PODCAST: ネット通訳担当tensaimon 20: セメントの環境影響 Cement’s environmental effects



The Outline: Are we stuck with cement?


まとめ Summary:

Earlier this year, Sara Law of the Carbon Disclosure Project raised her hand at a conference in New York to discuss opportunities for investing in low-carbon infrastructure to address climate change.

2019年のclimate strike(気候マーチ)で世界中では600万人はエベントに参加したのに、日本で参加人数は僅かな6千人だけだったのはなぜでしょうか?と検討する記事を訳したりまとめたりしながら、少しコメントもさせていただきます。

まとめ Summary:

In late September 2019, an estimated 6 million people joined climate strikes across the globe, demanding urgent action to address the climate emergency facing our planet. Rallies in global metropolises such as London and New York saw hundreds of thousands take to the streets.

Climate Emergency Presentation Nodake 3ku 2020-02-28 UPDATE: CANCELLED

I talked to the head of the neighbourhood association and we decided to cancel this event to help contain the corona virus (many public events are now being cancelled) we’ll reschedule once things have calmed down…


I’ll be doing my next Climate Emergency presentation at my local neighborhood association, it’ll be in Japanese but please come if you can, the more people show up the bigger the impact, and the bigger the impact the greater the chances of it leading to real action.

Apocalypse Soon

[Follow-up comments, written the morning after my Nerd Nite presentation]:

Firstly I want to thank everyone who watched my presentation last night.
