I Didn't Care About Climate Change Until I Visited Greenland — Now I'm Freaking Out About It

I Didn't Care About Climate Change Until I Visited Greenland — Now I'm Freaking Out About It | climatefuture | Scoop.it
I was speechless. At the end of the Greenland journey, we all wanted to commit to doing something. No one person alone can convince governments to price carbon, or industries to move towards cleaner practices and reduce carbon pollution. The question is: can we do something that has a measurable positive impact? In my case, as an oceanographer and explorer, I will try to help protect as much as the sea as possible from fishing and pollution, so that ocean life can be more resilient against the effects of global warming. I leave it up to you to think about what you are willing to do.

This would be an absolute disgrace if Unesco allow Australia to backtrack on world heritage commitments. Tony Abbott calls himself a conservationist but on this evidence that is a ridiculous claim.

Norway: Svalbard’s reindeer thrive as climate warms | Climate News Network | climatefuture | Scoop.it
There will be winners as well as losers as climate change intensifies, and scientists say they have just found one species that is prospering already. Far from threatening the reindeer on the Norwegian high Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, rising temperatures appear to be driving a remarkable increase in the animals’ numbers. Scientists from the University of Manchester, UK, and the Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø have found that the numbers of Svalbard reindeer, continuing a trend that has been observed over the last 36 years, increased by 30% in the last year.
