Risparmiare gas è il motto in vista dell'inverno in Germania. L'instabilità geopolitica, il rischio che la Russia tagli le forniture in qualsiasi momento e le carenze nei serbatoi, hanno spinto il governo federale a lanciare un appello ai comuni tedeschi, che sono stati invitati ad usare con parsimonia il gas. Hannover, capitale della Bassa Sassonia, è diventata così la prima grande città in Europa a tagliare l'acqua calda negli edifici pubblici, nelle piscine e nelle palestre. Crisi del gas. L'Austria corre ai ripari con l'energia "fai da te" L'inverno sta arrivando.

L’Allemagne investit de plus en plus dans l‘énergie éolienne, alors que la dynamique est lente à démarrer dans une grande partie de l’Union Européenne, selon un nouveau rapport Le pays fait de moins en moins confiance à l‘énergie nucléaire , et a ajouté plus de 5 gigawatts d‘énergie renouvelable à sa production en 2016 selon les chiffres de Wind Europe. La France et les Pays-Bas ont elles aussi ajouté de grandes quantités de nouvelle énergie cette année. “L’année dernière, plus de la moitié des pays de l’Union européeene n’ont rien investi dans l‘éolien”, selon Olivier Joy, le porte-parole de Wind Europe. “Ce chiffre est intéressant parce qu’il montre que les installations sont de plus en plus concentrées sur certains marchés, particulièrement dans le Nord-Ouest de l’Europe et dans les pays nordiques”. “Actuellement, seulement 7 des 28 états-membres ont une stratégie claire sur les énergies renouvelables après 2020.

By Steven McIntosh Published 41 minutes ago Share close Share page Copy link About sharing The Kite Runner has become the first show on Broadway to require audiences to wear masks at certain performances. The move is particularly notable as the show's weekly mask-only night will be on Fridays - one of the most popular nights in New York's theatre district. Fans who are disabled or have other health vulnerabilities have long called for theatres to host mask-only nights. But the major theatres in London's West End have yet to introduce such a scheme.

As a result, it has become increasingly rare in recent months to see audience members wearing facemasks at the vast majority of West End … [Read more...] about The Kite Runner: Broadway show first to adopt mask-only nights

By Jonathan Amos Published 14 February 2014 Share close Share page Copy link About sharing The cat parasite Toxoplasma gondii , which can cause blindness in people, has been identified in Beluga in the western Arctic. The discovery by University of British Columbia scientists has prompted a health advisory to Inuit people in the region who eat the whale's meat. Researchers say it is an example of how the warming of the Arctic is allowing the freer movement of pathogens. Icier conditions in the past acted as an obstruction to infectious agents. “Ice is a significant ecological barrier and it influences the way in which pathogens can be transmitted in nature and your risk of exposure,” said molecular parasitologist Michael Grigg. “What we’re finding with the changes ongoing in the Arctic is that we’re getting new pathogens emerging to cause diseases in the region … [Read more...] about Cat parasite found in Arctic Beluga
