The heat is on Anthropogenic climate change is causing not only more episodes of historically high air temperatures but also more frequent spells of unusually increased ocean temperatures. Marine heatwaves, defined as periods of anonymously high regional surface ocean temperatures,…
Climate change rhetoric continues to escalate, with alarmists now proclaiming that there is no need to wait because “the apocalypse is now.” That is the title of an article Wednesday by journalist Erin Bunch, in which she explains how “rampant…
Scientists have described a new nanodevice that acts almost identically to a brain cell. Furthermore, they have shown that these synthetic brain cells can be joined together to form intricate networks that can then solve problems in a brain-like manner.
Here’s how we can find out if it’s a sign of life.
(University of Exeter) Current global pledges to tackle climate change are the equivalent of declaring a pandemic without a plan for social distancing, researchers say.
Australia’s resistance to a mid-century net zero emissions target is likely to become increasingly unsustainable after China surprised global leaders by pledging it would reach “carbon neutrality” before 2060, climate analysts and advocates say. The announcement by the Chinese president,…
Amazonia is closer to a catastrophic ecological tipping point than any time in the last 100,000 years, and human activity is the cause.
In a new climate modeling study that looked at the impacts of accelerated ice melt from the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) on future climate, a team of climate scientists reports that future ice-sheet melt is expected to have significant effects on global climate.
How is melting a continent-sized ice sheet like stirring milk into coffee? Both are, for all practical purposes, irreversible. In a new study published in the Sept. 24 Nature, researchers outline a series of temperature-related tipping points for the Antarctic Ice Sheet….
Research shows prenatal cannabis exposure may impact child behavior later in life.
