„Since the presentation of the European Green Deal in December there’s been much ado about the promised “Climate Law”. Expected by the 4th[nbsp]of March, it promises to “write into law the goal set out in the European Green Deal – for Europe’s economy and society to become climate-neutral by 2050”. It offers an unprecedented opportunity for Europe to become the global leader on tackling climate change. For this to become a reality, however, the “Climate Law” needs to be done right.“
„In this webinar, Matthew Nisbet, Northeastern University, Angela Anderson, Union of Concerned Scientists, Jan Mazurek, ClimateWorks, and Hunter Cutting, Climate Nexus will look at the challenges associated with communicating about the need for and options associated with carbon removal. This webinar will be moderated by Simon Nicholson, co-director of the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy.“

„To stimulate its sustained uptake as a subject within the ESG research program, we identify significant contributions thus far by ESG scholars on the subject of solar geoengineering governance and survey the wider solar geoengineering governance literature from the perspective of the new ESG research framework. Based on this analysis, we also suggest specific potential lines of inquiry that we believe are ripe for research by ESG scholars: nonstate actors’ roles, polycentricity, public engagement and participation, and the Anthropocene.“

Yang, Hu; Lohmann, Gerrit; Krebs‐Kanzow, Uta; Ionita, Monica; Shi, Xiaoxu; Sidorenko, Dmitry et al. (2020): Poleward shift of the major ocean gyres detected in a warming climate. In Geophys. Res. Lett. DOI: 10.1029/2019GL085868.
„Here, based on satellite observations of sea surface height and sea surface temperature, we find a consistent poleward shift of the major ocean gyres. Due to strong natural variability, most of the observed ocean gyre shifts are not statistically significant, implying that natural variations may contribute to the observed trends. However, climate model simulations forced with increasing greenhouse gases suggest that the observed shift is most likely to be a response of global warming.“
„Over the past 40 years, the world’s eight major ocean gyres (wind-driven current systems) have steadily shifted toward the poles, according to new research published in an American Geophysical Union (AGU) journal.“
