Global Warming, Climate Change, and Winter Weather

 As the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change met in Cancun, Mexico last week to forge a pact to cut greenhouse gas emissions, the unusually cool weather in Mexico, Europe, and elsewhere gave skeptics the opportunity to poke fun at those claiming the planet is warming. But the truth is that these episodes of cold weather have not tipped the evidential balance toward an overall cooling trend.  The World Meterological Organization maintains that global warming remains real in spite of the bouts of cold weather (also see this more technical discussion). 

Humana Day 1


 For the last two years Planet Aid UK has teamed up with its sister organisation Green World Recycling at the RWM Recycling & Waste Management Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham with a focus on 'Community Recycling Nationwide'.

On our stand we had on display examples of the clothes banks used by both of our organisations, as well as information about the areas within the UK in which we collect, details about the service we offer and posters displaying some of the important projects that Planet Aid UK and Green World Recycling are able to support as a result of public donations. Two examples of such projects are 'Light for the Millions, supplying solar lighting to Indian villages, and  the Farmers Clubs in Southern Africa, which currently organise over 75,000 local people.
