Article Octet Stream Environment, health and wellbeing: a systemic approach
The natural environment can benefit our health and quality of life, while environmental pollution has significant costs. Unfortunately, such links between environment, health and wellbeing are often ignored within science and policy. A new report highlights the importance of taking a broader, more systemic view.

Press Release EU reports lowest greenhouse gas emissions on record
The European Union's greenhouse gas emissions continued to fall in 2012, as a 1.3 % decrease cut emissions to 19.2 % below 1990 levels, according to official data from the European Environment Agency (EEA). This puts the EU within reach of its 20 % reduction target, with eight years to go until the 2020 deadline.

Daviz Visualization Projected changes in Northern Hemisphere September sea ice extent
Changes in Northern Hemisphere September sea ice extent as simulated by CMIP5 models over the 21st century under different emission scenarios (RCPs). Sea ice extent is defined as the total ocean area where sea ice concentration exceeds 15% and is calculated on the original model grids. The solid curves show the 5-year running mean mean under the emission scenarios RCP2.6 (blue) and RCP8.5 (red) based on those models that most closely reproduce the climatological mean state and 1979 to 2012 trend of the Arctic sea ice and the shading denotes the uncertainty range. The mean and associated uncertainties averaged over 2081−2100 are given for all RCP scenarios as colored vertical bars. For completeness, the CMIP5 multi-model mean for RCP2.6 and RCP8.5 is indicated with dotted lines. The dashed line represents nearly ice-free conditions. Adapted from Figure SPM7(b) in the Working Group I contribution to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report.

Highlight Climate change: immediate action is the best economic option
In the last decade, global greenhouse gas emissions have increased more rapidly than ever, and without global cooperation they will continue to rise. Reduction efforts will become increasingly challenging and costly the longer they are delayed, according to a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Figure Trend in relative sea level at selected European tide gauge stations
The map shows the trend in relative sea level at selected European tide gauge stations since 1970. These measured trends are not corrected for local land movement. No attempt has been made to assess the validity of any individual fit, so results should not be treated as suitable for use in planning or policymaking. Geographical coverage reflects the reporting of tide gauge measurements to the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL).
