Global warming, climate change, the greenhouse effect, and carbon emissions only became mainstream terms relatively recently. So you’d be forgiven for thinking that the science behind climate change has only been understood for a short period.
Believe it or not though, the first scientific discoveries relating to the burning of fossil fuels and consequent impacts on the climate took place way back in the early nineteenth century. So who were these climate science pioneers? Let’s meet them.
A recent survey of 10,000 16 to 25 year olds from ten countries around the world found that 59% were very or extremely worried about climate change and 39% hesitant to have children due to the climate crisis. An astonishing 8 out of 10 believe that people have failed to care for the planet, with the majority agreeing they will have less opportunity than their parents as a result.
Over the next few months, world leaders have one last chance to prove these young people wrong. Two conferences will take place that are critical to the future of our planet – one on biodiversity and one on climate change. The UN Climate Change Conference will take place from 31 October to 12 November in Glasgow, Scotland, ahead of the UN Biodiversity Conference in Kunming, China from 25 April to 8 May 2022, with a preliminary session taking place from 11 to 15 October this year.
