High-tech solar pumps are stopping freshwater reservoirs across Africa from running dry. The recent IPCC report discussed the severe, and worsening effects of climate change. But innovative solutions are being introduced by communities around the world to deal with the threat. From yarn that makes electricity to AI, apps and wind-powered ships, here are just some of the some clever solutions helping to tackle the climate crisis. With floods, wildfires and heatwaves dominating the news, the devastating reality of accelerating climate change is becoming inescapable. A flagship U.N. report on Monday showed no one is safe from its effects and there is an urgent need to prepare and protect people from extreme weather and rising seas. The report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), written by 234 scientists, said global warming of about 1.1 degrees Celsius has brought changes worldwide, from droughts and storms to melting glaciers. But it is not too late to cut climate-heating emissions and keep the temperature rise within internationally agreed goals of “well below” 2C and ideally 1.5C – which would help stop or slow down some of the impacts, the report said. Here are some innovative solutions by communities around the […]
