Why planting more trees is one of the smartest things a city can do
Vox - 11/26/2016.
By Brad Plumer - Trees can make a city sidewalk prettier, sure. But that’s not even their best trick. A growing pile of research suggests that planting more urban trees, if done right, could save tens of thousands of lives around the world each year – by soaking up pollution and cooling down deadly heat waves.
Danish supermarket selling expired food opens second branch
The Guardian [UK] - 11/26/2016.
Agence France-Presse - It may be past its sell-by date, but for many Danes it’s a tasty proposition: surplus food being sold in a Copenhagen supermarket has proved so popular that a second store has been opened.
Health Canada proposes ban of bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticide
CBC News - 11/23/2016.
By Lisa Johnson - Health Canada is proposing a ban on almost all uses of a controversial neonicotinoid pesticide called imidacloprid, saying it is seeping into Canadian waterways at levels that can harm insects and the ecosystem.

Bloomberg - 11/23/2016.
By Pat Rizzuto - Farmers can continue to use of seeds coated with neonicotinoid insecticides following a federal district court’s ruling that guidance the Environmental Protection Agency issued is not subject to legal review (Anderson v. McCarthy, 2016 BL 389255, N.D. Cal., No. 16-00068 WHA, 11/21/16).
