(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) The severe droughts in the USA and Australia are the first sign that the tropics, and their warm temperatures, are apparently expanding in the wake of climate change.
During wildfires, nitrous acid plays a leading role — spiking to levels significantly higher than scientists expected, driving increased ozone pollution and harming air quality, according to a new study.
Many people could face unbearable temperatures soon. Temperature anomalies on land in the Northern Hemisphere (red) are spread out much wider and they are more than 0.5°C higher than global land+ocean anomalies (blue). The pale green and grey trends are…
Not only was August 2020 the 2nd-warmest August on record, but the Northern Hemisphere had its warmest summer on record, and the globe as a whole had its 3rd-hottest 3-month season.
The health impact of wildfire exposure depends in part on the fire itself and how much smoke a person breathes in, how often and for how long.
Anthropogenic ammonia emissions and the water content matter more than dry particle composition for the acidity of atmospheric aerosols in populated regions.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The year 2020 will be remembered for being a very trying year and western wildfires have just added to the year’s woes.
(Max Planck Institute for Chemistry) Anthropogenic ammonia emissions and the water content matter more than dry particle composition for the acidity of atmospheric aerosols in populated regions.
02:14 What’s the environmental cost of flying? According to a newly published study, the contribution of aviation to global warming nearly doubled between 2000 and 2018. That’s mainly because steadily more passengers have been taking to the skies each year…
The unthinkable consequences of global warming by Andrew Glikson “We’re simply talking about the very life support system of this planet”. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber 2009. “Burning all fossil fuels would create a different planet than the one that humanity knows….
