The air pollution that lingered over eastern China for nearly a month in 2013 has been linked to the loss of Arctic sea ice the previous autumn.
A study says the haze lasted much longer because the melting ice and increased snowfall altered wind circulation patterns. If Arctic ice continues to shrink due to climate change, the scientists say similar events will likely recur.

"My identity as a person before motherhood has been obliterated. I have glimpsed that other country, that scary Handmaid’s Tale one, where women are nothing but vessels and slaves. I have experienced unkindness of the sort only doled out to third-class citizens. I may be a lucky mother of a happy child, but I have glimpsed what lies beneath our civilised veneer and it frightened me enough to...

OK, so Earth Hour is a good symbol of our need as species to reduce our personal consumption ... and we're sure that it makes people feel great that they supported it. But our impact is a function of our choices in technology; our personal consumption and (not least ... probably most!) the number of us on the planet who are doing the consuming. Let's get contraception, family planning...

All new humans will compound and suffer through our climate predicament. We add 240,000 a day as net growth.

"According to this study, the tropics, which are the near-equatorial region of this planet that’s almost 100% impoverished, and that has thus contributed virtually nothing to global warming, will begin the period of permanent catastrophe starting in approximately 2020; but the (cooler)...

UK Green Party policy states "The number of people on the planet, their levels of consumption and their local and global impacts are key factors determining how far the Earth's ability to renew its resources and to support all life is compromised.
