The #EU’s food and energy import dependency: #G7 and Europe face energy wake-up call as food and fuel crisis looms. Russia’s absence from the G7 summit is a stark warning to Europe that political turmoil on its doorstep risks an energy price crisis, at the same time as the effects of climate change on food imports could drive up costs. oxf.am/Ysc #G7Brussels #climate #EU2030
The Environmental Protection Agency's proposed power plant rules are long overdue and absolutely essential to preventing the poorest people on the planet from unnecessary hardships because of carbon pollution. They mark a critical step towards dealing with the harmful affect coal fired power plants have on public health and the climate, and meeting international emissions reduction commitments. More can and should be done to scale up these targets. oxf.am/YhD #fossilfuels #climate

The “Big 10” food and beverage companies are both highly vulnerable to climate change and major contributors to the problem. Together they emit so much greenhouse gas that, if they were a single country, they would be the 25th most polluting in the world – yet they’re not doing nearly enough to tackle it. oxf.am/GVc The truth #BehindtheBrands!
