n.96 Increase in heat stress predicted to bring productivity loss equivalent to 80 million jobs

Global warming is expected to result in an increase in work-related heat stress, damaging productivity and causing job and economic losses. The poorest countries will be worst affected. An increase in heat stress resulting from global warming is projected to lead to global productivity losses equivalent to 80 million full-time jobs in the year 2030, according to...

n.95 The global tree restoration potential

The restoration of forested land at a global scale could help capture atmospheric carbon and mitigate climate change. Bastin et al. used direct measurements of forest cover to generate a model of forest restoration potential across the globe (see the Perspective by Chazdon and Brancalion).

n.94 The Bonn Challenge

The Bonn Challenge is a global effort to bring 150 million hectares of the world’s deforested and degraded land into restoration by 2020, and 350 million hectares by 2030. It was launched in 2011 by the Government of Germany and IUCN, and later endorsed and extended by the New York Declaration on Forests at the 2014 UN...

n.92 Air Pollution and Noncommunicable Diseases

Air pollution poses a great environmental risk to health. Outdoor fine particulate matter (particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter < 2.5 μm) exposure is the fifth leading risk factor for death in the world, accounting for 4.2 million deaths and > 103 million disability-adjusted life years lost according to the Global Burden of Disease Report. The World Health...

n.91 Nuevo estudio descubre que un modesto impuesto al carbono dañaría a toda la humanidad para dos generaciones

Uno de los temas principales de mis escritos sobre el cambio climático en la IER ha sido advertir al público que la «ciencia del consenso» que están escuchando de los medios de comunicación, los expertos y ciertas figuras políticas está totalmente divorciada de la literatura publicada, especialmente cuando se trata del análisis económico de la política del...

n.89 Anthropogenic climate change and heat effects on health

Increasing extreme temperatures linked to human influence amplify thermal stress and can lead to decreases in work productivity and increases in heat‐related mortality. However, studies assessing in a formal statistical way the contribution of climate change to such impacts remain sparse. Link: https://rmets.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/joc.6104

n.88 Obesità, Denutrizione, Cambiamenti Climatici: Sindemia Globale, la sfida del ventunesimo secolo

Global Syndemic, che potremmo tradurre come Sindemia Globale, è l’interazione di tre pandemie che attualmente colpiscono il genere umano mettendone a grande rischio la salute: obesità, denutrizione e cambiamenti climatici.

n.87 UN expert condemns failure to address impact of climate change on poverty

Climate change will have the greatest impact on those living in poverty, but also threatens democracy and human rights, according to a UN expert. “Even if current targets are met, tens of millions will be impoverished, leading to widespread displacement and hunger,” said the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Philip Alston, in a...
