Yet another country announces their intention to end the sale of fossil fuel cars. First it was France, then the United Kingdom and now it is China. Bloomberg has reportedthat the Chinese authorities have been looking a timeline for phasing out the sale of fossil fuel vehicles according to the Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology, Xin Guobin. On paper this move should be significant. China is one of the World’s largest automobile markets with over 28 million vehicles sold last year.  China is in line with an industry that is rapidly improving electric cars and many will see the news as positive. The problem with China’s ban on fossil fuel cars is that it doesn’t do anything to solve the root cause of air pollution in its cities. It grabs headlines but instead China, England and France should be focusing on rethinking how we use our cities.

PEOPLE FOR NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT NSW

HUMAN SURVIVAL PROJECT

 

SANCTIONS? NO USE AT ALL!

THREATS? MAKE KIM JONG UN WORK FASTER

MILITARY ACTION? MILLIONS WILL DIE.

DIALOGUE? MIGHT BE WORTH A TRY.

(AND ANOTHER TRY AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER...)

 

Kim Jong Un has conducted his 6th nuclear test. Whether it really was a hydrogen bomb is uncertain, but it seems likely that the blast was 4-6 times the size of the last one. If it wasn't an actual hydrogen bomb its likely to have been 'gas boosted', which is a kind of way station to a hydrogen bomb. There doesn't seem to be, and most likely isn't, any way to stop him. Hyperventilating, sanctions, threats of military action, aren't working. Military action will kill millions, and lead to the very thing we are trying to prevent – the actual use of nuclear weapons.

Pope Francis, who has a strong belief in the science of climate change, called upon world leaders on Wednesday to "listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor, who suffer most because of the unbalanced ecology."

Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew I, the head of the Orthodox Christian Church, will issue a joint message to commemorate the annual "World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation" on Friday, the Associated Press reported.
