Let's balance out

Luxembourg and beaches
Published by Charlie on 2020-03-06
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?
GOOD NEWS

As you may have heard, Luxembourg has become the first country to make all public transport free! This is a huge win both for students (man, you don't know how much I would like to be the one to not pay to get to school) and for the climate!

They did this to reduce car traffic, but it also increases the chances of people using public transport instead of cars!
BAD NEWS

Studies are being made about the effect of climate change on beaches and it looks like by the end of the century half of the world sandy beaches will have retreated significantly as the level of sea will be rising.

If you want to know more, here you can find everything, including some maps about where this will be most likely to happen and how the coasts will change.
