The old climate certainties ‘aren’t certain any more’
The United Nations Climate Conference (COP26) has put climate justice at the centre of the news agenda for a fortnight, but for UNISON members working at the Environment Agency, adapting to climate changes in the UK is part of their job, every single day.

Counting Your Carbon Footprint One Meal At a Time
At the COP26 conference this year, there’s a lot of grumbling among activists that official venues are serving meat, even if it’s locally-sourced meat.

But here in Glasgow, a serving of meat also comes with a lesson in carbon footprint economics. Attendees here at COP26 are now informed of the carbon impact of their meals as they peruse the menus. At one restaurant, I was offered a choice between the traditional Scottish meal of haggis, neeps and tatties (stuffed,...

Watch: A Pet Turtle ’s Pursuit of Happiness in “Snowy”
Filmmakers Kaitlyn Schwalje and Alex Wolf Lewis decided to make a movie about Snowy the pet turtle after spending Thanksgiving with him one year.
