Could Fossil Fuel Giants Be Tried for Homicide?

Fossil fuels are deadly. That, we’ve known for a long time – a worryingly long time, given the evidence that has been mounting against oil, coal, and gas for decades now. While we face other risks to our health and well-being when we’re out in the world – cigarette smoke, for instance – no other danger has such a catastrophic and widespread impact on the very planet on which we depend for survival. 

From air pollution to extreme heat, flooding, drought, fire and famine, the knock-on effects of the climate crisis are all deadly.

Unfortunately, the frequency of these stories is set to increase further still. But why is this happening? Is it all just an unfortunate series of coincidences, or evidence of a more significant problem arriving on the UK’s shores?

Climate Change and Carbon Footprints: How Worried is the Average Consumer?

There’s a lot of discourse at present regarding the benefits of businesses actively signposting their commitment to the climate crisis, and doing their bit to reduce the negative impact that modern life is having on the environment.

Is the UK's Workforce Without Critical Green Skills?

The green transition will cease in 2050. By the middle of the 21st century, the globe will be taking its first steps and breaths of complete carbon neutrality. It should be a more just world – of environmental justice, working environments, and living dignity. All the things that contribute to carbon neutrality should also contribute to a more just world. Or at least that’s the goal.
