Extreme weather conditions will kill 152,000 Europeans a year by 2100: Study 5.8.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Europe's death toll from weather disasters could rise 50-fold by the end of this century, with extreme heat alone killing more than 150,000 people a year by 2100 if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, scientists said on Friday. In a study in The Lancet Planetary Health journal, the scientists said their findings showed climate change placing a rapidly increasing burden on society, with two in three people in Europe likely to be affected if greenhouse gas emissions and extreme weather events are not controlled. The predictions, based on an assumption of no reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and no improvement in policies to reduce the impact of extreme climatic events, show European weather-related deaths rising from 3,000 a year between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 a year between 2071 and 2100. "Climate change is one of the biggest global threats to human health of the 21st century, and its peril to society will be increasingly connected to weather-driven hazards," said Giovanni ...

US formally informs UN its intention to withdraw from Paris climate change deal 5.8.2017 DNA: India
The US has submitted its formal communication to the UN indicating it will withdraw from the historic 2015 Paris climate agreement as soon as possible, the State Department has said. The communication is in line with the decision announced by President Donald Trump recently, which was one of his key electoral promises. But according to the terms of the pact, the US can't fully withdraw until November 4, 2020, which would be a day after the next presidential election is held in the US. This means the next US president could still rejoin the agreement. The Paris climate deal aims to prevent the Earth from heating up by 2C since the start of the industrial age. The State Department said that the US submitted a communication to the UN, in its capacity as a depositary for the Paris agreement, regarding the US intent to withdraw from it as soon as it is eligible to do so. As the president indicated in his June 1 announcement and subsequently, he is open to re-engaging with the agreement if the US can identify ...

With every 0.55 degree rise in global temperature, US loses 07% GDP: Study 30.6.2017 DNA: Opinion
Unmitigated climate change will cause significant damage to the US economy, making the country poorer and widening income inequalities, a study warns. The study is the first of its kind to price warming using data and evidence accumulated by the research community over decades. From this data, the team estimates that for each 0.55 degree C increase in global temperatures, the US economy loses about 0.7% of Gross Domestic Product, with each degree of warming costing more than the last. The poorest third of counties could sustain economic damage costing as much as 20 per cent of their income if warming proceeds unabated. States in the South and lower Midwest, which tend to be poor and hot already, will lose the most, with economic opportunity travelling northward and westward. Colder and richer counties along the northern border and in the Rockies could benefit the most as health, agriculture and energy costs are projected to improve, according to the study published in the journal Science. Overall, the ...

Global warming means more sweltering days 24.6.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Extremely hot days, when temperatures soar to 95 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, can be miserable. Crops wilt in the fields. Electric grids strain to keep pace with demand. People are at greater risk of dying. And those hot temperatures are expected to be much more frequent in the coming decades. A new analysis from the Climate Impact Lab examined how extremely hot days are expected to multiply this century if countries take moderate climate action. In this scenario, countries would take some measures, but not drastic ones, to curb emissions — roughly the trajectory of the current pledges under the Paris climate agreement. The resulting global warming would still cause significant shifts for many cities. In Washington, from 1986 to 2005, an average of seven days each year had temperatures of at least 95 degrees. By the end of the century, the city can expect 29 of these extremely hot days per year, on average. (The likely range is 14 to 46 hot days per year.) Phoenix is used to the heat, averaging 124 days ...

Massive Coal Mine Closer To Reality As Beloved Reef Crumbles To Climate Change 6.6.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
SYDNEY ― An Indian mining giant announced Tuesday the “official start” of a proposed $16 billion coal project in Australia that conservationists say threatens the  Great Barrier Reef . Adani Group chairman  Gautam Adani  said the company had approved its “ final investment decision ” regarding the controversial project in central Queensland. The  100-square-mile Carmichael mine  would produce millions of tons of the fossil fuel each year. It has faced severe backlash in the country from environmental groups who say the project would negate Australia’s pledges to limit greenhouse gas emissions and harm the environment ― particularly the  imperiled reef, located off the state’s coast. “We have been challenged by activists in the courts, in inner city streets, and even outside banks that have not even been approached to finance the project,” said Adani, who founded the energy company, at a press conference. “We are still facing activists. But we are committed to this project.” In recent months, Australian ...
