Environment and Climate
Nature is a common good, essential for global well-being. Yet corporations and politicians often prioritize short-term gains over sustainability, which leads to massive environmental damage, disruption of ecosystems, and climate change.

Through comprehensive reviews of environmental issues, we raise awareness and aim to indirectly affect decision-making in energy, industry, construction, and more.

Conservation areas

Cities and industries consistently expand into the natural environment and endanger local ecosystems, even in conservation areas. State-related actors and corporations often ignore the short-term consequences and adverse effects of invasive construction, mining, and other operations. We monitor the articles about protected areas, corporations, and lobbyists, work on explanatory texts about valuable natural areas, and prevent greenwashing in w.

Coal is the most widespread and dirty energy source, responsible for catastrophic air pollution and climate alterations. Its long-term health effects result in over half a million deaths yearly, including roughly 100,000 in Europe. Coal mining itself caused devastating consequences for ecology.

Coal is cost-ineffective compared to solar and wind energy, but corporate lobbyists and state actors in coal-exporting countries hamper the green transition. Our explainers on energy aim to bust the misconceptions about dirty and green energy, stop the greenwashing attempts by the coal industry, and elaborate on the actual consequences of coal mining and coal energy.
Waste and plastics

We oppose misinformation about waste and recycling—and the myths about the easy ways to solve the problem of plastic pollution. We focus on scientific knowledge-based approaches, promote ecological responsibility, and clean up greenwashing.

Forests are mistakenly considered an unlimited, instantly renewable resource. This common misconception leads to a reckless, short-sighted attitude toward nature. Destructive deforestation and forest fires evoked by human-driven climate change lead to more damage than any reforestation can compensate for. We show an accurate picture and monitor the activities of lobbyists and loggers of ill repute.
