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»

The unexpected barrier preventing American small towns from accessing federal climate funds

warns that local match requirements are putting rural communities in particular at a disadvantage. Many lack the resources to both apply for grant projects and also to sustain their portion of funding through the lifetime of a project

The rush towards sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels, including electric cars and renewable energy, was creating what Achiume described as “green sacrifice zones” where already marginalized groups were exposed to environmental harms from the extraction of the very minerals needed for green tech

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.

How Congress forces us to cause climate change

Congress routinely authorizes tax breaks of about $20.5 billion annually to encourage fossil energy production. However, the actual cost to society is about $662 billion when we count fossil fuel’s social, public health and environmental impacts

L'evidència de climes anteriors mostra que la Terra pot "inclinar-se" bruscament d'un clima a un altre en un temps comparativament curt, de vegades en tan sols una dècada.

El temor és que, d'aquí a unes dècades, la desforestació pugui desencadenar una transició abrupta de la selva tropical cap a la sabana, alliberant gasos d'efecte hivernacle addicionals per accelerar l'escalfament.

Una cascada de tipping-point podria portar el sistema Terra a temperatures encara més altes i a un nou estat climàtic, menys habitable, "calent". Això faria que grans parts de la Terra fossin inhabitables. #climatechange #climatecrisis #FossilFuels

I didn't fact-check this but it seems legit... #climatecrisis


this type of inner conflict creates dissonance and denialism — both of which are playing critical roles as defence mechanisms as we try to face our doomsday scenario. Deceiving ourselves that we have a back-pocket “nature solution” to the climate crisis feeds into that denialism
