I posted here on Wednesday about how the Rio+20 Earth Summit in Brazil turned out to be – at least partially – a bit of a greenwash.

Last week I posted over on Asia Correspondent about how Australia’s new marine park nature reserve (the largest in the world) is sparking controversy in both fishing and environmentalist circles.

These stories, plus the development of a low-emissions diesel fuel in the Netherlands, are briefly covered on a France24 environment video report. Check it out below.

Now for another video report on the Rio+20 Earth Summit host country’s dubious environmental practices. Brazil’s hydroelectric power program is transforming energy production in the South American country, but at what costs? Is it another greenwash?

See the following Deutsche Welle report for details.
