Exceptional dry and hot summers in 2018 and 2019 caused widespread browning and tree mortality events in central Europe
March 08, 2022

4C researchers have published a new study that evaluates how two consecutive extreme summers impacted ecosystems and vegetation in central Europe. Another research supported by 4C shows how northern peatlands could accelerate global warming if action on climate change is not taken.

The increase in CO2-induced global warming will only stop when humans stop adding CO2 to the atmosphere, according to a recent report published by the 4C project. The report discusses the latest science on zero CO2 emissions, and touches on the importance of zero vs. net-zero emissions for policymaking.
