Climate Change Update
The Copenhagen Conference is underway, but 2009 has already been an eventful year
The newspapers are currently packed with climate change stories. Since we ran our first annual climate change update in 2003, this subject has become one of the most widely-reported topics in the media.
The initial controversy (“is climate change happening?”) has died down and far more column-inches are now being devoted to analysis of the emerging impacts of climate change as well as mitigation efforts.
In the shadow of the Copenhagen conference – the biggest governance landmark since Kyoto in 1997 - we summarise some of the more newsworthy recent global warming stories.
This report has been prepared for students sitting GCSE, AS or A2 examinations that contain a climate change component.
