Recent climate change does not have the same impact anywhere in the world. In fact, there are regions that are most affected by its effects., both from a social and economic point of view. In general, we talk about an increase of heat waves, sea level rise and soil aridity, and an increase in diseases transmissible to humans. All of this could get worse in the future and the scenarios are certainly not positive. If we weren't talking about global warming, you could say it doesn't rain but it pours. Gli effetti peggiori dei cambiamenti climatici si vedono infatti nei paesi in via di [...]

The climate has changed, Time is up. The twenty-sixth edition of the annual Conference of Parties (COP26), literally "Conference of the Parties", starts this week in Glasgow (Scotland), in collaboration between the UK and Italy. The conference is held one year after the originally scheduled date, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, e si prefigge obiettivi a dir poco ambiziosi. Della COP abbiamo già parlato qualche mese fa in occasione del rientro degli USA nell'Accordo di Parigi, but perhaps it is appropriate to refresh the subject. In summary, the COP has been organized every year since 1995 dalle Nazioni Unite, nell’ambito della [...]

The United States is finally part of the Paris climate agreement. Ready, to the posts, via. Just established, la nuova amministrazione a stelle e strisce di Joe Biden ha fatto rientrare gli USA nell'accordo sul clima di Parigi. This is a nice change of pace from Donald Trump's previous administration, who had decided to leave that agreement. For the occasion, climate expert Ed Hawkins has produced a special version of his famous warming stripes. Despite what some people think, the Paris Agreement does not only concern the citizens of the French capital, but all of us. But one question is legitimate: what's this [...]

Volcanic gases and their effect on the earth's climate

Negli ultimi anni il tema del cambiamento climatico è divenuto sempre più importante e presente nella vita quotidiana di tutti: lo sfruttamento dei combustibili fossili e le attività industriali hanno provocato un eccessiva produzione di gas serra che, decennio dopo decennio, stanno portando ad una mutazione sempre più radicale ed irreversibile del clima terrestre. Un ruolo di spicco nell’evoluzione dell’atmosfera lo hanno sicuramente avuto i vulcani; si reputa, indeed, che alcune delle maggiori estinzioni di massa siano state provocate da mutamenti climatici indotti da immense eruzioni vulcaniche. Anche la più “recente” piccola era glaciale, avvenuta tra il XVI e il [...]
