hello there. I'd like to keep in touch with people directly in different parts of the world about environmental and innovation issues. The UK press here is simply not enough.

After several years reporting on commodities on behalf of business and science publisher Reed Elsevier, I crafted a path as an independent writer on environmental, science and innovation issues. The huge social and technological innovation in this area means it’s a very interesting and satisfying job. About two-thirds of my work is focused on clean energy and low carbon issues. I’ve been commissioned by the Times, The Spectator, The Guardian, Economist Group, Worldwatch Institute, Farmers Weekly, The Grocer, European Commission and many science, business and consumer publishers.

Dear Elisabeth,

In your capacity as an editor (and writer also perhaps), please consider joining the Research Cooperative (http://cooperative.ning,com) - a meeting place for researchers, science writers, translators, publishers and others....

Best regards, Peter (ethnobotanist, National Museum of Ethnology, Japan)

Hi Elisabeth,

Thanks for your message.

In the French news, in the past year, the hot topic like in many other countries I suppose was about climate change. They talked a lot about the "Grenelle de l'Environnement" and whether or not the recommendations of the plan will actually be put into practice in the future legislations (tax incentives on cars, etc..).
They talked also a lot about the problems occurred at one nuclear power station. Then, some recurring themes are the danger of power lines on human health (risk of leukamia if you live less than 200 metres from a power line), the pesticides in the food (an expert revealed that the Spanish government in the 80s lied on the death of several people who had eaten tomatoes contaminated by pesticides; they said at that time that they had died due to frelated oil; the truth is that they died just because a farmer used too much pesticide on his tomatoes! and I think that this pesticide is still in use...).

Hope it helps. I am now based in the UK so will be less aware of French news.

Kind Regards,

Cedric

It's good to keep in touch with editors, project developers, campaigners, business executives and researchers in other countries on environmental and related problems. eg: international waste problems, renewable energy development, energy access, business competition, marine pollution and lots of other issues
I want to understand and discuss how those in other countries (especially developing nations) feel and report back on that, here in Europe.
best regards,
ElisabethJeffries
