A year before COP26, new report from Energy Transitions Commission highlights actions required by 2030 to achieve zero-carbon economy by mid-century

LONDON, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — A coalition of 45 leaders from global energy producers, energy-intensive industries, financial institutions and environmental advocates – including ArcelorMittal, Bank of America, BP, Development Research Center of the State Council of China, EBRD, HSBC, Iberdrola, Ørsted, Shell, Sinopec Capital, Tata Group, Volvo Group and the World Resources Institute among others – argues in this report that the world can and must achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by mid-century, and that in the long term “zero must mean zero”, with no permanent rather than transitional reliance on negative emissions to balance continued large-scale emissions from the energy system and industry. It also lays out steps needed in the next decade to achieve that objective.

September 11, 2020

Making the world a more equitable place where everyone can thrive seems so complex and challenging at times that it is difficult to determine where to focus one’s energy. Addressing those complex issues with improvements to sidewalks and crosswalks doesn’t seem like the obvious answer, but it is one way that the City of Richfield is taking steps to address inequality and make the city more accessible for all.

For years, the city’s well-known Sweet Streets campaign has been committed to a robust public engagement and communications process for each of the major projects taking place in the community. The Sweet Streets campaign has seen the reconstruction of major roads in the community, expansion of bicycle infrastructure and utility upgrades. The initiative is focused on eight guiding principles that direct each project.

“Sweet Streets was really where we began to re-balance our transportation priorities,” said Kristin Asher,

Tesla Model 3s are now able to detect previously undetectable aftermarket modifications and upgrades by a Canadian company, but that company is already shipping a “Nice Try Module” that it claims will allow its modifications to continue working undetected.

The news shows how Tesla continues to try to control how customers use their cars, and how tinkerers are finding ways to bypass those controls.

The Drive reported on Tuesday that installing Ingenext’s Tesla “Boost 50” upgrade—which increases the vehicle’s performance by 50 horsepower and allows a driver to go from zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds—would now elicit a persistent warning message from the Model 3’s interface screen. The message appeared only after downloading Tesla’s most recent over-the-air operating system update. As The Drive reported, while Tesla owners with these modifications installed couldn’t get the warning message to go away, the car continued to work

Get COVID Vaccine To World

It will take more than 8,000 Boeing 747 all-cargo jets to deliver a COVID-19 vaccine to 8 billion people worldwide. If more than one dose is required, the required airlift will be much greater, the International Air Transport Association says.

Airline industry officials are warning that an air cargo system suffering from severe capacity shortages and not equipped to move massive quantities of temperature-sensitive cargo will be stretched to its limits without sustained collaboration between governments, aid agencies, transportation providers and manufacturers.

Governments should organize public-private partnerships and coordinate with one another to plan emergency distribution, help pre-establish a network of warehouses and transportation capabilities, and remove regulatory impediments to logistics operations, IATA and freight-handling companies say.

Whether the equivalent of 8,000 jumbo jet flights are needed for the COVID-19 vaccine is open to debate. Trucks are expected to help deliver vaccines in developed economies with manufacturing capacity. There may
