A framework to identify roofs for food, water, and energy production is proposed. Agriculture can be implemented on 8% of roofs to produce tomatoes and lettuce. Service buildings and residential housing are more suitable for agriculture.
Research into how cyclones are becoming more common due to climate change and the affects cyclones can have on disease outbreaks, resulting in a greater risk to public health.
This is a jointly-published editorial in line with the UN General Assembly to encourage the policy to be adopted but also to raise the profile of health professionals in the debate over climate change.

A plea to all nurses and midwives to join a global movement to avert a disaster on a global scale before it is too late.
With successful reproduction and recruitment fundamental to the continued persistence of fish populations under future climate conditions, understanding the physiological mechanisms – including taxonomic and population variation – wherein high temperatures lead to reduced reproductive performance is crucial to identify and remediate any reproductive impairment caused by warming aquatic habitats. Future endocrine studies have an important role to play to that end, as understanding the hormone mechanisms that underlie reproductive inhibition at high temperature, as well as extending our understanding of those mechanisms to consider the potential ability for fish to acclimate either through prior developmental thermal experience or via transgenerational and epigenetic mechanisms (e.g., Veilleux et al., 2018), will be crucial for predicting how wild fish populations will be affected by climate warming. The results presented here and elsewhere for other species (e.g., Alix et al., 2020; Servili et al., 2020) have a crucial role to play by serving as a foundation to guide future research into how extreme warm temperatures predicted under future climate scenarios will impact fish reproduction.
Consumers struggle to categorize cultured meat as it doesn't fit the "meat" nor "meat substitute" categories.
This article aims to present and discuss the energy and environmental reality in the building sector and critically investigate the future pathways towards its decarbonisation.
The drive to curb carbon emissions — and remove carbon from the atmosphere to the point where society is making a “net zero” contribution to CO2 levels — is essentially a scramble to secure our future on this planet. A new report from Elsevier aims to advance the understanding of research and innovation in net zero and how it supports the drive toward a clean-energy future.

Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, Volume 50, Pages A1-A8, 1-318 (June 2021)

This special issue of Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability (COSUST) brings together a collection of articles on environmental sustainability in relation to those adverse climate impacts –slow onset events--which unfold gradually over time. The special issue helps identify the gaps and challenges in understanding slow onset events and their local, national, and regional impacts, and possible approaches to manage these.
