Posted by Maria Beatrice Barberis on

Among the very heavy environmental, economic and human damage from Hurricane Ida, one must also count hundreds of oil spills. Hurricane Ida, with its winds of up to 240 kilometers per hour, struck an area dense with oil platforms at sea and refineries on land. Currently, 88% of offshore production is at a standstill and about a hundred platforms have remained deserted. All this while the U.S. Coast Guard is working on 350 separate reports of oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico.

Amazon rainforest day

Posted by Maria Beatrice Barberis on

The Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical forest on Earth, with the highest density of plant and animal species anywhere. This impressive region provides essential ecological services, stabilizing the world’s rainfall patterns and storing massive amounts of carbon that mitigate climate change.  Spanning nine South American countries and 2.5 million square miles, the Amazon represents over half of the world’s remaining rainforest. Its moist, tropical vegetation stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Andes Mountains in the west, a reflection of the high rainfall, high humidity and high temperatures that prevail in the region year-round. Running through...

This summer's wildfires killed millions of bees

Posted by Maria Beatrice Barberis on

This summer's devastating fires are also resulting in very serious losses of bees, both wild and bred. The numbers of losses are enormous and threaten to undermine the work of beekeepers.  Agronomists and environmentalists believe it will take at least 15 years to rebuild forested areas destroyed by the fires. Some hives that survived the fires have already resumed producing honey, and farmers who suffered damage have no plans to stop.  The reconstruction after the fires passes through the welfare of the fauna, represented until recently also by millions of bees, which have become innocent victims of the recent fires....

All the most resilient nations are islands in temperate latitudes.

Posted by Maria Beatrice Barberis on

A study on the adverse effects of climate change on societies took into account several factors: extreme weather events, droughts, floods and the impact of population movements forced to migrate in order to survive. Some nations have more favorable starting conditions than others when it comes to climate change adaptation. Islands located in temperate latitudes with strong oceanic influence have the greatest likelihood that relatively stable conditions will continue despite the effects of global warming. When a nation finds itself unable to adapt, the research points out that it faces a concatenation of disasters, in which the first to occur...
