NEW-MINE  – EU Training Network for Resource Recovery Through Enhanced Landfill Mining
 
02:46
Europe has somewhere between 150,000 and 500,000 landfill sites, with an estimated 90% of them being “non-sanitary” landfills, predating the EU Landfill Directive of 1999. These older landfills tend to be filled with municipal solid waste and often lack any environmental protection technology. In order to avoid future environmental and health problems, many of these landfills will soon require expensive remediation measures. This situation might appear bleak, but it does present us with an exciting opportunity for a combined resource-recovery and remediation strategy, which will drastically reduce future remediation costs, reclaim valuable land, while at the same time unlocking valuable resources. However, the widespread adoption of Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM) in the EU, as envisaged by NEW-MINE, urgently requires skilled scientists, engineers, economists and policy makers who can develop cost-effective, environmentally friendly ELFM practices and regulatory frameworks. All this demands a European commitment to concerted, inter- and transdisciplinary research and innovation. This project has received funding from the European Union's EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement No 721185 More Info: http://new-mine.eu/

Open Scope and the WEEE Regulations
 
14:47
The WEEE Regulations are changing – more products are now in scope scope. Domestic light fittings, plugs, dimmers, light switches to name a few. This 15 minute clip explains all the changes and tells lighting producers what they need to do to be compliant. WEEE Compliance for Consumer Lighting Producers From 2019 and on, producers, importers, and own-branders of consumer lighting equipment must comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, WEEE, regulations. They do this by joining a Producer Compliance Scheme, PCS, which will manage their recycling obligations. Very small companies, selling less than five tonnes per year, may alternatively register directly with the Environment Agency. The PCS then has responsibility for undertaking recycling on behalf of its members, to meet its share of a target set by the Government. The size of the target is dependent on the weight of product sold by its members in the previous year. That means all producers must regularly provide their PCS with data regarding the weight of product they sell. Producers must add the crossed wheelie bin symbol onto their product. This is intended to remind consumers that electrical products should be recycled, and not placed into their landfill bin. Recolight have published a guide to WEEE for lighting equipment which can be obtained by contacting the company at [email protected]

Our Plastic, Our Problem (A marine litter info-operetta!)
 
02:45
The Amazing Mr. Smashing sings an info-operetta about plastic in our oceans! [If you would like to use this video for your event, presentation or exhibition, please contact [email protected]]. Our huge level of consumption and the accompanying waste it creates is leading to terrifying amounts of plastic entering our seas. All sorts of unpleasant effects are being discovered by researchers, including plastics acting as magnets for toxic chemicals, which are then being swallowed by sea life. We must act now to stop any more plastic reaching the oceans. There are many ways to do this, and every person can make simple changes in their lives to reduce their impact, but we also need the laws in place to ensure action by European governments. 2014 is the year that the European Commission reviews its various waste policies, including the waste framework directive. This means we have an opportunity to recognise the seriousness of marine litter and take strong steps to reduce waste and improve how it is managed. Let's show the law makers how much we care about our beautiful beaches and seas: like and share this video, using the hashtag #marinelitter and let's make a noise about the problem of plastics in our seas!

This drone boat could help in the fight against climate change - here's why
 
01:11
British scientists deployed three robot boats from Plymouth Harbor this Thursday on a two-week fish-tracking mission in and around Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). Scientists from Britain’s Marine Biological Association have released plaice, sole, brill fish tagged with “pingers” in the surrounding waters. The scientists will study the fishes’ interaction with the environment based on pings picked up by the robot boats and listening stations placed on the seabed. “This technology will give us a new dimension in our understanding of fish movements, residency and migrations in and around the marine protected areas off Plymouth. Understanding how fish use MPAs will be vital in understanding the value of these management tools to conserve fish stocks. One of the aims of the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive is achieving sustainable fisheries, through an ecologically coherent network of MPAs,” project lead Stephen Cotterell of the Marine Biological Association said in a press release. The unmanned boats, the AutoNaut, C-Enduro, and SV3 Waveglider, will run on solar and wave power and will also collect data on the ocean water temperature and salinity. The success of this mission could bring about a new trend in marine exploration, using autonomous boats that can run for months on wind, solar, and wave power. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Poor Agricultural Practice is killing our UK Rivers & Wild Fish
 
