These are the articles that have attracted the most interest on our site in the past week, and we’re republishing the links here to ensure you don’t miss out.
Research by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) that highlighted the increasingly dangerous threat posed to people in the developing world by mercury, made for Blue & Green Tomorrow’s most-read article of the past seven days.
The launch of the “world’s first” open-access renewable energy atlas, produced by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), was also popular among our readers.
We reported on Greenpeace’s quest to raise funding for an advert in the financial press that exposed oil giant Shell, as well as the Royal Bank of Scotland’s imminent Libor fixing fine.
Last Friday, it was 50 years since the so-called ‘big freeze’ hit the UK. We donned our nostalgic hats in an attempt to relate the famously freezing conditions in the ‘60s with our current cold snap.
Reacting to the previous weeks’ report on global food waste, Paul West of the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment wrote how the research highlights a key opportunity to improve both current and future global food security, and we also covered the news of the Green Investment Bank’s latest appointment.
On Tuesday, we asked whether holidaying in the polar regions was a responsible thing to do, and a day later, looked back 12 years to when a fuel tanker ran aground off the Galapagos Islands – one of the worries associated with tourism in vulnerable places.
A survey for a European Commission report on air quality revealed earlier this month that 70% of EU citizens think renewable energy should be prioritised in the next 30 years – and we analysed the data with a brand new infographic.
Finally, the three most-read reports of the last seven days were The Guide to Sustainable Banking 2012, The Guide to Sustainable Tourism 2012 and The Guide to Sustainable Investment 2012.
