Land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. At the same time, keeping global warming to well below 2 °C can be achieved only by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors including land and food, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in its latest report on Thursday.

Treibstoffverbrauch und CO2-Emissionen von neuen Personenwagen haben 2018 deutlich zugenommen

Die in der Schweiz im Jahr 2018 neu zugelassenen Personenwagen verbrauchen durchschnittlich 6.08 Liter Benzinäquivalent pro 100 Kilometer. Gegenüber dem Vorjahr (5.87 l/100 km) hat der Verbrauch damit um 3.6% zugenommen. Die durchschnittlichen CO2-Emissionen der Neuwagen lagen mit rund 137.8 g CO2 pro Kilometer ebenfalls höher als im Vorjahr (134.1 g CO2/km). Die CO2-Emissionen der neu zugelassenen Lieferwagen und leichten Sattelschleppern, die ab 2020 ebenfalls unter die CO2-Emissionsvorschriften fallen, lagen bei 183.3 g CO2/km und gingen im Vergleich zum Vorjahr (185.3 g CO2/km) zurück.

“Now that you have the support, you should be able to do more”

What is the best way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by scientists travelling for business, particularly by plane? This was the issue to be discussed at the morning conference «Decarb science! But how?» ahead of the SCNAT Delegate Assembly on 24 May. The colossal scale of the problem lies in the fact that it requires a change in scientific culture. Ultimately, there are no straightforward answers: a creative, nuanced approach is what is needed.
