Hidalgo reporte son plongeon dans la Seine prévu le 23 juin au 30 du même mois: en cause, le "fort débit d'eau lié aux pluies du mois de mai", selon la Ville, qui entraîne un rejet d'eaux usées dans le fleuve. Initialement, Macron et les préfets de police et d'Ile de France devaient plonger, manifestement, rien n'est moins sûr (je vous avez déjà parlé). Pas de bol pour les JO. Encore une promesse qui boit la tasse.

The brain can store a lot of data, but pollution will actually mess up your head in a bad way.

Air pollution exposure tied to heightened dementia risk, by Eric W. Dolan June 3, 2024

"...Recent research has suggested that environmental factors, such as air pollution, may contribute to the development of dementia. Air pollution, already known to cause cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, might also promote brain inflammation and accelerate cognitive decline. This study aimed to investigate these potential links in Denmark, a country with relatively low but still significant air pollution levels..."

Now imagine the pollution levels in the US, and how much more illness we have because of it.

Across North Wales & Northern England flood waters (caused by rain) are increasing the danger of lead poisoning of agricultural land from disused lead mines.

While this problem has been known about for some years, little has been done to deal with it, but recent shifts in weather patterns now make this an urgent issue for aspects of the UK food chain.

A climate threat lurks in rivers around the world. New research shows where

Rivers & streams offer far more than pretty scenery or an opportunity for a summertime cool-off. They make up an important component of a global system that determines how much carbon is stored in soil or sent into the atmosphere

New research shows that human activities are directly disrupting this system & increasing the amount of carbon sent into the atmosphere

Climate marches in eight Finnish cities ahead of "decisive" European election

+Maybe we think that there are bigger crises in the world now, and that we’ll have time to come back to climate issues later, but we can no longer ignore them
