More than 20,000 koalas died, hundreds of millions of animals died...For many living things in Australia, this is a disaster caused by fire. Since September 2019, forest fires in southeastern Australia have been raging all over the country, burning for four months.More than six million hectares have been destroyed by wildfires in new south wales and Victoria so far, equivalent to 60 times the size of California's blazes last year and more than seven times the size of Brazil's amazon fires.This has affected many homes, roads and animals. Ecologists estimate that 500 million birds, mammals and reptiles have died in new south wales, the state worst affected by the fires.As a unique animal in Australia, koalas are suffering from disasters.About 50,000 koalas on kangaroo island, Australia's third largest island, have died at least half of their lives and suffered severe burns, local media said.Local officials say about 30 percent of Australia's koalas have died in the fires. Although Australia's wildfires are periodic, it has been difficult to pinpoint how they started.Its official line is that the fires are not caused by global warming or by other causes, such as carelessly discarded cigarettes, lightning strikes or arson.But climate change is exacerbating the fires. Australia experienced its warmest year on record in 2019.A lack of rain, drought and low soil moisture have all helped fuel the fires, which in recent months have experienced high temperatures and high winds that have resulted in the worst fires in Australia's history.In response to the drought, local environmental authorities are reportedly sending helicopters on January 8 to kill about 10,000 camels because they drank too much water. Kangaroo island, the worst affected area, is Australia's most important ecological habitat, with countless rare animals in its six conservation parks.The kangaroo island fire started on December 20, 2019, and by January 4, 2020, has burned 170,000 hectares, or one-third of the island's total area.And the koala dead injury situation, is more worrying. The island's koalas are Australia's only large population of immunochlamydia koalas, strong and resistant to disease, known as the "koala gene pool" and "future of the species."However, the fire threatened to make this species (not all koalas) functionally extinct.In addition, the only 300 long-tailed, narrow-footed shrews left on the island are likely to have been burned to death.Extinct on the Australian mainland but protected and repopulated on the island, the cockatoo may also have been wiped out by fire. Australia's wildfires are not only damaging itself, they are also having a knock-on effect on the global climate, exacerbating global warming.Preliminary statistics show that in just a few months from November 2019 to now, the Australian fires have released an estimated 350 million tons of carbon dioxide into the air.Climate experts believe it could take a century or more to absorb the carbon dioxide released by forest fires. In addition, Australia's forest fire pollution has also affected other countries.On January 6, according to the national meteorological observatory of Chile, the smoke generated by the Australian wildfires drifted over 11,000 kilometers along with the air over the Pacific Ocean, reaching the coast of Chile on January 4 and gradually moving towards the south.And the smoke has spread out into the ocean and even reached the Franz josef glacier in New Zealand, where on January 1 its snow-capped summit was caramelized. No one is an island, and this fire in Australia is the best example of that.The great Australian fire is not only a disaster for Australia, but also for the world;The world's climate change has also exacerbated the scale of the fires, which in turn have exacerbated the warming, reinforcing each other and creating a vicious cycle.While Australia's biological resources have been decimated by the fire, the world's natural resources will inevitably suffer irreparable losses. Therefore, it is better to take actions to protect the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution, which is also to protect ourselves.
