The world could see annual global temperatures pass a key threshold for the first time in the coming five years, the U.N. weather agency says.
By keeping the carbon out of the atmosphere, seagrass meadows help regulate our climate system. However, a recent study of an Australian estuary found that they're not all equally good at storing carbon.
Officials desperately need to explore new avenues both to pay for efforts to make us more resilient and to dramatically reduce dangerous carbon pollution so we don't make it worse. However, the looming question is: Will taxpayers be left with the bill?
If you're reading this, there's a fair chance that you care about climate change. But do you believe we're able to do anything to reduce it? If you live in the U.K., the answer is: probably not.

To plan a renewable energy project means knowing how much wind and sun an area gets - today and 50 years from now. Models of future climate change scenarios help with that, but processing the information into a visual format has resulted in a pixelated image like the one below.
Four of the fellows who participated in the program this year will discuss their ongoing research, activism, and experiences with publishing their ideas in the public sphere.
With job loss and stifled development in the renewable energy sector, economists, politicians, and advocates say policy action is necessary to stay on track.
The pandemic has put public health officials in a perilous place—caught between the common good and the often-toxic American drive for personal freedom.
