Where Hoteliers Feel Most Threatened by Climate Change

In the 2024 edition of the European Accommodation Barometer, the study has revealed that 41% of European hoteliers believe that climate change will have a high or very high impact on their business in the next 3 years

@Snoro This is a bit misleading. Impact does not equal threat. For example, the Netherlands has been experiencing unusually hot summers consistently for some time now, which I'm sure has had a positive impact on the hotel business. So it's quite possible that Dutch hoteliers don't consider climate change a threat, but a benefit.

This is of course separate from the question whether climate change is a threat generally (it is) and whether hoteliers see it as such (they probably do).

How is European defense showing up in the campaigns and policy debates of the European Parliament elections where you live?

@Loukas@mastodon.nu avatar

@osma in Sweden not at all, apart from talk about borders (which is purely framed in terms of stopping migration).

In Finland, defense isn't a topic that would divide the parties. We have the long russia border (which remains closed for traffic) and NATO membership is in effect. There are some minor opinion differences of how to get EU to contribute to outer border defense and exactly how to enforce the border closure while following asylum treaties, but EU border security and defense are in the themes of every party - anything else would alienate voters.

Europe unprepared for climate disaster, warns World Bank

Climate-related disasters cost Europe more than €77 billion last year, according to a new report. But costs can be lowered with better data and financing

There’s one crucial point on which the will still keep the faith with : . Just like ’s right-wing Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, the Netherlands’ new far-right government will stick with Ukraine. The incoming government will support Kyiv, truly, deeply and constantly. As I have previously written, paying obeisance at the western world’s newest shrine, Kyiv, appears to have become a purity test of sorts. https://www.rashmee.com/dutch-far-right-geert-wilders-ukraine/

Almost 30 years ago, a revolutionary idea changed the way #Europe regarded road collisions. It has probably saved countless lives but it's yet to be fully accepted by politicians.

#Europe hit by severe #floods in the north and heatwaves in the south

"Heavy rainfall and storms wreak havoc across northern Italy, France and Germany, whilst southern Italy endures an unseasonal #heatwave.

Milan recorded an unprecedented 130mm of rain in a single day, resulting in flash floods not seen in over 170 years."

@CelloMomOnCars Things seem to be unraveling everywhere. The Washington Post yesterday was dominated by climate related issues. Things are not getting better, people.

That's a good sign though: FINALLY the mainstream news outlets are giving climate change the attention it needs.

Now to connect that to what Biden is proposing, and what Trump is proposing. I haven't seen too much of that in the news yet, so it's DIY climate communication in this election year.

Waiting for [#JUICE ...] NASA's #Juno probe recently took images of the surface of #Europe, an icy moon of #Jupiter. And what a surprise! The #ice crust has shifted, distorted, ...

So what happened? Are these changes the result of interactions with the vast oceanic area lying beneath Europa's surface?

More news in 2031, when ESA's #JUICE probe, launched on April 14, 2023, (finally!) reaches the #Jupiter system : https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/nasas-juno-provides-high-definition-views-of-europas-icy-shell

It was brought to my attention that today is and that the European communication people are asking us to use the hashtag I used here.

https://european-union.europa.eu/principles-countries-history/symbols/europe-day_en

I bet there will not be that much mention of that tag on the Big Tech platforms. Shall we make that tag a bit bigger here?

NEW EPISODE: This week on the podcast, we're delving into our weird obsession with the Nutri-Score food labels used in 8 European countries.

Why might chamomile tea get a C rating when a diet cola gets an A? And does Giorgia Meloni have a point in claiming the ratings are biased against Italians?

We're also talking about Georgia's protests and a scary moment in German politics.

Hey Mastodon, what are your favourite Europe-related accounts to follow? National/European politics, culture, tech, sport, science, etc.

After initially feeling very hopeful that this site could be a great home for us post-Twitter, the conversation has rather dried up over here (for us, at least!) so we’d love to find some new people to follow!

Who is #Xi Jinping’s travel agent? If you are making your first trip to #Europe in nearly five years, an itinerary that reads #France, #Serbia, #Hungary seems a little eccentric.

But the three stops chosen by #China’s leader make perfect sense viewed from #Beijing. For strategic and economic reasons, China badly wants to disrupt the unity of both #Nato and the #EU.