For a lot of people, cutlery is just a very common but everyday things, but the cutlery of the child and daily necessities can be the important thing that raises child aesthetic feeling since childhood, it is the thing that parents need to see everyday in life, often use more. Have you noticed?Normally, a group of plastic/PLA/myrmidine (bone China) tableware has a lifespan of about three months. Due to the easy release of toxins after three months of use with scratches, tableware can cost nearly 200 yuan or more after two years. Bamboo fiber cutlery is made from natural materials and can be used for many years.Here's why it's so important to choose a good set of children's cutlery: Understanding bamboo fiber is good for children and the environment Did you know that bamboo is the fastest growing herb on earth?A third faster than the average tree, some species can grow up to 30 centimeters in a day. The biggest advantage of bamboo fiber is that it contains bacteria-inhibiting substances, with natural and long-lasting antibacterial properties, and can achieve natural decomposition in the natural environment, without causing secondary pollution to the earth. Common children's tableware on the market mostly USES pp plastic, dense amine (bone China) make, why should choose bamboo fiber?Compared to these common materials, what is the advantage of bamboo fiber? First, from the perspective of food safety, melamine (bone China) will start to release melamine when the temperature exceeds 30-40 degrees.However, the common PP also produces harmful plasticizers in the medium and high temperature of about 60 degrees. The former can cause liver and kidney diseases, while the latter can cause hormone disorders in infants and pregnant women.Greatly increase the possibility of sexual development malformation. Design more human, safer Easy to clean and easy to heat Unlike the bamboo cutlery made of plastic or chemical substances, the all-natural brand bamboo fiber cutlery is the most heat-resistant children's cutlery on the market at present, which can withstand the high temperature of 100 degrees Celsius and is more durable. How to distinguish intelligently "natural bamboo fiber" the true and false of children tableware? The market is full of many children's tableware that advertise all natural materials. Please note that there are many "natural materials tableware" that can add PP plastic or melamine (bone China). The simplest way to tell the difference is as follows: 1. Are the ingredients carefully labeled on the package?If not, there's a good chance there's a problem. Ecorpor is made of bamboo fiber powder, plant starch and natural resin. 2. Pick up very light, not heat resistant (within 90 degrees) fiber tableware has a high probability of adding PP plastic, in short, it is still plastic, or can not be decomposed, or plasticizer doubt. Ecorpor can withstand up to 100 degrees, the quality is solid, let you spend every penny is worth, is the market heat resistant natural children's cutlery. 3. Does the manufacturer provide a complete inspection report? Ecorpor has SGS, FDA certification, the best intentions to present.
At this year's UN climate summit, sunnyberg was all eyes, wearing a red suit and a pigtail.She spoke for four minutes, and the angry, slightly blubbering "how dare you" became her trademark."We will not let you pass the buck. We are drawing a red line here. The world is waking up. But the leaders of the United States, Germany, France, Russia and others gave little positive feedback on the impassioned remarks.German chancellor Angela merkel said she was impressed by sandberg's speech and met her, but criticized him for failing to mention modern technologies and innovations that might address climate change.French President Emmanuel macron was less conciliatory, saying: "those extreme positions are the source of hostility in our society...What we need is a young person who can help us put pressure on the people and things that stand in the way of environmental policies and can make concrete actions." Russia even expressed concern about sandberg's psychology.Russian President's press secretary dmitry peskov responded on Thursday by saying he was concerned about the mental burden of sandburg."It may be necessary to explain to this little girl that many countries do many things...Some tangible steps are being taken." "She looks like a happy girl, looking forward to a bright future, looks great," US President Donald trump said of sandberg on twitter.According to us media, trump is making ironic remarks. At the United Nations general assembly, sandberg had another chance encounter with trump.Sandberg's glare as trump walked past her was captured by the media and made into a "stare" meme. A global strike was called Why isn't there widespread support for a girl who calls for global attention to climate change?It starts with her experience. Sandberg was born in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2003 to an actor father and an opera singer mother. Sandberg first learned about climate change when she was 8 years old, and she wondered why so little was being done about it.Over the next three years, she developed asperger's syndrome, an autism-like condition, obsessive-compulsive disorder and selective mutism, which sandberg linked to her inability to tackle climate change. To promote her idea, sandberg started at home, advising her parents to go vegetarian and not fly to reduce their carbon footprint, which means the mother of an opera singer may have to give up her international career.Sandberg's parents ultimately chose to support her approach, which gave her confidence and hope. What really brought sandberg to the world's attention was her massive school strike last year.Since last August, sandberg has been staging a sit-in outside Sweden's parliament every Friday to try to get the government to take action on climate change.Her father didn't really like his daughter's strike, but he said: "we respect her choice to either be unhappy at home or happy to protest."Ms. Sandberg's teachers were also divided about her approach."Personally, they think I did the right thing;But as a teacher, they said I shouldn't be absent.""Sandberg said. On March 15, millions of students in more than 300 cities in more than 120 countries took part in a strike against climate change.From Sweden, Norway and Germany in Europe to the Philippines, Thailand and Japan in Asia, students took to the streets with placards demanding government action on climate change."We're facing the greatest existential crisis in human history, and it's been ignored," sandberg, the campaign's "leader," told the crowd.Those of you who ignore it know it." She represents a determination Sandberg decided last year to take a year off from school and use the time to travel the americas to call for action on climate change.In December and January, she took the podium at the UN climate change conference and the world economic forum in davos, Switzerland, to spread her environmental message on the international stage. On social media, sandberg also played a leading role.She has more than 200,000 followers on twitter, where she regularly urges people to join the fight against climate change."Climate change leaders don't just talk, they act. Join us!December 4th, climate change strike, get the word out!""She tweeted last year. However, the Internet is split between love and hate for what sandberg has done on climate change.Supporters see her as a "hero" and a "future leader" who has raised awareness among the world's youth about climate change.Opponents say her demands are too radical and too simple, and that she sets a bad example by calling for a student strike. Last month, sandberg took a zero-carbon voyage from Britain on a sailboat powered by solar and turbine engines to New York for the United Nations climate summit.But to retrieve the ship, two foreign crew members were required to fly to the United States to sail it back to Europe, according to reports, without reducing carbon emissions at all. Climate change is a big and complex problem, and the international community has come up with a number of mechanisms over the years to address it.In this context, the plain-speaking, even dismissive, sandberg does get more attention, and some results.But she is still only a 16-year-old with limited experience and a world view, and it is unrealistic to expect her to lead a solution to something that scientists and policy makers around the world cannot agree on. Perhaps the best explanation for all the controversy surrounding Mr Sandberg is a review by the New York times: "people are tired of being holistic and balanced.
