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. Here you can find the article of last week. Shall we begin?
So what do you want first? The good news or the bad news?
The UK has announced that they wat to reach net zero emissions, as we can read in this article by the BBC. They are investing a lot on electical cars, also adding street charging points in cities. The goal for zero emissions is set for 2050 and it has been announced exactly 12 days before COP26 in Glasgow. The government wants to intervene also on the emissions that come from households, more specifically from heating systems, which will be pushed to be low-carbon. To manage all of this they have to act on many different aspects, otherwise the risk is that they will not keep their promises by 2050.
