At Opposite Ends

Paris and its suburbs are well known for its saturated roads and its non-stop traffic jams. And everybody agrees that there should be fewer cars, but of course nobody wants to stop using their  own car. Following the same logic, two Parisian mayors created a small chaos in their localities.

The proof: during the UNFCCC conference in Copenhagen this December, the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs will buy 3,000 litres of a new generation of biofuel (one more).

CO2 for Sale

The development of carbon markets is a very fashionable idea among decisions-makers as a method to reduce CO2 emissions, but many insist that this idea essentially allows rich countries and companies to buy the right to continue polluting. An “innovator” from Minnesota, US, decided to make some money from those who believe in carbon offsetting, […]

Eco-Pollution

Anything can be “green” nowadays or at least that is what many industries and decision-makers will tell you, in order to prevent real changes and keep business running as usual.
