The fuel consumption of a B-2 Bomber is 4.28 gallons to the mile. Read that carefully– gallons to the mile, not the more common miles to the gallon.

Please don’t try to blame me for #climatechange
Daily Mail 5 Aug 2019
AS A dairy #cow, I feel much maligned by misconceptions concerning my contribution to climate change. Plants and trees are nature’s way of dealing with carbon emissions, but this process produces #cellulose, a #carbohydrate you humans are unable to digest. However, I love to eat it and I convert it into #milk and beef, which you enjoy as part of your balanced diet. I do apologise for the methane I produce, but have your scientists told you that this breaks down naturally and is reabsorbed by plants, thus completing a natural cycle? Because of better breeding, I produce more milk and meat than my grandparents did, so fewer cows are needed, hence our #carbonfootprint has actually decreased. I do wish you humans would acknowledge that 80 per cent of greenhouse gasses come from the fossil fuel-consuming industries, which include factories producing processed #soya, almond and other somewhat artificial drinks masquerading as milk!

💧 The theme of this week is water! Approximately 70% of the water withdrawn worldwide is consumed and nonrecoverable. Therefore #theconsciouschallenge of this week is about using less water! What do you do to use less water? Like our account and share your tips with pictures in the comments below! ⠀

🚰 This week you can win the glass water filter Aqualine 5 from our friends of @tradeline.nl!⠀

Per ogni maglietta che produciamo piantiamo un albero. ⠀
In questo modo compensiamo il ciclo di vita della T-shirt, dalla sua produzione all'ultimo giorno di utilizzo. ⠀
Indossare eco-compensato è possibile con zeroCO2!⠀

For every shirt we produce, we plant a tree. ⠀
In this way we compensate the life cycle of the T-shirt, from its production to the last day of use. ⠀
Wearing eco-compensated shirts is possible with zeroCO2!⠀

.
Plastic can take up to 600 years to degrade. They break apart into smaller fragments called "microplastics" which can be ingested by marine animals 🐳🐠🐬🐢
.
It's estimated that 100,000 marine animals die from plastics (the ones found and documented). Approximately 1 million sea birds have also died due to plastics.
.
Reusable items and prevention of plastic use is must 🌎

Hold up - what exactly is carbon?
Before we get into this, let's get back to the (not so basic) basics.
Carbon is something we hear about all the time 'Big rise in atmospheric CO2 expected in 2019' and 'Carbon lurking in deep ocean threw ancient climate switch'. But what does all of this mean?! I'll be honest with you, I had no idea before I started researching for this piece. .

Here's what I found:
Carbon is EVERYTHING. Literally everything. It's the atom that forms every living thing, none of us would exist if it wasn't for carbon.
Carbon dioxide (the killer) is carbon combined with oxygen.
CO2 is a very high profile greenhouse gas (or GHG)
Carbon dioxide is stored in trees and released into the atmosphere through plant and animal respiration. But, this cycle is all out of whack due to human behaviour.
Behaviours such as deforestation, burning fossil fuels and the increase in animal flatulence (specifically cow farts) - due to the boost in demand for meat, because of overpopulation.
CO2 is a gas that traps heat and because we are producing so much of... Show more...
 

South Africa is blowing its carbon budget - It is the world’s 14th largest emitter of carbon dioxide


South Africa has a climate change problem. Per person, South Africans emit more than anyone outside of the West. It is the world’s 14th largest emitter of carbon dioxide. Three-quarters of these emissions come from Eskom’s coal-fired power plants and Sasol’s coal-to-liquid fuel plant at Secunda, the largest in the world.

Tackling emissions effectively would mean taking tough decisions about these. But the country’s plans are nowhere near ambitious enough. If they were, Eskom would either have to close down its Medupi and Kusile power plants (which are just coming into operation) or Sasol would have to close down its lucrative Secunda plant.

Both entities have indicated that this is not going to happen. Sasol has said it won’t build another plant like Secunda, partly because of its carbon footprint.

South Africa’s national plan for lowering carbon emissions was drawn up in 2007 before the global financial crash... Show more...
 

China has an online platform to pay people to plant trees. The Platform is helping the Chinese Govt to trap carbon emissions and combat poverty. The Officials helping villagers record the trees they plant, calculate their carbon sequestration, and upload the information to the online platform.
