“Our house is on fire. I am here to say, our house is on fire.” – Greta Thunberg (Davos, Sweden – World Economic Forum 2019).   The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reported that we have less than 12 years before the damage we have inflicted on the planet becomes irreversible. In order to even stand a chance at reversing said damage, we would have to see drastic changes being made throughout all aspects...

Will reforestation naturally combat climate change? Scientists and environmental activists strongly believe that restoring forest lands including other significant ecosystems could fight climate change. One suggestion is to plant trees on upland savannah to further develop wildlife environment in Cumbria, United Kingdom. The planet is currently facing two crises – climate and ecological breakdown. Neither one has been completely addressed to prevent the Earth’s further deterioration. Environmentalists suggest the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from...

The huge global demand for energy made it necessary to tap into the different type of resources, including coal. However, some of these resources have only exacerbated the existing environmental problems caused by global warming. In Britain, a third of its electricity is expected to be generated by the turbines that will stand in shallow seas. These rotary mechanical wind machines will soon stand hundreds of square miles of the United Kingdom’s coastlines. Next in...

Carbon dioxide emitted by vehicles, coal plants, and factories are being turned back into coal. Magic? It’s science. Climate change gets worse by the minute. While storms lash the midwest part of the planet, the other side of the Earth endures drought and heat wave. Until now the debate over global warming is not over whether it is true or not. Different environmentalists and conservationists around the world keep track of what is happening and...

With the mass adoption of blockchain technology, its effectiveness is not limited to cryptocurrency but could also be an environment-friendly approach to preserving the only planet we live in. With the advent of technology in this 21st century, humans cannot be stopped from innovation. Tech-minded people continue to find ways on how their inventions and breakthroughs can be utilized to make life easier. The question is, are these innovations, particularly blockchain technology, able to help save...

Can we stop climate change just by planting trees? A NASA study reported that China and India, are responsible for the biggest growth in green vegetation. These two countries have contributed to make the Earth greener based on the satellite representation published in the journal Nature Sustainability. For the past decades, Earth’s forest areas have grown by 5% or more than two million square miles. According to NASA, the said zone corresponds to the overall summation of the ...

The continuous warming of oceans around the world could make the oceans change its color in an unprecedented way due to climate change. According to a study published in the journal Nature Communications, phytoplankton will transform while the oceans keep on warming. As the relentless greenhouse gas emissions take effect, the bluest part of the ocean will become bluer while the greener zones close to the equator and poles will become greener. The shifting colors could be a spectacle...

Too much heat caused by global warming has already killed thousands of animals from the Land Down Under. Australia is enduring the maximum temperature of 42°C ever recorded in Perth. It could be 10° above normal, however, it still is 4° off the record. The intensified heatwave caused lakes and rivers to dry up. The warm air and high humidity giving the animals hard time to breathe causing their deaths. Freshwater fishes including bony herring, golden and silver...

Ocean waves are noticeably getting stronger, courtesy of climate change that shifts the wind patterns. New research published in Nature suggests that ocean waves are getting more forceful and more dangerous while climate change continues to deliberately warm oceans around the world. Local wind patterns stimulate upper-ocean waves. These wind patterns are propelled by discrepancies in the temperature between various distinct layers of the air. As greenhouse gases are injected into the atmosphere and warm...

The Greenland ice sheets are exceptionally melting faster than first thought. According to the study published in the scientific journal “Nature”, that Greenland ice sheets melt increased rapidly in the past 20 years. Right now, it is thawing at a rate of 50% higher compared to small-scale levels and 30% beyond 20th-century levels. The ice sheets contain sufficient water to elevate global sea levels by 23 feet. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution associate scientist Sarah Das said, “What we were able...
