Can’t say about Delhi, but Heat Sink is very real in Dhaka. The streets with trees are considerably (2-5C) cooler than the nearby ones without tree cover. Last year, I saw a heat map taken around midnight, and Dhaka was still Yellow while the rest of the country had turned blue.

Actually, we and all animals on earth live in a perfect state of symbiosis with them. We need the O2 they produce in order to live, while they need the CO2 all animals emanate (it’s not the only source for them, but still an important one) in order to grow and produce photosynthesis.

So yes, they are our friends, most definitely, but also much more than that. We are literally nothing without them.

Despite their anti net zero rhetoric, the Tories are not actually that far for the rest in terms of policy. Still the rhetoric is very dangerous, making change harder to achieve. I’m really relishing the prospect of the Tories not even being in opposition and a whole different political landscape emerging. :crossed_fingers:
