In the article "Fisheries Emissions Rising Despite rect efforts"  written by Bethany Lindsay explains the findings about a study on fisheries and their greenhouse gasses emmisions. According to the University of B.C. research, harvesting crustaceans such as shrimp is creating a bigger carbon footprint. From 1990 to 2011, there has been an increase in carbon footprint of around 21 percent per tonne of fish. The study’s leader Robert Parker said that he didn’t really think this result was actually considered bad.

In the article “Singapore Deploys Robot Swans to Monitor Pollution and Look Serene While Doing So” the writer presents a new innovative tactic the Singapore government has put into effect to test water quality. Peter Dockrill, the author of the article iterates how ultimately, the goal of the swan is to oversee the quality of their water bodies while being environmentally friendly and not disrupting species living in the water being analyzed. Dockrill mentions how amidst blending in seamlessly, the swanbots are also a more affordable option when testing water samples.

The article "Warm water rapidly melting Antarctica from below due to climate change"  by the science correspondent Josh Gabsatiss, explains how climate change creates tremendous warm underwater that melts Antarctica's ice sheets, resulting in a rise of sea level which is estimated to highly threaten humankind due to possible natural disasters. It is also crucial to find the quantity of melted water expected to increase in order to be able to map the retreat of grounding lines, since the ice shelves connected to the bedrock underneath may collapse.

The article I've chosen, "Humans Get in the Way of Mammal Movement" highlights the consequences related to human invasion of territories mostly occupied by animals. The text begins by noting how over fifty different land-based animal species suffer as a result of the modification humans have made to certain landscapes. The study conducted by the University of Maryland took into consideration a vast majority of species, across the entire globe. Ultimately the goal was to detect whether or not human interference with animal species effected the daily life of the animals.

Net zero homes are custom made homes that produce as much energy as they consume, or even more, on an annual basis. It is an intelligent design that combines different renewable energy producers, as geothermal, solar, wind, hydro, etc. Using the adequate combination of theses, based on your house emplacement and needs, and other new technologies allows the house to be auto-suffisent. They are a lot of other designs that can help like better insulation, proper windows arrangements, high efficient appliances, low consuming lights, walls with higher R-value, ect.
