The start of COP27 in Egypt has renewed the world’s focus on climate change. Electric vehicles (EVs) are key in the global quest to decarbonise. In India, which also faces serious air pollution issues, the transition to EVs is critical. However, there is a China-size risk in the supply chain for electric vehicles. The recent sabre-rattling across the Taiwan Straits ought to be a warning for the world. Given India’s troubled relationship with China, the risk may be even more acute.

U.S. Retailer Publix’s First CO2 System Approaches Energy Parity with HFC Counterpart in a Warm Climate
A Publix store in central Florida using a transcritical CO2 (R744) system currently shows a 7% premium to reach energy parity with an HFC system, while stores further north in cooler climates show no difference or even energy savings from switching to CO2.
This analysis was presented by Doug Milu, Manager of the Refrigeration & Energy Program at Southeastern U.S. retailer Publix Super Markets, and Derek Gosselin, Director of Technical Product Support of U.S. OEM Hillphoenix, during the FMI (Food Industry Association) Energy and Store Development Conference in Orlando, Florida, on September 19–21.
Milu and Gosselin explained how Publix worked with Hillphoenix to develop an energy analysis tool to gauge how various measures are closing the parity gap between an HFC and CO2 system in a warm climate like Florida.

The growth in July has also been revised downwards, from the previously recorded 0.2% to 0.1%.
The Office for National Statistics released its latest reading on the UK’s performance as the government frets over the prospect of recession ahead, given the toll placed on demand by the cost of living crisis.
The result for August is worse than expected, as no growth rather than shrinking was anticipated.
It is likely that the contraction will result in a sharper period of slowdown in September.
Search begins for a new Chicago White Sox manager as Tony La Russa steps down after health issues make it ‘impossible’ to continue
The search is on for the next Chicago White Sox manager after Tony La Russa announced he won’t return for the 2023 season.
“It has become obvious that the length of the treatment and recovery process for this second health issue makes it impossible for me to be the White Sox manager in 2023,” La Russa said in a statement Monday. “The timing of this announcement now enables the front office to include filling the manager position with their other offseason priorities.
“I was hired to provide positive, difference-making leadership and support. Our record is proof. I did not do my job.”
La Russa read the statement, adding more thoughts throughout, before taking questions as Sox players watched from the back of the conference center at Guaranteed Rate Field.
“I’m upset that I let them down this year,” La Russa said of the players.
Odey Asset Management and a number of top funds committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions have invested in British fracking company IGas Energy, as they take advantage of the UK government’s decision to lift the ban on the controversial process.
London-based Odey, whose founder Crispin Odey has previously appeared to be sceptical of the extraction method blamed for increasing emissions, has been rapidly raising its stake in the AIM-quoted onshore oil and gas company with significant shale interests.
The hedge fund has increased its position in IGas since at least early August, from the less than 3 per cent disclosure threshold to just over 7 per cent by mid-September, according to filings. The stake is held in the Odey Special Situations fund, which is run by fund manager Adrian Courtenay.
