We’re running out of time – global warming expected to exceed 1.5 degrees within a decade

In 2015, 196 Parties signed a legally binding international treaty on climate change. The Paris Agreement set a goal to limit global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, and ideally to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels. Limiting warming is essential to avoid the worst impacts of climate change including rising sea levels and… Continue reading We’re running out of time – global warming expected to exceed 1.5 degrees within a decade

Climate change: a public health emergency

Over previous decades, we have experienced incredible scientific and medical advances, including the creation of vaccines for many of the world’s diseases. However, climate change is fuelling the spread of several infectious diseases while aggravating many other health issues. Increasing demand coupled with unprepared health systems is creating a public health emergency. We have had… Continue reading Climate change: a public health emergency

Climate change unwrapped: 2022

The signs of climate change are becoming increasingly evident and drastic. As 2022 comes to an end, we’re looking at how the climate has changed this year. We’re starting in the European Alps which took an exceptional toll with record-shattering ice melt. Average thickness losses of 3 to over 4 metres were measured across the… Continue reading Climate change unwrapped: 2022

What can we expect from COP27 after the pledges made at COP26?

After delays due to COVID, the much-anticipated COP26 triggered a new wave of climate hope as countries from across the world agreed that more urgently needs to be done to prevent a dangerous rise in global atmospheric temperatures. With COP27 just around the corner, we are looking back at what has changed since last year’s… Continue reading What can we expect from COP27 after the pledges made at COP26?

The emission gap

We all have a carbon footprint, it is an unavoidable side effect of daily life. However, the size of everyone’s carbon footprint varies drastically. A recent study has discovered that in one year the top 1% of earners in the UK are responsible for the same volume of greenhouse gas emissions as the bottom 10%… Continue reading The emission gap

The solutions exist we need to implement them

Annual greenhouse gas emissions were at their highest levels between 2010 to 2019, since then the increase has slowed slightly. However, there is still a long way to go in reducing our emissions. Without immediate and drastic emission reductions across all industries, limiting global warming to 1.5°C will remain a distant target. We are seeing… Continue reading The solutions exist we need to implement them

Living on the edge: the irreversible climate tipping points less than 1°C away

The Earth’s temperature is increasing by approximately 0.32° F (0.18° C) per decade. We have experienced the warmest seven years since 2015, with an 11% chance that 2022 will rank among the top five. If our current rates of warming continue, a new analysis reports that we risk crossing six “dangerous” climate tipping points. Many… Continue reading Living on the edge: the irreversible climate tipping points less than 1°C away
