Proposed job cuts at Cadent Gas are irresponsible and unnecessary
Plans to cut up to 450 jobs at Cadent Gas are totally unnecessary and must be urgently reconsidered, says UNISON today (Tuesday). As part of a consultation that has begun this week, the company announced that roles in the customer services, technical, scheduling and dispatch, repair planning and supervisory teams will go, despite past assurances by the company. Cadent had previously flagged a potential restructure of management posts, acknowledging that the business had too many. But plans shared with UNISON reveal that instead it’s the lowest paid in the company that will be affected, with a...

Covid-19: The Makings of a Third World War
By Selim JahanApr 16 2021 (IPS-Partners) When we were growing up in the sixties during the time of the Cold War between the USA and the then Soviet Union, we would often hear about a possible Third World War. Sometimes, the situation would get so heated that people would fear the Third World War might not be far away. I still remember the events in 1961, when the threats and counter-threats between President John Kennedy and Prime Minister Nikita Khrushchev over the Bay of Pigs reached such an extreme level that a Third World War seemed imminent. Sixty years have passed since then—and no, there hasn’t been a T...

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...
