El agujero de la capa de ozono se recupera por primera vez

Tanto cuando generan un problema de forma no intencionada, como cuando la Humanidad se pone de acuerdo para solucionarlo y lo consigue al cabo de unos cuantos años. Cuando fue descubierto en los 80, el agujero en la capa de ozono se convirtió en una de las mayores amenazas ambientales y en uno de los más conocidos símbolos de la capacidad del ser humano para provocar daños al medio ambiente sin querer. La pérdida de esta capa alta -estratosférica- de la atmósfera formada por moléculas de tres átomos de oxígeno está relacionada con el aumento de casos de cáncer de piel, ya que actúa como filtro para los dañinos rayos ultravioleta que provienen del Sol. Y hoy, casi 30 años después, aquel esfuerzo mundial ha dado sus frutos. Sir David Attenborough: We Need To Create Cheap, Renewable Energy.

Bill Nye the Science Guy Knows How to Fix Climate Change

He inspires memes, has his own bow tie line and has appeared on numerous television shows, including, earlier this month, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, National Geographic Channel’s Explorer series. He’s even been a guest on Dancing With the Stars. But under the stardust is a serious scientist who started life as a humble mechanical engineer at Boeing and is now on a mission to combat scientific ignorance and fight against climate change. His new book, Unstoppable: Harnessing Science To Change The World, mixes science and his trademark humor to rally a new “Greatest Generation”—ours—to solve a global climate change crisis that he believes is more threatening to our survival than World War Two.

Short Answers to Hard Questions About Climate Change

Is there anything I can do? Fly less, drive less, waste less. You can reduce your own carbon footprint in lots of simple ways, and most of them will save you money. You can plug leaks in your home insulation to save power, install a smart thermostat, switch to more efficient light bulbs, turn off the lights in any room where you are not using them, drive fewer miles by consolidating trips or taking public transit, waste less food, and eat less meat. Perhaps the biggest single thing individuals can do on their own is to take fewer airplane trips; just one or two fewer plane rides per year can save as much in emissions as all the other actions combined. If you want to offset your emissions, you can buy certificates, with the money going to projects that protect forests, capture greenhouse gases and so forth. In the end, though, experts do not believe the needed transformation in the energy system can happen without strong state and national policies.

And Now for Some Good News About Climate Change

Six years ago, talks in Copenhagen ended in chaos. Is there any reason to suppose Paris will deliver anything more than well-padded expense accounts for delegates and hot air on the issues? In his new book, Atmosphere of Hope: Searching For Solutions To The Climate Change Crisis, best-selling Australian author Tim Flannery counsels cautious optimism by showing how the millions of small actions taken by individuals are driving down oil consumption and points out how new “Third Way” carbon-capture technologies promise to reduce emissions and create massive economic opportunities. Speaking from a café in Melbourne, he explains how the plastic housing on his cell phone is reducing climate change; why geo-engineering is a disastrous idea; and how he is inspired by the desire to leave a better world for his three children. Images of Change. Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet: Consensus. Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals1 show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities.
