A new study carried out at UC Santa Barbara's National Center of Ecological Analysis and Synthesis and published this week in the journal Science examines how fast animal and plant populations would need to move to keep up with recent climate change in the ocean and on land.
Wild population movement rates needed to outrun climate change? 2.7 kilometers per year on land and 2.2 kilometers per year in the oceans.
Climate change is a human problem. Suggested topic areas for the moderators of a Republican debate include:
8.Do you consider climate change a national security issue? If not, as president, what will you say to the president of the Maldives when he tells you that emissions of greenhouse gases by China and the United States threaten the very existence of his country because of rising sea levels?
To mitigate climate change we should reduce GHG emissions. To adapt to the impacts of sea level rise, we need careful land use choices and adaptable infrastructure. Coastal vegetation such as mangroves can help reduce the impacts of flooding. Conservation of coral reefs also plays a huge role in protecting atolls.
