Last week summary

27 July – 2 August 2020

European Safary Company has interviewed Mario Cipollone, team leader of Rewilding Apennines. Plenty of reasons to check this out. First, Mario works with his team, on the mountains of central Italy, across the region of Marche and Abruzzo. Rewilding Apennines is a project that aims to increase biodiversity and preserve species in this fragile area, increasingly affected by human activity. The concept of eco-tourism, in the form of financing conservation projects through sustainable and educational exploration of these areas are a key aspect of how Mario, but many more, are doing their bit to preserve natural beauties.

Have you ever wondered about trees lifespan? How old can a tree “grow”?

Could we possibly achieve net-zero emissions by keeping the power supply stable? Can solar and wind energy fuel an energy intensive planet such as Earth? They could but the transition would be likely to require some time, during which we would be still burning fossil fuels (also to have energy to produce solar panels, what a paradox). However, even though we didn’t grasp yet the exact way, hydrogen could be the answer to our problems. The only one? It could, unfortunately. Carbonbrief, quoting a study made by the National Grid, claimed that the UK can only meet its targets of net-zero emissions by 2050 by switching to hydrogen.
