Birds and the Climate Crisis – as the Earth warms, birds are going through some changes

The climate crisis is really hard on birds. Our feathered friends are going through a lot of, not so great, changes as the climate changes giving us a real life example of how this is effecting the world at large. Changes in migration patterns, size, and just disappearance is painting a bleak picture for the future.

Water From Fog – fog catching provides a solid water source for drought prone areas

Everyone needs water. This is a resource that will be scarcer the more the climate crisis builds. Dry areas will be hit hard but innovation in this area is bringing a new water source to the forefront: Fog. Fog catchers are supplying dry areas with water that can be used for agriculture and even drinking with netting.

Climate Change Slideshow – check out these photos

Climate change and the climate crisis are pretty abstract terms to most people. We still have seasons that come and go. Still cold in the winter, hot in summer. If you don’t live somewhere that is seeing the early effects of the issue it’s easy to believe that these problems are made up or blown out of proportion. Check out this slideshow to see how the planet is really changing.

Climate Crisis To Bring Mass Extinction – large number of species will not survive

The climate crisis puts the world’s biodiversity in danger. As it gets warmer and weather gets more extreme, many plants and animals will not be able to survive these changes. Anywhere from 50-95% of species will become extinct in the next 50 years. That’s a lot.

New Research Might Help Save Reefs – organisms get another weapon against climate crisis

Coral reefs are not doing so great in a time of climate crisis but there’s some good news for them. Scientists have found that non-genetic traits that they’ve given the coral to help them survive can be passed to future generations. Which is very good news.

Lowering Flight Emissions – one simple change could make a huge difference

Airline travel has come under harsh criticism for the amount of emissions that it causes for what is in many cases a luxury choice. New research may have landed on a solution for lowering those numbers so that flying has less of a footprint. Just by changing the height of flights.

Wildfire Smoke – it’s not just the flames that pose harm

Wildfires are very dangerous and frightening for the people who are affected by them. It’s something that the climate crisis makes more likely to happen and for longer periods. It’s not just the physical flames that are dangerous though. The smoke created by these fires also causes harm and has a greater reach.

Emissions From the Arctic – as permafrost melts, emissions go up

As the world gets warmer, permafrost melts. This is the permanently frozen layer under soil in arctic regions of the world. As it melts, it releases greenhouse gases and is one part of the domino effect of climate crisis. NASA has pioneered a study to better help us understand this process.

Extreme Heat Will Become The Norm – the climate crises means summer will be a nightmare

Heatwaves are awful right? Those few days when temperatures soar and it’s like you can’t do anything to escape the heat! The air is trying to melt you! But it’s just a few days, right? Well in the future it’s going to be a lot more. Scientists predict that up to 75% of summer days will be extreme heat days and at that point, I would just call that a new normal.

Future Heatwaves May Lead to Blackouts – the power girds won’t be able to handle the strain

Heatwaves are going to be a major problem with the climate crisis especially for people who live in urban centers. High usage during high temperatures will likely be too much strain on the power grids causing blackouts and leaving the vulnerable without protection.
