Year-round Northern Sea Route navigation may be possible by 2030

Navigation along the Northern Sea Route could eventually be possible year-round until 2030, as the climate continues warming, the Head of the Russian State Hydrometeorology University Valery Mikheyev told. He explained that according to forecast, by 2030 NSR’s and its shores will not have ice.

MOL supports initiatives to address global warming

MOL announced that it will support three initiatives to address the issue of global warming. These are the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures; Japan Climate Initiative; and Cool Choice. These aim to contribute to global environmental conservation by developing environmental and emission-free businesses.

Unusual warmth continued in Arctic and Antarctic in October

The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) issued figures confirming that while sea ice extent in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas remains below average, extent remains especially low on the Atlantic side of the Arctic in the Barents and Laptev Seas. October sea ice extent in the Arctic was the third lowest in the satellite record, averaging 6.06 million square kilometers (2.34 million square miles).

UN to publish report on global actions to reduce emissions

The United Nations Environment Programme will publish a report during November, presenting an assessment of current national emissions mitigation efforts and ambitions that countries have presented. The report will also look at fiscal policy, the role of innovation, and the role of non-state and subnational action.

We are the last generation that can save the environment, WWF says

Port of San Diego prepares for future sea level rise

The Port of San Diego is preparing for the future sea level rise and has taken practical measures to mitigate this problem. Namely, at the location of a future hotel and convention center in Chula Vista, the Port trucked enough soil to raise the ground level by 14 feet. The fill dirt project started in August and finished last week. 

The opening of Arctic routes could offset ice melting

As the ice melting creates an uncertain future for the Arctic environment, a new study published in Geophysical Research Letters suggests that the growth of trans-Arctic shipping and the subsequent increase in emissions may offset some of the overall warming trend in the Arctic by the end of the century.

NOAA: Global warming to boost major hurricanes

A new NOAA research looks at the devastating 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. It notes that if similar weather conditions happen in the future, it’s likely the number of major hurricanes to increase by two in a similar active year at the end of century. Climate warming would be the cause of this.
