Our water resources and freshwater ecosystems are in danger
Newly released study shows that the average ecosystem will need to shift a quarter of a mile each year in order to stay in its ideal temperature range.
Reduction of the rainforests, continued growth in hydrocarbon industries, increases in livestock, and depletion of the ozone are all considered factors in the debate.
A temperature rise of no more than 2 °C is widely acknowledged as the ‘safe’ level to avoid dangerous climate change.
A new map illustrating the global consequences of failing to keep temperature change to under 2 °C was launched today by the UK Government, in partnership with the Met Office.
