Our climate projections for 2500 show an Earth that is alien to humans

Our climate projections for 2500 show an Earth that is alien to humans

There are many reports based on scientific research that talk about the long-term impacts of climate change — such as rising levels of greenhouse gases, temperatures and sea levels — by the year 2100. The Paris Agreement, for example, requires us to limit warming to under 2.0 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by the end of […] … learn more→

Universities must embrace technological solutions to climate change

The University of Cambridge’s recent headline-grabbing announcement of a new research lab to develop radical scientific solutions to climate change is a welcome development. But it is only the beginning of what is needed. Everyone knows that our responses to climate change must be speeded up. Generations of propaganda from the green movement have argued […] … learn more→

How to stop climate change: six ways to make the world a better place
