More investments needed to accomplish a climate-neutral Europe by 2050

SEA EUROPE stated that with 90% of international trade, 80% of the EU’s external trade and 40% of the EU’s internal trade carried by water, shipping is vital for trade. In the meantime, shipping accounts for the 3.1% of CO2 emissions. Should no actions to be taken, shipping emissions could exceed the 250% by 2050.

Glacial melt sand could improve Greenland’s economy, study finds

As climate change melts Greenland’s glaciers and deposits more river sediment on its shores, researchers identified an unexpected economic opportunity for the Arctic nation. Namely, exporting excess sand and gravel abroad, where raw materials for infrastructure are in high demand. This solution was developed by scientists from CU Boulder, the University of Copenhagen, Arizona State University and the Rhode Island School of Design.

US Navy considers building wall to protect HQ from climate change

Insight on Polar Vortex breakdown

Polar Vortex, a pattern of high-altitude winds in the Arctic, weakened resulting to frigid air over North America and Europe in the second half of January 2019. Although the Arctic ice sea extent remained below average, temperatures in the far north were closer to average than in past years. Specifically, Arctic sea ice extent for January averaged 13.56 million square kilometers (5.24 million square miles). This was 860.000 square kilometres less in comparison to 1981 to 2010 long-term average sea ice extent, and 500.000 square kilometres above the record low for the month set in January 2018.

Climate change to affect the oceans colour

According to a new MIT study, climate change is causing significant changes to phytoplankton in the world’s oceans, and over the coming decades these changes will affect the ocean’s colour, intensifying its blue regions and its green ones. The researchers found that, by the year 2100, more than 50% of the world’s oceans will change in colour, because of climate change.
