EU's binding nature restoration, satellite tracks CO2 emissions by facility
The weekends are usually quiet, and there's not much news being published. To make it easier on your inboxes, I prefer not to send out emails with scant content. Yesterday, for instance, we had only one article. In such cases, I will delay sending the newsletter and include the article in the next day's edition instead. Don't worry about missing something important — I will only do this if the news is not time-sensitive.
Today ChatGPT read 1055 top news stories. After removing previously covered events, there is 1 article with a significance score over 7 (plus 1 article from yesterday).

EU lawmakers and member states have agreed on a nature restoration law, requiring at least 20% of the EU's land and seas to be restored, with binding targets to restore 30% of degraded habitats by 2030, rising to 60% by 2040 and 90% by 2050. The law includes carveouts for farmers and an "emergency brake" if food production is threatened. The European Commission estimates a 8-38x return on investment for land restoration.
[7.1] New satellite will detect and share CO2 data from individual facilities — Reuters
Canadian company GHGSat launched the Vanguard satellite to detect carbon dioxide emissions from individual facilities like coal plants and steel mills from space.
