Vienna wants to reward CO2 reduction with a cultural experience and as a reward, #culture tokens will be distributed whenever the app users commute without cars.
Users get one token as soon as they have saved 20 kilogrammes of #CO2 , which would be reached if an average resident (within the city limits) commuted without a car for two weeks. #Austria aims to be #climate neutral by 2040, a decade ahead of the #EU target.
It would be unsurprising if diesel drivers feel that they are already at the centre of a relentless war: higher tax bands, expensive maintenance bills and compulsory charges for entering low emission or clean air zones in some cities have driven up the cost of motoring in recent years.
As a result, some motorists have already made the conscious decision not to purchase diesel cars, with sales of new vehicles 25% lower last year and surveys revealing that a high proportion of diesel drivers are considering switching to petrol or electric models in future

A climate infographic which got completely out of hand. - Each Branch shows a city.
- Each Subbranch shows a location within the city
- Each color attached to the branch shows different temperatures within different climate models.
Example: Prague, Airport will have a median max. temp. of 39.8° under the RCP8.5 climate model (No measures against climate change). It was fun to make but waaaay too complicated it's not really user-friendly.
Le barriere coralline sono tra gli organismi messi più a rischio dal Climate Change, infatti l’aumento di temperatura oceanica ha portato allo sbancamento di una percentuale rilevante dei coralli, specifichiamo che lo sbiancamento dei coralli avviene a causa dell’espulsione delle alghe colorate simbiotiche da parte del corallo stesso a causa dello stress termico.
Le barriere non sono solo minacciate dall’aumento di temperatura ma anche dall’acidificazione degli oceani, dalla pesca eccessiva e da pratiche distruttive.
La diffusa perdita delle barriere coralline avrebbe un impatto devastante in quanto ospitano 1/4 di tutti i pesci marini e forniscono sussistenza quotidiana a 500 milioni persone in particolare dei paese più poveri.
La limitazione della temperatura entro i 2°C e necessaria per non avere una perdita su larga scala di questo ecosistema. ——————————————————————————— Fonti e approfondimenti su:

Sweden is far behind many other countries when it comes to bringing bikes on trains. The Stockholm region has been totally closed for bikes on trains until now. Mälartåg accepts at least 6 bikes onboard. So its possible to bring the bike to visit Eskilstuna/Örebro now. Hurra!
🍆🌶️👍 Motivation 💪🥬🥒 We went to the @rgs_ibg 'future of food' event last night, and it really struck a chord.
The amazing work by the University of sheffield institute for sustainable food, Carolyn steel (who is a HOOT), tristram Stuart @feedbackorg@toastale and Chad Staddon from @uwebristol.
So many good chats, but the quote that stood out was: 'If an old lady was crossing the road, you wouldn't go and bop her on the head, you would probably go and help her. But you know that this probably won't stop world suffering.
That's how we should feel about food.
You know that going to the market and choosing seasonally grown, no chemical food is not going to solve the climate crisis on its own, we need political intervention. But you know its good and feels right, and don't feel to despondent'
We are proud to have curated the second Creatives for Climate Summit held at Patagonia next week. Expect to be surprised, challenged, inspired, and to get your creative juices flowing to put your talent to the ultimate test - saving planet earth!⠀
Why do we invest SO MUCH TIME into communities and initiatives to drive change? Jess sums it up well:⠀
"Lucy and I have the same vision which is to deploy business as a force for good. This is why The Humblebrag is much more than a commercial communications agency. We are investing time, resources and capital into social, environmental and cultural projects that align with our mission. The most urgent topic being the climate crisis.”⠀
Impact is our KPI. Our reason for being. Our main driver.⠀
There is no planet B, and there's no greater mission than that!
Oil AND GAS COMPANIES IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENT FAR WORSE THAN THOUGHT
The oil and gas industry has had a far worse impact on the #climate than previously believed, according to a #study indicating that human emissions of fossil methane have been underestimated by up to 40%.
Although the research will add to pressure on #fossilfuel#companies , #scientists said there was cause for hope because it showed a big extra benefit could come from tighter #regulation of the industry and a faster shift towards #renewableenergy .
Methane has a #greenhouse effect that is about 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide over a 20-year period and is responsible for at least 25% of global heating, according to the UN Environment Programme. ￼ #Theworld is failing to ensure #children have a ' #liveableplanet ', report finds . .Read More #Trump Selling Out Your #MAGA Future

. #DEMOCRACY "In many countries the end of democracy often begins with someone who mocks it, who makes fun of the #institutions , who doesn't treat his opposition as a legitimate opposition but rather as traitors," Anne Applebaum says. What should the press do in response? Joan Walsh says the answer is "telling the #truth , telling it often and telling it loud
In the past two centuries, the amount of methane in the atmosphere has more than doubled, though there has long been uncertainty about whether the source was #biological – from #agriculture , livestock or landfills – or from fossil fuels. There were also doubts about what share of fossil methane was naturally released and what share was from industry. 😳 Now...no doubts.
Данія—дощова і вітряна країна. Тут майже завжди похмуро, сильні вітри, які ламають і гнуть дерева. Дощі майже щодня, а сама погода, як настрій жінки: 5 хвилин світить сонце, потім різко небо стає чорним і падає сильний дощ, потім вітер, знову сонце і так по колу.
Як тут виявилося, я дуже сприймаю такі перепади погоди. Вже який день поспіль відчуваю себе, як ганчірка: болить голова, слабкість, сонливість. Хочеться просто замотатися в ковдру і цілими днями лежати. Проте, думка "ти сюди не валятися приїхала" змушує прокидатися і приводити себе в порядок.

The wildlife of Svalbard needs your help! This incredible part of Arctic Norway and its unique wildlife are under threat: oil companies want to drill right next to its fragile sea ice, where polar bears, puffins, narwhals, and beluga whales call home. The sea ice is an essential part of the ecosystem, providing critical nourishment to survive the harsh Arctic winter. Without it, some species simply cannot survive.
Please help us protect this whole area by tagging politicians @erna_solberg and @jonasgahrs below, politely asking them to PLEASE KEEP THE SEA ICE OIL FREE!

The wildlife of Svalbard needs your help! This incredible part of Arctic Norway and its unique wildlife are under threat: oil companies want to drill right next to its fragile sea ice, where polar bears, walruses, orcas, beluga whales and puffins call home. The sea ice is an essential part of the ecosystem, providing critical nourishment to survive the harsh Arctic winter, where temperatures can plummet to -40C.
Without the sea ice, staying alive in these brutal conditions becomes even harder, and some species such as polar bears simply cannot survive. Please help us protect this whole area by tagging politicians @erna_solberg and @jonasgahrs below, politely asking them to please KEEP THE SEA ICE OIL FREE!
