Seems that many people (including science funding bodies) still don’t get that if we want to reach a global warming target of 1.5°C, huge changes are needed right now. According to the UN, global carbon emissions reductions of around 55% are needed until 2030. That’s in nine years!
Couldn’t resist since it’s almost December 🙂
Turns out that many people have wildly unrealistic ideas about the effectiveness of their actions to limit carbon emissions. To make a dent in your carbon dioxide emissions do the following: get a new heating system, insulate your home properly, stop eating meat and stop flying if you can avoid it!

One of Szpylbert’s weirder creations. Meet Dorbonokon the space terrorist. Not sure what he wants, though. Available here:
Szpylbert on the sorry state of English politics… and yet another attempt to artistically deal with this piece of work over the Christmas holiday. Took a few tries to draw a good frontal Boris but got there in the end…
Joking aside: The middle of a pandemic is not the moment to have an uncontrolled Brexit. Viruses mutate and unforeseen things happen. Brexit must be delayed immediately.
