The two-part report contains a detailed analysis and scenario created by Ecofys, and a narrative by WWF. It addresses the fundamental question: “Is a fully sustainable global energy system possible by 2050?” A Guide to Alternative Paris As well as the flea markets, Paris has numerous popular markets everyday in different neighborhoods. They sell mostly fruit and veg but there are fish mongers and butchers as well. Depending of course on the area, these markets can vary from over priced and bourgeois to really cheap and hectic. Its worth a visit, as these markets are a true parisian tradition and you could even come out with some tasty french cheeses of better quality and cheaper than the shops. As well its the best way to get your fresh fruit and vegetables if your planning to cook or just need some vitamins.

Cancel The Apocalypse: The New Path To Prosperity: Andrew Simms: Books Andrew Simms wants us to face the challenges of climate change with a positive approach rather than constant talk of doom and gloom. In the opening chapter he promises that this book will look at practical steps we can take to address the dangers of climate change, steps that will induce governments to follow our lead. The science of climate change is well understood, even if the consequences are far less clear. Predictive models always involve high degrees of uncertainty when applied to complex systems, but this does not absolve us from trying to anticipate and manage risks. People who deny climate change are not going to be convinced by any evidence and most other people do not have the knowledge or skills to assess competing and dense scientific arguments, but if conservative professions such as actuaries and engineers are already factoring climate change into their calculations, it is prudent for our politicians to be doing the same.

20 idées déco Pillar Box Blue -En Sharing is caring! As Pillarboxblue is full of a wonderful range of upcycling tutorials, I thought it would be useful to add a post that explains what upcycling actually is and the benefits of upcycling. What Is Upcycling? Standing up for Nature Most unfairly ignored UK bird? Photo: Chris Cant via wikimedia commons What is the UK’s most unfairly ignored bird? Finding a place to live The cost of housing varies widely, but international students, like French students, are eligible for housing assistance. It is reassuring to make housing arrangements before leaving for France. This is possible if you are able to secure a room in a university residence managed by CROUS, the regional student-service agency (although spaces in CROUS buildings are largely reserved for recipients of French government scholarships and students participating in exchange programs) or if you plan to attend an institution that maintains its own student residences. Otherwise searching for housing from outside the country can be difficult. You won't be able to visit properties and make fully informed decisions.

Do Good Lives Have to Cost the Earth?: Andrew Simms, Joe Smith: Books This book argues that what doesn't work for human happiness and wellbeing doesn't work well for the planet. Good lives should not, indeed ought not to be allowed to cost the earth. The argument, delivered trough a fractured prism of more than 20 (British) voices, unfolds at two levels. First there is the growing body of science that shows how increasing levels of affluence do not translate automatically into a greater sense of wellbeing. Boredpanda - robotys upcycling -En My name is Bruno Lefevre-Brauer, also known as + Brauer, and I create and regularly exhibit illuminated metal upcycled art robots from series "Viva la Roboluciòn!" More than their technological features, I try to reveal the original, almost primitive, form of the robots. I carefully choose vintage objects that have an industrial past, that are marked by time and whose patina has been molded by years of manual use. I admire the beauty, sometimes hidden, of these discarded industrial parts. I alter their appearance, sculpt them, and incorporate light sources into their structure before assembling the parts together to create unique and poetic pieces. The beauty of the materials and the venerable patinas express their beauty in the light of day, while at night, it is the turn of the strange, evocative light fittings to reveal their magic.

the environmentalists: Home known issues, new qualities Pollution, the destruction of habitats, even the extinction of whole species are no new phenomena.