00:37
Unsustainable industrial-scale agriculture, and bad agricultural practices, are two of the main reasons that water quality, quantity and wild fish re at risk in the UK... ❌Manure runoff from intensive livestock farming pollutes groundwater with excessive emissions of nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), which choke rivers and damage the food chain. ❌Diffuse pollution from agriculture (pesticides, fertilisers and other agrochemicals) remains one of the biggest threats to the health of the UK’s rivers and the fish that live there. ❌Excessive nitrogen, phosphate and chemicals are present in 37% of surface water bodies. ❌Diffuse pollution from agriculture accounts for 68% of all nutrient and chemical excesses. ❌Farming is responsible for over 50% of nitrogen in water and is a significant source of phosphates.   Back in 2000, the EU adopted extensive legislation to better protect and preserve its water resources, ecosystems and biodiversity: the Water Framework Directive (WFD). Its ambitious targets were set by and agreed by all EU Member States, including the UK. However… ❌There is insufficient political will to properly implement the WFD. ❌These laws are currently being re-assessed and highly likely to be weakened, following commercial and member state lobbying. On the eve that we use such frameworks to set our own Brexit laws, this would be a disastrous blow for the future protection of UK wild fish and their waters. BUT YOU CAN HELP US The European Commission is offering you the chance to have YOUR say through its Public Consultation on the Water Framework Directive. We have even prepared the response that will best ensure that the law is kept safe, which you we can send to the Commission on your behalf in less than 30 seconds if you click here: https://www.salmon-trout.org/protect-water/ and ACT NOW. What about Brexit? Each year, 60 billion euro of EU tax-payers money goes to subsidise harmful agricultural practices that pollute our water bodies and harm our fish, under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) which subsides farmers based on their acreage, rather than their conduct. As we prepare to leave the EU and design and implement our own laws, it is imperative that those who farm sustainably be effectively supported and meaningfully rewarded in their implementation of improved management practices. And vice versa. The process towards this has already begun with the announcement of the Agriculture Bill - read our response here - but there is still much more to be done. Put simply, to help ensure that the highest possible levels of protection are given to our water and wildlife when we exit the EU, we must first ensure that the right protections are upheld across Europe; as these laws will be largely transferred – certainly, any downgrading or weakening of this protection will be difficult to rectify or recover from. So please, for the sake of our wild fish and our freshwaters, ACT NOW! https://www.salmon-trout.org/protect-water/ In just 30 seconds you can use our pre-filled consultation form to the tell the EC to keep our water laws STRONG - taking us one step closer to securing the future safety of wild fish in an uncertain Brexit landscape. #ProtectWater #ProtectWildlife #ProtectWildFish #FutureofCAP

Packaging in the circular economy: a sustainable business?
 
02:45
In December 2015, the European Commission presented a new circular economy package that will impact a wide range of sectors, including the packaging sector. By setting a target for preparing for reuse and recycling of packaging waste of 75% by 2030, the European Commission took an important step towards the circular economy. The European Parliament’s ENVI Committee voted their amendments in January 2017. And the Council is now also intensively discussing the waste directives. The packaging industry plays an important role in the circular economy and the process to reach the target. However retailers and consumers also need to be involved. Questions will include: - How can policymakers set an EU target for recycling of packaging waste that is both ambitious and realistic? - What kind of policy framework is needed for the packaging supply chain to drive investments towards a circular economy? - How can retailers and consumers be encouraged to opt for sustainable packaging?

Heating and cooling: Towards a fossil-free reality?
 
