Explaining Climate Facts – 3/3 – Adaptation & Mitigation

Explaining Climate Facts – 3/3 – Adaptation & Mitigation

Climate change has already had clear impacts on natural and human systems. Over the coming decades, based on the various scenarios of emission of greenhouse gases, the range with which climate can change is quite wide, and depends on policy decisions that we take now. The risk of negative impacts results from the interaction between the climate-related …

Grazed and Confused? How much can grazing livestock help to mitigate climate change?

Grazed and Confused? How much can grazing livestock help to mitigate climate change?

Grazed and confused? How much can grazing livestock help to mitigate climate change? These are ruminants. Ruminants have specialized stomachs containing microorganisms. This allows them to eat hard-to-digest plants like grass, unlike pigs and chickens. However, these microorganisms also produce methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. And the more fibrous the ruminants’ diets, the more methane …

A greenhouse gas is a gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy within the thermal infrared range. Greenhouse gases cause the greenhouse effect. The primary greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone. Without greenhouse gases, the average temperature of Earth’s surface would be about −18 °C (0 …

How Seaweed Could Slow Down Climate Change

We are hooked on meat. We chop, slice, and sink our teeth into it, it’s rooted in our genes and culture, and globally speaking, appetites are on the rise. The average amount of meat consumed per person has nearly doubled in the past 50 years. And this demand is putting an incredible amount of pressure …

How does climate change affect biodiversity?

(gentle music) – [Instructor] What are some of the global threats so biodiversity? First, I want to emphasize that virtually everything we do locally has global consequences. When we talk about something like a greenhouse gas or a pollutant, that’s something we produce locally from our car or from other things that make up so …
