(WORLDWIDE) #ClimateChange Scientific American Report: Microbes hidden in permafrost layers may still contain ancient microbes, Pleistocene megafauna and even buried smallpox victims as the earth is warming including millions of years of carbon are buried that could be released into the air according to Scientific American #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsRepor – Nov.21: Permafrost covers 24 percent of the Earth’s land surface, and the soil constituents vary with local geology: Arctic lands offer unexplored microbial biodiversity and microbial feedbacks, including the release of carbon to the atmosphere. In some locations, hundreds of millions of years’ worth of carbon is buried:

The layers may still contain ancient frozen microbes, Pleistocene megafauna and even buried smallpox victims: As the permafrost thaws with increasing rapidity, scientists’ emerging challenge is to discover and identify the microbes, bacteria and viruses that may be stirring. Some of these microbes are known to scientists. Methanogenic Archaea, for example metabolize soil carbon to release methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Other permafrost microbes (methanotrophs) consume methane. The balance between these microbes plays a critical role in determining future climate warming. Others are known but have unpredictable behavior after release……

It is clear that the warmer we make the Arctic, the weirder it will get, as temperatures at the surface become more extreme and thawing deepens: With the coalescence of microbes reawakening from the deep and surface conditions unprecedented in human history, it is challenging to assess risks accurately without improved Arctic microbial datasets. We should pay attention to both known unknowns, such as antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and unknown unknowns, including the potential risks from the resurrection of ancient and poorly described viral genomes from Arctic ice by synthetic biologists:

For all of these reasons, we must come up with guidelines for future Arctic research. As travel through the region increases, the likelihood of pathogen export and import rises as well: The planetary protection guidelines that space agencies follow to prevent interplanetary contamination can provide a framework for how microbial investigation can safely continue. Biosurveillance measures must be put into place to protect communities in the Arctic and beyond. As the Arctic continues to transform, one thing is clear: as climate change warms this microbial repository during the 21st century, the full range of consequences is yet to be told:

(MADRID, Spain.) #COP25 SUMMIT REPORT: Not Chile due to unrest caused by corrupt politicians caused by BUSINESS COMPANIES & CORPORATION ….NOW #COP20-25 and 5yrs has gone by and still talk is CHEAP NO PROFIT as we are told we are NO further forward and #ClimateChange is NOW A REALITY ..that’s IT #AceNewsDesk says ………

#AceNewsReport – Dec.02: Editor says here we go again and with more protests and children climbing on the already full bandwagon is it not time to stop shouting ‘ STOP #CLIMATECHANGE but actually prepare for a future that has ALREADY been DAMAGED …We are the caretakers over this domain given to us and CARE AND LOVE is what we should apply not a ‘ sticking plaster ‘ but that means the whole world changing and nobody saying NOT ME ! ..Remember promises and commitments in Lima at #COP20 ……………………………..http://www.cop20lima.org/about/cop20.1.html

EuroNews reported: More than 50 world leaders have gathered for the 2019 United Nations Climate Change (COP25) conference at Madrid’s IFEMA convention centre. The event was supposed to take place in Chile but was moved due to civil unrest in the country: The Climate Summit, which should lay the framework for a new phase of climate action, starts today in the Spanish capital. #COP25 is the last UN Climate Summit before 2020, when many nations must submit new climate action plans.

“In Chile and the world we are experiencing social and environmental crises. In order to face them, we must return to our roots: we must listen to each other to rebuild trust and dialogue with a willingness to change”, explained Chilean environmental minister Carolina Schmidt.

Climate and equality:

Schmidt, who will preside over the negotiations during the summit, claimed that the way climate change affects the world is “unfair” as it mainly hurts vulnerable people, communities and countries.

US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi also mentioned that the climate crisis should be addressed in terms of “economic and environmental justice for all”. “We all believe that we have a moral responsibility to future generations to pass on this planet in a better way, the best possible way”, Pelosi said during the opening ceremony.

Ursula is official:

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is attending Madrid’s conference as her first official act. Von der Leyen has set high targets in the European Union’s policy to combat climate change, pledging to reduce the bloc’s carbon emissions by at least 50% by 2030.

On Sunday, her first day at the helm, she repeated to journalists her objective to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, meaning carbon emissions should be fully offset by measures that cut CO2, like planting trees.

Guest list:

The presidents of Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras and the Dominican Republic; the prime minister of Morocco, Saadeddine Othmani and Prince Albert of Monaco are some of the leaders that will be present this year.

Before the official opening, Spain’s acting Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez will meet the heads of state and government of the EU countries and the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres. During the afternoon, he will meet the leaders from Latin America.

(NETHERLANDS, Amsterdam.) #ClimateChange Thousands of Protestors on Sunday hit the streets over their waterlogged European country is expected to be especially vulnerable to the rising tides brought as much of the country already sits below sea level, and some of its land is sinking #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Mar.12: Tens of thousands of people joined a climate change protest in Amsterdam on Sunday, urging the Dutch government to take action on climate change.The demonstration, the first of its kind in the Netherlands, drew around 40,000 people despite heavy rain, according to Agence France-Presse.“The high turnout is the proof that people now want a decisive policy on climate from the government,” Greenpeace, one of the march organizers, said in a statement.🤩🤩🤩40,000 march in the rain in Amsterdam to call for action on #climatechange@klimaatmars @GreenpeaceNL pic.twitter.com/gtuXtHHpYD— Greenpeace EU (@GreenpeaceEU) March 10, 2019The waterlogged European country is expected to be especially vulnerable to the rising tides brought on by climate change. Much of the country already sits below sea level, and some of its land is sinking.

Dutch lawmakers have passed ambitious climate change laws, seeking a 95 percent reduction of the 1990 emissions levels by 2050: But according to some in the country, the action isn’t happening fast enough…………………In January, a Dutch environmental research agency said the government is lagging behind its goals.“We are under sea level, so we really need to do something about it,” demonstrator Esther Leverstein, a 21-yer-old climate studies student at Amsterdam University, told AFP.

Students around the world have been leading protests to prompt their governments to address climate change: A worldwide school strike is planned for later this week. Greta Thungerg, a Swedish teenager widely known for her climate change activism, said on Twitter that at least 82 countries plan to participate in the upcoming protest.
