CARBON JACKED CLIMATE NEWS 26/08/22
Rounding up this week’s climate news so you don’t have to.
1. SHOULD HAVE BEEN BIGGER NEWS: Google now massively underestimates the climate impact of flights. The change follows consultations with “industry partners” (so that would be, um, airlines...).
2. NAUGHTY NATURE: A real-life Beauty and the Beast this week. The reintroduction of bison to a Kent nature reserve is already proving to be a huge success, and the large blue butterfly (yes, that’s the technical name) has seen its best Summer in the UK in 150 years.
3. CREATIVE COMPANIES: We’ve still not mastered turning water into wine (apart from that one time...), but hopefully Coca Cola will have better luck turning carbon dioxide into sugar. Check out their plans here.
