  • Unsustainable water consumption contributes to sea level rise

    The global sea level is rising, yet only part of that rise can be attributed to the effects of climate change. New research has calculated that human impacts on terrestrial water storage make up around 42% of total sea level rise, in particular, the extraction of groundwater that eventually makes its way to the ocean. Tidal measurements have revealed that the global sea level rose by 1.8mm per ...

  • Shale gas: independent planning is key to reducing environmental impacts of fracking

    Funding for scientists, planners and inspectors should be available before any shale gas development begins, a new review recommends. As revenue for such staff is often provided by the development itself, planning, which is vital to provide immediate environmental protection as well as monitoring long-term impacts, is neglected. The researchers also advocate the use of ‘adaptive ...
