GDL sets the course for train drivers’ strikes in August

The good news first: strikes at the railways will be off the table in the next few weeks. But that only postponed the dispute – the train drivers’ union remains on strike.BDrivers in Germany can breathe a sigh of relief for a while: they don’t have to prepare for a strike until August. The union of German locomotive drivers (GDL) wants to first call its members to a ballot, as the chairman Claus Weselsky said on Thursday in Berlin.“The GDL will not call for warning strikes of a few hours or a day. You will first hold a ballot, “it said in a message from the union. This will be counted on August 9th. If the train drivers vote for strikes in this vote, they could then quickly be on the agenda.A good two weeks ago, the union had declared the failure of the collective bargaining and an...

Raising awareness of food # 1

Against the background of climate change, the Rhine-Main area urgently needs to deal with the issue of drinking water supply. This also applies to consumers. PThe message could hardly have come more extensively: Last Friday, when all of Hessen was only sweating because the temperatures kept climbing above 30 degrees, the first peak in drinking water consumption in the Rhine-Main region was reached this year . Last year it was even a little higher on a day at the end of June.For the municipal drinking water supplier Hessenwasser, the record number is an occasion to point out the importance of “drinking water as food no. 1”. “We want to raise awareness of the economical use of the most important resource,” warns Hessenwasser.

Estimate the cost required to prevent heat stroke due to global warming

As global warming progresses, people around the world will work in a hotter environment. Longer breaks are needed to prevent heat stroke, which reduces productivity. A research group at the National Institute for Environmental Studies and the University of Tsukuba said that if global warming progresses without taking measures to reduce carbon dioxide, the productivity lost to prevent heat stroke will be lost to prevent heat stroke in the world’s gross domestic product (2100). It has been announced that it will reach 4% of GDP). The amount of loss is comparable to the cost required for aggressive measures to curb global warming.This research is characterized by realistic calculations that take into account how much air conditioners will become widespread according to the economic developmen...
