1. With just 34 days left in 2021, our countdown by week in the last 52 days of the year brings us to week 18, the first week of May.

I just searched for the environmental news of that week, which was all profoundly disturbing.

2. To give you an impression of the news in such an average week that makes me worried about our future, let's make a quick tour around the planet.

3. China now accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than all of the world's developed nations combined.

China accounted for 27% of global emissions. The U.S., the second-biggest emitter, contributed 11%, and India 6.6%.

As part of the #GreenDeal, EU aims at a reduction in greenhouse gases of 55% by 2030 & full climate neutrality by 2050 🍃Will we have enough renewable electricity to meet the decarbonisation objectives? @RonnieBelmans @ReisPiero & @PieterVingerhoe answer📌bit.ly/3n1bDsl
📑Studies show there is little room for supplying the additional #RenewableElectricity by 2030.
➡️This policy brief, part of the #EUI4CoFoE campaign, addresses potential priorities to cope with the remaining needs for energy towards carbon neutrality.
The authors suggest 5 policy actions by 2030 and 2050, addressing #cooperation with neighbouring countries, prioritising applications where electrification brings an enormous gain in efficiency such as passenger transport🚄🚃and hydrogen production and more.

#GlobalWarming #pollution #environment

businessinsider.in/science/enviro…
The #COVID19 pandemic has generated more than eight million tonnes of #plasticwaste globally, with over 25,000 tonnes of it entering the oceans, according to a study.

#GlobalWarming #pollution #environment
The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that a significant portion of this ocean plastic debris is expected to make its way onto either beaches or the seabed within three to four years.

3/12. This graph from Our World in Data shows the global average temperature relative to the average of the period between 1961 and 1990.

These changes are almost all caused by human behavior, especially the burning of fossil fuels and land (ab)use.

2. That’s right, it’s our only home. That means we have to be extra careful, we don’t have a spare.

When it heats up, or loses it’s complex ecosystems, we will all be in trouble.

2. The leaked documents also reveal how Australia pushed back against the need to phase out coal power plants to tackle climate change.

That is like removing references to quit smoking in a scientific report on preventing lung cancer.

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.

In July of 2021, the @CDCgov announced a decrease in US life expectancy of 1.5 years, the biggest one-year decline since #WWII. Even before COVID-19, however, the US has seen several years of declining life expectancy in the past decade. #ph260720 #COVID

Meanwhile, we see a widening gap in medical care between those with high and low status, leading to much larger declines in life expectancy for black and brown populations during #COVID19. How do you think these gaps came to be? #ph260720 #Healthcare
#hospitals continue to #Innovate and improve their medical care, following charters to improve health and care for the needy. However, they often fail to address the non-medical needs of their community, the “social determinants of health” #ph260720 #CommunityHealth

1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.

1. A recap on #China electricity shortage, National Development and Reform Commission (#NDRC) that’s at the center of news, and what’s next.
2. Like any sudden shortage, it’s demand, supply, low slack and sudden shock. Due to low price of Coal in 2020 right after Covid, and government's push to reduce overcapacity and carbon emissions, coal inventory was low. China electricity is 70%+ coal power.
3. This September 3rd Moody’s report on coal sector was a 2 weeks early to be noticed. They mention 10 largest producers – all SOEs – accounted for nearly 53% of China's coal production in 2020, while three regions represented 70% of total production
