“Our vision of a #zerowaste society is possible, but without political will at the national and local levels, this will become another empty government slogan,” said 2003 #GoldmanPrize winner Von Hernandez about his recent campaign to keep the #Philippine’s #waste #incineration ban in place amid renewed government attempts to lift it.

Waste incineration produces some of the most toxic chemicals known to science, including hormone-disrupting dioxins. The incineration process produces ash with concentrated amounts of heavy metals, such as lead, arsenic and cadmium that, when buried, pollute groundwater for generations.

Once completed, the Gibe 3 #dam on the Omo River in #Ethiopia, will reduce #water flows to #Kenya’s Lake #Turkana by 70%, drastically shirking the lake, killing off #ecosystems and jeopardizing the survival of some 300,000 of the world’s poorest people. 2012 Goldman Prize winner Ikal Angelei and our partners at International Rivers are shining a spotlight on these local communities and the imminent threat to their survival.

“We have the right to continue our own way of life, and we are so thankful for Obama’s decision.”

“Climate change is an issue that is clearly related to our #Christian responsibility to care for the #Earth and to care for the #poor and vulnerable in our midst,” said 2012 #GoldmanPrize winner Father Edwin Gariguez. “Those principles are at stake of being violated when we do not avert or address the causes of #climatechange.”

As the Philippines welcomed the arrival of Pope Francis last week, local Catholic Church groups and civil society organizations urged him to send a strong message on climate change, saying “Clearly climate change is a moral issue and we in the Church cannot remain passive bystanders.”

Before New York’s statewide ban on #fracking, dozens of small towns had already banned the practice in their municipalities, muddling the #economic boon forecasted by #industry proponents and creating the type of political atmosphere for Governor Cuomo to act decisively.

Representatives from nearly 200 countries gathered in #Lima, Peru at the beginning of December for the final round of #climate negotiations before the Paris Climate Summit in 2015. The general consensus suggests that #COP20 was yet another missed opportunity for meaningful #action to be taken on addressing #climatechange, a view reflected by 2014 Goldman Prize winner Ruth Buendia. http://bit.ly/13z2tb1
