Blistering heat sends mercury above 40C 2.7.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

Continental Europe has had blistering heat over the past week, with Spain and Portugal becoming particularly hot. Of Spain’s 50 provinces 43 were put on alert for exceptionally high temperatures, with the mercury widely topping 40C (104F), and some places experiencing temperatures as high as 44C.

The intense heat has also increased the potential for forest fires; woodlands, within a large area, are considered at extreme risk of catching alight. The heat-wave is expected to spread and persist for much of Europe over the coming days.

More evidence that global warming is intensifying extreme weather | John Abraham 1.7.2015 Guardian: Environment
A new study finds that global warming is causing weather whiplash. Just this week, a new article appeared in the journal Nature that provides more evidence of a connection between extreme weather and global warming. This falls on the heels of last week’s article which made a similar connection. So, what is new with the second paper? A lot. Extreme weather can be exacerbated by global warming either because the currents of atmosphere and oceans change, or it can be exacerbated through thermodynamics (the interaction of heat, energy, moisture, etc.). Last week’s study dealt with thermodynamics, this week’s study dealt with atmospheric currents. So they approached the problem ...

Will Filipinos have to abandon Manila to climate change? - video 29.6.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
When Typhoon Ketsana struck Manila in 2009, causing $1.09bn in damage and 747 deaths, it captured headlines and a flurry of emergency aid. But extreme flooding now appears to be the new normal in the Philippines, which was battered by so many storms last year that they exceeded the letters in the alphabet . Climate change and environmental degradation have increased the frequency of flooding along the Marikina and Nagka rivers, with evacuations disrupting daily life in the capital for months of what's become an annual flood season. As the peak of the rainy season approaches, we spoke with Manuel A Abinales, founder and president of aid organization Buklod Tao, who lives and works in this community, helping to respond quickly when river levels rise. For local residents like Tony Iburan, life has become increasingly difficult and dangerous as the water slowly eats away at the community. Continue ...

Is science policy a theological matter? 23.6.2015 Guardian: Environment
Roger Pielke Jr: With his latest statement on science, technology and the environment, Pope Francis has sought to change the debate on climate change. But his statement has broader significance for the way we think about the future. The Encyclical Letter Laudato Si’ released by Pope Francis last week has generated a wide range of reactions ranging from enthusiastic praise to uneasy criticism . For some, the Pope’s key message was about climate change , for others about the downsides of economic growth , and some saw in it a reconciliation of science and religion . But the Encyclical also lays bare a debate much larger than each of these perspectives, one that is fundamentally about what kind of world we want to inhabit. The Pope’s message is just the latest intervention in a debate over technologies that has been going on for centuries. Pope Francis writes of the “human roots of the ecological crisis” defined in terms of deference to a “technocratic paradigm” which contains “the deepest roots of our ...
