Some environment-related news events and community happenings that have turned up in this bizarre period of we-are-about-to-be un-locked-down but not-just yet. The green energy debate has continued to run in circles in America, despite (or perhaps because of) the announcement from President Biden that he would re-enter the USA as a fully participating member of the Paris Climate Agreements. The conservative coal and fossil-fuel lobby, although they took a bit of a knock, came out fighting.
