- Thu Nov 7, 2019 - Coca-Cola chooses plastic bottle collection over aluminum cans to cut carbon footprint
Along with multinational rivals including PepsiCo (PEP.O) and Nestle (NESN.S), Coca-Cola has started offering recyclable aluminum cans as well as plastic bottles for some water brands as the industry reacts to public outrage over the world's oceans being polluted with plastic waste.
But Coca-Cola's launch of a range of cans for sparkling water in the United States is not part of a broader shift, said CEO James Quincey during an interview in Nigeria's commercial capital Lagos.
\'We are not trying to engineer a strategic shift from plastic to aluminum,\' said Quincey, adding that the firm was \'focused on collecting\' and has a collection rate of about 59%.
Quincey said import tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum that U.S. President Donald Trump set in 2018 to preserve national security would also not alter its plan.
\'It's not so big that it's going to make us change our strategy,\' said Quincey on the impact of the tariffs.
\'Given the relative weight of aluminum in our
- Thu Nov 7, 2019 - We are running out of air
Officials have implored the people of New Delhi to stay inside, indefinitely. Five million children in India's capital have been handed face masks. Everyone is to keep windows closed. Contrary to the most fundamental medical advice, the city's chief minister urged residents this week to \'avoid outdoor physical activities.\'
News images seem cut from an apocalyptic outbreak film. One of India's holiest rivers is covered in toxic foam that looks like white cotton candy. Midday visibility is like a foggy dusk. The air reportedly causes people's eyes to burn.
At the root is not some panic-inducing virus, though. The cause is simply pollution from agriculture and transportation. And the city's air crisis is unique only in degree. The same elements are accumulating in the air everywhere.
More than a decade ago, a study by India's government predicted the untenability of the air in New Delhi, warning that the crisis was primarily due to emissions from the city's more than 8 million ca
- Thu Nov 7, 2019 - Water crisis builds in Egypt as dam talks falter, temperatures rise
Ahmed Abd-Rabo used to get all the water he needed to feed his crops 50 km (30 miles) from Egypt's River Nile. Then supplies in the canal linking his seven acres to the river dwindled as other farmers drew more water, and he had to abandon half the plot.
His smallholding is one of the victims of a creeping water crisis, exacerbated by Egypt's growing population and the impacts of climate change.
Egypt fears things could get even worse as Ethiopia starts filling the reservoir behind a giant dam upriver.
On Wednesday, the United States was hosting talks between the countries and their fellow Nile-user Sudan to try to restart stalled talks over the hydropower project.
U.S. President Donald Trump said he met with officials from Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan to discuss the issues involved.
\'The meeting went well and discussions will continue during the day!\' Trump said in a Twitter post.
But even if Washington succeeds where years of trilateral negotiations have failed, Egypt
- Thu Nov 7, 2019 - How a former senator and defense secretary explains Republican spinelessness
\'I think it's either fear or complicity.\' That is how former Maine Republican senator and secretary of defense William S. Cohen tries to explain Republicans' subservience to President Trump and willful disregard for replete evidence of corruption. \'It's predominantly fear. He will target them,\' Cohen tells me in a phone interview Wednesday afternoon.
He points to Trump's public declaration that four congresswomen of color should \'fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came\' and \'go back\' home. Trump, in Cohen's eyes, \'put a target on their back.\' He also cites Marie Yovanovitch, the former ambassador to Ukraine who was told her safety was at risk when she was ordered back to the United States, and the recent conviction of a woman caught sending white powder to Cohen's former staffer, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine). Cohen, in other words, thinks there is more than the threat of an errant tweet. The prospect of actual physical harm cannot be ignored.
- Wed Nov 6, 2019 - Trump isn't a climate denier. He's worse.
The United States began the formal process of leaving the Paris Agreement on climate change yesterday, withdrawing on the first day it was legally possible. Barring something unforeseen, the country will depart the accord on November 4, 2020---a day after the next presidential election.
