Denmark is a leader when it comes to fighting climate change. By 2050, the country plans to meet 100 percent of its energy needs with renewables, creating more jobs, increasing exports and reducing its energy dependence.
Denmark has lofty goals: By 2020, the country aims to produce 70 percent of its energy from renewable sources and to make the switch to renewables completely by mid-century.
“Today, we’re already at 43 percent,” said Kristoffer Böttzauw, the deputy director general of the Danish energy agency Energistyrelsen, which coordinates Denmark’s energy policy.
“At present, renewable energy sources account for about 25 percent of Denmark’s total energy consumption,” said Böttzauw. He’s convinced that the country’s goal to completely abandon coal, oil and gas by 2050 is realistic.
Tobias Austrup, an expert on renewables for Greenpeace, is looking for that same ambition from the German government and industry. Speaking with DW, he called…

The sheer volume of garbage in NYC is staggering. Surely not using many of these things is preferable to recycling or worse, garbage dumps. Let’s drink water from glasses, not plastic bottles and eliminate soft drinks completely. Radical? Not, really. People lived this way just in my life time.
What to Recycle
The confusion over what we can and cannot recycle continues to confound consumers. Plastics are especially troublesome, as different types of plastic require different processing to be reformulated and re-used as raw material. Some municipalities accept all types of plastic for recycling, while others only accept jugs, containers and bottles with certain numbers stamped on their bottoms.
- Empty and rinse all containers.
- Flatten cartons and boxes, and place them inside your cart.
- Secure shredded paper and textiles inside a clear plastic bag.
- Sorting Your Waste: WHAT GOES WHERE?
We start the day early and make the commute towards Yosemite. We stayed at Bug Mountain in Midpines, which is a hostel offering all sorts of different cabins. We opted for a semi-permanent tent, which is nestled into the side of the mountain. They have a natural spa and treatments on offer and a café/restaurant. Reasonably priced with a great selection to choose from, being mostly organic produce. The servings are huge and delicious. We had definitely stumbled upon a hidden gem!
It’s another early start and a 45-minute drive to the park entrance. We only had the day to explore and see as much as we could, so we drove around taking photos and then elected a to hike one of the mountain treks. Fairly unaware of what we were about to tackle, turns out we had chosen one of the harder treks in the park, Glacier…

Many of the employees working for one of the organizations that provide services for Yosemite also live in the park. Each summer, the ranks swell considerably, but there are many families who reside in the park year-round. You may wonder what it is like to live in Yosemite, and for many adults, the experience is dictated by a career choice. But what does that mean for family members? We asked 10-year-old Clara – who lives and attends school in Yosemite Valley – about her experience as a Yosemite resident and what kind of advice she would give to park visitors:
“My favorite things to do in Yosemite are explore the park and enjoy seeing Half Dome while I ice skate outdoors. If you are thinking of visiting the park for the first time, a beautiful and easy trail to hike is the Lower Yosemite Fall trail. It’s amazing to say…
