World shift to clean energy is unstoppable, IEA report says

Education, International, Science & Technology
The world is on an "unstoppable" shift towards renewable energy but the phase down of fossil fuels is not happening quickly enough, a new report says. The International Energy Agency, the global energy watchdog, predicted renewables would provide half of the world's electricity by 2030. But it warned that emissions were still too high to prevent temperatures rising above a key threshold of 1.5C. And the report said investment in fossil fuels needed to be cut in half. What is net zero and how are the UK and other countries doing?Record surge in days over key 1.5C warming limit The Paris-based energy agency's report, released on Tuesday, was not all doom and gloom. It praised the significant progress countries had made in expanding renewable energy and supporting consumers wi...

Italy floods leave 13 dead and force 13,000 from their homes

International
More than 20 rivers have burst their banks in Italy, leaving 13 people dead and forcing thousands from their homes after six months’ rainfall fell in a day and a half. More bodies were found on Thursday after almost every river flooded between Bologna and the north-east coast 115km (70 miles) away. Some 280 landslides have taken place. The mayor of Ravenna, a city badly affected by flooding, told the BBC it was the worst disaster in a century. Michele de Pascale described the damage caused by the floods as catastrophic, costing people in his city and the wider region their homes, possessions and for some, their lives. “It was a very bad 48 hours. Water and mud took over our whole village,” said Roberta Lazzarini, 71. Her home of Botteghino di Zocca, south of Bologna, was...

Climate change worsens 58% of human diseases – Research

International, World News
Climate change is causing more than 58% of human diseases to worsen according to a new study. Climate change is affecting 218 of the 375 diseases studied, bringing people closer to pathogens and weakening their immune systems. “For instance, failure of the human immune system to adjust to large changes in temperature was suggested as a likely mechanism to explain outbreaks of influenza. Likewise, stress, via changes in cortisol and down-regulation of inflammatory response, can reduce the body’s capacity to cope with diseases.” Heatwaves have been linked to an increase in the spread of waterborne diseases such as Vibrio and gastroenteritis, according to researchers at Mamoa’s University of Hawaii. “The compilation of pathogenic diseases aggravated by climatic hazards repres...
