Living Buildings: Cladding buildings to help combat effects of climate change

Living Buildings: Cladding buildings to help combat effects of climate change

Posted Mon, 13 Dec 2010 12:37:00 GMT by Michael Evans

Research at the University of Greenwich and others is investigating the use of ethical synthetic biology to greate 'living' materials that can be used to clad buildings. University of Greenwich School of Architecture and Construction is poised to use ethical synthetic biology to create 'living' materials that could be used to clad buildings and help combat the effects of climate change.

Northern Wildfires Threaten Runaway Climate Change

Northern Wildfires Threaten Runaway Climate Change

Posted Mon, 13 Dec 2010 12:10:01 GMT by Michael Evans

A warmer climate is leading to an increase in forest fires in northern latitudes, which in turn is leading to an increase in the release of carbon currently trapped in tundra and permafrost. This is the first study to reveal that wild forest fires that are a regular feature of the 18.5 million hectares of Alaska's interior have become more severe in the last ten years.

New UN Climate Law: Protection or otherwise?

New UN Climate Law: Protection or otherwise?

A new UN climate law Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) is being protesd by various environmental groups as being detrimental for the climate policies already in place. Groups like the Global Justice Ecological Programme say that the REDD is being pushed by powerful interests to allow continued pollution, since industrial countries can offset their emissions by paying poor countries with forests to plant trees to absorb the carbon.

Japan reports impressive gains in reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at the GLOBE International legislators group meeting in Mexico City midway through the Cancun climate summit though officially they dont want to be a part of the extension of the Kyoto Protocol after the first phase expires in 2012.

How climate change can give a boost to non-native species with potentially devastating results. A recent study indicates that a combination of a warmer world, more extreme weather and higher levels of planet-warming carbon dioxide have the potential to devastate ecosystems.

A collection of new papers welcoming world leaders to Cancun effectively argue that this latest round of climate change talks should be seen almost as a damage limitation exercise. Up to one billion people around the world are set to lose their homes over the next 90 years as a result of ongoing failures to cut back on carbon emissions.

Narwhals are being used to explore the waters under the frozen arctic ocean and report in on under ice winter temperatures previously only possible using costly icebreaker cruises or helicopter charters, filling a vital hole in climate data for the rapidly warming region.

Far from urging the public to take action, emotional and shocking messages about the threats posed by climate change may deter people from working to minimise their carbon footprints, US scientists beleive.
