Blame Canada for a great vacation!
You may have never heard of Fogo Island, but its new hotel makes it worth the visit. Forbes Travel Guide has the inside scoop on what makes this locale so special.

Bravo to at least one athlete who spoke up about the disconnect between the Olympics and real life.

Hi folks

I am taking this course because I want to know about infrastructure financing particularly the business case with the view to integrating the financial side with the social and environmental benefits and trying to include those aspects into the risk evaluation of infra projects.  Looking forward to it.

Great article and a great conversation with some great bon mots.  Pretty unusual for a topic about a serious matter makes me laugh out loud!
Patricia Mulroy talks about climate adaptation, rancher Cliven Bundy, and the day she thought Las Vegas had run out of water.

Moving Society to a greener more sustainable world through carbon markets and pricing, greening ICT and articulating the benefits of green capital projects
Introduction
Working in a number of areas with some overlap between them, all in the areas of sustainability and addressing the impacts of humanity on the planet and where we live.  I have expertise and am working in the following areas;

Understanding the environmental benefits of investments in capital projects at the municipal level. This includes energy and greenhouse gas benefits, water savings and waste diversion as well as improved soil and water conditions.

Carbon management including carbon pricing and markets and policy and design issues around cap and trade programs;

Green or Sustainable ICT, including Carbon Neutral IT and Carbon Neutral Networks and determining the greenhouse gas emissions associated with datacentres and telco networks.  These include to some extent a lifecycle approach as well.  I am also an advisor on the development of an ICT sector supplement being managed by the WRI  and I am a member of a Canadian standards committee on Sustainable ICT.