Commonly used cup material is very much, and the cup that takes silica gel as an example has tableware to be few again, it is a kind of originality daily necessities, also be the choice of a lot of young people at present, no matter be household daily or outdoor use, it calculates to go up is a gratificatory daily necessities! Travel to environmental protection, since the national advocate low carbon life, most people in China for life and travel choice low carbon products, silicone products, for example is one of the more environmental protection type of colloid articles for daily use at present, at present a lot of things in life we choose replace with silica gel material, such as living kitchen utensils and appliances, daily necessities and glass products, etc., and articles for daily use "silicone cup" has become the present day life which are frequently used in life, its advantages and characteristics you know? Silica glass is the main characteristic of environmental security, and has good resistance to fall effect, sense is very good, the second is that product effect of both material and it is always let a person possess oneself of, it is main food grade pure silicone rubber fixed-line and to achieve good fixed-line soft rubber material, feel comfortable, rebound strong, and can be printed on the surface appearance and radium carved different images and text, is resistant to its strengths, even though you put it falling from the plane, it will not be broken. Its simple processing technology, the product cost is low, usually the silicone cup factory production and processing a cup has the highest cost in a few yuan, within a specific need to look at it and the shape of the product and the weight of the request, but the product price estimate alone will be a little high, it mainly mold molding and injection molding, molding is the process will be mixed in good rubber is put in the mold of about 180 degrees high temperature curing molding, injection molding is the liquid silicone injection mold cavity in the high temperature molding raw materials, the difference is not big! Silicone rubber cup is one of the essential kettles at many outdoor travel, because of its softness can be arbitrary twists and turns into other shapes to receive is the best choice, so folding long twists and turns out of shape not easily, and silicone material can be resistant to high and low temperature for a long time, use it to install ling hot water does not have any effect, easy to clean, easy to carry. Characteristics of silica gel water cup: 1. The raw material of the cup is environment-friendly gas-phase silica gel. The food silica gel is an inorganic polymer colloidal material made of polycondensation of silicic acid, the main component of which is mSiO2nH2O.The chemical stability is good, except in caustic and hydrofluoric acid these two extremely special cases do not react with any acid base.It is often used for baby pacifier, silica gel bottle and other products with high safety requirements.Non-toxic and odorless: silica and water, safe and stable. 2. High temperature resistance and low temperature resistance: the temperature resistance range of silica gel raw materials is -40℃-220℃, which is far higher than that of plastic products for food, and cannot be dissolved at more than 100℃.The process is safe to use, even when charred, it will only decompose into silica white fog and white smoke, non-toxic and harmless. 3, aging resistance, fadeless: oxidation decomposition temperature far more than similar plastic supplies.It is colorfast and has a service life of up to 10 years. 4, easy to clean, oil resistance, no seepage, can be washed in the dishwasher, easy to use, is a housewife's good helper. Soft, non - slip, feel good, like baby's skin, warm and considerate.Material selection, processing process, quality control: material selection is strictly in accordance with food grade silica gel FDA standards.
