hear almost every time I work with decision-makers. Governments and businesses aren’t going to invest in conservation without data showing the effectiveness of those initiatives. So this is a great opportunity for us – environmentalists – to give them that data.

Sustainable forest management benefits people and the Planet

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) While it’s true that collecting used paper and recycling it into new products is good for the environment, there’s a catch. The wood fibers in paper can be recycled only about five times before they get too weak and break down. This method, alas, does not work with coniferous woods needed for paper pulp production, as they do not grow back when cut at the base unlike many of the deciduous trees on our Planet.

It is also a clear affront to the Natural Environment White Paper which promises to reverse the decline in our natural capital and not accelerate it.
