Welcome to our SnippETS newsletter.
In this edition of SnippETS we kick things off with the most important current topic in climate news: the latest IPCC report on climate change. The news is that it is a mammoth task, but if we take action now, we can still have a positive impact.
We follow with a story about how citizens are suing their government to get action on climate change.
Next, we move into forest conservation and restoration; blockchain chickens and differences between dietary choices.
We finish with a couple of articles that discuss actions that China and Indonesia are taking to crack down on illegal fishing.
Last week the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a Special Report on Global Warming (SR15). The report warned that serious action needed to be taken in order to reach the UN’s target of limiting warming to 1.5 ºC. It’s a very long and exhaustive report on the topic but luckily we have come across and concise slideshow summary that covers the report in 10 pictures and charts.
