Cutting down on food waste is #3 on Project Drawdown’s list of solutions to climate change (we haven’t even gotten to fossil fuels yet!). Number 2 is onshore wind production, primarily using windfarms, and that’s an infrastructure item that the ordinary person might have difficulty installing, although there are…
From CleanTechnica, an article about Harbour Air, which they say is the world’s largest floatplane-only airline, which is switching all their aircraft from fossil fuels to electricity. They fly about 500,000 passengers annually. and yes, this is short hops, not intercontinental, but as one commenter on the article…

Number one on Project Drawdown’s areas of concern is not fossil fuels, or plastics, or factory farming. Number on on the list is refrigerant management, and that’s because refrigerants are thousands, yes, thousands of times more dangerous in terms of global warming than carbon dioxide.
I had planned to start addressing Project Drawdown’s “100 Solutions to Reverse Global Warming”, starting with number one, BUT; I see that they have an “eco challenge coming up, from April 3 to April 24. So I’m going to link to that instead.
We all know that we are slowly hemorrhaging commenters, and very few new commenters are finding us, because we are no longer on the Jezebel pulldown menu.
Empty Wheel is starting a series which aims to explain the Green New Deal. The comments are very articulate too.
In addition to “Eco-tips” posts, I’ll also try to post positive news in smaller bites.
I’d like to continue the conversation that commenter vulcansareheartbreakers started a couple of weeks ago regarding environmental concerns. And right away kinja is pissing me off, because it’s linked treehugger in the wrong spot and I can’t get rid of it. grrrr.
The closest neighbours would be 4-7 miles away.
Because we can’t do a straight share anymore, and I hope people can get to the original comment from here.

This is amazingly cool!
Man, it’s been so long since I posted anything! Anyway; for some reason youtube has been “recommending for me”, all these martial arts movie clips, and I keep seeing Zhang Ziyi films coming up.
Jez commenter eliza-cat is in a bad situation, and has okayed a share here to see if anyone has any advice. It’s probably a good idea to reply to her original post, rather than my post here. (grr; kinja won’t allow a straight share anymore, so I hope this works)
