A new study conducted by researchers at the University College of London Institute for Sustainable Resources has identified which fossil fuel reserves need to remain unused if the widely agreed upon 2°C warming limit is not to be exceeded.
The researchers at UCL found that worldwide, over 80% of all current coal reserves, half of gas reserves, and a third of oil reserves must remain in the ground and not be burnt if the 2°C target is to be stayed within. These figures will surprise many people as strikingly high and bring into sharp focus the magnitude of the challenge that the global community faces.
New data from NASA has shown that the hole in the ozone layer above Antarctica has remained at a more a less constant size for the last several years, despite scientists predicting that it would continue to shrink.
The hole in the layer of gas that protects the surface of the Earth from ultraviolet radiation remains at around the same levels as 2010. Until this point it had been contracting steadily ever since the chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which initially caused the hole, were banned at the Montreal Protocol in 1989.
