    British Crown Prince William is in New York to discuss what efforts are required to speed up the fight against climate change and protect the environment. On site met the UN Secretary-General António Guterres, writes Reuters news agency.

    They also discussed efforts to ensure the swift implementation of the global goals for sustainable development, as well as how development should be financed, according to a spokesperson.

    Guterres warned that the targets “need a global rescue plan”.

    During his visit to New York, William will also select finalists for the Earthshot prize.

    – I know that our generation can take the measures we need to change for a healthy and sustainable world, he says according to Reuters.

    DEBATE: “The banks are driving the climate crisis”

    We must recognize that the banks’ money creation is of decisive importance for all of our futures, write the debaters. Photo: GETTY

    “The banks have the power to create money. It doesn’t matter how destructive an investment project is to society, at least some bank will still finance the project with new money as long as the law allows it – and the bank believes the borrower will be able to repay.

    The state, which has authorized the banks’ money creation, has a moral responsibility to ensure that the monetary system is organized for the good of the planet and the public,” write 13 debaters on Aftonbladet Debatt today.

    Diesel exhaust increases mortality in bumblebees

    Air pollution increases human mortality. Now studies show that the same applies to bumblebees. Two new studies show that bumblebees are harmed by diesel exhaust particles.

    IN the one study did the researchers on University of Bayreuth tests on dark hops. The bumblebees ingested exhaust gases that researchers at the University of Bayreuth produced from the combustion processes in a four-cylinder diesel engine of the type often found in passenger cars and which corresponded to foraging on flowers near a road. It was found that the gut flora and microbiome of the bumblebees were greatly impaired, leading to weakened immunity and resistance to disease. They thus suffered from increased mortality.

    The second study focused on how the particles affected the immune system and were able to show that after just ten days the bumblebees received more eVisa

    DEBATE: “The government does not take responsibility for the climate crisis”

    By pitting the climate against people’s everyday lives, the government pushes responsibility downwards, write the debaters. Photo: GETTY, TT (MONTAGE)

    “We must understand the climate crisis and social injustices are closely linked. This means, among other things, recognizing the principle of common but differentiated responsibility.

    This means that the government both can and should help people and companies make sustainable and climate-smart choices. But instead, we have seen a government that denies Sweden’s population to be part of a wider climate transition”, write the environmental sociologists at Örebro University in Aftonbladet Debatt today.

    Climate smarter cows when they ate algae supplements

    The algae feed supplement Volta Greentech can make cows burp less – and thus become climate smarter.

    The supplement reduced the cattle’s methane emissions by 80 percent per day when it was mixed into the feed.

    Newly, they are trying to make 2,000 packages of Felix meatballs from the beef at the food company Orkla’s facility in Eslöv, Scania.

    Our food accounts for approximately 30 percent of a family’s emissions, the largest share comes from meat, according to a press release from Orkla Foods Sweden.

    – We work broadly to inspire consumers to change their habits and eat more plant-based. But we also need to drive development to reduce the climate footprint of the meat we still eat. Think what effect it would have if we could halve the climate footprint just from Felix’s meatballs, Sweden’s best-selling meatball, says Environment Manager Lars Lundahl in the press release.

    Every year, roughly four million packages of Felix meatballs are sold.

  • When will politicians learn the difference between environment and climate?

    The climate is the relationship with the sun, the movements of the earth which are the major factors. Sweden’s role in this does not exist at all, in contrast to China, which emits enormous amounts of carbon dioxide and increases the burning of fossil substances every year by 33 times Sweden’s total emissions. Our politicians strain mosquitoes and swallow elephants. The attack to save the environment & climate is not about Sweden at all, but rather countries like China.

    The Skåne coast is identified as a national risk area for flooding and erosion – Löderup’s beach is particularly vulnerable.

    – Climate change means that we have to abandon the view of what the coasts look like today, says Per Danielsson at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute.

    Kristianstad is Sweden’s lowest situated city.

    New and higher dikes are now being built.

    – We are doing this to protect the city against high tides and future sea level rises, says Karl Erik Svensson, project manager for the dike construction.
