20 March 2023 - Scientists have delivered a 'final warning' on the climate crisis, as rising greenhouse gas emissions push the world to the brink of irrevocable damage that only swift and drastic action can avert.

'Alarming' rate of mountain forest loss a threat to alpine wildlife
17 March 2023 - An area of mountain forest larger than the state of Texas has been lost since 2001, with the amount disappearing each year accelerating at an 'alarming' rate, a study warns. Scientists found 78m hectares (193m acres) of mountain forest have been lost across the world in the past two decades, which is more than 7 percent of all that exists. The main drivers of loss were logging, the expansion of agriculture, and wildfires. Mountains are home to more than 85 percent of the world's birds, mammals, and amphibians. (more)

Florida beaches brace for 5,000-mile blob of seaweed to deposit rotting goop
17 March 2023 - It's brown, it weighs millions of tons, it stretches over 5,000 miles and it is headed for Florida's beaches. An enormous clump of seaweed circulating the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic is set to coat beaches in a spongy goop, bringing with it a pungent odor similar to rotting eggs. The huge mass of sargassum is the latest in a series of massive blooms scientists have noticed in the Atlantic since 2011 but could be the largest yet. ...The brown morass has doubled in size every month from November to January, forming a belt wider than the continental US. It is expected to hit beaches elsewhere in Florida and along the Gulf of Mexico this summer, potentially causing problems for tourists. (more)
