"The Earth isn't dying, it's being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses." Street art in Poland inspired by a quote attributed to singer/activist Utah Phillips. As fossil fuel users, we are all responsible for global warming, but there are some who profit off of intentionally blocking the transition to a low-carbon economy. These parties should be held legally (non-violently) responsible.
Poland's agriculture: A golden age for Polish farming? #Poland #farming #agriculture #EU #Europe #economy
Economy: Poland is aging rapidly. In 1950, the median age was 25.8: half of the Polish population was younger, half older. Today it is 38.2. If current trends continue, it will be 51 by 2050. As the population is aging, it has also started to decline mainly due to low birth rates and continued emigration which is impacting the economy. The number of children born in Polish families is one of the lowest in Eastern Europe.
Poland has the fastest growing economy in the European Union thanks to coal. With this success comes bad news that the country is very polluted because of the thermal power plants. How Poland adjusts to upcoming and ongoing EU policies to reduce greenhouse gas and fossil fuels will go a long way in determining how Poland's economy can successfully grow. I am hoping things continue in a positive way for the Polish people and the economy.
