    Chinese home insulation blamed for gas emissions damaging the ozone layer

    The EIA says that its estimates of the amount of the gas being used in China are in the middle of the emissions range calculated by scientists in their report in May.

    Cut-price Chinese home insulation is being blamed for a massive rise in emissions of a gas, highly damaging to the Earth's protective ozone layer. The Environmental Investigations Agency (EIA) found widespread use of CFC-11 in China, even though the chemical was fully banned back in 2010.

    Climate change is increasingly notorious and alarming

    According to the World Bank, the losses linked to natural disasters will amount to 520 billion dollars a year and will drag 26 million people into poverty annually.

    The global climate perspective is darkened by a climate change that has accelerated in recent years and is becoming increasingly difficult to reverse. The ambitious temperature limits established in the Paris agreement are about to be overcome. Among its consequences, it is revealed that at least 26 million people will be dragged into poverty annually due to climatic causes and the retreat of the ice in the poles and mountain glaciers accelerates exponentially.

    CO2 emissions are making oceans more acidic and threatening sea life

    The “Biological Impacts of Ocean Acidification” and part of the German-led Bioacid program, finds that juvenile sea creatures will be especially harmed.

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are making oceans more acidic and threatening all sea life, a new scientific report claims. The eight-year study, called the “Biological Impacts of Ocean Acidification” and part of the German-led Bioacid program, finds that juvenile sea creatures will be especially harmed.
