President Donald Trump’s is expected to mark a win in his two-year fight to gut one of the United States’ single-biggest efforts against climate change, relaxing ambitious Obama-era vehicle mileage standards and raising the ceiling […]

Researchers from UCI and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory are concerned that the unique topography beneath East Antarctica’s Denman Glacier could make it even more susceptible to climate-driven collapse.

All over Europe, renewable installations are often located in protected areas GETTY IMAGES Wind, solar and hydro power installations pose a growing threat to key conservation areas, say researchers. Researchers found that over 2,200 green energy plants have been built within the boundaries of the Earth’s remaining wilderness. They say […]

A previously unknown significant source of carbon just discovered in the Arctic has scientists marveling at a once overlooked contributor to local coastal ecosystems — and concerned about what it may mean in an era of climate change. In a Nature Communications paper released today, aquatic chemists and hydrologists from The University […]

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Stratospheric aerosol geoengineering is the idea that adding a layer of aerosol particles to the upper atmosphere can reduce climate changes caused by greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. Previous research shows that solar geoengineering could be achieved using commercially available aircraft technologies to deliver the […]

The 2019 ozone hole reached its peak extent of 6.3 million square miles (16. 4 million square kilometers) on September 8. Abnormal weather patterns in the upper atmosphere over Antarctica dramatically limited ozone depletion this year.

Greenland. Credit: I. Joughin, University of Washington According to a new report, Greenland and Antarctica are losing ice six times faster than in the 1990s – currently on track with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s worst-case climate warming scenario. The findings, published in two separate papers in Nature, show that […]
