I have created a Dipity timeline of environmental disasters and law. It starts at the Industrial Revolution, and I would ask you to have a play with the zoom, especially to look at 2010 and 2011. The timeline was inspired by the idea of creating a new law to help turn the tide on climate change and other environmental ills. The law would be called Ecocide.
Tomorrow I am liveblogging on Storify (and will also publish here) from the mock Ecocide trial, being held at the Supreme Court in London. The idea is to test whether corporations can be held to account under a new International Crime Against Peace.
Please let me know what you think of the timeline, whether it works to express some meaningful information, and whether you can think of more significant events to add in the comments below - it's a work in progress! Thanks.
