    Comment on the Clean Power Plan Proposed Rule

    It would appear that President Obama has done his homework on this issue, by all I have heard Implementation of the Montreal Protocol had extensive economic benefits, including USA exporting alternative technology.

    Proof Positive that we can rally together, when a confronting a common threat, that potentially reduces us all, to our Lowest Common Denominator : Survival of the Species.
    The Montreal Protocol exemplify's the Highest Common Denominator :
    Survival of the Entire Species.

    The President grasps the interactive by-products of increased health issues, the U.N. is just catching on, to that reality Nexus2015.
    My proposed solution addresses the increased health issues that are interactive by-products of present sewage disposal, issues.

    President Obama said it "40 % of carbon emissions" come from Power Plants.
    The IPCC suggests a Minimum 40 % Global Reduction of Carbon Emissions is required to address Climate Change.

    The EPA is uniquely positioned to exemplify s the Highest Common Denominator
    1) Follow the Presidents directives, and create the demand for innovation.
    2) Maximize Economic benefits by exporting the Alternative Technology Globally.
    3) Expediting a 40 % Global Reduction of Carbon Emissions.

    My suggested Alternative Technology
    Human Excrement + Nuclear Waste = Hydrogen

    1) The Nuclear Waste exists "right now" today!
    2) The Excrement is renewable daily.
    3) Radiolysis does not require extreme temperatures,
    Eliminating the possibility of Meltdown, Peoples greatest Nuclear Fear!
    4) Nuclear Waste and Human Excrement need never come in direct Physical contact.
    Eliminating the Possibility of Nuclear Proliferation. Peoples secondary Nuclear Fear.
    5) Hydrogen can be burned on Radiolysis Site to generate electricity.
    Eliminating Hydrogen transportation infrastructure (pipelines)
    6) Water created in the Hydrogen Exhaust could replenish aquifers.

    All levels of the USA Military Industrial Complex including the Department of Defense have
    expressed significant security concerns associated with continued excessive carbon emissions.
    Indicating a mobilization of forces similar to a war effort is required to calm
    Military Security Concerns and Issues through the expedited implementation of alternative technologies.
    I support President Barack Obama 140% on this issue.

Guest Blog Mike Barry: 5 things we learnt on Marks and Spencer Plan A journey over last 12 months

Guest Blog by Mike Barry:  Director of Sustainable Business (Plan A) at Marks and Spencer

It’s that time of year, publication of our annual sustainability (Plan A) report. After the harum scarum dash to gather, collate, assure, sign-off and publish a wealth of data we can breathe (for a moment!) and reflect on what it all means.
Here are some quick insights into what we’ve learnt at M&S in the last 12 months on our Plan A journey.
1. Succession – Nine years is a long time in the world of sustainable business. How many corporate plans have come and gone since we launched Plan A in 2007? Too many! The continuity offered by having a single multi-year plan has been incredibly important. It’s allowed us to take long term decisions in a very short term turbulent retail marketplace. It’s allowed us to build the skills and capabilities in our business units to integrate Plan A into their ways of working. It’s allowed us to pick our battles, knowing that occasionally we’ve just got to let a …

Bokova out? Georgieva in for next UN Secretary General

The rumors that have been circulating for the last month have now proven to be true. The Bulgarian government has withdrawn support from Irina Bokova as their candidate for UN Secretary General and replaced her with Kristalina Georgieva, the European commissioner for budget and human resources.
There is some evidence that the right of center parties in European capitals have been behind this with some articles appearing in the last few weeks against Bokova. The Guardian reported on the 26th: “one of her (Kristalina’s) staff members was hacked and emails purporting to be from one of her top aides were sent out to the rest of her office, instructing them to attack Bokova”There is no question that Kristalina has the cv and record to be a very good UN Secretary General. She is a strong supporter of sustainable development issues she will pick up the SDGs and climate agendas with ease. She is dynamic and very personable and was very active around last week’s UN General Assembly High Level se…

Rest in Peace Tania Valerie Raguz 'one of our own'

It is with deep sadness that I heard of the passing of Tania Valerie Raguz.

Many of us will have worked with her at United Nations meetings over the past ten years when she was the First Secretary of the Mission of Croatia to the UN.

Tania Valerie Raguz was on the Bureau for Rio+20 and a Vice-Chair Of the Bureau of the seventeenth session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) and  most recently she had joined the world of NGOs working as the Public Affairs Advisor for the World Animal Protection previously know as World Society for the Protection of Animals. WAP had been very active around Rio+20 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and she helped their work particularly around the SDGs.

Tania played her role in helping to frame the agenda that we are all committed to delivering on. CSD17 was one of the more successful CSD and without Rio+20 there would be no Sustainable Development Goals.
