Why do cafes in Zagreb serve drinks without ice?

first_imgDespite the still great heat, some cafes in Zagreb have been serving ice-free drinks these days.Along with the drink, they only got a straw with the inscription “Wondering why there is no ice? It would be more cool if you would do something about global warming. ” The message is a new campaign by WWF, one of the world’s largest and most reputable independent nature conservation organizations, with which they shared a few simple tips on how each of us can reduce climate change on a daily basis.The guests of the cafe could get ice only if they shared a photo of their drink and a message via social networks and thus spread the information to their friends. To begin with, Brewbites Zagreb joined the action, and the action was designed by the team of the Bruketa & Žinić OM agency. “Climate change is a big problem today, and if we don’t do something, an even bigger problem will be tomorrow. With this, we are conducting an action to make people aware of how each of us can help. Don’t just sit back and watch the ice melt! “, They say from WWF Adria.No matter how hard WWF and other environmental activists, as well as various scientists, try, the impression is that citizens are indifferent and look at climate change as a myth. Of course, such an opinion is greatly influenced by various lobbies and media, but again it is up to each individual to be informed and educated, especially when we talk about the future of the Earth, if not for us, then for our children.Responsible and sustainable tourism is the only direction and the very essence of tourism, because if it is the opposite, the destination and resources are destroyed, and so is tourism. you know the famous one: Don’t cut the branch you’re sitting on. Of course, as climate change globally, it directly affects the entire Earth, including tourism. More droughts lead to the collapse of agriculture and a greater burden on the entire infrastructure network, and vice versa when we have more rainfall, rising sea levels, major storms, changing sea temperatures that change the entire Adriatic ecosystem, which unfortunately happens a bit with the arrival of invasive species enemies etc…Do you think that this year’s storms, especially the number of them in a short time, which affected Istria are normal and average? Droughts in Slavonia too? The emergence and spread of invasive species, ie predators in Istria this year due to the warming of the Adriatic, which destroyed the Black Sea fishery, is it accidental? Will the arrival of tropical shark species, if sea warming continues, which are dangerous to humans affect tourism?We have to prepare, says Vjeran Piršić, president of the Eco Kvarner association, agriculture and tourism will not be the same in 20 years. “We can imagine that with rising sea levels, with higher extremes, more rainfall causing rainfall and flooding in our coastal areas, there are longer dry periods – it will not be possible to have agriculture and tourism in the way known so far. It remains to be seen what can be done locally to prevent the possible consequences of climate change” said Piršić in the announcement of a series of lectures: Why do we think that already started climate change is threatening the collapse of the economy in Croatia ?. You can watch the lecture from Pula here, or you can still stick to the status quo and pretend that everything is fine and that climate change is a myth.Climate change is an event, both globally and in Croatia, but unfortunately we do not want to see it. Man is the main culprit, so man can fix things for the better or at least prepare and mitigate the consequences, of course if it is not too late.Related news: VJERAN PIRŠIĆ, ECO KVARNER: THE FUTURE OF CROATIAN TOURISM LIES IN SUSTAINABLE TOURISM WHERE NATURAL RESOURCES, BUT ALSO NATURAL OPPORTUNITIES OF A CERTAIN ENVIRONMENT WOULD BE RESPECTED IN THE FIRST RIGHTlast_img read more

MADELEINE McCANN MAY STILL BE ALIVE, SAYS DETECTIVE AS 20 SUSPECTS IDENTIFIED

first_imgMadeleine in Donegal, pictured second from left in 2007British police have identified up to 20 potential suspects in their hunt for missing Madeleine McCann, a top detective has said, insisting that there is still a hope she is alive.Madeleine has many relatives throughout Co Donegal, her father Gerry’s family are from the county. Gerry and Kate spent some time on holidays in Dungloe a few months ago, visiting cousins and friends. The missing girl visited her Donegal relatives just three weeks before her disappearance in Portugal.Maddie went missing on May 3 in Praia da Luz in 2007 during a family holiday. She would now be 10 and her parents insist the search for her is very much ongoing as police continue a review.In a statement Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell said: “The purpose of the review was to look at the case with fresh eyes and there is always real benefit in doing so.“The review has further identified both investigative and forensic opportunities to support the Portuguese. “There is more than a handful of people of interest which could be explored further if only to be eliminated.“The key things are to investigate the case and our work is happening to support the Portuguese.”He told London Evening Standard that the Met squad had done a “fantastic” job in identifying “further investigative and forensic opportunities.”“We have to ask ourselves why are cases unsolved and, on many occasions, we find we passed the suspects by already and the suspect sits within our system,” he said.The detective also said Madeleine could still be alive, adding: “You cannot exclude it.”He said: “You only have to look at the case in Cleveland, Ohio, and the European cases. Of course there is a possibility she is alive. “But the key is to investigate the case and, alive or dead, we should be able to try and discern what happened.”The McCanns, who live in Leicestershire, have been kept closely informed of Scotland Yard’s review, codenamed Operation Grange, over the past two years.A spokesman for the couple said: “They have been encouraged from the moment the review started and are now greatly encouraged that police have drawn up a short list of people who they believe are of interest to the inquiry.”MADELEINE McCANN MAY STILL BE ALIVE, SAYS DETECTIVE AS 20 SUSPECTS IDENTIFIED was last modified: May 18th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:MADELEINE McCANN MAY STILL BE ALIVESAYS DETECTIVE AS 20 SUSPECTS IDENTIFIEDlast_img read more
