Carbon emissions from Australia’s ‘Dirty Dozen’ more than half Pacific Islands’ emissions

A new Climate Council report has found that between 2016 and 2021, a group of just 12 Australian fossil fuel companies emitted more carbon pollution than 50% of the Pacific Islands’ total emissions over the same period

No more LNG — B.C.’s big climate problem

Even as the climate crisis intensifies, big oil and gas companies, like Shell, are pushing the B.C. government to expand the liquefied natural gas industry. Doing so would mean thousands of kilometres of new pipelines, thousands of new fracking wells and megatonnes of new greenhouse gas emissions. It would also mean B.C. could not meet its climate targets

Des d'Irlanda fins a Croàcia, i des de l'Àrtic fins al mar Mediterrani, Europa va veure exemples de temperatures i temps extrem el 2022. Experts adverteixen que aquesta podria ser la nova normalitat.

S'ha calculat que hi va haver més de 20.000 morts en excés a l'estiu passat a Europa com a conseqüència de les temperatures inusualment altes.

Desembre de 2022 Europa va ser 0,9 graus centígrads per sobre de la mitjana de 1991-2020.

How US Policy Devastated Small Dairy Farms and Boosted Corporate Monopolies

Food & Water Watch on Tuesday released an analysis of the U.S. dairy farming industry—the climate and food justice group's third in-depth report on the economic costs of food monopolies—revealing how corporate consolidation has helped push small family farms out of business over the past two decades, while worsening the climate emergency

Emissions divide now greater within countries than between them – study

This has profound consequences for climate action, as it shows that people on low incomes within developed countries are contributing less to the climate crisis, while rich people in developing countries have much bigger carbon footprints than was previously acknowledged

House sparrows are in trouble – the UK population has halved for reasons that we don't fully understand. But there are things you can do to help, and a good start is to put up a nest box or two on your house walls.


Descobrir la sopa d'all :bl48:

Un estudi explica ara que les persones amb ingressos baixos dels països desenvolupats contribueixen menys a la crisi climàtica que les persones riques dels països en desenvolupament.

L'informe també diu que la diferència entre les emissions de carboni dels rics i dels pobres dintre d'un mateix país és més gran que les diferències d'emissions entre països rics i pobres.

En resum "un grup relativament petit" de persones riques de tota mena de països contribueix de manera desproporcionada a les emissions globals.

Catastrophic (and to be frank - hugely depressing)

This new research in @PNASNews suggests earth will cross the 1.5 degrees C temperature increase threshold in the next decade (within just 10 to 15 years) and is likely to exceed 2 degrees C by around 2060.

This should be THE lead story on the news today (and onwards) and the lead action point for our governments. It should trigger a massive call for real global action to combat the #climateemergency - sadly though I fear this news will barely register.

We have to stop believing the siren calls of future technology solutions and #carbonoffsets - the immediate need is a rapid end to the use of #fossilfuels and a massive rollout of #renewableenergy

Coches eléctricos, cuando el peso importa 😂

Por qué debes pensarlo dos veces antes de comprar un coche eléctrico si tu garaje tiene más de 20 años

Un estudio de la Asociación Británica de Aparcamientos (BPA por sus siglas en inglés) revela que el mayor peso de los coches eléctricos en híbridos enchufables puede afectar a las estructuras de los aparcamientos, especialmente los construidos hace décadas.

El consumo d'energia renovables se estanca en Europa

La UE está lejos de cumplir los objetivos de consumo de energía renovable
El porcentaje medio es del 21,8% y en España un 20,7%, tres veces menos que Suecia, 62,6%

El consumo en renovables en la UE, apenas alcanzó el 21,8% en 2021. En comparación con 2020, esta fue una disminución de 0,3 puntos porcentuales, el primer descenso desde que comenzó a valorarse este indicador.

Que nadie olvide que biomassa, es decir quemar bosques cuenta como renovables.

Cap els 3,4°C

En l'actualitat, la humanitat es troba en un camí d'entre 2,2 °C i 3,4 °C d'escalfament, amb 2,4 °C el valor més probable si els països compleixen les reduccions d'emissions que es van comprometre a fer el 2030

Però és probable que els augments de temperatura estiguin a l'extrem superior de la gamma si no es mantenen les promeses i continua el business as usual.

El hidrógeno verde pierde por el camino hasta el 80% de la energía invertida en su producción

Segun Hydrogen Science Coalition, en el proceso de producción de hidrógeno por electrólisis a partir, por ejemplo, de fuentes renovables y durante su transporte por gasoducto, se puede llegar a perder hasta un 80% de la energía invertida.

El gasoductos que transportará en principio hidrógeno será adjudicado a Enagás y costará entre 2.500 y 3.000 millones de euros procedentes de las arcas públicas»

L'espinós tema de la població

La disminució de la fertilitat als països en desenvolupament no depèn del creixement econòmic, sinó que segueix l'ús anticonceptiu

En un estudi a llarg termini publicat recentment no vam trobar relacions entre fertilitat i creixement econòmic, sinó una forta associació amb l'anticoncepció moderna: les taxes de natalitat als països en desenvolupament van disminuir linealment amb l'augment de l'ús d'anticonceptius.

Això suggereix que un finançament adequat per a la planificació familiar és important per reduir les taxes de natalitat als països amb una fecunditat insosteniblement alta.

Pot la civilització sobreviure?

L'allunyament del món de la seva dependència actual dels combustibles fòssils serà el projecte tècnic més gran, car i complex mai intentat pels humans. Si falla, podria significar la fi de la civilització industrial.

Una transició lluny dels combustibles fòssils no és opcional; d'alguna forma o altra, és inevitable.
