News and Opinion

Coverage of IPCC since July 2, 2023.

We should listen to a renowned scientist’s warning on climate change

"...In recent years, Dr. Hansen has argued that the scientific consensus, as reflected in the voluminous reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), greatly underestimates the rate and magnitude of future warming. Earlier this month, he and 17 colleagues forcefully stated their case in a peer-reviewed paper, Global Warming in the Pipeline, published by a University of Oxford journal..."


What Is the Paris Agreement’s Article 2.1(c) on Climate Finance, and Why Does it Matter? Key Questions, Answered

"...As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) explains, ”there is sufficient global capital to close the global investment gaps… but there are barriers to redirecting capital to climate action. ” The challenge, then, is not necessarily raising additional finance for climate change mitigation and adaptation, but how to align all the world’s capital towards climate action..."


7 Things to Know About Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration

"...No, CCUS is not the same as carbon removal.  Carbon dioxide removal (or just “carbon removal”) removes CO2 that is already in the atmosphere. Carbon removal includes a range of approaches from familiar things like tree restoration, to newer technological approaches like direct air capture and carbon mineralization..."


What Does the Law of the Sea Say about Climate Change? Hakai Magazine

"...Sarah Cooley, director of climate science at the Ocean Conservancy and a lead chapter author of the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report spoke as an expert witness for COSIS. At the hearing, she outlined how the already increasing temperature and acidity of the ocean will continue to have “vast and drastic” consequences for the marine environment, including sea level rise, ocean acidification, shifting currents, ecosystem changes, and the increased likelihood and severity of marine heatwaves..."


Factcheck: 21 misleading myths about electric vehicles

"...Electric vehicles (EVs) significantly cut lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions in almost all circumstances and are the key technology for decarbonising road transport..."


How a new wave of lawsuits is targeting airline

"...It’s an effective form of climate action due to the power exerted by advertising on public perception and social norms. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has underscored the importance of reducing demand for flying in the first place, something significantly hindered by adverts that downplay its environmental impact..."


'Gobsmackingly bananas' - is the Earth about to record its highest temperature for 3 million years?

"...While other factors like the Sun and volcanoes affect the climate, there is an overwhelming scientific consensus that man-made emissions of greenhouse gases are principally to blame..."


Recommendations for Governing Carbon Removal in Long-term Climate Planning

"...These governance gaps are also particularly relevant to the upcoming UN Conference on Climate Change (COP28), which will be held in Dubai in late 2023. Carbon removal — along with carbon capture at emissions sources — is expected to be an area of focus given the host’s position as a small, oil producing country. Critical questions around carbon removal’s role in relation to emissions reduction and fossil fuel use are likely to be brought to the fore since the promise of carbon removal has been used by some to justify continued fossil fuel production..."


US oil firm buys carbon capture tech to fuel oil extraction future

"...Occidental Petroleum’s purchase of a Canadian direct air capture (DAC) company for US$1. 1 billion will enable it to profit from tackling climate change while continuing to extract oil and gas for 60 or more years into the future, says CEO Vicki Hollub..."


Q&A: How is climate change affecting China’s cropland?

"...But what, specifically, is happening to China’s arable land? And how does China plan to minimise the negative impacts of climate change on its wider food system? ..."


Natural gas -- cleaner than coal and getting cleaner

"...But it’s not greenwashing to state that natural gas produces fewer greenhouse gases than coal does.  According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), gas power produces 50 per cent fewer emissions than coal power, even when methane emissions from natural gas are taken into account..."


2 people missing after torrential rain in Quebec causes landslide

"...Authorities say the Éternité River had overflowed and then the landslide swept away three people who were outside of their cars clearing the road. Environment Canada reported a rainfall of about 130 millimetres within two hours. Story continues below advertisement..."

The temperature increase due to climate warming can affect the photosynthetic responses of aquatic macrophytes from tropical lo

"...Considering that macrophytes, alongside macroalgae and periphyton, form the basis of autotrophic food webs in tropical lotic ecosystems, our results suggest that there is a real possibility that the negative effects produced by global warming on these primary producers are propagated, as a ?cascade effect?, indirectly affecting higher trophic levels as well..."
