MICRO-PLASTIC POLLUTION

How much plastic is your washing machine sending out to sea?

This article by Ok, but how relevant is this? 100,000 people produce ca. 1.02 kilograms of fibers daily, i.e. about 359,7kg of plastic shreds every year.

Here’s another article by The Guardian on this.

Here are some research articles on this:
(1) a review of microplastic contaminants in marine ecosystem.
(2) origins of microplastic in the ocean and their impact.
(3) methodology in studying how microplastic pollution in the ocean gets into the food chain.
(4) suggests a model to asses the impact of microplastic pollution in the ocean
(5) discusses the issue of food safety and human health in the light of microplastic pollution in the ocean

CLIMATE CHANGE AND MIGRATION

Here’s an article by National Geographic on human migration in historical perspective:
Human migration sparked by wars, disasters, and now climate

Here’s another article by National Geographic on future human migration due to climate change:
143 Million People May Soon Become Climate Migrants

Here’s a paper (2018) by four scientists (K.F. DavisA. BhattachanP. D’Odorico and S. Suweis) who tried to build a model to predict human migration due climate change on a the study case of rising sea levels in Bangladesh:
A universal model for predicting human migration under climate change: examining future sea level rise in Bangladesh

CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE PUBLIC

Here’s is an interview (It’s absolutely time to panic about climate change by Vox) with the journalist and author of “The Uninhabitable Earth”, David Wallace-Wells, where he discusses that climate change and its societal implications.
Before he published his book (read an excerpt here) he wrote an alarming and controversial article in The New York Times: Doomsday.  You find lots of sources and further readings in the NYT article.

Here’s an article on 12 artists’ responses to the threat of climate change:
