The Burning of the Amazon is a Problem – but not for oxygen

The Amazon produces a lot of oxygen which is no surprise, it’s a lot of plants! But that isn’t the reason why we should care that it’s being burnt down. Most of our oxygen comes from water and is already in the atmosphere so the forest’s destruction isn’t going to impact that but it’s STILL a problem.

Food Scarcity As Climate Changes – as the crisis continues some countries more in danger than others

The climate crisis isn’t going to affect everyone equally. We’ve know that for quite some time but a new report is a harrowing reminder of the inequality of the issue.

No Fan In Dry Heat – new study points to fans as unhelpful when the weather is hot and dry

When it gets hot out, we generally reach for a fan when we can but a new study shows that turning on the box fan when the temperature is really soaring may not be the best idea, especially if you happen to be in a dry heat. Turning on a fan in a dry heat wave may leave you worse for wear.

There’s been a lot of talk from certain sectors about colonizing Mars in the future and as awesome as that sounds, there are a lot of reasons that it probably won’t work out. Which is to say, sorry, we won’t be able to to just get a new planet because we’ve run this one through the ringer. Check out this article for a pretty comprehensive overview of why.

Heatwave Caused By Climate Change – our actions made the extreme heat possible

Europe was really, really hot this past week and the jury is in: The heatwave was made worse by man made climate factors. Yes. We did this to ourselves and it’s time to start working on fixing these things.

Too Hot To Sweat – climate change will make parts of the planet uninhabitable, soon

Humans can survive in a lot of varied climates but our ability to survive the heat may be meeting its limits in some places. Not because it’s too hot but because it’s (just) too hot but the humidity. Turns out a wet heat really is worse than a dry heat.
