Revealed: more than 90% of rainforest carbon offsets by biggest provider are worthless, analysis shows

"More than 90% of rainforest carbon offsets by biggest provider are worthless" It was always dubious to me that you could become carbon neutral by not cutting down forests, but it's worse than I feared.

Een rationele discussie over extra Groningen productie is in Nederland niet meer mogelijk

Good new article about gas from Groningen that explains how irrational the choice to avoid production at any cost has become. You might need to translate from Dutch but I think it's important that foreigners understand it and talk sense into our leaders.

Scientists thought carbon emissions had peaked. They’ve never been higher.

Three things are true: 1) We have the technology to make emissions go down quickly, and doing so is not only good for the planet but increases our wealth.😍 2) We are bending the emission curve downward.😍 3) We should bend the curve MUCH faster as this article shows 😭😭
