surprising green headlines?

?1 time to bring green to construction- 40% of emissions- where do ordinary people fire up imagination for green construction - my nomination an infrastructure investment summit hosted by korea in 2017 - i couldn't get to luxembourg, or mumbai versions in 2018,9; hope to connect uae version oct 2021 with glasgow cop26- suggestions welcome  

?2 if there is climate justice it seems that elon musk became the world's richest man as a south african hated for most of his time by wall street but treated as a rockstar in hong kong where he is attributed to starting the nations startup culture after the 2015 launch of sdgs and china -

but today he takes a giant leap beyond borders with 100 million dollar launch of a beyond carbon competition - in biden week 1 full of poetry and hopeful talk here we have an entrepreneurial  walk

EA writes -lets hope biden first 100 days start with contextualising biggest climate challenge to each g7 leader-ending trudeau's keystone nightmare is a great start for america the green and pleasant land

Our climate is changing.
Droughts, floods, heatwaves, wildfires, and sea level rise
mean we need to change with it.
We need to learn to work together to become more resilient.
We must adapt.


That is why the Netherlands is hosting the world’s first Climate Adaptation Summit
on January 25, 2021.
Heads of state, the scientific community,
the private sector, international organisations, and youth groups
will meet online to help the world prepare better
for the effects of climate change.
We will launch an agenda for the coming decade to accelerate adaptation action.
Be an early adapter and join us for the Climate Adaptation Summit.

CAS 2021: Accelerating Adaptation Action

Our planet is getting warmer, which has a growing impact on our societies and economies. We need to adapt to a new, more extreme climate.

The online international Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021 on 25 and 26 January, hosted by the Netherlands, convenes global leaders and local stakeholders. It will see the launch of a comprehensive Adaptation Action Agenda that sets out clear commitments to deliver concrete new endeavours and partnerships to make our world more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Over the course of 24 hours, a range of events streamed from time zones across the globe will inspire change and support tangible solutions to the problems of a warming world, showing how we can achieve a climate-resilient future.

Take a sneak preview of the CAS 2021 programme and be sure to join.
