If it’s really true that media coverage of climate change has plateaued — or is declining — who or what is to blame for this “trance?” Speculation suggests the culprits may include the global economic meltdown, falling oil prices, and disaster fatigue. Whether the reduced coverage is actual or perceived, governments may interpret it as reduced public pressure to devise and implement strong environmental policies.
ClimateYou does its part by disseminating articles on all aspects of climate change as widely as possible.
Biological life near Antarctica is apparently flourishing, a study of biodiversity recently reported in the NY Times. Not only did scientists find greater biodiversity than they expected, they also determined that, in contrast to other regions, biodiversity had changed little in recent centuries. This finding provides a baseline for studying the changes in resident species caused by climate change. Scientists predict that with a two degree Celcius rise in Antarctic temperatures, most species of penguins living in the Orkneys would be, like the polar bears of the Artic, in danger of extinction.
