Le pergélisol alpin continue de se réchauffer

La tendance au réchauffement du pergélisol alpin ne faiblit pas. C’est ce qui ressort des résultats les plus récents du réseau suisse de monitoring du pergélisol (PERMOS). Les températures très élevées du pergélisol sont la conséquence de conditions chaudes persistantes à la surface du sol. La formation tardive de la couverture neigeuse ces dernières années ainsi que le retard de la fonte des neiges en été 2016 n’ont que peu atténué cette tendance à long terme.

Il problema del depauperamento e dell’acidificazione dei suoli forestali

Un apporto elevato di inquinanti atmosferici azotati in ecosistemi come il bosco causa l’eutrofizzazione e l’acidificazione dei suoli. Il Consiglio federale è consapevole di questo problema e propone alcune contromisure. Il 15 febbraio 2017 ha approvato il rapporto «Opzioni volte a compensare l’acidificazione dei suoli forestali e a migliorare la situazione dei nutrienti nei boschi» in adempimento di un postulato del consigliere nazionale Erich von Siebenthal.

Gli insediamenti densificati e centrali generano costi minori

Gli insediamenti periferici e a bassa densità edificatoria comportano costi infrastrutturali e della mobilità pro capite più elevati rispetto agli insediamenti centrali e densificati. Tali costi non vengono coperti interamente da coloro che li generano, il che rappresenta un incentivo negativo. È quanto è emerso da uno studio appena pubblicato dall'Ufficio federale dello sviluppo territoriale (ARE).
