A humane prison

New Zealand has moved to tackle high rates of mental illness amongst its prison population with a brand new facility outside Auckland. The detention centre for high- and maximum-security males is swinging the pendulum back from punishment towards rehabilitation. It places emphasis on time spent outdoors in meditation, yoga, and gardens that the inmates will tend. It’s modelled on prisons in Scandinavia, Belgium and Germany. http://www.inkl.com/glance/news/yoga-herbs-and-sunshine-new-zealand-opens-humane-jail-for-most-violent-inmates?

Free public transport to reduce road traffic

Germany has surprised neighbours with a radical proposal to reduce road traffic by making public transport free. The proposal will be tested by the end of this year in five cities across western Germany, including former capital Bonn and industrial cities Essen and Mannheim. Countries that fail to keep to EU limits could face legal action at the European Court of Justice, the EU’s highest tribunal, which can levy fines on member states. www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/germany-eyes-free-public-transport-to-banish-air-pollution?

International collaboration in measuring climate change

image

Atmospheric readings from Cape Grim, Tasmania along with two stations in Hawaii and Alaska, are closely watched as they date back decades and closely track a range of pollutants from ozone-depleting chemicals to the various greenhouse gases resulting from burning fossil fuels and clearing forests. Sites in the northern hemisphere exceeded CO2 400 ppm from 2012 onwards. But as the region has greater seasonal variation – mostly because there is more terrestrial vegetation – CO2 concentrations dropped back below that mark each spring. Now Cape Grim, which offers some of the purest air in the world for measuring climate change, has passed CO2 400 ppm, and it will need a huge global effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions to push the level back down.

Gender stereotypes banned in UK advertising

A ban on adverts featuring “harmful gender stereotypes” or those which are likely to cause “serious or widespread offence” has come into force in the UK. The ban covers scenarios such as a man with his feet up while a woman cleans, or a woman failing to park a car. The UK’s advertising watchdog introduced the ban because it found some portrayals could play a part in “limiting people’s potential”. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-48628678
