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..."

A more complete account

"...Previous work led by her mentors, Armand Kuris and Kevin Lafferty in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, found that parasites were common in estuarine food webs. But Morton wanted to tackle a more diverse ecosystem. Given the body of research conducted on California's kelp forests, she thought it would be easy enough to simply add parasites and small, free-living invertebrates to an existing network..."

Thawing permafrost cools Arctic currents: This might affect fish stocks

"...Together with researchers from the US Geological Survey Alaska Science Center, Associate Professor Ylva Sjöberg of UCPH's Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management has shed new light on this cold water. The study's researchers discovered that thawing permafrost causes groundwater to run deeper, where it becomes cooler than when it flows near the soil surface..."

New documentation: Old-growth forest carbon sinks overestimated

"..."The climate mitigation effect of unmanaged forests with trees more than 200 years old is estimated to be at least one-third too high--and is based solely upon their own data, which, incidentally, is subject to great uncertainty. Thus, the basis for the article's conclusions is very problematic," explains Professor Per Gundersen, of the University of Copenhagen's Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management..."

Strengthening water resources planning in East Africa

"...East Africa is the world's fastest growing region outside of Asia, with an estimated growth of 5% and above over the last decade. Part of this success can likely be attributed to the East Africa Vision 2050, which was launched in 2015 by the Heads of States of the East African Community (EAC) - an intergovernmental organization composed of six countries in the African Great Lakes region in eastern Africa. If the region's rapid development were to continue in a sustainable manner, it will have beneficial impacts for the entire African continent..."

DFO decision to ban frozen spot prawns criticized as unreasonable

"...“If this is truly about better resource management, DFO should be working with independent fish harvesters to design a solution that will achieve conservation objectives while also avoiding harm to the many coastal residents and families … this fishery supports,” Tasha Sutcliffe said in a statement. Sutcliffe is senior fisheries adviser with Ecotrust Canada, an organization that helps rural, remote, and Indigenous communities build more sustainable economies..."

A decision by Fisheries and Oceans Canada to make the practice of tubbing and selling frozen-at-sea prawn tails illegal threaten

"...Tasha Sutcliffe, Senior Advisor, Community Fisheries, Ecotrust Canada: “As an organization that believes in the local economic, social, and cultural value of small boat fisheries tied to their communities — a group our fisheries program aims to support — Ecotrust Canada is shocked to hear that DFO has decided that it is now illegal to freeze prawn tails in tubs for the local market. If this is truly about better resource management, DFO should be working with independent fish harvesters to design a solution that will achieve conservation objectives while also avoiding harm to the many coastal residents and families whose enterprises this fishery supports. Prawn harvesters also want to have a well-managed sustainable fishery and have asked DFO to work with them on this issue..."

Irrigation management key for bioenergy production to mitigate climate change

"..."According to existing scenarios, biomass plantations could increase by up to 6 million square kilometers if global warming is to be limited to 1. 5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, the more ambitious of the two temperature targets of the Paris Agreement," says co-author Dieter Gerten from PIK. "We use these scenario inputs to run simulations in our high-resolution global vegetation and water balance model to explore the freshwater implications..."
