News: Scientists urge UK PM to shorten net zero target

Scientists Warning Europe (SWE) have written a letter to UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, urging him to cut the carbon neutral target by 20 years to 2030. The letter was backed by 20 renowned scientists, involving people affiliated with UNFCC and the IPCC. Demonstrating that more is needed in these desperate times in order toContinue reading “News: Scientists urge UK PM to shorten net zero target”

News: Ice melting faster than climate models predict

A recent study has observed that: ‘Even within the most intensive future anthropogenic greenhouse gas emission scenarios, higher levels are assessed to be unlikely. However, some studies conclude that considerably greater sea level rise could be realized, and a number of experts assign a substantially higher likelihood of such a future’ Stating further how predictionsContinue reading “News: Ice melting faster than climate models predict”

News: 92% of glaciers in the Alps could be lost by 2100

In recent news, the University of Aberystwyth have conducted research funded by their Change project, reporting predictions based on the early signs of climate change. Using prediction models and climate data from 1901 to 2100, Aberystwyth University has found that eco-systems and water run off may be gone in the near future, as well asContinue reading “News: 92% of glaciers in the Alps could be lost by 2100”

Mountain glaciers are melting at an irreversible rate

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”

News: Leather material made using fungi

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”

Why climate change is more of a concern now than ever before

News: Greenland ice sheet currently melting at the fastest rate in 12,000 years

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”

Why climate change is the best investment of the 21st century

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”
