This is part of IEEE Spectrum’s special report: Critical Challenges 2002: Technology Takes On The government of Tuvalu, a Pacific Island nation, made a plea last summer for countries to take in Tuvalu evacuees, fearing a rising sea level will…

Ignoring climate change will yield ‘untold suffering,’ panel of 14,000 scientists warns – Livescience.com

Nearly 14,000 scientists have signed a new climate emergency paper, warning that “untold suffering” awaits the human race if we don’t start tackling global warming head-on, effective immediately. The new paper, published July 28 in the journal BioScience and led…

Hotter here, wetter there: How and why climate change will remake our world – The Times of Israel

Left to its own devices, nature is an artwork of balance and cycles. Carbon dioxide, for example — the most abundant global warming gas — produced by the likes of oceans, erupting volcanoes and decomposing life, is absorbed by forests…

International team of scientists turns methane into methanol at room temperature

(Stanford University) A “tantalizing” principle borrowed from nature turns harmful methane into useful methanol at room temperature. With their latest study, U.S. and Belgian scientists have brought this process an important step closer to realization.

New study from Monterey Bay Aquarium puts disparities of climate change on the map

(Monterey Bay Aquarium) New research, led by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, illustrates the disparity between the narrow origins and far-reaching impacts of greenhouse emissions responsible for disrupting the global climate system.

    Commentary: The recent juxtaposition of three events created a unique snapshot of a critical moment in our miserable failure to save our grandkids from suffering and death, and numerous species from extinction caused by global warming. The Pacific Northwest, the Arctic Circle, and…

Elevated warming, ozone have detrimental effects on plant roots, promote soil carbon loss

(North Carolina State University) Two factors that play a key role in climate change – increased climate warming and elevated ozone levels – appear to have detrimental effects on soybean plant roots, their relationship with symbiotic microorganisms in the soil and the ways the plants sequester carbon.

A Temperature Rise Of More Than 18 Degrees Celsius By 2026?

On July 1, 2021 pm, the MetOp-1 satellite recorded a mean methane level of 1935 ppb at 293 mb. This mean methane level translates into 387 ppm CO₂e at a 1-year Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 200.  This GWP is…

Fact check: Is global warming merely a natural cycle? – DW (English)

It’s true that within its 4.5-billion-year history, planet Earth has experienced periods of lesser and greater warmth. Altering over many thousands of years, these shifting temperatures have been determined by variations in Earth’s orbit around the sun. While greater distances…
