Hurricane Beryl Has Broken Records

Hurricane Beryl broke a startling record before making landfall in the Caribbean.

Here are some more details: Hurricane Beryl The Earliest Atlantic Category 5 On Record.  A quote:

“Hurricane Beryl became the earliest Atlantic Category 5 on record overnight following a historic Windward Islands landfall earlier Monday. It’s not done yet, with Beryl likely to spread its impacts across Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and the Yucatan Peninsula before facing an uncertain future in the Gulf of Mexico.

Current status: Beryl remains a Category 5 with maximum sustained winds of 165 mph over the eastern Caribbean Sea this morning and is moving west-northwest.

Beryl is the earliest hurricane to reach Category 5 strength on record in the Atlantic, and it beat the previous record by more than two weeks. The previous earliest Category 5 was Hurricane Emily on July 16 during the hyperactive 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. Record warm water temperature have likely catapulted Beryl’s intensity.”

Carbon Tax on Livestock Will Cost $100 Per Cow

In Denmark: World’s first carbon tax on livestock will cost farmers $100 per cow. A pericope:

“Dairy farmers in Denmark face having to pay an annual tax of 672 krone ($96) per cow for the planet-heating emissions they generate.

The country’s coalition government agreed this week to introduce the world’s first carbon emissions tax on agriculture. It will mean new levies on livestock starting in 2030.

Denmark is a major dairy and pork exporter, and agriculture is the country’s biggest source of emissions. The coalition agreement — which also entails investing 40 billion krone ($3.7 billion) in measures such as reforestation and establishing wetlands — is aimed at helping the country meet its climate goals.”
