The final giant chunk of an overturned cargo ship was removed from waters along the coast of Georgia on Monday, almost a year after demolition began on the wreck that tipped over with 4,200 automobiles in its cargo decks. Weighing more than 4,000 metric tons (4,410 U.S. tons), the eighth and last section of the South Korean freighter Golden Ray left the wreck site off St. Simons Island after a crane lowered it onto a big barge outfitted with a special cradle to hold the wreckage. “This is the end of the wreck removal phase," said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Himes, a spokesman for the multiagency command in charge of the demolition.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A man in Florida’s largest city wrote to officials that the smell and flies were getting bad, after six weeks of waiting for his yard waste to be picked up. Other residents sent photos of overflowing bins, stacked plastic bags and littered lawns. At one point, the fed-up neighbors of Almira Street in Jacksonville threatened to rent a truck and dump their trash on the steps of City Hall. The disruption to America’s economy created by the coronavirus pandemic has led to mass c
A group of recyclers in the Philippines is trying to ease the country's worsening plastic waste crisis by turning bottles, single-use sachets and snack food wrappers that clog rivers and spoil beaches into building materials. The Plastic Flamingo, or "The Plaf", as they are commonly known, collect the waste, shred it and then mould it into posts and planks called "eco-lumber" that can be used for fencing, decking or even to make disaster-relief shelters. Having collected over 100 tonnes of plastic waste to date, the social enterprise is doing its bit to address a local problem that has global ramifications.

The onslaught of storms and bomb cyclones over the weekend kicked California's rainy season off on a high note for those praying for rain, but the state's water officials remain cautiously optimistic as to whether the storms stand as an omen for more rain to come or if the season's "wildcard" will exacerbate the drought. After a scorching summer, experts say it would take 7 to 10 inches of rainfall to get the soil damp enough to provide runoff to depleted reservoirs such as Sonoma County's Lake

''To the companies that are greenwashing’ / ''Ein Greenwashing zu betreiben'’ / ''We are calling out greenwashing today’’ / ''It's exactly that sort of greenwashing narrative’’ / "They're showing us a pretty image with 'greenwashing'G is for greenwashing. Climate activists have accused some oil companies, big retail brands, banks, and even countries of doing it.But what exactly does it mean?The number of environmental claims made by various companies and organizations is rising...as consumers are increasingly demanding more sustainable goods, and companies find themselves under pressure to hit their Environmental, Social, and Governance - ESG - targets/But when those claims are perceived as exaggerated or not genuine, they might be accused of ‘greenwashing’, i.e. painting something green to APPEAR more environmentally friendly. (EU parliament paint shot)Think of an apparel maker that uses recycled fabrics but has coal-powered factories, or oil companies claiming to be renewable energy leaders, and cooking oil made with genetically modified organisms but branded as "natural.""Eco", "green", and "natural" are common phrases of greenwashing.They are used broadly and there is no scientific standard to meet, even though some regulators have tried to set limits.Activists say ‘greenwashing’ is a major problem in the face of climate change…and it’s likely to be a hot topic at the upcoming COP26 summit.''They have been drowning us in promises and not delivering.’’"You are not sticking to the Paris agreement, no matter how much you greenwash it."A review of websites by global consumer authorities found four in 10 promoting products and services in a way that could be misleading. That's according to Britain's Competition and Markets Authority.In October, Greenpeace published a study of social media ads by energy companies Shell, TotalEnergies, Preem, Eni, Repsol and Fortum.The environmental group classified 63% of the ads as greenwashing, given that the companies remain among the largest emitters of greenhouse gases.In responses, Shell, TotalEnergies, and Eni rejected the "greenwashing" label or said they felt justified in profiling their green credentials. All three companies have plans to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.Some of the greenwashing claims are facing challenges with regulators, courts and by the public.When greenwashing undermines confidence in consumer goods, companies and governments, it becomes more difficult to convince people that their actions matter.
