tidbits #46

Some news on environmental issues around the globe collected for your convenience:

  • France reduces share of nuclear power in its electricity mix to 50% by 2035 from around 75% now, and instead increases the share of renewables. Plans to build new nuclear plants are on hold. (https://www.reuters.com/article/france-nuclearpower-idUSL8N29E2Z7)
  • This is to all US voters: Republican government keeps on dismanteling/destroying your national parks. If you want to avoid this vote for the Democrats. (https://t.co/Wwt2RI2Qlb?amp=1)
  • Climate change impacts mountain stability all over the Alps, la Meije, similar problems with Cengalo, Grandes Jorasses and many more. (https://t.co/yIPkfTorrK?amp=1)
  • And Luxembourg is the first country that makes national travel on busses and trains completely free. Is this going to be a game changer for Luxembourg? Definitely not, because public transport was already so heavily subsidized that one could travel throughout the whole country with bus and train for 2.50€. But at least it shows that the country has good intentions. (https://transports.public.lu/fr/contexte/strategie/modu2.html)
