Environmental news this week...

The Guardian,Damian Carrington, Friday 27 April 2018

Major study finds microplastics in soil across Switzerland and scientists warn urgent research is needed into impacts on food safety as other countries may be worse affected

We also had a discussion this week about how Climate Change will affect our world and the fact that it will make water and food more scarce than it is now. Someone asked how many people currently die per day from a lack of food and water so Aiyana investigated:

"In environmental we have been learning about climate change. According to Hunger and World Poverty, about 21,000 people die globally every day from hunger or malnutrition."
