A Pandemic for Cleaner Air?


Posted by Andreas Klippe | May 8, 2020

The COVID Pandemic has gripped the world. What started as the novel coronavirus back in December has spread out bringing industries to a standstill, crippling world economies. Millions have been infected and hundreds of thousands have perished. Even now, the COVID Pandemic is already widely accepted as a defining moment for this generation. 

It is noteworthy that science is of utmost importance now. We now look to scientists and doctors to bring us out of this struggle. Sure as clouds have silver linings, the quarantines and shutdowns that resulted from the pandemic has given us all a glimpse of what life looks like when destructive human activities are reduced. Let’s see what this break from industrial waste and pollution means for our future.

February 2020 Weather Recap


Posted by Andreas Klippe | March 2, 2020

Climate change continues to develop and change. While it has not come to the point where we are getting storms in the dry season, evidently, we are feeling more intense effects from what used to be mild weather.

This raises another worry where climate change is indirectly causing deaths. Europe has been dealing with consecutive summer heatwaves. With buildings that have been designed to keep heat in, heat strokes have become a major concern with a number of casualties reported every year. It is revealing to us that existing infrastructure is not equipped to deal with climate change, and even modern countries are not fully prepared.

WORLD WEATHER

Official data has now confirmed that January 2020 was Earth’s hottest month on record. After 141 years of meteorological record-keeping, land and water temperatures worldwide were exceptionally high. Every January for the past 5 years have been the hottest. Europe was 3 degrees Celsius warmer compared to the 1981-2001 average. (more…)

Are you flood ready?


Posted by Andreas Klippe | February 21, 2020

Time and again, preparedness has been regarded as one of the most important values a person can have. Being prepared and being ready has been the central principle of countless organizations, from scouting groups, public services, to heads of states. It is plain and simple a good value to hold.

Visualize yourself living near a river. Look beyond the relaxing sounds of rushing water. If you have been paying attention, then by now you would have already thought about the risks. Of course, there are risks to living anywhere whether by choice or by circumstance. In this case, preparing could mean taking note of rainfall in your area and perhaps the areas upstream too; to be ready in case the river overflows. Preparation may be tedious but without it, it could mean losing lives and valuable investments if you are caught with your pants down.

GOOD NEWS: The Earthshot Prize


Posted by Andreas Klippe | February 1, 2020

When writing and talking about climate change, the threats become the most highlighted, especially so in mainstream media. We touched these points in a previous article on climate change alarmism. This exposure to bad news makes it very refreshing to be able to share good ones. We dedicate a significant amount of time to news telling us the dangers we should prepare for so perhaps we should also show the same dedication to good news.

In this series of articles, we will find uplifting news about efforts and actions done to help preserve the environment. Let’s hear some good news for a change!

A Positive Start for the Decade
To start 2020, Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine of the British monarchy launched the Earthshot Prize. From 2021 to 2030, five solutions to top environmental concerns will be awarded funds annually. A multi-million prize to fund environmental solutions await the winners.

The Earthshot Prize will have a total of 50 winners by 2030. Famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough calls it “most prestigious environmental prize in history”. The name was inspired by John F. Kennedy’s call for unified efforts to reach the Moon in the 1960s. The Prince calls the Earthshot Prize a decade of action to repair the Earth.
