Do you know how to turn ordinary water into a billion-dollar business? In Switzerland there’s a company which has developed the art to perfection – Nestlé. This company dominates the global business in bottled water.

Swiss journalist Res Gehringer has investigated this money-making phenomena. Nestlé refused to cooperate, on the pretext that it was “the wrong film at the wrong time”. So Gehringer went on a journey of exploration, researching the story in the USA, Nigeria and Pakistan. His journey into the world of bottled water reveals the schemes and strategies of the most powerful food and beverage company on our planet.

Wall St. & Climate Change – Rainforest Action Network | Divest-Invest

Over the past century, the Big Banks have accrued untold power only to use it to repeatedly drive the world’s economy to the brink of collapse. Now the biggest banks are threatening to take us to the edge of an ecological catastrophe if they don’t stop funding coal, the primary driver of climate change.

A bank stands behind almost every utility burning coal and every mining company razing the land. The mounting climate crisis demands that these institutions should not invest even one more dollar in coal. Over the past few years, the banking sector has come together on a several occasions to issue various sets of principles to help it move away from coal, only to find itself still unable to extricate itself from the coal industry for good.

Boston Plans For ‘Near-Term Risk’ Of Rising Tides

via Boston Plans For ‘Near-Term Risk’ Of Rising Tides | WBUR & NPR.

While many cities around the country grapple with drought and excessive heat this year, city planners in Boston have something else on their minds: the prospect of rising water.

In this coastal metropolis, scientists and computer models predict that climate change could eventually lead to dramatic increases in sea level around the city. Coupled with a storm surge at high tide, parts of the city could easily end up under water.

The area that’s home to Boston’s Faneuil Hall, the city’s first public market, is one of them. The land the hall was built on was once waterfront property, but by the late 1800s, the growing city needed more room. So the marshes and mudflats along the wharf were filled in.
