LETTER TO THE EDITOR: B.C. hasn't managed forests properly

"...Old-growth forests are worth more standing than when they are logged. While they have an immediate economic impact in terms of tourism, they are even more important in terms of the environment: protecting side-hills from erosion, providing habitat for other forms of life and helping to ensure a safe water supply. Old-growth forests are part of the heritage that has been passed on to us and that we must pass on to future generations..."

Plan B: Decarbonize

"...Even though a few outlier countries spurned the accord, enough consensus was reached that it was time to act. By the time the Kyoto Protocol was signed in 1997, a road map had been created. Options were on the table – forest conservation could be paired with a transition off oil and gas..."

The Anthropocene Is Overrated

"...There is every reason to be alarmed about anthropogenic climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss, all of which have been accelerating in recent decades and do pose existential threats. Warming trends could cause the collapse of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets that would dramatically increase sea levels by dozens of feet by the end of this century. If that happens, say goodbye to New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, Mumbai, London, Istanbul, Dubai, St..."

US intelligence warns of dire climate consequences that biotech could ease

"...The 156-page “Global Trends 2040: A More Contested World” report, produced by the National Intelligence Council (NIC), predicts there will be more extreme storms, droughts and floods, as well as melting glaciers and ice caps. Rising sea levels will also accompany rising temperatures. The impact will disproportionately fall on the developing world and poorer regions and intersect with environmental degradation to create new vulnerabilities and exacerbate existing risks to economic prosperity, food, water, health and energy security..."

Scientists more confident projecting ENSO changes under global warming

"...Recently, the climate science community has found that ENSO's changes in fact strictly obey some basic physical mechanisms, which can reduce uncertainty in ENSO projections under greenhouse warming. "The saturation vapor pressure increases exponentially with the increase of temperature, so the same air temperature anomaly will lead to a larger saturation vapor pressure anomaly in a warmer climate," said lead author Dr. HU Kaiming from IAP..."

Saskatchewan Trucking Association criticizes Supreme Court ruling on carbon tax

"...The federal fuel charge came into effect on April 1, 2019 for several provinces including Saskatchewan. It is laid out in Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act. The rate reflects a carbon pollution price of $20 per tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2019, rising by $10 per tonne annually until it reaches $50 per tonne in 2022..."

Five things about Canada's proposed small modular nuclear reactors

"...SMRs are nuclear reactors that produce less than 300 megawatts of electricity. Because they are smaller than traditional nuclear power plants, which generally produce 800 MW and up, they are expected to be cheaper to build, scalable to meet specific industrial and remote community needs and, according to the report, will have the "potential" to be competitive with other low-carbon forms of energy..."

Canadian greenhouse emissions to use outsized portion of what climate can bear: study

"...New expert analysis suggests greenhouse gas emissions from Canada’s oil and gas industry will make up an outsized chunk of the remaining carbon the world’s atmosphere can take. Angela Carter of the University of Waterloo says Canadian government projections suggest oil and gas production will increase until 2050. She says those fossil fuels will use up 16 per cent of the globe’s so-called carbon budget — the amount of carbon that can be released and still keep global warming under 1..."

Federal ‘net-zero’ target puts crosshairs on oil and gas workers : op-ed

"...The Trudeau government wants to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Although more than 120 other countries have adopted the same target, Canada’s large oil and gas sector makes many workers particularly vulnerable. Indeed, a new study from TD estimates that 312,000 to 450,000 oil and gas workers are at risk of displacement..."

Trust must act on climate emergency declaration

"...An Oxford University publication from 2019 stated that coastal regions, islands and ecosystems “exist in a delicate balance at the land-sea interface,” making them exceptionally vulnerable to climate change impacts. The loss, degradation and conversion of native habitats, forest canopy, forest understory, and wetlands, reduces water storage, perpetuates water shortages, increases soil desiccation and erosion, increases flood and fire risk, increases temperatures and heat waves, perpetuates declines in biodiversity and weakens community resilience..."

Scientists program microalgae's 'oil factory' to produce various oils

"...So they added the genes for a similar TE enzyme pathway from a Cuphea plant - one that was good at boosting production of fatty acids with those mid-length chains. Protein engineers led by FENG Yanbin and XUE Song, now at Dalian University of Technology, tuned the enzymes so that fatty acids of a different chain length can be produced. The Cuphea genus is home to many species of plants also known for their oil production capabilities..."
