Two things are clear from the recent UN climate change and biodiversity summits: “nature-based solutions” appear here to stay, and not everyone is happy about it.
From German bombs to Roman anchors, as more offshore energy infrastructure is built the history of the North Sea is colliding with its future.
Subsidies are government funds or other benefits, such as lower taxes, awarded to certain economic sectors or industries. Subsidies to fisheries are nothing new.
More accurate mapping of terrain in coastal regions will allow countries to better assess flood risk.
New global modeling predicts the devastating socioeconomic impacts of future extreme coastal flooding for developing nations caused by climate change, with Asia, West Africa and Egypt facing severe costs in the coming decades.
Detailed knowledge about whales in European waters will be provided by the Biodiversa+ project “eWHALE”, which started in January and is led by molecular ecologist Bettina Thalinger from the University of Innsbruck.
The €8.2 million OLAMUR project, which aims to help integrate aquaculture production with renewable wind energy, kicked off in Norway last month.

CHARLOTTETOWN - Prince Edward Island is imposing a moratorium on new shoreline protection projects after a controversy over a large, rock breakwater built around a beachfront home.
1st right whale found tangled in Canadian fishing rope in five years, DFO says.
Last night, the Brazilian Navy, after months of refusing to allow its old aircraft carrier SÃO PAULO to safely return to a Naval base, detonated explosives placed on the vessel’s massive hull to send it to the bottom of the sea, claiming it was a danger to the Brazilian coastline due to its structural condition.
Map the Gaps is cultivating and empowering a growing network of professionals, organizations and communities working together to create new ways for interacting with, understanding and protecting the seafloor. It helps to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in the ocean mapping community and provides access to discovery expeditions and leading technology.
Subsidies in the Inflation Reduction Act have stoked fears in other countries that investments in the green energy sector will be drawn to the US.
Multi-sensor XCRAFT is first in a constellation to serve Earth observation, space domain awareness and astronomy customers
We’ve all seen them. Images of countless turtles, whales, dolphins, sharks, and seals, dead and entangled in abandoned fish nets.
The maritime sector, which accounts for approximately 2.9% of global carbon emissions, is seeking to meet broader climate goals such as the Paris Agreement and 'Fit for 55' in Europe. Since it is the largest vessels, such as sea-going cargo vessels, which tend to contribute the most to maritime emissions, this presents a huge challenge.

The reality is with the current policy settings in New Zealand we can expect a managed retreat of maintenance on local roads in rural, remote rural and coastal areas over the next decade and potentially sooner.
One Home has identified 21 at-risk villages and hamlets
A Norwegian study has found a “substantial” amount metals and minerals ranging from copper to rare earth metals on the seabed of its extended continental shelf, authorities said on Friday in their first official estimates.
A handful of hyper-productive fisheries provide sustenance to a billion people and employ tens of millions. These fisheries occur on the eastern edges of the world's oceans -- off the West Coast of the U.S., the Canary Islands, Peru, Chile, and Benguela.
Ocean alkalinity enhancement (OAE) involves releasing certain minerals into the ocean, sparking a chemical reaction that enables the seawater to trap more CO₂ from the air and mitigating, albeit temporarily, ocean acidification.
Many developing countries are deep in financial debt. More often than not, however, they are rich in biodiversity. An increasingly popular climate agreement could enable them to minimise the debt they owe to wealthy nations – as long as the money saved is placed into environmental protection and adaptation projects.
Over ten years ago, a tsunami triggered a disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant on Japan’s east coast. After the accident, large amounts of radioactivity contaminated the ocean leading to the imposition of a marine exclusion zone and huge reputational damage to the regional fishing industry.
LIVING CITIES - CHAPTER THREE: SUSTAINABLE CITIES
Carbon emissions get much of the attention in the climate discussion, but the planet’s biological diversity is shrinking so rapidly that it threatens to undermine the broader climate agenda.
