EU bans misleading environmental claims that rely on offsetting theguardian.com/environment/20 Terms such as “climate neutral” or “climate positive” that rely on offsetting will be banned from the EU by 2026 as part of a crackdown on misleading environmental claims. On Wednesday, members of the European parliament [MEPs] voted to outlaw the use of terms such as “environmentally friendly”, “natural”, “biodegradable”, “climate neutral” or “eco” without evidence, while introducing a total ban on using carbon offsetting schemes to substantiate the claims.

Just received notice that the Simplicity Institute has just published a new book, called Paradise Lost? The Climate Crisis and the Human Condition. This book was authored by Emeritus Professor Paul Hoggett. A short article introducing the themes of this book has just been published on the Post Carbon Institute's website, Resilience, available here. At the link you'll find places to access the book both in ebook and paperback. It is available as an ebook on a 'pay what you can' basis (including for free, just edit the price as you see fit). Paradise Lost? is also available in paperback via most major online distributors. Again, see the link here to access the article and access/purchase options. Congratulations to Paul for this fine contribution to the literature that grapples with one of the defining issues of our time.