04:10
Today, several renewable technologies are available to decarbonise heating and cooling (H&C) – biomass, solar thermal, geothermal and efficient heat pumps. They are mature and ready to deliver but the market uptake of renewable energies in the H&C sector remains difficult. The Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) is the first piece of EU legislation to address the decarbonisation of the H&C sector, which represents about 50% of Europe’s energy consumption. But while the RED II sets an objective of mainstreaming renewables in H&C, it does not elaborate on the means to deliver. With the Clean Energy Package being finalised, discussions on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) starting, and the mid-century decarbonisation roadmap underway, there is no better time to discuss how the H&C sector can contribute to the EU’s climate and energy objectives. This stakeholder workshop brought together policymakers and other experts to discuss the future of the H&C sector. Questions included: - How can Europe plan a fossil fuel phase-out up to 2050?  - Can renewable energies in H&C reach mass market? - Considering the long investment cycles (15 years), what funding mechanisms have to be put in place to decarbonise the sector? This event was under the patronage of the European Commission on the occasion of Green Week.  EU Green Week 2018 will explore ways in which the EU is helping cities to become better places to live and work. Showcasing policy developments on air quality, noise, nature and biodiversity, waste and water management, it will promote participatory approaches to urban development, networking schemes, and tools for sharing best practices, engaging local authorities and citizens, and encouraging them to share their vision of a sustainable future.

BOOK REVIEW EU ENVIRONMENTAL LAW By Geert Van Calster and Leonie Reins ISBN: 978 1 78254 917 8 (book) 978 1 78536 918 5 (eBook) This book is available electronically in the Elgaronline Law subject collection DOI 10 4337/9781785369185 EDWARD ELGAR PUBLISHING LIMITED ELGAR EUROPEAN LAW www.e-elgar.com www.elgaronline.com AN IMPORTANT LEGAL RESEARCH TOOL FROM EDWARD ELGAR ON EUROPEAN UNION ENVIRONMENT LAW AT A TIME OF GREAT CHANGE ON THE CONTINENT An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you are an environmental lawyer, or indeed any kind of lawyer, you will need no reminder of the importance of EU environmental law, even in the face of the UK’s imminent departure from the EU. The environment after all, knows no boundaries. One of the latest publications from Elgar’s European Law series, this book, say the co-authors, can be used both as a handbook and as a general introduction to European environmental regulation which, they add, ‘is becoming more complex and interrelated, making it an emerging field of study for European law graduates’. Authors Geert Van Calster and Leonie Reins are from KU Leuven, Belgium. Professor Van Calster is also at Kings College, London and Monash University, Australia. As environmental law in the European Union grows increasingly complex and persistently confusing, the writers have fortunately provided a cogent, yet detailed and analytical examination of it. There is certainly a formidable amount of research and analysis on a variety of environmental issues in this one compact volume. Part I of the book surveys the framework of European environmental law and the principles that govern it, with the first chapter featuring a brief yet illuminating survey of its history. Interestingly, it is pointed out that in the nineteen-fifties at the founding stage of the EU, i.e., the European Coal and Steel Community -- and later when the 1957 Treaty of Rome established the EEC -- there were no policies or legal provisions directly related to the environment. By the 1970s, however, the environment had emerged as an issue of international importance. Of special interest to lawyers (as well as environmentalists) is Part II of the book on substantive legislation, which covers a range of areas, from biodiversity and nature conservation through to legislation on water protection, noise and air pollution, climate change, waste and chemicals -- and approaches relating to trade. And it goes without saying that the academic community rely more and more heavily on these excellent research handbooks which independent publishers, Edward Elgar, produce for us as practitioners and scholars in the legal profession. All this, plus tables of cases and of legislation – including directives and regulations – make this book an important work of reference, not only for practitioners and scholars, but for anyone interested in a thoroughly contemporary study of environmental issues. The publication date is cited as at 2017 and is available in print and digitally.

