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

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.

Latest comic on the ridiculous backlash to the news that gas stoves are giving kids asthma.

#gasstoves #environment #health #indoorairquality #pollution #cartoon
1. Every time scientists find a product to be unsafe...

Gas stoves release lots of pollution that causes asthma in kids. We should update building codes.

2. ...we get a familiar reaction.

THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY YOUR GAS STOVE! STOCKPILE RANGES WHILE YOU CAN!

3. Once something becomes normalized, any discovery that it might be doing massive harm causes outrage.

These toy saws are mutilating children.

Back in my day, we lost our arms and fed them to the dogs and we loved it!

4. Obviously the trick is to say the opposite.

Electric stoves are bad for the environment and everyone should switch to gas, or even better, dung pellets.

I'm no gas-sucking lib! I'm switching to electric!


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

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.

Abigail Disney says private jets are a climate ‘cancer,’ calls out Elon Musk and other rich ‘babies’

A Disney heiress — one who always flies commercial, she says — has added her voice to those criticizing the Kardashians, Taylor Swift, Elon Musk and other celebrities who travel by private jet. With their inefficient fuel use, those luxury flights are heating up the planet and speeding the arrival of cataclysmic outcomes, detractors say

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
