Percentage of Urban Tree Cover in the European Capitals Mapped

Oslo, the capital of Norway, has the largest number of trees and may be considered the greenest capital in Europe. However, Oslo is known for its strong commitment to environmental sustainability and has implemented various initiatives to increase green spaces and promote a greener lifestyle.

Oslo had a comprehensive tree planting program and has set a goal to plant 100,000 new trees within the city by 2021. The city also has a focus on reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality, with plans to become carbon neutral by 2030. Oslo has invested in public transportation, pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, and has restricted car access in certain areas of the city center to reduce pollution and promote sustainable transportation.

Furthermore, Oslo has several large parks and recreational areas, such as the famous Vigeland Park and the nearby Nordmarka forest, which provide ample green spaces for its residents and visitors to enjoy. These efforts, among others, have earned Oslo recognition as an environmentally friendly city and a leader in sustainable urban development. However, it's important to note that rankings and designations for the "greenest" or "most environmentally friendly" city can vary depending on criteria and methodologies used by different sources.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
