Sale of emission rights brings 12.5 billion euros

the oceans warm up, animal species die out, glaciers melting in the Arctic, the sea level rises and rises. In the advancing global warming, the future of humanity increases more and more of a gloomy dystopia at the same time.

A new project named "Earth's Black Box" should now document the climate crisis for future generations and for the current company. The idea is to build a black box on the west coast of Tasmania, at the southern end of Australia. A research team of the University of Tasmania and the Marketing Company Clemenger BBDO is currently working on the project around the huge steel construct.

As the "Interesting Engineering" medium reported, the Black Box should collect important data on climate change. The indestructible metal monolith, which is protected by an almost eight centimeter thick steel layer, should be ready and ready for use in mid 2022.

Study: 1.8 million additional deaths by particulate matter

 Study: 1.8 million additional deaths by particulate matter about 2.5 billion people in cities worldwide are exposed to a fine dust burden that is above the limits recommended by the World Health Organization WHO. These are about 86 percent of all people living in cities, writing the scientists. For the calculation, there were therefore data from around 13,000 cities worldwide to load with fine dust particles less than 2.5 microns. The researchers considered the period from 2000 to 2019.

Cimadata for the next 30 to 50 years

Even if the datastore is to reconstruct the course of the climate crisis primarily for a postapocalyptic society, the Australian researchers hope that the Black Box increases pressure on politics and business. The, you will find, would be more responsibility in view of the critical situation.

According to his own website , the research team has already started recording data, although the monolith is not yet. The climate data acquired, among other things, refer to the overseeing of the oceans, the energy consumption, carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere and the land and marine temperatures. But the influence of governments and businesses is also documented as the box searches and stores the Internet for information about important climate news such as large climate conferences.

 USA-A fire in a New York building is 19 dead New York-Fire / Bronx (photo, TV): USA-a fire in a New York building is 19 dead New York, January 10 (Reuters) - A fire killed Sunday 19 people, including nine children, and made dozens wounded in the New York district of the Bronx, reported the municipal authorities. The Mayor of New York, Eric Adams, confirmed the disaster assessment that declared around 11:00 am local time (16:00 GMT).

The BlackBox is operated with solar energy and has batteries that are used when the sun does not seem. To check if the device works smoothly, the experts are working on a kind of "heartbeat" sensor for the box. According to the developers, the system should be able to store climatic data for the next 30 to 50 years.

A UNESCO-supported exploration mission has resulted in the discovery of very rare coral reefs, immersed more than 30 meters deep. Their particularity? They are in perfect health and seem to have resisted global warming.
