13 am Recent The effects on remote forests lands and lakes are largely unknown Schindler said An increasing body of evidence however shows that the biological composition of microscopic communities in Arctic lakes changed with the arrival of human derived nitrogen This global nitrogen pollution may interact with climate change to produce a double whammy that could alter remote lakes in ways not seen in the past 10 000 years Schindler saidThe authors conclude that climate natural sources of nitrogen and normal chemical processes on land and in water cannot account for the chemical signals they observe Read the full article here Nitrogen from humans pollutes remote lakes for more than a century Comments are closed Climate change may bring big ecosystem shifts NASA says rahiman February 1 2012 10 13 am Recent For more than 25 years scientists have warned of the dangers of human induced climate change said Jon Bergengren a scientist who led the study while a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech Our study introduces a new view of climate change exploring the ecological implications of a few degrees of global warming While warnings of melting glaciers rising sea levels and other environmental changes are illustrative and important ultimately it s the ecological consequences that matter most Read the full article here Climate change may bring big ecosystem shifts NASA says Comments are closed Biofuels not food the biggest driver of land grabbing deals says report rahiman January 27 2012 10 12 am Recent In Africa the impact of biofuels was even stronger with 66 per cent of land purchases used for biofuels Food was next highest at 15 per cent The report Land Rights and the Rush for Land involved the collaboration of over 40 different organisations in the research process the biggest study to date Report author Michael Taylor from the International Land Coalition says they were surprised by the dominance of biofuels in land grabbing deals The report highlighted land grab deals that went wrong and left local populations Read the full article here Biofuels not food the biggest driver of land grabbing deals says report Comments are closed Climate change driving tropical birds to higher elevations rahiman January 23 2012 10 12 am Recent Tropical birds are moving to higher elevations because of climate change but they may not be moving fast enough to keep up according to a new study by Duke University researchers It provides new evidence of their response to warming but also shows there is a delay in their response Forero Medina and his colleagues used survey data collected on bird species in the region in the 1970s by John Terborgh research professor emeritus at Duke to compare past and present distributions and understand the effects of 40 years of warming on tropical birds Read the full article here Climate change driving tropical birds to higher elevations Comments are closed Industrial inertia to change is delaying development of zero carbon homes report finds rahiman January 19 2012 10 11 am Recent Tackling rising CO2 emissions from the residential sector could make a vital contribution towards mitigating climate change according to a new report from the UCL Bartlett School of Planning Setting out the best strategies for achieving this goal by studying examples of good practice globally the Zero Carbon Homes Project was inspired by a progressive new policy introduced in 2007 by the UK government to ensure that all new homes built post 2016 would be zero carbon It was this move that marked the most radical approach to residential carbon reduction to date Dr Jo Williams principal investigator of the Zero Carbon Homes Project from the UCL Bartlett School of Planning said Since 2007 very little has happened in the UK at least in part due to the economic crisis and subsequent housing slump However there are other factors at play here not least a lack of political support and significant institutional inertia to change The findings of the project were recently published in the book Zero Carbon Homes A Road Map Housing currently generates 7 of global CO2 emissions according to 2009 International Energy Agency Statistics In Europe this figure rises to 10 with CO2 emissions in the US even higher at 20 However currently the largest regional increase in CO2 emissions for residential buildings is in developing Asia accounting for 42 and the Middle East North Africa accounting for 42 providing a real challenge to the mitigation of climate change Dr Williams said Zero carbon homes are technically feasible to build and with the right legislative and fiscal framework they are also affordable as demonstrated in Europe and the USA With rapid reduction in the price of low carbon technologies and rising energy costs zero carbon homes will make increasing economic sense even in the short term Yet while the technology exists the research highlights that currently the biggest barrier to the development of zero carbon homes internationally are the construction and energy industries particularly the energy industry The project identified lots of examples of good practice globally but few where low carbon prototypes had become widespread across cities or regions For wider deployment of low carbon development to occur it would require that the international regulatory framework forced the energy industry to diversify their current portfolios to become suppliers of low carbon energy and of services to reduce energy consumption In the absence of an international framework the onus rests on nation states or individual cities to have the political courage to support the delivery of this agenda said Dr Williams So far purely market based approaches to the deployment of zero carbon homes haven t worked even when there are high concentrations of green consumers As in the past where wider deployment of prototypes had occurred within nation states and cities it had been driven

    the poles are melting forests are being destroyed and animals are being hunted to extinction The situation is so bleak that one would not be wrong to say that our own greed is going to lead to our extinction However are we simply over reacting or is what is happening simply the norm of life on the universe survival for the fittest History shows that the earth has had higher temperatures than it has right now and species have become extinct long before even humans came into existence Case in point are the dinosaurs a meteorite that hit the earth millions of years ago resulted in change of its climate thus their extinction More so incoming data shows that the melting of the ice at the polls is not only going to expose more minerals but also ease transport between North America Russia and Europe On top of that it will create more land for cultivation in some areas plus change of seasons With the increasing world population the need for energy has never been so dire to ensure proper functioning societies which makes it unrealistic to reduce energy consumption Considering the above is the fight against climate change worth
