????????TENTH ONLINE STRIKE FOR THE CLIMATE ????????
Circular economy.
The circular economy is defined as an economic system designed to be able to regenerate itself, thus also guaranteeing its eco-sustainability. According to the definition provided by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in a circular economy the flows of materials are of two types: biological ones, which can be reintegrated into the biosphere, and technical ones, destined to be re-evaluated without entering the biosphere. To understand the importance of the circular economy, we must first consider some of the problems that humanity is facing right now. One of the most significant problems of these years is surely the overheating of the atmosphere caused by the CO2 emitted mainly for the production of energy, for industrial activity and for transport. In particular, according to the latest IPCC study of October 2018, to avoid the increase in global temperature by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to the pre-industrial period (the maximum limit to avoid catastrophic effects on the global ecosystem) we have about 12 years reduce CO2 emissions of 50% and about 30 years to totally eliminate them. Otherwise, some of the effects that are already manifesting themselves at the moment will widen even more with a devastating impact of drought, fires and floods. These events have already caused $ 320 billion in damage in 2017. In addition, it is also necessary to talk about plastic and the damage caused by it. Only 15% of plastic is recycled worldwide (OECD 2018), 25% undergoes energy recovery and the remaining 60% ends up in landfills. The circular economy can help us in the process of saving our planet, let’s not pretend we have no choice!????????????
