Net Zero Emissions by 2050: Is the EU Moving Fast Enough?
September 9, 2021
Given that all areas of modern human life, including our mobility (cars, trucks, trains), our energy (power plants) and our buildings (heating, electricity) still depend to a significant degree on fossil fuels like oil and gas, the net zero target implies far reaching changes within a generation. Changes of this magnitude and speed have so far hardly ever been seen in human history.

The impact of climate change on Kenya's Tana River Basin
July 23, 2021
Many species within Kenya’s Tana River Basin will be unable to survive if global temperatures continue to rise as they are on track to do – according to new research from the University of East Anglia.
A new study published in the journal PLOS ONE today outlines how remaining within the goals of the Paris Agreement would save many species.
The research also identifies places that could be restored to better protect biodiversity and contribute towards global ecosystem restoration targets.
