2 Scottish Cities Compete to Be First in UK to Go Totally Carbon Neutral #climatechange #carbonneutral

By

Glasgow wants to become the first city in the UK to be truly carbon neutral, aiming to hit zero emissions “well before” the national target of 2045 that Scotland set on Tuesday.  It’s after Scottish National Party (SNP) leader Nicola Sturgeon declared a climate emergency on April 28 (before Britain did). Scotland as a whole already provides a quarter of Britain’s renewable energy because of its vast array of wind farms. However Glasgow — Britain’s third largest city —  wants to do more, and achieve a historic landmark to ensure that just as much greenhouse gas gets absorbed as emitted.

Elton John may be the best-known advocate on the planet in the battle against HIV/AIDS. He started his nonprofit 25 years ago as the epidemic was bursting into the world’s consciousness. The deaths of Rock Hudson, Arthur Ashe, and Rudolf Nureyev, among many other celebrities, helped fuel concern about the rapid spread of the infection. John’s foundation has since raised more than $369 million and is getting an extra push because he is making fundraising a part of his farewell tour — and it probably won’t hurt that Rocketman, a biopic of the star, is coming out May 31.
