Global Warming: 5 good news by experts and scientists about climate change 

In my classes on climate change, I teach what it has done. I think it’s a fantastic climate story,” says the chair of the Department of Physics and Earth Sciences at Framingham State University in the United States.

Nenquimo led an indigenous campaign that led to a decision by the Constitutional Court of Ecuador to protect 500,000 hectares of Amazon rainforest from oil extraction.

“I think delivering positive news and creating a sense of hope has never been more relevant,” said Vanessa Perez-Serrera, deputy director of Global Climate and Energy Practice at the World Wide Fund for Nature.

“The hope is that, without giving up a sense of urgency, it is possible to accelerate solutions that allow us to keep 1.5 degrees alive. We are at the moment right now when we can. 

Environmental economists specializing in climate policy and energy transition refer to calls by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to limit global temperature rise to a maximum of 1.5 °C.

“Climate researchers haven’t lost hope,” The Conversation noted in the article “Climate Change: Six Positive News from 2019,” in which they asked experts to highlight six positive stories about climate change from that year.

As the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) begins in Glasgow on 1 November, we explore some of the positive aspects of the fight against a problem that is already having a devastating impact on millions of lives.

Singh is a member of the Climate Imagination Fellowship, an Arizona State University project, which seeks positive stories about the future to take action in the present.

The first thing that alerts me is how to use the word “positive” in the context of climate change.

“The way I like to use that word is from the point of view of people who are already fighting, who have already been hit by the apocalypse, whether we are talking about indigenous, global The South’s poor, people of color or many women who have been disproportionately affected by climate change,” he explains.

” They are in worse shape than most of us. And yet, I think that hope comes not only because there are alternative technologies already in place, but because of the same communities.”

Climate change, the authors also point out, is not the only socio-environmental problem we have: loss of biodiversity is just another and adds to tremendous social inequality.

“When we look at the climate problem from this broader perspective and look at other crises and how they interrelate, we realize that they have similar roots,” he says.

And it points to a “globalized social economy, a system that fundamentally destroys the rest of nature because it sees it, as well as large numbers of people, as disposable and less important.”

But if we fight against these scourges, we will solve many other problems plaguing humanity. And that’s a positive for me: it’s a project of true happiness for all.”

 

“The greatest source of positivity is people’s energy.”
