solar success book link K.I.S.S. "Keep It Sustainable Silly" Plan for a Global Holiday 12.12 : It's valuable to have Earth Day and World Environment Day, which sound rightly global but not quite so personal. To help the notion that we are all both individually capable and responsible, here's a proposal from the SRD Convenor: please assist by supporting the declaration of a global holiday event to celebrate the major global agreement made on the 12th December 2015 at COP21paris, to limit carbon (Co2-e) emissions...
Annually, on this day we can acknowledge this momentous occasion by celebrating this decision, reviewing what it means, assessing how far we have collectively progressed and importantly how far we have to go and what we all can do. On 12.12 you are invited to K.I.S.S. (metaphorically at least) those who are making good advances in this arena. This day will encourage coming together, communication, reflection and action for positive goals that advance sustainability. Promoting Sustainability by Responsible Design is naturally also encouraged.

Send the message to C40 Mayors (& similar) globally, www.c40.org asking to discuss the concept with other C40 members and make it happen on 12.12.2016. We're open to input on what activities are better to celebrate, venues to decorate, events to hold, etc., to promote the idea. Independent of the C40 response, we can still make such a day happen, to encourage review and action on all that needs to be done in a more lighthearted and positive way. On this day in early December, we may also take a moment to reflect on runaway consumerism, not so much to stop it, but to consider how we can make our actions much more sustainable in the short and longer term from considered and intelligent review. Choose to encourage this idea yourself, the logo here (font is Verdana) & ai file is Open Source and Freely able to be copied and modified if required as long as Greg Campbell DesignOz is acknowledged as the logo & concept creator Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) More art available by request. This K.I.S.S. idea is a work-in-progress and can readily be used in any fair dealing fashion as long as we all remember to..."Keep It Sustainable Silly" 12.12 & beyond : Global relevance

Global Shipping Live Map A superb live graphic that shrouds the hidden reality that nearly all the vessels represented are powered by dirty Bunker fuel, lowest grade, cheap & dirty diesel. So viscous, it has to be heated with a special heating system before use and it often contains relatively high amounts of pollutants, particularly sulfur, which forms sulfur dioxide upon combustion. Now shipping towards you! This industry is reluctant to any change or regulation though many positive ones exist including hi-tech wind harnessing.