Peter Kohler & Stefan Leutenegger: "The Plastic Tide: Vision from the Skies" | Talks at Google
 
54:11
Peter Kohler, founder of The Plastic Tide project, and Dr Stefan Leutenegger, Lecturer in Robotics at Imperial College London, discuss how the ocean is under siege from a ever-increasing tide of waste, and how technology like machine learning and drones can help us fix the issue. Threatening not only a vital economic resource worth an estimated $5 trillion a year, but also humanity’s very own life support. The Plastic Tide initiative was started almost two years ago, with the aim of quantifying the problem using drone imagery of UK beaches and beyond: raised awareness and precise data will hopefully drive solutions at societal, political, and technological levels. They have collected a huge database of drone imagery around UK beaches last year, and a prototype algorithm developed already combines a deep-learning based plastic detection scheme in the images with geo-referenced mapping. The speakers will show early results and present related research in the space of localisation, mapping, and drone flight; and furthermore sketch the way forward to limit the plastic tide swamping our oceans.

We Were Lied To About 9/11 - Episode 11 - Thomas Drake
 
02:06:14
Please fast forward 48 seconds to start the interview. Youtube made me remove the song I was using. Sorry about that. Thomas Drake is a former senior executive with the National Security Agency, a United States Air Force and Navy veteran, CIA intelligence analyst, computer software expert and whistleblower. While at NSA, he blew the whistle on multi-billion dollar programmatic fraud, waste and abuse; the critical loss and coverup of 9/11 intelligence; government wrongdoing; and a dragnet electronic mass surveillance and data mining program conducted on a vast scale by the NSA (with the approval of the White House) after 9/11. Mr. Drake argued that this program violated and subverted the Constitution as well as individual sovereignty and privacy, while weakening national security and fundamentally eroding our civil liberties. In April 2010 he was charged by the US Department of Justice with a 10 felony count Espionage Act indictment facing 35 years in prison and declared an enemy of the state. All 10 original charges were dropped in July 2011 after Mr. Drake pled to a single misdemeanor count of exceeding the authorized use of a government computer with no fine or prison time. He is the 2011 recipient of the Ridenhour Truth Telling Prize, and with Jesselyn Radack the co-recipient of the 2011 Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence Award and the 2012 Hugh M. Hefner 1st Amendment Award. He was also a visiting professor of strategic leadership and information strategies at the National Defense University with the Industrial College of the Armed Forces. Previous to NSA, he was a principal in a couple of dot coms. He has 12 years of industry experience in change leadership, senior management, organizational leadership and development, quality assurance, software and systems engineering (having analyzed over 150 million lines of code), learning strategies, acquisition and program management, operations and technology life-cycle integration as a contractor and consultant with both government and commercial clients including Fortune 500 and Fortune 50 companies. He was at Booz | Allen | Hamilton as a management, strategy and technology consultant and software quality engineer from 1991-1998. He served in the military for some 14 years as an active duty US Air Force aircrew member performing cryptologic linguist duties on the RC-135 airborne reconnaissance platform and as a Mission Crew Supervisor on the EC-130H electronic warfare mission during the latter years of the Cold War. He also served in the US Navy as a reserve commissioned all-source intelligence officer assigned to the National Military Joint Intelligence Center at the Pentagon serving on the ELINT, Terrorism, and Middle East/North Africa desks in the 1990s. He also had a short stint as an imagery intelligence analyst at the CIA in the late 80s. Mr. Drake is the founder and senior leader of Knowpari Systems LLC, a boutique leadership development and executive consulting firm formed in 2008 and focused on business intelligence, IT-corporate governance, risk management, operations analysis, systems thinking, strategic advising and deep learning through people, process and technology – expanding capacity, increasing performance and enhancing social and relational well-being for individuals, teams, and organizations. His outreach and speaking expertise center on delivering dynamic, interactive and compelling content in the areas of strategic leadership, international relations, contemporary international problems, professional ethics, executive management, business intelligence and decision support systems, resource strategy, complex systems (social and technical), human relations, dynamics of the information and knowledge age, information management, organizational sustainability, executive leadership, 21st Century issues, governance and decision-making, the Constitution and civil liberties as well as whistleblowing. He now writes, speaks and teaches around the world on whistleblowing, Constitutional rights, civil liberties, secrecy, surveillance and abusive corporate and government power. He has dedicated himself to defending life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Occupational safety and health
 
