Legal precedent for endangered species protection, a hemp house in Canberra, and district heating networks in the U.K.

A strong precedent for the protection of endangered animal populations has been set by a Federal judge in Montana, who ruled that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service broke the law in 2014

when it tried to remove a threatened grizzly bear population from the endangered species list. In other news, a carbon-neutral, termite-proof and fire-resistant house is under construction in Canberra, and it's built with hemp; and a planned district heating network in North London is expected to reduce the carbon footprint of local homes by 80%.
