Climate Change Video Games come of Age

Climate Change Video Games come of Age | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

There are games that look specifically at the health issues (such as Climate Health Impact by The Wellcome Trust and Playgen) and games that put the player in the position of trying to persuade the world’s countries to act together (Fate of the World). But there are also games that use the changed world as a narrative setting to explore what that shared future might be, exploring climate change both as creative inspiration and as gameplay subject matter. The example of this I’m going to look at, and how the science has informed the creative content, is the game ‘Brink‘.

Turtles producing more females as an effect of climate change - Inbreeding dangers

Turtles producing more females as an effect of climate change -  Inbreeding dangers | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it
The mating habits of marine turtle may help to protect them against the effects of climate change, according to new research led by the University of Exeter.

The gender of baby turtles is determined by the temperature of the eggs during incubation, with warmer temperatures leading to more females being born. Higher average global temperatures mean that offspring from some populations are predominantly female. This is threatening the future of some populations and there are concerns that inbreeding within groups due to a lack of males will lead to health problems.

US Climate plan aims to help ecosystems adapt to change

The debate over the causes of climate change continues to rage, but federal, state and tribal agencies aren't waiting around for the argument to be settled. They believe climate change is here, and they're working on ways to help wildlife, land and communities adapt.

Two federal agencies and a state wildlife department have developed a broad plan for helping ecosystems become more resilient as the climate changes.

Looking into the future of agriculture in a changing climate

EUROPEAN REVIEW OF AGRICULTURAL ECONOMICS - Looking into the future of agriculture raises three challenging questions: How can agriculture deal with an uncertain future? How do local vulnerabilities and global disparities respond to this uncertain future? How should we prioritise adaptation to overcome the resulting future risks? This paper analyses the broad question of how climate change science may provide some insights into these issues....

Targeting pollution could save millions of lives

Targeting pollution could save millions of lives | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Limiting how much soot and methane reaches the atmosphere using existing technologies could save nearly five million lives every year, and vastly boost global crop yields, scientists report.

Controlling atmospheric levels of these pollutants could also slow global warming by around half a degree by 2050.

From our friends at NASA comes this amazing 26-second video, depicting how temperatures around the globe have warmed since 1880.  The data comes from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, which monitors global surface temperatures. As NASA notes, “in this animation, reds indicate temperatures higher than the average during a baseline period of 1951-1980, while blues indicate lower temperatures than the baseline average.”

Biodiversity crisis: Climate Change and Habitat Loss causing 6th mass extinction : scientists

Scientists meeting at the University of Copenhagen have warned that biodiversity is declining rapidly throughout the world, describing the loss of species as the 6th mass extinction event on the earth. The world is losing species at a rate that is 100 to 1000 times faster than the natural extinction rate, with the challenges of conserving the world's species larger than mitigating the negative effects of global climate change.

Confronting climate change and poverty, a new crop of city farmers comes of age in Africa

Some 15 million Africans abandon the countryside every year in pursuit of better lives in the city. Climate change and further desertification will only exacerbate that trend. How will these ballooning urban populations survive? The best strategy, they're finding, is to begin sowing seeds right where they are.
