In yet another sign of the impact of climate change, Mount Everest is seeing twice the normal levels of rain and snowfall this summer.
North Korea, South Korea and Japan have been hotter than ever in recent weeks, just in time for a new report from NOAA telling us just how bad things are going to be in the future.
Climate change effects are “no longer subtle”, according to a prominent climate scientist, and this summer’s heat, drought, crop failures and fires could be the new normal.
A new University report shows that dicamba, one of the deadliest pesticides currently in use, has already drifted away from its intended lands and damaged 1.1 million acres of agricultural crops, trees and other plants just this year alone.
The city of Baltimore, Maryland, just filed suit against a long list of major oil and gas companies for the “potentially catastrophic” damage caused by the global climate crisis – very much the result of fossil fuel emissions.
For more than 15 years, the corrupt government of Costa Rica has been trying to have Captain Paul Watson arrested and imprisoned for stopping Costa Rican poachers in Guatemala in partnership with the Guatamalan government.
In the twenty years from 1992 to 2012, a region equivalent to the land in all of New York State – about 30 million acres of farmland – was lost to development. Worse was that fully one third of that land was considered among the best kind of land for crop production.
The Environmental Protection Agency, aka Environmental Pollution Agency (EPA) was directed in June 2018 to radically change how it determines the health and safety risks of toxic chemicals. Among other things, it will eliminate consideration of how chemicals disseminate over time into the land, throughout waterways and aquifers, and into the air.
Our planet continues to heat up and experience record setting high temperatures, just as it has noticeably done for much of the last few decades. Yet, only 73% can accept the fact that our planet is getting hotter, according to the National Surveys on Energy and the Environment.
Australian EV charging specialist Tritium has been chosen by the NRMA as the supplier for a new $10 million electric vehicle charger network roll out, currently under way in New South Wales and the ACT.
It has been thirty years since NASA scientist James Hansen spoke before a U.S. Senate Committee and warned us that global warming was real. Unfortunately for all, very few took his comments seriously enough.
On June 19, Donald Trump issued an executive order which effectively turns over yet another precious natural resource for big business to plunder. This time it’s America’s oceans, lakes and waterways which will feel the pain.
By January 1, 2020, the International Maritime Organization's new rules will force the sulfur content for “bunker” fuel used in shipping to cut from the current 3.5 percent to less than 0.5 percent. There are costs for this, however, as Canada is beginning to understand.
With many pollinating insects faced with extinction, the EU has finally stepped up and on June 1st passed a new initiative to address the problem.
A pesar que la vaquita marina se acerca a la extinción, el Centro de Patrimonio Mundial (CPM) de la UNESCO y la Unión Internacional para la Conservación de la Naturaleza (UICN) han recomendado posponer el estatus de patrimonio mundial “en peligro” a las Islas y Áreas Protegidas del Golfo de California. El retraso llega a pesar del fracaso del Presidente Enrique Peña Nieto de proteger a la vaquita.
According to a new study, the U.S. National Wildlife Refuges, originally set aside to protect living things in the wild, are being flooded with hundreds of thousands of pounds of toxic pesticides each year.
With 80 percent of the population living in urban areas and a vehicle fleet that is growing at the fastest rate in the world, Latin America has the conditions to begin the transition to electric mobility – but public policies are not, at least for now, up to the task.
Near the end of May, ten families and a youth group sued the European Parliament. The grounds: the EU has failed its obligation to protect them all from rising greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.
On April 23rd, CO2 levels at the Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii hit the highest average daily level so far for 2018 at 412.37 ppm, with a peak hourly level above 413 ppm.
Until humanity transitions from oil to other more sustainable forms of energy or our civilization collapses from the effects of runaway climate change, we will continue to need oil. But which oil we use is of critical importance. Some oil comes with much greater harm than others, and there is no oil source more damaging than Canada’s tar sands.
Like everything else related to global warming and climate change, at both ends of the globe, polar ice is melting far faster than officially predicted.
