Coincidences influence the onset and ending of ice ages

An analysis of the so called climate spectrum shows why the ice ages have not behaved precisely as the models predict. A large element of coincidence is involved when an ice age begins or ends, the analysis shows. The results imply we should maybe use a more conservative risk assessment then the one IPCC recommends.

Increasing opportunities for sustainable behavior

(International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis) To mitigate climate change and safeguard ecosystems, we need to make drastic changes in our consumption and transport behaviors. A new IIASA study shows how even minor changes to available infrastructure can trigger tipping points in the collective adoption of sustainable behaviors.

Plane travel destroys polar bear habitat

(Norwegian University of Science and Technology) A group of polar bear researchers wants you to do more than worry about the fate of these beautiful animals. They’ve calculated how much summer sea ice is melted per metric ton of CO2 emissions. Then you can decide if the flight you’re planning to take is worth destroying polar bear habitat.

High temperatures due to global warming will be dramatic even for tardigrades

A research group has just shown that tardigrades are very vulnerable to long-term high temperature exposures. The tiny animals, in their desiccated state, are best known for their extraordinary tolerance to extreme environments.
