How polluting sponsors are jeopardizing the future of winter sports

18 Mar 2024  |  fr.euronews.com
A new report by the New Weather Institute highlights the irony that winter sports are endangered by their biggest sponsors, including Audi and Equinor, whose carbon emissions are melting significant snow cover. The report calculates the climate impact of sponsorship deals with polluting industries, estimating that these sponsors cause the melting of nearly 2,000 square kilometers of spring snow annually. Record temperatures across Europe have led to the cancellation of ski races and the closure of ski resorts. The report, along with the Badvertising campaign, calls for winter sports organizations and athletes to reject polluting sponsors and for increased transparency in sponsorship deals. Successful climate campaigns in tennis and rugby have led to the termination of contracts with polluting companies, and the report urges a complete withdrawal of major climate change drivers from the sports field.

How much snow is Ski World Cup sponsor Audi melting? Activists come up with world-first formula

16 Mar 2024  |  euronews.com
A report by the New Weather Institute claims that winter sports sponsors like Audi and Equinor are responsible for melting nearly 2,000 square kilometers of snow annually due to their carbon emissions. The 'Dirty Snow' report introduces a formula to measure the climate impact of sponsorship deals with high-carbon industries. The report's release coincides with the FIS Ski World Cup in Austria, sponsored by Audi. The study highlights the irony of winter sports being endangered by their major sponsors and calls for a break from polluting companies to ensure the future of winter sports. Climate change has already led to the cancellation of ski races and the increased use of artificial snow in European ski resorts. Athletes and campaigners are urging winter sports to reject polluting sponsors and are advocating for transparency in sponsorship deals.

Extreme weather is turning many into climate migrants: How does it feel to face leaving home?

19 Dec 2023  |  euronews.com
Kalita Titi Homasi, a 23-year-old from Tuvalu, discusses the impact of climate change on her homeland and the difficult prospect of climate-induced migration. The COP28 UN climate summit in Dubai did not phase out fossil fuels, which affects low-lying island nations like Tuvalu. However, a new loss and damage fund was created to support climate mobility. Tuvalu has signed an agreement with Australia to allow its citizens to migrate there. The deal has been criticized for potentially infringing on Tuvalu's sovereignty. The article also explores the importance of climate mobility and adaptation, with insights from other youth delegates and experts. Harriette Okal, a Kenyan youth delegate, emphasizes the need for local adaptation to prevent displacement, while Ahmed from Somalia discusses the challenges faced by his community due to climate change. The article highlights the need for climate literacy and the involvement of young people in adaptation efforts.

Why are climate changes a 'child rights crisis'?

13 Dec 2023  |  pt.euronews.com
Nearly half of the world's child population lives in climate-vulnerable countries, with a third affected by both climate crisis and poverty. Extreme weather has internally displaced 43 million children over six years. However, less than 3% of major global climate funds have been spent on supporting children since 2006. Inger Ashing of Save the Children emphasized the need to address climate change as a child rights crisis. The report by Save the Children, Plan International, and UNICEF found that only 2.4% of climate funds support activities meeting children's needs. The COP has yet to make an official decision focusing on children and climate crisis, and children's voices are largely absent from the process. The need for child-inclusive decision-making in climate policy and funding is highlighted.

Here's how Colombian indigenous children have immortalized climate change

08 Dec 2023  |  fr.euronews.com
Indigenous Wayuu children in northern Colombia have documented the effects of climate change through photography, focusing on severe droughts, irregular rainfall, and high temperatures that challenge their survival. Save the Children organized a workshop with photographer Angela Ponce, teaching children to capture their experiences. The resulting images, showcased at COP28, highlight the urgent need for climate action centered on children's experiences and rights. The Wayuu tribe, suffering from water scarcity and health issues due to contaminated water sources, is emblematic of the disproportionate impact of climate change on vulnerable communities. The Colombian government has declared an emergency in La Guajira, where the Wayuu live, and organizations like Save the Children are calling for increased funding to support low-income countries facing the climate crisis.

Climate advocates denounce the inefficiency of the first 100% ecological flight

28 Nov 2023  |  es.euronews.com
Climate advocates criticize the first transatlantic flight powered by 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as ineffective and a form of greenwashing. The flight, operated by Virgin Atlantic from London Heathrow to New York's JFK airport, used fuel derived from non-fossil sources like residual fats and corn production waste. Critics argue that SAF cannot be produced at a scale to significantly reduce aviation's carbon emissions, which account for 2.5% of global emissions. The aviation industry acknowledges the current limitations of SAF but views the flight as a significant achievement towards decarbonizing long-distance air travel. The event coincides with the upcoming UN COP28 climate summit, where airlines are promoting 'green' flights using SAF.

Climate campaigners criticize first 100% green-fueled flight as insufficient

28 Nov 2023  |  www.euronews.com
Climate campaigners have criticized the first 100% green-fueled flight from London to New York, powered by sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), as a minor contribution in the context of global aviation emissions. They argue that SAFs cannot be scaled up sufficiently to significantly reduce the industry's carbon footprint. Virgin Atlantic's CEO Shai Weiss acknowledges the current limitations in SAF production but hails the flight as a momentous achievement. The flight's timing, just before the UN COP28 climate summit, has also been called out as greenwashing by environmental groups.

Rich countries need to ‘step up’ funding for adaptation as climate risks grow, warns UN report

02 Nov 2023  |  euronews.com
The UN's Adaptation Gap Report reveals a significant shortfall in funding for climate change adaptation in developing countries, with the annual gap estimated between $194 billion and $366 billion. Despite a 2009 pledge by developed countries to provide $100 billion a year by 2020, the finance has not been fully secured. The UN Secretary-General António Guterres emphasizes the urgency of the situation as climate-related disasters become more frequent and severe. The COP28 climate summit in Dubai will focus on mobilizing more funds for adaptation. The UNEP report suggests that developing countries will need $215 to $387 billion per year until 2030 for adaptation, with costs expected to rise by 2050. The report also outlines seven ways to increase climate finance, including a windfall tax on fossil fuel companies, and calls for developed countries to fulfill their financial commitments.
