Global warming is making things more difficult for the next generation.
At the moment, we are living in a period of extraordinary change.
Here are the latest headlines: Australia’s first carbon capture and storage plant has been commissioned by a company that is set to start operating in Australia in 2020.
The United Nations has issued a landmark report on the global warming crisis.
China has announced plans to build an enormous carbon capture plant at a cost of $20 billion, with a plan to build 100 gigawatts of the facility by 2025.
A report published by the World Economic Forum says the world economy is now growing at about 2.5% a year.
Australia is also planning to invest $100 billion in renewable energy over the next five years, including an investment of $1 billion in the National Electricity Market.
US President Donald Trump announced the first-ever ‘global summit’ on climate change at the White House.
In Australia, the government announced plans for $10 billion in carbon capture to be built in the state of Victoria.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced the creation of a national network of ‘clean coal’ power stations, and plans to invest about $40 billion to expand the sector.
As part of its Climate Week 2020, the UN issued a report called ‘The Future of Climate Change’.
It warns that climate change is already threatening the livelihoods of billions of people and the planet is on track to warm up to the equivalent of three times the global average temperature by the end of the century.
More than 80% of the world’s population, including 1.6 billion people, live in countries where life expectancy is declining.
Nearly 50 million people will be living with climate-related stress by 2050, according to the report.
It also predicts that the global population will reach 9 billion by 2100, and is forecast to rise to 15 billion by 2050.
By then, it will have already exceeded the global GDP by nearly $1 trillion, the report says.
Meanwhile, a major study released by the University of California, Davis, has found that climate-change-related disasters have increased by about 1.8% a decade.
‘What the climate looks like’ is the title of a new book by a group of academics called The Climate Change Resistance Agenda.
The book is published by Penguin Random House.
The title is an adaptation to the climate crisis, and it is based on the work of the Australian scientist Paul Homewood.
Homewood has previously warned of the dangers of global warming and the consequences of inaction.
He has called for action to reduce carbon emissions and said climate change was causing the planet to heat up.
The book is called The Limits to Growth: How the Climate is Changing the World and How We Can Fight It.
The subtitle, ‘What the Climate Looks Like’, is an allusion to the term ‘peak oil’ which refers to the idea that the Earth is in a ‘peak’ in terms of energy supply and demand.
“The world is heading into a very challenging and uncertain time,” Homeworn said in a statement.
“As the world continues to warm, the impacts of climate change will increase in frequency and intensity.
We have to make a clear choice to adapt to the impacts, rather than to simply accept them.”
Homeworn’s research suggests that the world is already entering a period when it could be in a climate “peak” of warming of more than 2 degrees Celsius, the highest ever recorded.
In addition to the global climate crisis being the subject of a book by Homewoad, a documentary film about Homewight and his research, called The Uncertain Future, is due to be released in December.
