Here are some of the top climate news items this autumn:
Many people may have welcomed a warmer than usual October, but the last 12 months were the hottest ever recorded on Earth. Not good.
The Texas Board of Education is being advised to reject new science text books that include accurate descriptions of the causes and effects of the climate emergency. Really stupid.
Cambridge researchers are developing a net-zero fuel that would burn without creating carbon dioxide emissions. Godspeed!
Working from home could lower emissions by 54 percent compared to wasting hours commuting to the office where you’re still likely to catch the flu or get COVID-19 again, according to peer-reviewed research by really smart people. Good news.
As greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, global heating is not keeping pace at the same rate. In fact, global heating is accelerating. Not good.
Lies that offshore wind farms harm whales and other marine life have spread to Australia, threatening offshore wind development there. Really stupid.
The use of gas-powered leaf blowers and other garden equipment in Massachusetts last year generated as much pollution as 135,000 cars. Please stop.
The system of carbon offsets is broken. Good to know; now time to find a program that actually works.
Thanks for reading this digest. More in-depth climate articles coming.
