Information Is Beautiful illustrates the difference between 1.5°C vs 2°C vs 4°C temperature increases when it comes to sea level rises, ocean acidification, heat & food production. Bear in mind 1.5°C is inevitable and the bare minimum that will happen and we are currently on track for 2.4°C temperature increase.

Researchers from the Southern University of Science and Technology and Fudan University in China and the University of Leeds in the UK teamed up to demonstrate an improved use of gold nano-particles in the fight against bacteria. The research shows that combined antibacterial methods using gold nano-particles successfully reduced the severity of the bacteria while also increasing the efficacy of antibiotics.
