Sport Tottenham's clash with Chelsea will be first net zero carbon fixture
Grass is good. Lawns are terrible.
Grasslands have long been considered “wastelands.” They’re anything but.Trees offer all kinds of benefits, from absorbing climate-warming emissions to providing refuge for animals, and we’re losing them at a blistering pace. But in our push to restock the world’s forests, we’ve largely ignored — and in some cases harmed — another important ecosystem that offers a similar set of benefits: grasslands.
The derby betweenand this weekend is being used to raise awareness and inspire people in the UK to reduce their carbon footprint.
With the clash branded as #GameZero, Sky have teamed up with Jamie Redknapp and Mark Wright to help push families to make changes for the environment.
The initiative, a partnership between Sky and Spurs to host the world's first net zero carbon major football fixture, is supported by CUP26 and the.
CUP26 is a tournament for supporters keen to get involved from home in cutting emissions and scoring points for their football clubs.
China’s disruption of ocean carbon sinks betrays its climate commitments
Vitally important 'blue carbon' sinks — marine ecosystems that capture and store carbon — are being threatened by China's massive ocean expansion.Blue carbon is a strategic global climate asset, but disruptions to it are currently not even systematically measured, much less reported, by leading disruptor China or any other nation. Kerry can publicly highlight the issue and begin making the case for factoring seabed and marine ecosystem disruption into the global climate policy equation.
Redknapp and Wright, his makeshift co-commentator for the day, have celebrated the little wins people can achieve in their lives to reduce their carbon footprint.
The short film will be launched ahead of Sky's coverage of the showdown between the two London clubs tomorrow.
Viewers will see Redknapp and Wright celebrating the simple acts that make a difference, such as hanging the washing on the line to eating leftovers.
'Like most parents, I worry about what the future world my kids will live in will be like,' Redknapp said. 'So being a part of this latest Sky Zero initiative is a huge privilege and celebrates the power of teamwork at its finest.'
Wright, meanwhile, added: 'I'm no eco-expert but it's amazing to see what actions we can all take, day-to-day, to help save our planet.
Beef industry campaign claims cattle carbon emissions can be reduced
The beef industry, in a new promotional campaign, claims it can be part of the climate change solution. But does the claim stack up? This is what some experts told us.That could be a good line for the industry and the federal government to run ahead of the Glasgow climate summit, but a leading greenhouse researcher says a net reduction in methane would not be enough to bring the temperature down, just limit the damage.
'It's definitely opened my eyes to changes I can make at home.'
Gary Hughes, Director of Football at Sky Sports, said: 'At Sky, we have set ourselves the ambition of being net zero carbon by 2030 and want to inspire our customers to #GoZero with us.
'Our new short film aims to spur football fans into action by emphasising how much the small, everyday actions can create real, impactful change.
'We wanted to create something that would not only celebrate Game Zero, but also dramatise the ways in which families across the country can make changes in their own lives and reduce their carbon footprint.'
Arsenal vs Tottenham: Who are the players with a point to prove? .
Arsenal host Tottenham on Sunday in a huge north London derby. Harry Kane is the fixture's top scorer but he comes in under pressure after a slow start to the season. But who else has a point to prove?It was less than a month ago that Tottenham defeated Norwich 1-0 to top the Premier League table, still to concede in three wins from as many games as Nuno Espirito Santo received lavish praise - and subsequently the manager of the month award.
