Community Choice Energy (CCE) is a promising Californian initiative to facilitate access to renewable energy. On Saturday, 5 December 2015, during the Paris Climate Change Conference 2015, CCE held an event to highlight the progress made so far, the role that governments can play, and the benefits that can be achieved.

An all-Indigenous flotilla of kayaks took to the waters of Paris today, followed by a press conference featuring Indigenous leaders from the Americas delivering strong messages: warnings of the worst consequences of climate change, and holistic solutions to protect Mother Earth. This event, proposed by the Kichwa community of the Sarayaku, served as a platform to reject false climate solutions, and to deliver three key documents designed as a means to address climate change.

In the project ‘Ink and Pencils from Pollution’ our aim is to mine the black carbon found in the polluted air we breathe and transform it into useful products or substances, such as pencils or ink. This would not only remove the harmful particles, but would also provide a potentially useful material from the pollution. This process is known as up-cycling: producing a recycled material has more value than the original resource.
The project is in its research and development phase. Our aim is to use an electrostatic collection process particularly aimed at ultra-fine particles (UFP) and black carbon, which are the worst of the pollutants because they are small enough to enter our bloodstream and transport other toxins. We explore different ways to visualise what could be imprinted in our lungs.
