Global warming is pushing heat beyond human tolerance – Inverse

The explosive growth and success of human society over the past 10,000 years has been underpinned by a distinct range of climate conditions. But the range of weather humans can encounter on Earth – the “climate envelope” – is shifting…

Global warming pushing Earth’s temperature to uninhabitable levels – World Economic Forum

Global warming is on track to reach a ‘wetbulb’ level of 35°C, where humans can no longer regulate safe body temperature through sweating. With continued exposure above this threshold, people can die by overheating. Reducing carbon emissions to net-zero can…

A rising tide of marine disease? How parasites respond to a warming world

(University of Washington) A recent study from the University of Washington explores the ways parasitism will respond to climate change, providing researchers new insights into disease transmission. The paper was published May 18 in the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution.

Erosion of ozone layer responsible for mass extinction event

Researchers have shown that an extinction event 360 million years ago, that killed much of the Earth’s plant and freshwater aquatic life, was caused by a brief breakdown of the ozone layer that shields the Earth from damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This is a newly discovered extinction mechanism with profound implications for our warming world today.

There's so much 'green snow' in the Antarctic, you can see it from space

[embedded content] Welcome to the green, green acres of Antarctica. Yes, you read that right. Climate change is dressing up parts of the South Pole in emerald hues, as scientists note algae blooms so vast they can be seen from…

How is global warming impacting the world’s tropical forests? – World Economic Forum

Trees remove carbon from the atmosphere when they are living, but release large quantities when they die. Scientists predict that just a 2˚C could push most tropical rainforests above their safe ‘heat threshold’ As they photosynthesise and grow, tropical forests…
