This website aims to help educate people on current environmental issues and the various ways people can help resolve the potentially catastrophic results of climate change.
Looking back at human history, we have all been meat eaters for thousands of years and it is something that is linked closely with our ancestry. However, as the planet now holds an unprecedented amount of us, approximately 8 billion, it does not have the capacity to hold that many daily meat eaters as DavidContinue reading “Eating meat can no longer sustain human life on Earth”
It is now well known that global warming as a result of climate change is leading to the loss of many coastal regions on our planet. Often, the people least involved with causing climate change are also the ones impacted by it the most. This has become apparent in places such as Jamaica, where beachesContinue reading “News: Jamaican beaches are degrading from climate change”
The increased warming of the planet since industrialisation began has caused many different changes to the planet’s characteristics. One visible and alarming change has been the melting of mountain glaciers which was first observed in 1850. Now there is widespread scientific research which shows that mountain glaciers are diminishing all around the world from theContinue reading “Mountain glaciers are melting at an irreversible rate”
Recent researchers have invented a way to make leather out of fungi. As we know, many consumer products are made using leather which has a big impact on the way we treat certain animals and the environment. However, this biofabricated material using fungi can help reduce our impact on certain animals and also supplement aContinue reading “News: Leather material made using fungi”
Currently, climate change is a major issue for humanity and one that cannot be solved easily. The words ‘climate change’ are somewhat natural when looking at the Earth’s history but presently represent a host of different issues which are all interlinked in some way. From deforestation, pollution, carbon emissions to overfishing, meat consumption and consumerismContinue reading “Why climate change is more of a concern now than ever before”
A press release published on the 12th October 2020 by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction has claimed that there has been a dramatic rise in climate disasters over the last 20 years. To summarise the report, it claimed that in the period between 1980 to 1999, 4,212 disasters occurred claiming approximately 1.19Continue reading “News: UN warn natural disasters caused by climate change are increasing”
Disclaimer: I am in no way sponsored or endorsed by any of these organisations, I am just trying to spread the awareness of information on climate change. Recent research on climate change taken from credible sources outline what current research is focused on. Some studies I have already written about in my previous posts soContinue reading “The forefront of climate change research”
A study in 2010 stated that the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) has naturally lost mass in response to warming and grown in response to cooling. It states that there have been no major documented ice-sheet changes that have occurred to date. However, a recent study released in September of 2020 recorded that the GIS isContinue reading “News: Greenland ice sheet currently melting at the fastest rate in 12,000 years”
David Attenborough’s new Netflix film, A Life on Our Planet, takes the viewer from the 1930s to present day, explaining how human technology and evolution has led to the overexploitation of the natural world. This film takes you from the end of the Holocene which consists of a balanced natural world and the ecosystems keepContinue reading “Life on our planet”
In 2014, many powerful leaders came together in New York to speak about the united climate action to tackle the growing global issues. Many voiced the opinion that it costs more to ignore the problem of climate change than to invest in solving the issues. It was also in the year of 2014 that theContinue reading “Why climate change is the best investment of the 21st century”
One of the biggest issues surrounding climate change is the abundance of harmful gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, and its contribution toward increasing global temperatures. As of this year, approximately 3 billion tons of carbon dioxide has been emitted into the atmosphere and with the normalised practices of modern day this numberContinue reading “News: Can hydrogen provide a solution to reducing carbon emissions?”
The current pandemic has claimed thousands of lives over the past six months and left many more with long-term injuries. However, the coronavirus is not unique, since the start of the 21st century there have been many other outbreaks of infectious diseases, such as Ebola, SARS, swine flu and zika – although none have managedContinue reading “How climate change plays a key role in the frequency of virus infections”
Since the invention of plastic it has revolutionised the way society operates. The many uses of plastic has grown to an enormous rate. However, one of the major drawbacks to plastic, which we have realised too late, is the large amount of damage it causes to our environment. For example, plastic is not only beingContinue reading “News: Study shows by 2030, 53 metric tons of waste could be polluting the environment each year”
Inspired by a recent YouTube video, which I shall link below, I went on a cycling trip to try and help clean up my community. I decided to load my bike with black rubbish bags and head off to see what I could find. Living in a city, seeing litter has become somewhat normalised toContinue reading “Contribution is key”
In the past decade frequent wildfires have damaged lives and wildlife in various countries. In part wildfires are natural, however with the increasing temperatures we are experiencing around the world demonstrate that the intensity of these wildfires are a result of climate change. Last year the wildfires in Australia are a clear example with approximatelyContinue reading “News: California wildfires”
Helping to improve the environment and improve upon the current climate crisis can often be felt as a daunting task. However, sometimes the small acts of kindness and commitment taken by others can be enough to make a large change in the right direction. Locally, there are many different organisations and events which aim toContinue reading “Community involvement – Grassroot Communities”
One of the most environmentally friendly ways to reduce the use of plastic is through biodegradable or compostable products. The distinguishing factor being that biodegradability consists of natural materials breaking down, whereas compostable items are a form of biodegradability that transforms organic waste which is more beneficial for the environment. In an effort to spreadContinue reading “10 alternatives to everyday plastic”
As mentioned previously in my earlier post, eating less meat can help to reduce CO2 emissions in the atmosphere in various ways. Analysts have found that meat production and distribution uses a considerable amount of water and contributes to the harmful gases currently in our atmoshpere. A recent study has been released demonstrating that switchingContinue reading “News: Plant based diet could remove 16 years of carbon emissions by 2050”
Many people today know that the climate changing so drastically is a bad thing but many still do not know why. As scientific research has shown, global warming is causing sea levels to rise, as a result increasing the chances of flooding. Another result of climate change is the unpredictable weather patterns which causes stormsContinue reading “10 ways to minimise climate change on a personal level”
