It isn't as bad as you think. Or maybe it is.

Another week has passed and we're back with the climate updates! This is "Let's balance out" and you'll read one good news and one bad news about the climate crisis. Shall we begin?

So what do you want first? The good news or the bad news?
BAD NEWS

It looks like that in the US temperatures are going up as crazy. And with this year being one of the hottest on records, the summer can't look pretty. In particular, health workers are warning that heat waves will collide with the Coronavirus pandemic, and this will have deadly consequences for poor, minorities and elders.

While in New York, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Los Angeles they are trying to find solutions to help citizens, these are not wide enough to protect all the ones at risk.
GOOD NEWS

The world's largest all-electric aircraft has completed its first flight yesterday.

It's called Cessna Grand Caravan and it's developed by magniX, even though it can carry 9 passengers the test flight was with the pilot alone.

The aviation industry is one of the largest sources of carbon emissions and this is a good step in a more sustainable direction! Just think that this plane here produces no carbon emissions!
