Climate Change and Donald Trump – Just ignore him

I am not a person of many words. So let me be short and concise on what I think about the latest news that Donald Trump will be pulling out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement with the US.

Just ignore him. He does not represent the US people real viewpoint and seems to solely act on what he believes is right. Well he is wrong. Just look at the science and you will see what is going on: NASA on Climate Change.

So please do me a favor during the next weeks when you hear about the US and Paris Climate Change Agreement and just ignore Donald Trump.

The world is already moving on:

China and EU strengthen commitment to Paris deal with US poised to step away

3 useful articles on Electric Vehicles (EV) future outlook

We have two cars in our family. I am proud to say that both are hybrid vehicles. This fact might show you that I am not a petrol head! Quite the opposite. 

Eventually we as a family will convert to electric vehicles (EV) one day. But so far there are few alternatives to realistically switch to 2 pure EV’s when you take our family’s annual travel distances into consideration (Holiday trips with the car exceeding 500 km, family size of 4+, a non reliable charging points network in Europe and fairly long charging duration per charge while on a trip).

Fortunately things are changing. That is why I wanted to share 3 current news items on EV developments I found interesting. Here they are:

If you have another other interesting EV articles please let me know.

Stay informed. Some Corp blogs on Democracy, Politics and Sustainability

I will from now on provide short posts about the new era of Sustainability and CSR challenges after the world-changing Brexit decision and a surge of authoritarianism in the US (dare I say this T-word again…No I will resist for now).

Why? Simple. If you stay informed you know what is going on around you and you can make an informed decision. Something that is clearly missing in the daily Trump universe (there I wrote it).

Here are some interesting articles to read to finish of your week. 4 blogs from corporations and 1 from Jeffrey Hollender:

Have a good weekend everyone!

Resuming normal blogging service this week

The past two weeks where totally packed with private appointments. It was therefore impossible to find the time to blog in my regular capacity unfortunately.

Now everything is getting close to normal and I can start to catch up on the Sustainability / CSR news and events I missed.

Here are some interesting news and blog items I found this week so far:

More posts to follow this week if all the catching up goes according to plan. If there is anything you have to share in terms of Sustainability / CSR news please let me know in the comments section.