If it feels like the Paris withdrawal has been coming for years, that's not wrong. It was already clear on the day he was elected that President Donald Trump would leave the Paris Agreement. After some vacillating early in his term, Trump made a sunny, pomp-dense Rose Garden speech in June 2017 and promised to depart the treaty. But under the agreement's terms, he could not formally notify the United Nations of his intent to leave until this week, and American diplomats attended climate negotiations in the interim.
Nearly two and a half years later, it's worth briefly remembering that 2017 speech, which ran to more than half an hour. Scott Pruitt, the only other Cabinet official who spoke at the e
- Wed Nov 6, 2019 - Why biodegradables won't solve the plastic crisis
Throwaway plastic has found its way into almost every aspect of our lives: from the disposable coffee cup you pick up on the way to work or the straw in your smoothie, to the hidden fibres woven into wet wipes and tiny glittering fragments in make-up.
Of the 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic we've thrown away since we started mass-producing it in the 1950s, just 600 million tonnes has been recycled -- and 4.9 billion tonnes has been sent to landfill or left in the natural environment.
While awareness of the detrimental impact plastic can have on the environment has exploded in recent years, environmentally friendly alternatives are only now picking up steam. As single-use plastics bans come in around the world -- next year in the UK, and by 2021 in Canada -- new materials are going to become ever more important. But are they all they're cracked up to be?
Biodegradable plastics are one set of materials that are becoming a popular replacement as consumers demand green alternatives.
- Wed Nov 6, 2019 - Why don't Democrats drop impeachment and just censure Trump?
On Jan. 20, 2017, The Post reported that \'The effort to impeach President Donald John Trump is already underway.\' Even before Trump took the oath of office that day, Democratic groups were looking for a pretext to remove him from office.
They thought they would get one from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Instead, Mueller found that Trump did not conspire with Russia to steal the 2016 election. But rather than capitalize on that moment of vindication, Trump decided to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and give Democrats the pretext they had been looking for --- by asking Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden.
Democrats can't believe their luck. Unlike Russia, this time Trump actually did something wrong. The president's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was not \'perfect,\' as Trump repeatedly claims. A USA Today-Suffolk University poll finds that only 30 percent of Americans believe there was nothing wrong with the call. But the same poll finds that
- Wed Nov 6, 2019 - What Trump's climate surrender means for the world
This week, President Trump made it official. He confirmed his country's plans to officially withdraw from the Paris climate accord in a year's time --- that is, a day after the 2020 presidential election. The action was initiated on Monday, which was the first possible day to exit the accord with a one-year waiting period under rules set out by the United Nations.
\'Should a Democrat win the White House, the nation could reenter the agreement after a short absence --- as numerous candidates have pledged,\' reported my colleague Brady Dennis. \'But if Trump prevails, his reelection would probably cement the long-term withdrawal of the United States, which was a key force in helping forge the global effort under President Barack Obama.\'
Trump makes no secret of his distaste for the Paris agreement, which he has branded a \'total disaster\' and a supposedly unfair constraint on American business. Beyond pulling out of the accord, the White House has set about dismantling Obama-era enviro
- Tue Nov 5, 2019 - Inside Pete Buttigieg's $2-trillion climate plan
Over the span of 18 months, in August 2016 and February 2018, South Bend, Indiana, was struck by a pair of historic floods---the kind of low-probability catastrophes that have become terrifyingly common in a warming world. The small Midwestern city is still dealing with the consequences.
For its mayor, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, those floods serve as a tangible reminder of the environmental challenge the world faces, and the inspiration for the climate plan he released in September.
Buttigieg's scheme isn't the most ambitious: Compared to Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' $16.3 trillion estimate, Buttigieg wants to spend closer to $2 trillion, and sets a longer timeline for pollution reduction. But the 37-year-old candidate's approach to the crisis reflects both his creeping centrism and his youth: It's a mix of the urgent and the politically practical. Emphasizing the rural and non-coastal interests that are often dismissed in issues of environmental adaptat
