Why newer cars aren’t always better for the climate

Is it better for the climate to go out and buy the latest, most fuel-efficient car, or keep driving the fairly decent car you already own for a little while longer? The answer is probably the latter, a new study suggests.The study is the latest ...

#Berlin’s car ban campaign: ‘It’s about how we want to live, breathe and play’ | #Germany | The Guardian


I wonder if this could be made to work and whether it could be translated to other major cities?

The US’s largest solar farm is canceled because Nevada locals don’t want to look at it


#Environment #SolarEnergy #Idiocracy ##Nevada #GlobalWarming #ClimateCatastrophe #ClimateChange #Dumbfuckistan

With the level of stupidity that high, we can never solve the life threatening challenges of global warming.

Maybe our human race needs to be gone for the earth to have a fresh start and the next dominant species may to better taking care of it.
The 850 megawatt, 9,200-acre solar farm, which would have been constructed in southern Nevada’s Moapa Valley, was to sit on 14 square miles on the Mormon Mesa, a flat-topped hill around 50 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

California-based Arevia Power and Solar Partners VII LLC withdrew their application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) last week in the face of opposition from a group called Save Our Mesa.

The group, which is made up of residents, environmentalists, and others, feels that the solar farm would hinder hiking, camping, driving off-highway vehicles, and horseback riding and deter tourists from visiting artist Michael Heizer’s environmental sculpture, “Double Negative” (1969).

Arevia told TV station KLAS that “the arrays would have been set back and not visible from the valley below. The company had estimated the project would create 2,600 jobs and provide daytime energy needs to 500,000 homes.”

Why Bill Gates and others pushing for nuclear solution and fighting solar, wind and other alternative energy sources.


The world needs a global push for clean, renewable and safe energy alternative to slow down and limit the climate catastrophe we are facing in the next decade or 2.

This is from 1970s, but still sadly accurate (should add hydrogen to the list of todays fake clean energy).

Low initial investment, and these simple steps can get you a CO~2~ and temperature monitor, among other things that contribute to stale air. Well done video and blog entry by Jeff Geerling, just when I needed it. Anyone here built something similar?

Louisiana Shell refinery left spewing chemicals after Hurricane Ida


Black smoke rises from Shell’s petrochemical plant in Norco, Louisana, after Hurricane Ida knocked out the facility’s power.

Power outages from the storm have left air quality tracking systems out of commission, making public health concern hard to gauge

You can get #cotton #bags pretty much everywhere. How did an environmental #solution become part of the #problem?


source: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/24/style/cotton-totes-climate-crisis.html
An organic cotton tote needs to be used 20,000 times to offset its overall impact of production, according to a 2018 study by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark. That equates to daily use for 54 years — for just one bag.
...
It’s also associated with forced labor, thanks to revelations about the treatment of Uyghurs in #Xinjiang, #China, which produces 20 percent of the world’s cotton and supplies most Western fashion brands.
...
You can’t, for example, just put a #tote in a #compost bin: Maxine Bédat, a director at the New Standard Institute, a nonprofit focused on fashion and sustainability, said she has “yet to find a municipal compost that will accept textiles.”
...
Some brands are turning to other #textile solutions. The British designer Ally Capellino recently swapped cotton for #hemp, while Ms. Hindmarch introduced a new version of her original tote, this time made from recycled water bottles; Nordstrom also uses similar bags in its stores.
