Sungevity's Klimaatnieuws - Week 41

We helpen je graag energie besparen. Daarom zetten we het laatste (internationale) solar-, klimaat-, en energienieuws voor je op een rijtje. Hoef je dat niet meer zelf te doen.

- Let’s start with some great news! The Dutch appeals court upheld an earlier ruling that the Dutch government needs to accelerate carbon emissions cuts, reports Trouw (Dutch) in ‘Van de argumenten van de staat blijft niets overeind in hoger beroep tegen Urgenda’. Want to know more about the case, but don’t speak Dutch? The Guardian also reports on the case: “Climate change is a grave danger,” ruled Judge Tan de Sonnaville. “Any postponement of emissions reductions exacerbates the risks of climate change. The Dutch government cannot hide behind other countries’ emissions. It has an independent duty to reduce emissions from its own territory.” All over the world, similar cases are being planned.

- Only one day before the ruling, the VN climate panel IPCC’s most recent report came out. And it was a shocker: the world is well on its way to 3℃ global temperature rise. The preferred target of a total temperature rise of 1,5℃, agreed upon in the Paris agreements (that also mention an absolute temperature rise limit of 2℃) could already be reached in 2030 warns the BBC in ‘Final call to save the world from 'climate catastrophe'’. The IPCC scientists warn that we will need "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society" to stick to the 1,5℃ goal - ‘Klimaatdoel Parijs wordt vrijwel zeker niet gehaald, is de pijnlijke boodschap van het IPCC’, Volkskrant. Want to know more about the differences between a 1,5℃ and 2℃ temperature rise? Carbonbrief extracted data from approximately 70 peer-reviewed climate studies and made a beautiful interactive website showing how ‘global warming is projected to affect the world and its regions’.

- Good news on the solar front: ‘Energieopwek.nl: 2 keer zo veel zonne-energie door meer zonnepanelen en goede zomer’ - Solarmagazine. The Dutch website Energieopwek, that live tracks all sustainable energy produced in the Netherlands, reports that almost twice as much solar energy has been produced in the last 3 months, compared to July-September 2017. A large part of this rise in production is contributed to the installation of many more solar panels. The remaining part is contributed to the good summer weather.
