The Weekly Round Up: June 11-17

Welcome back to the Weekly Round Up!  I hope you had a good week.  Things are finally starting to get back to normal here at Earth|Unfiltered, after my shitty month of no internet, but unfortunately it’s anything but business as usual in the rest of the world- or at least anytime Trump and his government comes near any environmental issues.  This week we had lots of talk about the Paris Agreement, turkey vomit, and giant Australian turekys.  So without further ado, let’s dive in!

The Weekly Round Up: April 9-15

Welcome back to the Weekly Round Up!  I don’t really have much to say this week as an introduction.  I wish the worst thing happening right now would be the fact that the Blue Jays have gone 1 and 9 to start the season.  Unfortunately, it seems like the whole world has gone insane.  I’m going to try and keep doing my thing though, so here’s you’re weekly dose of environmental news.  This week we had spiders, the beginning of life on earth, and spiders.  Seriously, there was more spider news than usual this week.  So let’s dive in.

The Weekly Round Up: January 15-21

We’re back with another weekly roundup and holy chipotle has it been a crazy week! A lot has changed in our world and we want to make sure you guys are kept up to date with what’s going on with our environment.

However there are still so many issues out there that demand our attention! So here’s our bag of news trail-mix!  Continue reading

Brexit Could Seriously Harm UK’s Environment

Well guys, Britain did it: They are leaving the European Union (surpise! for those of you who don’t know yet).  Unfortunately for their environment (among other things, but really I’m just going to focus on the environment), this is a terrible, terrible turn of events.  There are a lot of moving pieces here that could negatively affect the environment, so I’m going to try and break them down, one by one, but essentially it all comes down to this- the EU is a huge defender of the environment, and the reason behind most of the policies protecting the environment in the UK.

Do you live in the GTA?  Are you on your computer right now?  Well then get off, because there’s a huge BioBlitz going on in the Credit River Watershed that you should probably go to (like right now!).  For everyone else, welcome, it’s good to have you.  We’ve got tons of news for you, all the news you could want!  We’ve got pollution, and some new research, and some even more pollution! Hurray!  Too much pollution if you ask me.  That being said, let’s dive in! Continue reading

Am I late today with the Weekly Round Up?  Yes.  Am I sorry about this?  Yes.  Should we just get to it then?  Yes.  It’s been a week of animal selfies, nature based playgrounds, and wildlife highways.  So while it hasn’t been the craziest week, I think it’s safe to say that the animals might be rising up to overthrow us- and The Simpsons thought dolphins would be the end of us.  So let’s get to it.
