Kurz zum Klima: Müllberge – eine Bedrohung nicht nur für unser Klima


  • Ariane Volk
  • Jana Lippelt



Rauchende Schornsteine, Waldrodung, extensive Viehwirtschaft: Dies sind Dinge, die unmittelbar für die globale Erwärmung verantwortlich gemacht werden. Aber auch der Müll, der in jedem Haushalt anfällt, hat direkte negative Effekte in Bezug auf das Klima. Eine Tonne Garten- und Küchenabfälle erzeugt z.B. bei einer offenen Zersetzung auf einer Mülldeponie fast 1,2 Tonnen CO2-äquivalentes Gas. Möglichkeiten, solche Emissionen einzusparen, sind das Recycling von Abfällen und die Energiegewinnung aus Müll.
