As climate change thaws the Arctic permafrost, some of it is releasing sulphuric acid – which destroys limestone and releases even more climate-warming carbon dioxide

Corals devastated by climate change are being replaced naturally by other species such as gorgonians, which are less efficient in acting as a carbon sink. A study has analyzes for the first time why gorgonians are more resistant than corals to human impacts and global climate change.

Added: 20.09.2018 17:00 | 2 views | 0 comments

The is a pilot project designed to catch and redirect 30% of the projected extra coming due to climate change. Created by THIRD NATURE with and , the project will be inaugurated on a 50m pavement stretch at Nørrebro in . The first sidewalk was created as an innovative climate project that utilizes the to create a beautiful and adaptable cityscape. Aimed at densely populated cities, the tile handles water through a technical system that treats water as a valuable resource.

Glacial engineering could limit sea-level rise, if we get our emissions under control

Added: 20.09.2018 15:21 | 11 views | 0 comments

Targeted engineering projects to hold off glacier melting could slow down ice-sheet collapse and limit sea-level rise, according to a new study. While an intervention similar in size to existing large civil engineering projects could only have a 30 percent chance of success, a larger project would have better odds of holding off ice-sheet collapse. But the researchers caution that reducing emissions still remains key to stopping climate change and its dramatic effects.

| Climate change capitalism: the booming business of private firefighters

Added: 20.09.2018 10:00 | 18 views | 0 comments

Record-breaking US wildfires are fueling a cottage industry of boutique services – and many are happy to pay the price
With record-breaking wildfires carving up the American west this summer, firefighters have become the rarest of civil servants: the kind almost universally lauded as heroes. Reinforcements dropped into California’s firefight from as far away as Australia and American Samoa to bolster strained state and federal crews, reaching a high point of 14,000 firefighters on the ground.
Yet other crews have pulled into the fires’ path with a less grandiose purpose: to save only select addresses. These are the private firefighters of the rich or otherwise well-insured: private crews hired by insurance companies to minimize damages and keep policyholders’ homes from going up in smoke.

Needless to say the bills were high. It was just paid through Pure

Scientists say global warming is behind severe storms but many who face them don’t think humans are the problem
that human-induced climate change is responsible for an increase in the number and severity of storms – such as , which has the Carolinas in the last week.
But many who weathered the tempest, deep in , don’t believe global warming fueled it and don’t think humans are the problem – or the solution.

Mother Nature is its own entity. Whatever happens it’ll fix itself eventually

From crystals to climate: 'Gold standard' timeline links flood basalts to climate change

Added: 19.09.2018 19:49 | 18 views | 0 comments

Princeton geologists used tiny zircon crystals found in volcanic ash to rewrite the timeline for the eruptions of the Columbia River flood basalts, a series of massive lava flows that coincided with an ancient global warming period 16 million years ago.
