This is Elisabetta Zavoli @elizavola taking over the @everydayclimatechange Instagram account this week and sharing my documentary work of the &amplsquoLandfill midwife&amprsquo project. . 
Some men from Cikiwul village catch up fishes in the highly polluted muddy waters that percolate from Bantar Gebang biggest dump zone. Banter Gebang landfill receives the waste of about 15 millions people living in Jakarta. Trash pickers need the litter to make a living and the Indonesian society needs trash pickers to recycle all possible materials that otherwise would be just discarded. . 
Indonesia is ranked the second largest plastic polluter in the world behind only China with reports showing that the country produces 187.2 million tonnes of plastic waste each year of which more than 1 million tons leaks into the ocean. 
Recent studies discovered that as plastics decay they emit traces of methane and ethylene two powerful greenhouse gases and the rate of emission increases with time. The emissions occur when plastic materials are exposed to ambient solar radiation whether in water or in the air but in air emission rates are much higher. Results show that plastics represent a heretofore unrecognized source of climate-relevant trace gases that are expected to increase as more plastic is produced and accumulated in the environment. Polyethylene used in shopping bags is the most produced and discarded synthetic polymer globally and was found to be the most prolific emitter of methane and ethylene. 
It&amprsquos estimated that over 8 billion tons of virgin plastic have been produced since 1950 making plastic one of the largest man-made materials on the planet behind steel and cement. Of that volume more than half was produced in the last 16 years amid a global boom in single-use disposable plastic. Current annual production levels are expected to double in the next 20 years.

The #Atlanta City Council just approved a roadmap for reaching the city&amprsquos goal to be powered entirely by renewables by 2035! One of the best parts? The plan&amprsquos deep commitment to equity. The transition to 100% #cleanenergy will create new jobs reduce electricity costs and benefit all residents -- especially the vulnerable communities historically impacted the most by burning #fossilfuels. #ReadyFor100 #100ATL #ATL.

China&amprsquos decision to no longer import the world&amprsquos recycled waste has left municipalities and waste companies from Australia to the U.S. scrambling for alternatives. In the year since the Chinese ban was implemented millions of tons of plastics and other recyclables have piled at export facilities been sent to incinerators or ended up in landfills. In England more than half-a-million more tons of plastics and other household trash were burned last year while communities across the U.S. curtailed collections or halted their recycling programs entirely. But experts say the crisis triggered by China&amprsquos ban could have an upside if it leads to better solutions for managing the world&amprsquos waste.

Reducing plastic pollution in the oceans is a priority issue for us. .
Last year .
. 🐬127 countries had adopted legislation to regulate plastic bags
. 🐟30 countries charged consumers fees for plastic bags
. 🐠63 countries had mandates for producer responsibility on single-use plastics
The push to #BeatPlasticPollution for #CleanSeas continues to gain momentum.

&ampldquoOur territory is our life. Without our territory without our forest we cannot exist. We hope that our rights and lives will be respected. Our forest is not for sale!&amprdquo A powerful and historic moment for indigenous rights and the rights of nature has just happened in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Chanting songs about defending the forest and carrying their spears on Wednesday the Waorani people marched towards the Provincial Court of Pastaza where they filed a lawsuit to demand the respect of their collective rights and to protect their lands from oil extraction.
The Waorani were joined by other indigenous nations from the north and south including Siona Kofan Secoya Kichwa Achuar Sapara and others who expressed their solidarity and affirmed their alliance to protect their rainforest homes.

Show your support for #WaoraniResistance by helping them reach 100000 signatures on their petition. Please share to your network!

Of climate change&amprsquos many plagues &ampmdash drought insects fires floods &ampmdash saltwater intrusion in particular sounds almost like a biblical curse. Rising seas sinking earth and extreme weather are conspiring to cause salt from the ocean to contaminate aquifers and turn formerly fertile fields barren. A 2016 study in the journal Science predicted that 9 percent of the U.S. coastline is vulnerable to saltwater intrusion &ampmdash a percentage likely to grow as the world continues to warm. Scientists are just beginning to assess the potential effect on agriculture East Carolina University hydrologist Alex Manda said and it&amprsquos not yet clear how much can be mitigated. If farmers in coastal areas have any hope of protecting their land &ampmdash and their livelihoods &ampmdash the first step is to disentangle the complex web of causes that can send ocean water seeping into the ground beneath their feet. &ampldquoWe spend a lot of time and money to try to prevent salt&amprdquo farmer Dawson Pugh says. &ampldquoI worry what the future is. If it keeps getting worse will it be worth farming?&amprdquo Read more at washingtonpost.com. Photos by Eamon Queeney/for The Washington Post.

Young people striking from school over climate change have issued an open letter ahead of a global day of action on 15 March. Students across 50 countries are expected to participate and nearly 500 events are listed to take place on the day. Janine O&amprsquoKeefe from FridaysForFuture.org hopes to see &ampquotover 100000&ampquot participating in the day of action. The letter was written by a global coordination group of 150 students including the first youth climate striker Greta Thunberg..
