DRY: the diary of a water superhero

This book is for children everywhere. Read how an ordinary schoolgirl in the UK transforms into a water superhero when a DRY summer becomes a DRY winter. Join her as she shares her new found love of water with her family, school and community as the drought progresses into a second DRY summer. This book was co-produced as part of NERC DRY (Drought Risk) and About Drought projects (see www.dryutility.info and www.aboutdrought.info). (date: 07/12/2021)

COP26: Key outcomes agreed at the UN climate talks in Glasgow - Carbon Brief

The UN climate conference, COP26, finally took place in Glasgow, with expectations and tensions running high after a year-long delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The two-week meeting was seen as a critical moment for commitments and action after richer nations had failed to raise the $100bn annual climate funding they had promised to vulnerable countries and the gap to staying below 1.5C loomed large.

Met Office - Future extreme rainfall more extreme than first thought

New analysis of the latest climate science shows that future extreme rainfall could be more extreme than previously thought. * In a stark example, new calculations using a high emissions scenario with around 3°C of warming by 2070 show that in Glasgow, where COP26 is being hosted, the number of days where 30mm of rain or more is recorded in an hour could be 3.5 times more likely by the 2070s compared with the 1990s.
