On Dec. 27, 2011, game developer Just Add Water released an HD remake of the under-appreciated Xbox game Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath. Like the previous three games in the Oddworld franchise, Stranger’s Wrath is at its heart an environmental game, a quirky first person shooter with an important message about the control of natural resources and the threat of unregulated corporate practices to the natural world.

A comprehensive report about the climate-induced vulnerability of societies, released yesterday at COP 16 by the humanitarian research organisation DARA, throws more light on the economic and humanitarian consequences of global warming. According to the “Climate Vulnerabilty Monitor”, rising temperatures and its after effects (storm-tides, droughts, wildfires etc.) already cause up to 350,000 deaths per year. If action is not taken, this number might climb to 1 million deaths per year from 2030.

While the tar sands of Alberta, Canada have long been the poster child for how far the system will go to feed its addiction, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for shale gas is bringing these extreme extraction processes to the doorsteps of much greater numbers of people. The destruction of the sparsely inhabited forests of Canada may have only evoked token outrage but the sacrifice of areas much closer to major population centres is now being demanded. The desperate thirst for fossil fuels is driving the frenzy that is threatening the countryside and environments of some of the most affluent areas on the planet.

"Blunk is part of a small movement of engineers and homeowners who are taking President Barack Obama's vision of building energy-efficient homes to another level. They are inspired by "passive houses" in Germany that are so well-insulated and energy-efficient they eliminate the need for a conventional heating system."

"How many more green scams, cons and generous slices of wishful thinking are out there? We want to name and shame them before the whole green movement gets a bad reputation. "Green" has another meaning after all - naive. And we cannot afford that." The Guardian launches a new column looking at greenwash.
