The Ides of the Climate Crisis / Éloi Laurent, Project Syndicate, 13/03/2019

Societies that have been rendered socially and politically fragile by inequality will be ill-prepared to face the environmental shocks from climate change. And as ecological conditions continue to deteriorate, we should expect to witness an explosion of injustices, new and old… lire

Flexitaérien, mode d’emploi: mérites comparés de l’avion et du train / Olivier Razemon, l’Interconnexion n’est plus assurée, 9/03/2019

Flexitaérien, néologisme assumé, désignera celui qui ne prend pas systématiquement l’avion, qui essaie de l’éviter, parce que l’avion, ça pollue, ça fait du bruit, et surtout ça émet énormément de CO2… lire