52:49
Occupational safety and health (OSH) also commonly referred to as occupational health and safety (OHS) or workplace health and safety (WHS) is an area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goals of occupational safety and health programs include to foster a safe and healthy work environment. OSH may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment. In the United States the term occupational health and safety is referred to as occupational health and occupational and non-occupational safety and includes safety for activities outside of work. Occupational safety and health can be important for moral, legal, and financial reasons. In common-law jurisdictions, employers have a common law duty (reflecting an underlying moral obligation) to take reasonable care for the safety of their employees, Statute law may build upon this to impose additional general duties, introduce specific duties and create government bodies with powers to regulate workplace safety issues: details of this will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. . Good OSH practices can also reduce employee injury and illness related costs, including medical care, sick leave and disability benefit costs. This video is targeted to blind users.

First-generation technologies, which are already mature and economically competitive, include biomass, hydroelectricity, geothermal power and heat. Second-generation technologies are market-ready and are being deployed at the present time; they include solar heating, photovoltaics, wind power, solar thermal power stations, and modern forms of bioenergy. Third-generation technologies require continued R&D efforts in order to make large contributions on a global scale and include advanced biomass gasification, hot-dry-rock geothermal power, and ocean energy. As of 2012, renewable energy accounts for about half of new nameplate electrical capacity installed and costs are continuing to fall.Public policy and political leadership helps to "level the playing field" and drive the wider acceptance of renewable energy technologies. Countries such as Germany, Denmark, and Spain have led the way in implementing innovative policies which has driven most of the growth over the past decade. As of 2014, Germany has a commitment to the "Energiewende" transition to a sustainable energy economy, and Denmark has a commitment to 100% renewable energy by 2050. There are now 144 countries with renewable energy policy targets. Renewable energy continued its rapid growth in 2015, providing multiple benefits. There was a new record set for installed wind and photovoltaic capacity (64GW and 57GW) and a new high of US$329 Billion for global renewables investment. A key benefit that this investment growth brings is a growth in jobs. The top countries for investment in recent years were China, Germany, Spain, the United States, Italy, and Brazil. Renewable energy companies include BrightSource Energy, First Solar, Gamesa, GE Energy, Goldwind, Sinovel, Targray, Trina Solar, Vestas, and Yingli.Climate change concerns are also driving increasing growth in the renewable energy industries. According to a 2011 projection by the (IEA) International Energy Agency, solar power generators may produce most of the world's electricity within 50 years, reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.Renewable power has been more effective in creating jobs than coal or oil in the United States.

Environmental protection
 
26:41
Environmental protection is a practice of protecting the natural environment on individual, organizational or governmental levels, for the benefit of both the natural environment and humans. Due to the pressures of population and technology, the biophysical environment is being degraded, sometimes permanently. This has been recognized, and governments have begun placing restraints on activities that cause environmental degradation. Since the 1960s, activity of environmental movements has created awareness of the various environmental issues. There is no agreement on the extent of the environmental impact of human activity, and protection measures are occasionally criticized. Academic institutions now offer courses, such as environmental studies, environmental management and environmental engineering, that teach the history and methods of environment protection. Protection of the environment is needed due to various human activities. Waste production, air pollution, and loss of biodiversity (resulting from the introduction of invasive species and species extinction) are some of the issues related to environmental protection.

Previously one of the most fossil fuel dependent countries in the region, Sweden today is the EU Member State with the highest share of renewables. During this presentation, Per-Anders Widell, Deputy Director of Sweden’s Ministry of Environment and Energy, speaks about this structural change and the policies that have made the greatest impact. He talks about the new long-term energy policy agreement that aims for 100% renewables by 2040 and other current priorities for the development of the Swedish energy system.
Electronic waste
 
39:48
Electronic waste describes discarded electrical or electronic devices. There is a lack of consensus as to whether the term should apply to resale, reuse, and refurbishing industries, or only to a product that cannot be used for its intended purpose. Informal processing of electronic waste in developing countries may cause serious health and pollution problems, though these countries are also most likely to reuse and repair electronics. All electronic scrap components, such as CRTs, may contain contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants. Even in developed countries recycling and disposal of e-waste may involve significant risk to workers and communities and great care must be taken to avoid unsafe exposure in recycling operations and leaking of materials such as heavy metals from landfills and incinerator ashes. Scrap industry and U.S. EPA officials agree that materials should be managed with caution This video is targeted to blind users.