When the baby can hold the cup with both hands, he can start to learn to drink by himself.Learn to drink cup is the baby to drink the first step, a good learn to drink cup should be made of safe, anti - fall, water - tight, easy to suck, but with the development of new technology, learn to drink cup can be more and more selective, there are some small details to pay attention to. 1. Material Give priority to safety when buying baby products.At present, there are 5 kinds of materials used in the market.Do you know which material is best for babies?What kind of material is healthy and safe is nontoxic?Park chose safety, transparency, ease of cleaning, wear resistance, high temperature resistance and cost performance to evaluate these 6 factors. Let's take a look at the performance of these materials 2.Cup mouth and suction mouth There are two types of beaks: duck beaks and straw beaks Straws are divided into straight - through, one - shaped, cross - shaped, V - shaped.How are the four types different?Which one is more suitable for baby?Let park cargo to reveal secrets to treasure parents! Straight through type: also known as all through type, easy to absorb water, but also easy to choke water, water leakage and water spraying. 3.Straw The straw is mainly divided into straight drink type and gravity ball two types of straw, silica gel material based, safe non-toxic, no BPA, not easy to scratch the baby's mouth. Straight drinking straw: the drinking posture is fixed, it is difficult to drink water lying down.For straight drinking sippy cups, turn the handle to help your baby drink when the bottom water is not available.(but only some brands of learning cups support handle rotation) Gravity ball straw: as the name implies, the bottom of the straw is connected to a small ball with a little weight. Under the action of gravity, it will move with the straw and the liquid in the cup in the same direction, always staying below the water surface.Regardless of the water level, regardless of the baby sitting, standing can be free to drink 360 degrees, do not need the baby to turn the glass for water to drink, mothers no longer need to worry about too little water baby can not drink. Here, the gravity ball straw is recommended. With the gravity ball, the baby can drink water even when holding the cup with his head raised.Especially suitable for those active, naughty children often make sprinkler site, let mother bad, and this kind of gravity ball design can very good put an end to this phenomenon.However, it is recommended for children over one year old to use gravity ball straw cups, but not for younger children. 4.Lid The lid will help protect the rim from splashes and leaks.The role of the lid, one is to prevent leakage, two is anti - fouling.There are three types of LIDS on the market: split LIDS, snap LIDS and slide LIDS. Split lid: easy to lose after opening Snap lid: easy to open and close, avoid the problem of lid falling off and breaking when the cup falls, and avoid the danger of small and broken parts, such as scratching baby, swallowing suffocation and so on. Sliding lid: easy to open and close, but easy to open and dirty the suction nozzle because of shaking friction in the bag Through the comparison of three kinds of cup lid, the clasp cup lid is more suitable for babies, completely can prevent shaking friction and open, durable and leak-proof! 5. The calibration The scale of the learning cup can help you know how many milliliters of water your baby is drinking.Therefore, the scale should be clear, not easy to wear, to avoid affecting the mother of the baby's water consumption. 6.The handle Learn to drink cup some have a handle, some do not, have a handle can facilitate the baby to hold, training baby finger flexibility, park huo jun more recommend everyone to buy a handle of learn to drink cup. At present, the handle of the learning drink cup on the market mainly consists of the following three styles. Only the handle in figure 2 is made of dental glue, which can be twisted into any shape to meet the needs of children in the period of mouth desire to bite and grind teeth, soft and comfortable to grasp.But I still advise the baby not to buy this type, after all, health is the main. 7. Clean accessories Baby drinking cup can be thoroughly cleaned is a must, and the premise of thorough cleaning is must be convenient and thoroughly disassemble + small gaps are touched to!Need to explain is, after disassembly small gap had better not much, the straw had better be able to segment open, just good clean. 8.modelling design Bright color, cute shape of the learning cup can arouse the baby's interest in drinking water, promote the baby to learn to drink water.
