Producing energy is difficult, but saving is greater!

What has happened, and where has the issue of saving energy gone? Many want to make the production of hydroelectric power more difficult and expensive through unreasonable demands for rebuilding without regard to whether the facilities have existed for hundreds of years and that thereby local biotopes and cultural environments have been created which can be just as valuable as the possible fish they say they want to protect. 


Why do rich people not have to take their climate responsibility?

The very rich get a free ticket from climate responsibility. In the European Commission’s proposal for new legislation, they get several different exceptions and free access. The richest percent of the world emits twice as much as the poorest half of the world’s population.


Why our brain pushes us to destroy the planet

We know we’re heading for the climate change abyss – and yet we are not doing enough to stop it. Not even frequent reports of melting glaciers, ever-increasing fossil emissions and airlines flying tens of thousands of empty flights around the world to “keep their slots” make us as a society wake up and say stop.

Långsammare skidliftar och mindre konstgjord snö: Franska orter tacklar energikrisen

Skidortschefer i de franska Alperna rusar för att hitta sätt att spara energi som en del av en nationell ansträngning för att minska konsumtionen. I Chamonix, nära Schweiz, om det inte finns några skiåkare , kommer skidliften att gå 10% långsammare.

Absolut Vodka and Ardagh Group co-invest in hydrogen-fired glass furnace

Absolut Vodka is to become the first global spirits brand to switch to a partially hydrogen-energy-fired glass furnace for large-scale production in a significant step to reduce CO2 emissions from making its iconic bottles. The hydrogen initiative is an important milestone for Absolut Vodka to become completely CO2 neutral by 2030. A prerequisite for achieving this goal is to reduce the carbon footprint of its glass packaging.

Burning fossil fuel once caused a mass extinction – now we risk another

Budleigh Salterton, on the south coast of Devon, sits above the most terrifying cliffs on Earth. They are not very high. Even if you do not want to stand under them, they are not very prone to collapse. The horror takes a different form. It’s in the story they tell. Because they capture the moment when life on Earth almost ended.
