Скорость таяния ледников Гренландии стала рекордной: уровень Мирового океана вскоре поднимется на 10 см (ВИДЕО)

Даже если мир перейдет на жесткую "энергетическую диету", темпы таяния ледников Гренландии к концу столетия останутся выше всех рекордов прошлых 12 тысяч лет. Но если выбросы парниковых газов будут расти прежними темпами, то скорость таяния будет в четыре раза выше всех известных максимумов.

At a Glance - Amending Budget No 7/2020: Update of revenue (own resources) - 30-09-2020

The purpose of Draft Amending Budget No 7/2020 (DAB 7/2020) is to update the revenue side of the budget, taking into account the latest economic developments. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the outlook for the European economy has changed significantly since the budget was adopted. DAB 7 proposes the following adjustments on the revenue side of the 2020 budget: an update of the estimates for traditional own resources, the own resources based on the value added tax and gross national income. Further updates concern the United Kingdom correction, other revenue taking into account paid-up fines and penalty payments up to June 2020, as well as negative exchange rate differences. The European Parliament is expected to vote on the Council's position on DAB 7/2020 during the October I plenary session. Source : © European Union, 2020 - EP

At a Glance - Regulating digital finance - 30-09-2020

The use of new technologies to enable and enhance the activities of the financial sector has the potential to provide significant benefits, including efficiency gains, cost reductions, improved data management and transparency. At the same time, it entails risks in fields such as financial stability, financial crime and consumer protection. These risks may further increase due to the fragmented regulatory landscape in the EU, and uneven global developments in regulating the sector. There is therefore a need for the EU to create a comprehensive and stable regulatory framework in this area. Parliament is expected to debate a legislative-initiative report with recommendations to the European Commission to act in this area during its October I plenary session.

At a Glance - European forest strategy – The way forward - 30-09-2020

Forests and woods cover nearly half of the land surface of the EU. They play a vital role as they have the potential to mitigate the effects of climate change, provide many ecosystem services, contribute to the development of the circular bio-economy and provide employment for some 2.6 million people, in particular in rural areas. The European Parliament is expected to vote during its October I plenary session on an own-initiative report emphasising the need for an ambitious and strong EU forest strategy beyond 2020, aligned with the European Green Deal and the 2030 biodiversity strategy, and coordinated with the Farm to Fork strategy.
