New analysis shows that the science underpinning the global treaty aiming to stop average temperatures rising more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels urgently needs more research,...
A climate “fix” to curb global warming would have a serious side effect, damaging the Earth's protective ozone shield.
Scientists have put forward several proposals to reduce the amount of sunlight that reaches the planet's surface, including the use of light-reflecting sulphate particles in the atmosphere. But a study published in Science concludes that injecting sulphate particles into the stratosphere would have a drastic impact, reducing Earth's protective ozone layer.
To understand just how complex, scary and immediate climate change is, look no further than the case of the tiny mountain pine beetle.
Populations of this tree-eating insect have exploded over the last ten years due to warmer winters, devastating the majestic forests of western Canada and destroying over $20 billion in timber.
Now comes a frightening study published in the prestigious journal Nature that that the huge swaths of dead trees killed by the beetles are themselves emitting enormous quantities of carbon into the atmosphere as they decompose – further exacerbating our climate problems.
This is rubbish or, in the deathless prose of one of CDD's editor's “pluperfect rubbish.” CDD clearly exists not to resolve the “debate” about global warming, but to encourage the notion that a legitimate argument still exists
According to the Times Online, the CDD “rounds up news and gives equal voice to the dissenters and the activists and as such is a great place to go for varying interpretations of the latest happenings.”
