Whether you are debating if the fact or fiction of climate change is a hot topic. There are arguments on both sides, some of which may seem logical, but they are inaccurate or simply misleading. Some common myths about climate change were addressed by NASA, and the findings are compelling. But which myths are true?

In this article, we’ll examine arguments for and against climate change, explain the science behind these issues, and provide sources of information.

For the first time in the world, scientists from Victoria University of Wellington have discovered thousands of bleached sea sponges in New Zealand waters. The extreme temperature changes have caused the sponges to lose their rich, chocolate brown colour. The scientists found bleached sponges at more than a dozen sites, including Breaksea Sound in the Bay of Plenty and Doubtful Sound in Fiordland. Marine biology professor James Bell estimates that up to 95% of the sponges were bleached, and hundreds of thousands were affected.

Scientists have discovered life in places that we’d never imagined existed under the sea, including the New Britain Pool and Challenger Deep. While these places lack light, they are home to hundreds of small creatures. These creatures have been named the New Britain Pool and Challenger Deep, and are described in scientific journals. Scientists now plan to explore these areas and find out more about life on earth. But the real question is how deep can we go?

The development of non-invasive wind turbines for the growth of coral reefs colonies is a promising way to boost biodiversity, while avoiding environmental impacts. To make this possible, Orsted biologists partnered with academic and private coral experts to develop the ReCoral project. The team has successfully grown juvenile corals on steel and concrete substrates at a test facility in the Orsted’s quayside development.

There are several steps being taken to replenish the Colorado Rivers. The Bureau of Reclamation has warned that this will require transferring water from other sources. The steps being taken will be discussed in this article. In addition to the compact, other steps being taken include water transfers and marketing. Here are some of the most important ones. You should read this article carefully. It will answer any questions you might have about this issue.
