Climate Change – GBRI
 

Rising sea levels, extreme weather conditions, severe floods and droughts, rapidly depleting glaciers – all these events taking place across the globe are inter-related, and all these interconnections are revealing changes that may not be obvious at first glance. A research published by a team of top scientists from China and Brazil astonishingly found that rising temperatures […]

The United Nations has warned in its recent report that extreme weather conditions are the key force behind a rise in global hunger levels. As climate change negatively impacts crop production and causes floods and droughts in the developing world, the number of hungry people facing chronic food deprivation is rising. “This message today should […]

Trees, as a species, are heading towards west in search of wetter climates. Some species, such as evergreens, are migrating towards the Poles where the climate is cooler. But for the most part, “tree migrations are moisture related,” said Songlin Fei, associate professor at Purdue’s University’s department of forestry and natural resources, who has studied […]

According to a study published in the 14 August 2018 edition of Nature Communications, 2018–2022 are expected to be abnormally hot years based on current global warming. Warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions is not linear: it appears to have lapsed in the early 21st century, a phenomenon known as a global warming hiatus. The study, led by […]

The North China plain is one of the most densely populated regions in the world and is also agriculturally very important for the nation. A new study has found that if we are unable to control climate change, this region would face the deadliest heatwaves by the end of the century that might render it […]

A new study has found a link between increasing global temperatures and higher rates of suicides. Over the last three decades, there have been 60,000 climate change-related suicides in India alone. The links between mental health and global warming have not been widely researched but the new work analysed temperature and suicides across the US […]

A new study has found that if the world became warmer by 1.5 degree Celsius due to climate change, it would bring stronger winds and as a result, more wind power. The study undertaken by the British Antarctic Survey, the University of Oxford and the University of Bristol aimed to find out the effect warmer […]