The first objection is that any answer based on "personal experience" either doesn't know what silica gel is or doesn't know what irrelevant answer is.Back to the topic, I personally think that silicone tableware is not popular in China because of people's misunderstanding of the safety of silicone. Let's begin by discussing some of the characteristics of silicone cutlery and kitchenware under the premise of safe production Silicone Rubber, whose full name is Silicone resin, is a kind of polymer composed of silicon, carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and other elements. There are many components in the actual industrial production process, and Silicone products we come into contact with usually contain some filler to improve the chemical properties or reduce the cost.The silica gel in the following refers to the silica gel products, with the silica gel kitchen utensils that will come into contact with high temperature as the main object of discussion.Of course, I think the other people who answered the question are concerned about the bad silicone cookware made by profiteers. I totally agree with that. If you can find a reliable brand, you can read on. Silica gel is widely used in industry, such as electrical, medical equipment, clothing, kitchen utensils and so on.Silica gel is flexible, water-resistant, and resistant to adhesion. It maintains chemical stability even at extreme temperatures.These chemicals make silicone ideal for baking equipment such as spatulas, sealed storage containers, and baking MATS.The safety temperature of silica gel is generally between −55 and 300 °C (°C) . Studies have shown that silica gel has a melting point of 932°F (500°C) and a maximum sustainable temperature of 675°F (357°C).That is to say, at 357°C, silicone cookware can remain stable indefinitely .  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silicone_rubber Barber, Nelson, et al. "Silicone bakeware: does it deliver a better product?"Journal of Food Service 18.1 (2007): 43-51. Even at the conservatively estimated maximum safe temperature of 300 degrees, is this temperature a concept? The smoke point of refined oil is generally between 200 and 240 degrees Celsius, and pressed oils such as virgin olive oil do not exceed 190 degrees.If the silicone spatula melts in the pot, the oil is already warmer than the safe temperature for cooking oil, and more than the safe temperature (about 260 degrees) for the popular teflon nonstick skillet. The following figure is from the definition of our somatosensific oil temperature of baidu baike. Even if it is ten percent hot, the hot oil with smoke is only 250 degrees. In such an environment, silica gel is completely safe. Generally non-stick pan is made of aluminum, the surface has a non-stick coating.Aluminum conducts heat quickly (237 W/mK, 3 times as fast as iron), and the inner (or even outer) walls are actually no hotter than the oil inside the pan. On the principle of boiling water in a paper pan of eighth-grade physics, heat is quickly transferred to the oil inside the pan.Since the non-stick coating can be used safely, the contact non-stick coating silicone shovel temperature will not exceed the temperature of the coating surface, more can be used safely. Of course, in the case of dry roasting or roasting in a cast-iron pan, the temperature is likely to be higher than 300 degrees Celsius.At this point, not only the silicone shovel will deteriorate, the non-stick coating will also deteriorate and release toxic gas.The usage method that I recommend is, silica gel cookware cooperates only nonstick pan and oven are used, and should pay attention to use habit more, if oneself carelessly burn dry pan, do not let silica gel back pan.When using uncoated POTS, try to use a steel or wood spatula that can withstand higher temperatures. Secondly, the safety of food processing lies not only in a silica gel kitchen utensils, but also in your understanding of all the tools in fact when using non-stick pan, silica gel spatula is actually the most protective surface tens of microns of non-stick coating.And non-stick pan non-stick characteristics are also very suitable for soft surface texture of the silicone spatula.Many silicone spatulas have an iron core inside, which is not particularly draining.In addition to metal spatulas, bamboo spatulas can also cause a lot of damage to the surface of the coating, wood is slightly better.The wear of the coating is a vicious circle, the wear of the coating does not stick to the effect of poor, which forces us to poke the pot harder, wear more coating.Here to remind you that the non-stick pan is consumable, damaged in time to replace. In terms of hygiene, silicone is also more sanitary than bamboo wood products.Its water and oil repellency makes it very easy to clean, and silicone products can go into the dishwasher.Speaking of which, I find that many of the respondents can't tell the difference between silicone, nylon, and even other plastics.Joseph's kitchen utensils, for example, ranked no. 1, and another spatula that said it "soaps on the surface of oil" were clearly nylon.Nylon cooking utensils are really not suitable for Chinese cooking, as the heat resistance is just over 200 degrees Celsius. This kind of example tells us at one time, must know oneself tableware kitchen utensils and pans to have specific characteristic.Specific safety temperature is subject to the manufacturer's standard column, read all instructions carefully!All nylon spatulas must mark the maximum temperature of the spatulas, and all non-stick pans are advised against spatulas.Finally, to return to the question, I do not agree to attribute the popularity of silicone tableware in China to the differences between Chinese and foreign cooking techniques. The popularity of silicone cookware is partly due to people's misunderstanding of this material, but also partly due to Chinese cooking or traditional habits of Chinese families.However, I don't think silicone is only suitable for western food, not Chinese cooking needs. The second kind of power is higher, and the specific heat capacity of the surface glass is very large, or can ensure the temperature of the meat dishes in the pot.The third kind is basically the same as in China, and there is no temperature problem.In addition, the influence of the pot on the heat is also very big, because the volume of the common cast iron pot in foreign countries is large, the storage of heat is also large, in the stir-fry dishes before reaching a certain temperature, you can ensure that after not "cook" dishes.So in a foreign environment, want to do Chinese food as long as the selection of good kitchen utensils, can do very comfortable.