Although the procedures of re-use, donation and repair are not strictly recycling, they are other common sustainable ways to dispose of IT waste. In 2009, 38% of computers and a quarter of total electronic waste was recycled in the United States, 5% and 3% up from 3 years prior respectively. Since its inception in the early 1990s, more and more devices are recycled worldwide due to increased awareness and investment. Electronic recycling occurs primarily in order to recover valuable rare earth metals and precious metals, which are in short supply, as well as plastics and metals. These are resold or used in new devices after purification, in effect creating a circular economy. However one can also make use of the useful components of the dead computers that may be damaged beyond repair so as to make or use the parts on new computers which may cover on material costs as another cheap way of recycling at homes and working areas. Recycling is considered environmentally friendly because it prevents hazardous waste, including heavy metals and carcinogens, from entering the atmosphere, landfill or waterways. While electronics consist a small fraction of total waste generated, they are far more dangerous. There is stringent legislation designed to enforce and encourage the sustainable disposal of appliances, the most notable being the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive of the European Union and the United States National Computer Recycling Act.

Members of the movement advocate the payment of higher prices to exporters, as well as improved social and environmental standards. The movement focuses in particular on commodities, or products which are typically exported from developing countries to developed countries, but also consumed in domestic markets (e.g. Brazil, India and Bangladesh) most notably handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, wine, sugar, fresh fruit, chocolate, flowers and gold. The movement seeks to promote greater equity in international trading partnerships through dialogue, transparency, and respect. It promotes sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers in developing countries. Fair trade is grounded in three core beliefs; first, producers have the power to express unity with consumers. Secondly, the world trade practices that currently exist promote the unequal distribution of wealth between nations. Lastly, buying products from producers in developing countries at a fair price is a more efficient way of promoting sustainable development than traditional charity and aid.Fair trade labelling organizations commonly use a definition of fair trade developed by FINE, an informal association of four international fair trade networks: Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International, World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Network of European Worldshops and European Fair Trade Association (EFTA). Specifically, fair trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency, and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. Fair trade organizations, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising, and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade.There are several recognized fair trade certifiers, including Fairtrade International (formerly called FLO, Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International), IMO, Make Trade Fair and Eco-Social. Additionally, Fair Trade USA, formerly a licensing agency for the Fairtrade International label, broke from the system and is implementing its own fair trade labelling scheme, which has resulted in controversy due to its inclusion of independent smallholders and estates for all crops. In 2008, Fairtrade International certified approximately (€3.4B) of products. The World Trade Organization publishes annual figures on the world trade of goods and services. The fair trade movement is popular in the UK, where there are 500 Fairtrade towns, 118 universities, over 6,000 churches, and over 4,000 UK schools registered in the Fairtrade Schools Scheme. In 2011, over 1.2 million farmers and workers in more than 60 countries participated in Fairtrade International's fair trade system, which included €65 million in fairtrade premium paid to producers for use developing their communities. According to Fairtrade International, nearly six out of ten consumers have seen the Fairtrade mark and almost nine in ten of them trust it.Some criticisms have been raised about fair trade systems. One 2015 study in a journal published by the MIT Press concluded that producer benefits were close to zero because there was an oversupply of certification, and only a fraction of produce classified as fair trade was actually sold on fair trade markets, just enough to recoup the costs of certification. Some research indicates that the implementation of certain fair trade standards can cause greater inequalities in some markets where these rigid rules are inappropriate for the specific market. In the fair trade debate there are complaints of failure to enforce the fair trade standards, with producers, cooperatives, importers and packers profiting by evading them. One proposed alternative to fair trade is dire ...
