The UN climate change summit is a vital chance for the world to avoid catastrophe | Bob Ward 21.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Leaders must act together to reverse carbon emissions or betray their children and future generations This week, I will witness a key test of whether we will betray our children, grandchildren and future generations through a lack of ambition and will. I will be at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York on Thursday to listen to David Cameron, Barack Obama and more than 120 other political leaders outline how they intend to tackle the growing risks from climate change. The summit has been called by the United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, to try to build high-level support for efforts to reach an international agreement to avoid dangerous levels of global warming, which is due to be signed in Paris in December ...

It's time to teach climate change in school. Here's how | Sophia Shaw 19.9.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
We need to give our kids the tools to observe and understand the effects of a changing climate for their future and ours Why is it so difficult to teach climate change in our classrooms? My kids hear climate change discussed in the news as a very real threat , but it is largely absent from school science curricula. In fact, most children the world over dont receive any formal academic reasoning to put the vast amount of information and opinions into context, and they have no credible outlet to ask their own ...

Climate change report: prevent damage by overhauling global economy 16.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Reducing emissions can generate better growth than old high-carbon model, says co-author of report, Lord Stern

The world can still act in time to stave off the worst effects of climate change, and enjoy the fruits of continued economic growth as long as the global economy can be transformed within the next 15 years, a group of the world's leading economists and political leaders will argue on Tuesday.

Tackling climate change can be a boon to prosperity, rather than a brake, according to the study involving a roll-call of the globe's biggest institutions, including the UN, the OECD group of rich countries, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and co-authored by Lord Stern, one of the world's most influential voices on climate economics.

The Guardian view on the unchanging message from climate scientists 15.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
When the science is so rigorous, politics must be equally vigorous Climate scientists have just established what did not make a vast chunk of Antarctic ice shelf break off 12 years ago and start floating northwards. They report in the journal Science that they can rule out instability in the bedrock on which the Larsen-B sheet was grounded . That leaves surface warming as the most likely explanation: in other words, it could have been climate change as a consequence of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide that made the 3,250 square kilometres of ice up to 200 metres thick break off from the rest of Antarctica. This was pretty much the conclusion that many people jumped to at the time , but scientists needed to explore other possible causes, and this cautious confirmation of climate change tells the world something about scientific rigour: only once the sea floor was exposed could researchers, in a series of cruises, make seismic measurements and take samples of the mud below. Scientists have to make ...

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take to the streets of New York, London and eight other cities worldwide in a fortnight to pressure world leaders to take action on global warming, in what organisers claim will be the biggest climate march in history.

On 23 September, heads of state will join a New York summit on climate change organised by Ban Ki-moon, the first time world leaders have come together on the issue since the landmark Copenhagen summit in 2009, which was seen as a failure.
