Biodiversity loss is driven by economic growth: Prof. Julia Steinberger

Low Impact

Dave Darby talks with Julia Steinberger, professor of ecological economics at the University of Leeds and a member of the IPCC, about her work and the links between biodiversity loss and economic growth. There’s also a lot of research on biodiversity loss and its links to economic growth.

How Reusing Items Can Help The Environment

The Environmental Blog

The state of our environment today is due to the broadening issues arising from loss of biodiversity, inappropriate means of disposing of waste , overpopulation, the depletion of natural resources, and increased deforestation. These affect natural habitats, produces acid rain and destroys the ozone layer because of global warming. These gases weaken our ozone layer and cause a lot of pollution and climatic changes.

Applying science and healthcare principles to soil wellness can help our planet

More biodiversity is in the earth beneath our feet than in all above ground ecosystems combined. Take the phase-out and eventual ban on methyl bromide , a fumigant used to control pests in agriculture and shipping: Methyl bromide used to be injected into the ground to sterilize the soil before crops are planted, with 50 to 95 percent of it eventually entering the atmosphere and depleting the ozone layer, until it was phased out from 1994 to 2005. .

Event - Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability

Green Market Oracle

Much of the sustainability literature focuses on the Global North and on issues salient to policy makers in developed countries, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and ozone depletion. Sixteenth International Conference on Environmental, Cultural, Economic & Social Sustainability will take place on January 29-31, 2020 at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile & University of Chile, Santiago, Chile.

Planetary Boundaries, Food and Humanity

Unsustainable

The main drivers of change are the demand for food, water, and natural resources, in the face of severe biodiversity loss and changes in ecosystem services. The nine planetary Boundaries are: Stratospheric ozone: filters ultraviolet rays (UVR) coming from the sun, which would otherwise place the system is at risk. Biosphere (biodiversity) integrity: infinite human activities affecting eco-systems risk disintegration of natural biodiversity.

How the UK's net zero mission reaches all the way to Antarctica

Business Green

It has revealed that human activities have been the dominant force of global climate change since the mid-20th century, underlined by the discovery, more than 30 years ago, of the Ozone Hole over Halley and Faraday Research Stations on Antarctica by scientists at British Antarctic Survey. That includes our work in Antarctica through the British Antarctic Survey, whose research programme on climate change, biodiversity and space weather is recognised internationally for its excellence.

Four Reasons Why 2020 Will be a Make or Break Year for Environmental Action

Green Market Oracle

In October, delegates from more than 190 countries will attend the Biodiversity Summit in Kunming, China to finalize and sign a new international agreement to protect biodiversity. However, we have not succeeded in achieving Aichi goal 20, which calls for an increase in the financial resources to protect biodiversity. Anderson is a professor of atmospheric chemistry who is best know for his work on chlorofluorocarbons and the Ozone Layer.
