If there's ever a time for bad puns, it's when the world's largest palm oil trader promises to protect forests. Wilmar International, responsible for almost half of the world's palm oil, will no longer sell oil from companies that are destroying the rainforest.

We've received a reply from the Russian embassy in London in response to the thousands of emails sent in support of the Arctic 30. It's a shame they didn't respond to everyone personally, but any response is always welcome. It's a short letter from press secretary Artem Kozhin and a much longer Q&A-style document which sets out the Russian government's position, but naturally it's not one that I, or anyone else here, agrees with. Here are the main claims and allegations, and details on why they're unfounded.

What a month for the Big 6! Whether cuts to energy efficiency measures, a green light for unabated coal burning, fracking tax breaks that lock in the UK’s reliance on gas, or the multi-billion pound windfall due to companies like EDF and Centrica from an unchanged carbon floor price, the energy giants have won another round at the expense of ordinary people.

In my family I am known as the one who always sends emails about campaigns and petitions. I suppose I am a campaigner so that is not a newsflash! Luckily my loved ones are very obliging and lovely and do sign up to almost everything I send them. However I know in my heart of hearts that really my aunts and uncles would love a little more often to receive a personal message from me, with an update on how I am and what I am up to, rather than a petition to sign.
