The holiday season is a wasteful time of year. Remember to tread lightly on our precious planet!
Australia's capital cities hot on Christmas Day, but Kimberley faces storms
Flood alerts and heatwaves at Christmas. The new normal? Hopefully everyone is safe and sound this holiday.
An incredible time-lapse video of the intense pollution "airpocalypse" in Beijing last week from our Greenpeace friends in China. Watch as the smog leaves Beijing, filmed from the top of one of Beijing's tallest building. December 16-21, Beijing launched a smog red alert for the first time this season. On the last day, the smoggy skies were completely transformed in less than 24 hours. Air quality in eastern China improved dramatically in 2014 and 2015, with the national air pollution action plan coming into force, cuts in coal use and enforcement of new emission standards for power plants and industry. The change was fast and visible – a 20% fall in PM2.5 levels in just two years. But the air in November was worse than a year ago – the second month in a row after a long streak of improvements.

Government could ban Australia most popular type of petrol - unleaded - within two years
Did you know Australia has the lowest quality petrol of the 35 countries in the OECD, below Mexico, Turkey and Estonia? That's dirty. So, do you think we should phase out "unleaded"?
A sustainable prawn for your Christmas plate.
Buying prawns this chrissy? Check out Penny's blog on how to have the tiniest impact on the environment. It's from last year, but the advice is timeless. Know what you're buying. Choose local and small-scale. And of course use the guide: www.prawnguide.org
Australia's greenhouse gas emissions are rising and forecast to miss 2030 target
Merry Christmas, from the Turnbull Government... 😡
Greenpeace Brisbane activist, Sabrina, just met with QLD Enviro' Minister Steven Miles MP, to thank him for his commitment to banning single-use plastic bags. There's still work to do, but for now the pressure is on NSW, VIC & WA to pull their weight! Act now to #BantheBag everywhere >> http://act.gp/2idDGod
Check out these amazing young environmentalists - Lizzie, Sophie and Lily, busking at the South Melbourne Market to raise money for Greenpeace's Save the Reef campaign. Together, they managed to raise $50, which they hope will help to increase awareness about the threats our beautiful Reef is facing from coal pollution and climate change. What an inspiring example of young people taking action for our planet!
