Top Climate Change Articles of the Week

This is our 8th edition. Read on to find out how climate change might affect our food supplies!

Explaining climate change science and rebutting global warming misinformation.

We welcome all climate change opinions, believers or deniers (even if we do bang on about being massive believers). This article gets sceptical about the climate sceptic arguments.

6 ways is climate change threatening food security – and what we can do about it.

Climate change is going to affect food supplies around the world. THIS. CAN. NOT. HAPPEN! Here are the figures. By 2050, climate change could increase the risk of food insecurity by up to 20 per cent. To feed the population by 2050, crop production will need to double.

What is a nematode?

We have started incorporating videos into our blogs. No, this is not a cop-out. Some things are better explained with moving pictures. At the Crowther Lab, nematodes are kind of our jam. Johan and Devin are working on a paper looking at the global distribution of nematodes. Click the link if you’d like to hear more about the little critters.

Education must play a part in combating climate change. 

We must use education to equip vulnerable children living in poverty. They will be the ones who are hit hardest as changes in the weather due to climate change can create an unsafe schooling environment. Alongside this, the economic disasters can prevent parents enrolling their children in school. Before that happens, children must be taught about the climate in a bid in order for them to make informed decisions about the way the world is changing. This will then hopefully provide them with the knowledge about their carbon footprint, energy efficiency and what they can do to help combat global warming.
