Why The Rush for Nuclear Power?

The Kalikasan Institute raises concerns why there is a rush by proponents of H.B. 4631 seeking the recommissioning of the mothballed Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP).

The Philippines is endowed with sufficient renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and geothermal that if sufficiently developed as intended by the recently passed Renewable Energy Law will be more than enough to meet our energy needs in the next few decades.


Nepalese Climate Action - December 6

THE newly formed network based in Kathmandu, Nepalese Youth for Climate Action, are organising two major events to be held in Butwal and Kathmandu on December 6, 2008.

With the help of local NGOs Clean Energy Nepal (CEN) and Collective Institution for Research and Action (CIRA), many young people have been involved in the organisation of these events.

In Kathmandu, 500 participants will be gathered at a local sports ground to start a Run for Climate.

Joining them will be 50 electric cycles, and local experts and celebrities.


A tragedy foretold

The hapless people of the Kosi flood plain in northern Bihar were told that the Kosi embankment project would usher in a new era of prosperity and hope for them. These areas are submerged under water for many months each year. Suresh Nautiyal reviews DK Mishra's book, which traces the history of this engineered tragedy


Walk Against Warming, Australia

The Global Day of Action came early to Australia when, on 15 November 2008, a Walk Against Warming saw concerned citizens from Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and Northern Territory come together in their respective cities to show our political leaders that Australians are deeply concerned about global warming.

These photos are from the Brisbane walk where local campaigners, Elissa Jenkins and Emma Hine, held an APGN banner and were followed behind by many Greens supporters with their Green triangles.

Future of the Global Greens: Taiwan’s Perspective, Taiwan’s Role

Speech by Green Party Taiwan delegate at the Global Greens Congress in São Paulo, Brazil, 3 May 2008

Thank you Global Greens for inviting us to Brazil to take part in this very important conference. Many of you may not know that Brazil does not recognize Taiwan passports, and that our delegation was only able to obtain visas to join this conference on account of the intercession of the Brazilian Green Party. We therefore give our special thanks to the Brazilian Greens and all members of the organizing committee.
