'Melting Away' —  Climate change and Greenland's Inuits

'Melting Away' —  Climate change and Greenland's InuitsOver the past five years, photographer Ciril Jazbec has documented the changing lives of the Inuit people in Greenland, the world’s largest island, which is covered by the world’s largest and fastest-melting ice sheet.  This fact, together with the darkening of its surface, mean the changes in Greenland will affect the entire planet and its species, the majority of the scientists have come to agree. Jazbec’s long-term project, Melting Away, is about a people at the forefront of climate change, who have an ancient knowledge of hunting and are in search of ways to survive a collapsing ecosystem. Qaanaaq and Siorapaluk, the world’s northernmost settlements of roughly 700 Inuits, continues its traditional ways despite several alarming climate, environmental and cultural threats.

Michael Bloomberg 'to write $4.5m cheque to cover US commitment to Paris climate agreement'

Michael Bloomberg 'to write $  4.5m cheque to cover US commitment to Paris climate agreement'Billionaire former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg has said he will write a $ 4.5m cheque to cover the US’s financial commitment to the Paris Climate agreement for 2018. Donald Trump pulled the US out of the climate pact last year, saying it was a “terrible deal” which would “undermine” the economy and put the US at a “permanent disadvantage”. The move made the US the only country in the world opposed to the climate change agreement which aims to cut carbon emissions in an effort to restrict global temperature rises to less than 2C by the end of this century.

Climate change runs AMOC with Atlantic currents: studies

Climate change runs AMOC with Atlantic currents: studiesA system of Atlantic Ocean currents that regulates global weather is at its feeblest in 1,600 years, weakened partly by climate change, said researchers Wednesday, warning of trouble ahead. Two studies in the journal Nature concluded the system, dubbed the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), is in decline — validating a long-held scientific suspicion. The weakening, agreed the teams, was the result of melting sea ice, glaciers, and ice-shelves gushing freshwater — less dense than salty ocean water — into the North Atlantic.
