Newly established High Council for the Climate warns government that emissions cuts do not reach the goal of being carbon neutral by 2050.
Over the past ten years we’ve been observing the large-scale overflows of global investment in the development of clean energy. China, which among others have joined the train of non-carbon energy sources development later, now accounts for 40% of the total global investment flow. What have made China a leader in green solutions and is it one in a boat in tackling climate change?
Atlanta is the latest US city planning to totally switch to green energy by 2035.
Spaniards supported a Green New Deal programme on Sunday, reelecting the pro-climate Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE).
Governments of Washington and New York city announced on Monday they will run completely on carbon neutral power by 2030.
From the time Donald Trump became a president of the USA, he abolished all Obamas environmental projects and declared open support for fossil fuel economy. In two years the ecological situation has gone so devastating that it requires a resolute plan like a New Deal, presented and imposed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to combat the Great Depression. As a reflection, a Great New Deal brings strict solutions how to help the USA to tackle climate change.
Scientists state on the fact that if we want to keep global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees Celsius, we’ll need to rely on renewable energy, electric vehicles (EV) and battery storage. But creating that infrastructure will dramatically increase our need for metals like cobalt and lithium. A recent report, released this week by the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology, Sydney, cautions that a spike in demand for those and other metals could drain the planet’s reserves and lead to dire social and environmental consequences.
A complete shift to the only use of renewable energy sources is not only possible but also cheaper and safer than reliance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy, according to a new study from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and the Energy Watch Group (EWG) from Germany.
The European countries have realized long ago that climate change is not just a form of a words, but a great challenge to our generation. Much more faster than other world Europe provides green policy to tackle global warming. An essential and effective part in green solutions play the decision to limit emissions of pollutants from cars, vans and trucks, imposing different types of emissions zones in big cities.
