Fridays for Future Tea Light Action on 2020-12-11 in Klagenfurt Fridays for Future has also remembered in Klagenfurt, Austria with a tea ligth lettering on the New Square about the 1.5°C target (). The reduction commmitments of the Council of Europe do currently amount to -55% netto (which equals 50.5%-52.8% brutto) which is however still insufficient for the 1.5° target that required by now -80%. Netto means that you need to subtract the CO2 absorbation achieved by nature. That would already be too much for insular states and the coral reefs. China has commited to a reduction of 65% up to 2030 in comparison with the GDP.



ViewRSS: search for a regular expression

It is a new feature that you can search in the online RSS-viewer for messages containing a regular expression. That can be a singleton word, a choice between multiple words like ‘(atea|debcheckroot)’ or it can be several words separated by ‘.*’ that must then occur in the specified order. If you want to search for an entire word and not an expression, which can also equal the part of a word, you must add a space at the beginning and the end, like ‘ EU ’. There is no case sensitivity between upper and lower case. If you wanna use the regular expression special characters ‘^’ or ‘$’ for the beginning and end of a message then you must respectively follow or precede these special characters also by a space. It is sufficient that a regular expression is encountered in any of many translations of a message in order for all of these messages to be displayed.
