Species in polar regions hard hit by climate change Many species will become extinct as a consequence of global warming. This is the prediction of a mathematical model developed by Swedish researchers. The simulations show that climate change will have a particularly large impact on ecosystems in polar regions, mirroring changes that can already be seen in the natural world.

Effectively removing CO2 from the atmosphere Researchers have investigated the extent to which direct capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the ambient air can help to effectively remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. The result: with careful planning, for example with regard to location and provision of the necessary energy, CO2 can be removed in a climate-effective manner. The researchers have published their analysis in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.

Achieving equitable access to energy in a changing climate Access to modern, reliable, and affordable energy services is a must for development and ensuring a decent quality of life. Researchers used a novel bottom-up approach to analyze how access to energy services may evolve over time under different scenarios of socioeconomic growth and policy scenarios that meet climate mitigation goals.

Citizen support for climate action In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, Europeans remain very concerned about climate change and support action across the EU to tackle it, according to the latest Eurobarometer survey by the European Commission. European citizens now identify climate change as the single most serious problem facing the world. A majority of the respondents agrees that adapting to the adverse impacts of climate change can have positive outcomes for citizens in the EU.
