    District heating prices go wild in Finland


    27 January 2016
    http://www.luke.fi/en/blogi/district-heating-prices-go-wild-in-finland/

    Building regulations in Finland promote local monopolies of district heating plants, which yield profits for few, while the consumers pay the price for the reductions of greenhouse gas emissions. Wild prices can stall change from conventional heating systems to district heating, or may even promote transfer to heating systems using fossil fuels. This would mean a drastic draw-back in mitigation of climate change.

    We have to keep up our efforts to tell the public about the secrets of soils. But how to do this like they do in nature films showing the life on African savannas or in the deep seas? Who could be the David Attenborough or Jacques Cousteau of soils?

    Xavier Irz: Should sugar be taxed in Finland?


    17 December 2015

    Fat and sugar taxes certainly have an intuitive appeal: due to the law of demand, which is known by economists to hold in all but very particular circumstances, as the price of an unhealthy product rises, quantity demanded falls and, all else constant, diet quality and health improve. As is often the case with food issues, however, this apparent simplicity may be misleading and there are, in fact, multiple ways by which well-intended taxes may be ineffective or even have negative unintended consequences.

    In Finland traditionally the Christmas tree was taken from the forest on Christmas Eve. Although this tradition is still very much alive, the Christmas tree has also become a substantial business. Every year about 1.2 million cultivated Christmas trees are sold in Finland, with a total value of approximately 45 million Euro. More than 80% of these cultivated trees are domestically grown.

    Therefore, issues concerning food and nutrition security should be on the top of the list for humanity to solve and provide innovative solutions to tackle this persistent dilemma. Smallholder family farmers can be part of the solution to global food and nutrition security.

    Green statistics will grow our knowledge about wellbeing

    The G20 summit in Turkey, organized on 15–16 November, 2015, focused on global economy, sustainable growth, development and climate change. In addition, the fight against terrorism dominated the discussions. Although these may look as separate agendas, they are all interlinked with the complex network of factors impacting our quality of life. In fact, an unsolved local crisis can extend to complex global crises, and monitoring of these global issues is based on contemporary statistics.

    Kaija Hakala: Baltic Sea was once clean, believe it or not


    04 November 2015
    http://www.luke.fi/en/blogi/kaija-hakala-baltic-sea-was-once-clean-believe-it-or-not/

    One day someone may tell me that the Baltic Sea has never been clean, and the underwater bladderwack forests that I saw in the 60’s in Archipelago of Turku, were never there. As if I didn’t swim in the clear water looking down on the thick growth fearing that a fish might emerge and bite me in the toe…Sometimes it would be healthy to believe in facts stated by the scientists. At least when they have worked for decades and proven unequivocally, that climate has warmed and will warm further if we don’t cut greenhouse gas emissions. How about believing it now and doing something before it is too late and no-one remembers what we had before we spoiled our beautiful planet?

    Françoise Martz: What damages tree roots in the winter?


    29 October 2015
    http://www.luke.fi/en/blogi/francoise-martz-what-damages-tree-roots-in-the-winter/

    Emissions of carbon dioxide from soil have increased in the last 50 years, without any clear explanation. No data are available about the climate change effect on CO2 concentration in soils. articular temporal or spatial conditions such as waterlogging or soil compaction can lead to high CO2 accumulation in soil. This kind of particular situation also appears in winter under the snow cover.
