GLACIERS UNDER EXTINCTION

Under the Paris Agreements, adopted in 2015, 195 countries adopted a common goal of keeping the rise in global temperatures below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels. A recent report published in the journal Science estimated that half of the world's glaciers (excluding Greenland and Antarctica) will disappear by 2100, even if the 'temperature increase is limited to +1.5°C. It is estimated that at least 60 percent of the glaciers in central Europe will be lost by 2100.

BRAZIL, LIGHTS AND SHADOWS ON LULA’S FIRST TWO MONTHS

The great enthusiasm that greeted the re-election of Ignacio Lula da Silva as President of Brazil last autumn also reverberated among the pavilions of COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh when the newly elected President visited the Brazilian pavilion together with Environment Minister Marina Silva. Welcomed with choruses in the activists' embrace, Lula had even gone so far as to nominate Brazil as host country for COP30, scheduled for 2025, in the Amazon, symbolically stitching up the wound produced by Bolsonaro's sudden 'no' in 2019, to COP25 already organised and then migrated first to Chile, then to Spain, now bringing it to a highly symbolic location. But how have the first two months of Lula's government gone from the point of view of the environment and climate? It is difficult, due to the complex international scenario, to draw a complete line, but the stories of a ship and of the Amazon Forest they are going to be mentioned, help us in the clearing up our minds.
