ENVIRONMENT AND SCIENCE
The Head Chair for the EnviroSci Committee is Mahima
The Co-Chair is Olivia and the Guest Chair is Athar
A warming welcome to the EnviroSci Committee! I’m Mahima, your Head Chair. In 2019, the world woke up to the climate crisis- mighty Greta Thunberg has been propelled into the spotlight, and environmental issues have followed in her steed. Climate change, biodiversity loss, rising sea levels have all tumbled into the mainstream.
Our first issue: that of ‘An Insect Armageddon,’ is focused on the impact of pesticides on our insect populations and what a plunge in insect populations means for our planet. Our second issue, The Issue of a Loss in Biodiversity as a Result of Pollution, we can split the issue up into two fronts: tackling the loss of biodiversity, and tackling pollution (straying away from topics covered in Issue One).
Finally- The Issue of False Propaganda Regarding Climate Change: Not even climate change can escape the onslaught of fake news. In the popularisation of the climate’s wake, a maelstrom of fake news has followed. The principal peddler of the propaganda machine, unpredictably, is the fossil fuel industry, who push for a climate debate where there is neither room nor time for one. But the false propaganda can swing the other way too… How can we combat this?
I hope you are all excited for what promises to be a weekend of fun debate!
