Climate Change- Worlds hottest day on record- July 3, 2023 The world's average temperature reached a new high on Monday 3 July, topping 17 degrees Celsius for the first time.
Scientists say the reading was the highest in any instrumental record dating back to the end of the 19th century. The high heat is due to a combination of the El Niño weather event and ongoing emissions of carbon dioxide. Researchers believe there will be more records in the coming months as El Niño strengthens.
Elektrek reported today on a new motorized skateboard “Electric skateboards are a blast no matter what type you’re riding or where you’re doing it. Just having a fast, fun form of transportation in a compact package you can carry under your arm is a feat in and of itself. But off-road electric longboards ratchet up the fun several notches by taking you beyond just cruising the bike paths and out into nature. The WowGo AT2 Plus is an all-terrain e-board that can handle any type of terrain you throw at it, doing so without breaking the bank.”

Forde, July 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EarlyBirds is helping governments and private companies working towards a greener future explore, pick, and fund the most promising CO2 removal technologies currently undergoing development. More information about the Australian OSINT platform can be found at earlybirds.io.
EarlyBirds co-founder Kris Poria says, “While CCS technologies focus on preventing harmful greenhouse gases from being emitted in the first place, CDR solutions attempt to reduce the concentration of carbon dioxide that is already present in the atmosphere. Right now, there is a choice between adapting and implementing several nature-based and technology-based CDR solutions. While both have their pros and cons, as more and more years pass and we inch closer to that 1.5-degree threshold, the nature-based solutions are just not going to be viable anymore for ensuring the long-term safety of human life on this planet.”
Natural solutions for carbon removal include reforestation, cropland agroforestry, urban reforestation, biomass carbon removal and storage (BiCRS), ocean-based approaches, and more. However, these solutions have a limited impact due to comparatively low carbon removal potential, low scalability, and their tendency to be locally isolated. Engineered CDR solutions, on the other hand, can achieve higher carbon sequestration and can be deployed in places where natural solutions just cannot succeed
