Fewer than 750 Mediterranean monk seals remain, making them among the world’s most endangered species. The vast majority inhabit Greek waters, with most located in a marine park near Alonissos in the Northern Sporades. What is left of the population elsewhere can be found mostly off the Atlantic coast of Mauritania in north-west Africa.

EXCLUSIVE: Biden mileage rule to exceed Obama climate goal

拜登完成簽署,取自AP News網頁

In a major step against climate change, President Joe Biden is proposing a return to aggressive Obama-era vehicle mileage standards over five years, according to industry and government officials briefed on the plan. He’s then aiming for even tougher anti-pollution rules after that to forcefully reduce greenhouse gas emissions and nudge 40% of U.S. drivers into electric vehicles by decade’s end.

mileage (n.) 里程數

exceed (v.) 超過

nudge (v.) 接近


作為對抗氣候變遷的一大步,拜登提議回到歐巴馬時期的油耗標準。他將提出更嚴密的抗汙染政策,在十年內降低溫室氣體排放量並達到有近40%駕駛改駕電動車的目標。
