The report from Blue Marine Foundation recently published includes a host of impressive achievements, from protecting marine parks off the coast of Patagonia to developing the potential for Blue Carbon to apply a monetary value to the oceans. I particularly liked this comment: “Monday June 13 2022 will forever be a redletter day in the protection of the waters around Britain, and will go down as the date of a great leap forward in the rewilding of the world’s oceans.

Meanwhile, ClientEarth has commenced legal action against the directors of Shell, the giant energy company, alleging that the Company’s plans for further fossil fuel exploration and development will be bad for shareholders, as well as for the rest of the world.
Over in the USA Carbon180 has been reporting on the encouraging use of Direct Air Capture technology to trap CO2 within concrete.
