Virtual Eye/AP Emirates Team New Zealand, which took home the America's Cup after swiping it from Larry Ellison's Oracle Team USA in a duel of foiling catamarans off Bermuda this summer, has reinvented the boat that will next compete for the trophy.

Arctic warming happening faster than previously thought, report says

An international summary of five year's worth of research on Arctic climate change concludes the top of the world is getting warmer faster than anyone thought. And if it all sounds interesting but a little far removed from southern concerns, David Barber has news for you.

Blue Planet II episode highlights how plastic is killing our precious sea creatures

B lue Planet II’s latest episode focuses on how plastic is having a devastating effect on the ocean and slowly poisoning our sea creatures. Episode four of the acclaimed documentary series , Big Blue, presented by Sir David Attenborough, features a heart-wrenching segment on a hawksbill turtle tangled in a plastic sack, before being freed by a camera operator. It also details how plastic pollution is killing whales through chemical contamination, showing a pod of pilot whales being emotionally affected by the death of a newborn calf. “Surviving in the open ocean has always tested animals to their limit, but today they face a new additional threat. Plastic,” says the broadcaster. The show’s producers revealed to  BBC Newsbeat the extent of the plastic problem they witnessed while filming the series.
