Our Planet Faces Twin Climate and Nature Crises. Here ’s How We Can Tackle Both
Nature and climate are inextricably linked. Nature loss drives climate change and vice versa. Right now, both are in crisis. Repairing our natural climate—reversing deforestation, for example, or conserving ecosystems to sequester and store carbon—addresses both these crises. So-called natural climate solutions are one of the most important and cost-effective ways to stay on track for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Yet they receive little attention and just 8% of public climate funding. That must change. Well-designed natural climate solutions yield multiple co-benefits, including greater biodiversity, impr...

UNISON research reveals scale of council deficits
New UNISON research reveals the scale of the impact that COVID-19 has had on council finances across England and Wales. Huge increases in spending needed required to fight the pandemic, coupled with a massive hit to council income streams, meant that, in December 2020, top-tier councils predicted funding gaps totalling over £1bn by the end of the financial year (March 2021). District and borough councils are often overlooked even more than their top-tier equivalents, but they provide a range of important local services, from council housing and local planning, to recycling, refuse collection and leisure facilities....

Black Women Are Fighting to Be Recognized as Long COVID Patients
It took five years of chronic pain, nausea, fuzzy thoughts and a cruel mixture of fatigue and insomnia for Wilhelmina Jenkins to be diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). But even after she received that diagnosis, in 1988, she faced her fair share of doubters—not because her symptoms didn’t meet the bar for diagnosis, but because she is Black. At that time, researchers mistakenly thought ME/CFS, a syndrome that sometimes follows a viral illness and leads to long-term pain, fatigue and other symptoms that can last decades, primarily affected upper-class white women.

Why We Should Be Spending More on Space Travel
Let’s stipulate one thing: there’s absolutely no reason for us to go to space. It does nothing to feed us, to clothe us, to protect us, to heal us. It’s dangerous and hideously expensive too, a budget-busting luxury that policy makers and administrators have spent decades trying to defend—always unsuccessfully because the fact is, there’s no practical defense for it. So stand down the rockets, take down the space centers, pocket the money and let’s move on. Still want the adventure of going to space? That’s what they make movies for.
