Denmark sells off its last oil company; China, Mexico and U.S. pledge to work together to save vaquita porpoise; and follow-up on organic weedkiller

In another sign that the petroleum era is drawing to a close, Denmark is selling off its last oil company. According to Peter Kurrild Klitgaard, a professor of political

science at the University of Copenhagen, the reason behind the muted political response to Maersk’s sale is due to the fact that "there’s no energy crisis. We have more sources of energy than ever before." In other news, China, Mexico and the U.S. have pledged to work together to target the illegal totoaba trade to save the nearly extinct vaquita porpoise; and follow-up information on the organic weedkiller being used by Christchurch City Council to reduce its dependence on glyphosate (Roundup).

FOLLOW UP: Information on the organic weedkiller being used by Christchurch City Council: "Christchurch City Council and their contractors have been using Organic Weedfree Rapid for weed control for many months. However, they are now changing over to a new formulation called Bio-Weed Blast which works in a similar way but has a lower odour. Bio-Weed Blast will, initially, only be available to commercial operators. For home gardeners we have just launched our Weed Weapon Natural Power which is organic and will replace Organic Weedfree Rapid in this home retail market. The ready to use Natural Power is launching today and the concentrate will be available soon.Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further information.

Kind Regards
