by US EPA - Environmental Protection Agency  (Apr. 20, 2015)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has completed an emergency cleanup of elemental mercury at a residential home in Banks, Oregon. EPA worked closely with state and local authorities to complete the cleanup and ensure that public health and the environment were not harmed. On April 16, EPA received a request for assistance from the Oregon ...

African Ministers Call for Strong Paris Agreement, Climate Finance Flows

by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)  (Apr. 16, 2015)

Ministers from governments across Africa have renewed their call for a strong and universal climate change agreement with increased flows of funds, including through market and finance opportunities, sufficient to fulfill Africa's development aspirations. With countries set to approve a new climate change agreement under the UN in ...

Climate change in Antarctica: Natural temperature variability underestimated - Cold spell superimposes man-made warming

by The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK)  (Apr. 16, 2015)

The Antarctic ice sheet is one of the tipping elements in the climate system and hence of vital importance for our planet’s future under man-made climate change. Even a partial melting of the enormous ice masses of Antarctica would raise sea-levels substantially. Therefore it is of utmost importance to provide sound knowledge on the extent ...

Obama presents climate change as hazard to your health

by Associated Press  (Apr. 7, 2015)

President Barack Obama will ask Americans to think of climate change as a threat not just to the environment, but also to their health. Obama on Tuesday was to announce a series of steps that private entities like Google and Microsoft are taking to better prepare the nation's health systems for the inevitable effects of a warmer, more ...

Cut carbon now to avoid climate tipping points

by Climate News Network  (Apr. 3, 2015)

An international team of scientists has tried a new approach to addressing the complex argument about the costs of climate change – and, once again, the prediction is that the costs of inaction will be so much greater than paying the bills now. The researchers − from the UK, Switzerland and the US − ...

Amazon soaking up less carbon as tree deaths rise

by SciDev.Net  (Apr. 2, 2015)

The Amazon rainforest is losing its capacity to absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, raising concerns about how the forest will respond to future climate and atmospheric changes, according to a study in ...

Researchers get flood forecasting off the ground

by SciDev.Net  (Mar. 26, 2015)

Scientists have built a model that accurately predicts floods without data from the ground. Until recently, ground observations were needed alongside satellite data to build a full-enough picture to ...

Atlantic Ocean overturning found to slow down already today

by The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK)  (Mar. 23, 2015)

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation ...

The environmental side benefits to climate change mitigation

by GLOBE Foundation  (Mar. 20, 2015)

Effective greenhouse gas mitigation measures to stabilize global temperature change would also have important environmental benefits such as reduced air pollutant emissions, a recent research predicts. The research study investigated the potential for air pollutants to be reduced as a result of taking action to keep the global temperature ...

Two for the price of one: climate change mitigation measures also reduce air pollution

by European Commission, Environment DG  (Mar. 19, 2015)

Effective greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation measures to stabilise global temperature change to no more than 2°C above pre-industrial temperatures would also substantially reduce air pollutant emissions, recent research predicts. A variety of mitigation options are available, including switching from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy. ...
