Currently looking at #greenhouse gas emission factors for work, and according to the standard factors released by the Australian Government (updated July 2017), you produce about 67 times more CO2-equivalent when you send your #garden/green waste to #landfill rather than composting it. (!!!)

My recommended reading for today:

Neoliberalism has conned us into fighting climate change as individuals

Stop obsessing with how personally #green you live – and start collectively taking on corporate power

While we busy ourselves greening our personal lives, fossil fuel corporations are rendering these efforts irrelevant. The breakdown of carbon #emissions since 1988? A hundred companies alone are responsible for an astonishing 71 percent. You tinker with those pens or that panel; they go on torching the planet.

The freedom of these corporations to pollute – and the fixation on a feeble #lifestyle response – is no accident. It is the result of an ideological war, waged over the last forty years, against the possibility of collective action. Devastatingly successful, it is not too late to reverse it.

The political project of #neoliberalism, brought to ascendence by #Thatcher and Reagan, has pursued two principal objectives. The first has been to dismantle any barriers to the exercise of unaccountable private power. The second had been to erect them to the exercise of any democratic public will.

Its trademark policies of #privatization, deregulation, tax cuts and free trade deals: these have liberated corporations to accumulate enormous profits and treat the atmosphere like a sewage dump, and hamstrung our ability, through the instrument of the state, to plan for our collective welfare.

Anything resembling a collective check on corporate power has become a target of the elite: lobbying and corporate donations, hollowing out democracies, have obstructed green policies and kept fossil fuel subsidies flowing; and the rights of associations like unions, the most effective means for workers to wield power together, have been undercut whenever possible.

At the very moment when climate change demands an unprecedented collective public response, neoliberal #ideology stands in the way. Which is why, if we want to bring down emissions fast, we will need to overcome all of its #free-market mantras: take railways and utilities and energy grids back into public control; regulate corporations to phase out fossil fuels; and raise taxes to pay for massive investment in climate-ready infrastructure and renewable energy — so that solar panels can go on everyone’s rooftop, not just on those who can afford it.

Neoliberalism has not merely ensured this agenda is politically unrealistic: it has also tried to make it culturally unthinkable. Its celebration of competitive self-interest and hyper-individualism, its stigmatization of compassion and solidarity, has frayed our collective bonds. It has spread, like an insidious anti-social toxin, what Margaret Thatcher preached: “there is no such thing as society.”

From ASPO-USA:

"A Dutch startup is planning to bring a completely solar-powered electric car to market, which could theoretically let some drivers go for months without plugging it in. A team of alumni from Solar Team Eindhoven has been developing prototypes of 4-seater solar family cars for the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge since 2012. According to the company, its Lightyear One model will not only be capable of driving between 400 and 800 kilometers (~248 to 497 miles) per charge, but also “In sunny conditions it can drive for months without charging.” Those are both bold claims."

Just 100 companies responsible for 71% of #global emissions, study says

#climatechange #environment

Doesn't mean you shouldn't as an individual make good choices daily. But it does mean governments really should get their act together and ensure these companies play their part. Unfortunately these companies likely own most of the politicians in the governments.
