What should be a wilderness of white ice caps has been invaded by an eerie green tinge so widespread it’s now visible from space.

With most of the world in lockdown, real benefits can be seen on the environment across the globe as air pollution eases.

New research published on Wednesday from the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey showed the first map of these algae blooms, which help soak to soak up CO2 from the atmosphere. More parts of the Antarctic Peninsula will change colour as global temperatures increase, new research showed on May 19, 2020.

Alan Jones sanctioned over Jacinda Ardern comments, 'inaccurate' reportingOutgoing Sydney radio 2GB host Alan Jones has been taken to task by the industry regulator over comments he made on-air about climate change and Jacinda Ardern. I'm sure he's really cut up about that ....... He was a serial offender with no one to stop him including the industry regulator. I for one is glad that he is gone. Climate Change is a fraud. Nothing wrong with calling that out. Parting shot from the lefty flog SBS news. What percentage of the Australia population has the same views as expressed by SBS? I'm guessing about 15%. For that number you shouldn't get any public funding whatsoever.

Government listening to science on both coronavirus and climate change, Angus Taylor saysEnergy Minister Angus Taylor sees no difference with how the coalition has dealt with climate change and coronavirus in regards to listening to scientific advice. 🤣😂😥 Surely more evidence he shouldn't be Energy Minister then. I'm frankly surprised the energy minister can hear anything anyone says given just how far his head is wedged up his own ass.
