What is hope in a world of changing climates?
Hope in a Changing Climate is a documentary co-produced by The Open University and the Environmental Education Media Project (EEMP) for BBC World News. It reframes the debate on global warming by illustrating that large, decimated ecosystems can be restored.
What happens if we change Liu?
Liu. major project is restoring fertility and hope to China’s Loess Plateau, until recently one of the poorest regions of the country. Centuries of continuous agriculture have removed the trees and leaving land vulnerable to erosion from wind and rain.
How did John Liu transform the Loess Plateau?
In 1995 he filmed the Loess Plateau in China, which was being transformed from a barren and eroded ground into an oasis by the government. At this point Liu noticed the possibility of humans restoring ecosystems, rather than only destroying them.
Can climate change be stopped?
Yes. While we cannot stop global warming overnight, or even over the next several decades, we can slow the rate and limit the amount of global warming by reducing human emissions of heat-trapping gases and soot (“black carbon”). Once this excess heat radiated out to space, Earth’s temperature would stabilize.
Why should I fight climate change?
Why do we need to fight against climate change? Global warming could among other things cause extreme climatic events, more severe droughts, floods, and rising sea levels. Such changes could in turn generate negative consequences in terms of food production, water supplies, and human health.
What caused the Loess Plateau to become so degraded?
Home to more than 50 million people, the Loess Plateau in China’s Northwest takes its name from the dry powdery wind-blown soil. Centuries of overuse and overgrazing led to one of the highest erosion rates in the world and widespread poverty.
Where is the Loess Plateau located?
The Loess Plateau is a highland region in north-central China with average elevation about 1,200 m. It has the thickest known loess deposits in the world.
Is climate change bad 2020?
According to NOAA, as of October 7, 2020, there have been 16 weather/ climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion each to affect the US. These included one drought event, eleven severe storms, three tropical cyclones, and one wildfire, resulting in 188 deaths and significant economic effects.

What would happen if climate change stopped?
To illustrate the risk of insufficient scientific communication, if all greenhouse gas emissions were to be completely stopped starting this year, the public would expect immediate, rapid declines in global warming. However, temperatures are projected to rise at an accelerated pace for at least 13 more years.
