Carbon Dioxide in Atmosphere Hits Record High Despite Pandemic Dip

Dr. Keeling noted that last year’s drop in annual emissions was too small to be detected in the atmospheric data, since it can be overshadowed by natural fluctuations in carbon emissions from vegetation and soil in response to seasonal changes…

Dual impacts of extreme heat, ozone disproportionately hurt poorer areas

(University of California – San Diego) Scientists at UC San Diego, San Diego State University and colleagues find that extreme heat and elevated ozone levels, often jointly present during California summers, affect certain ZIP codes more than others.

Observations show marine clouds amplify global warming – Newswise

Newswise — A new analysis of satellite cloud observations finds that global warming causes low-level clouds over the oceans to decrease, leading to further warming. The work, led by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), in collaboration with colleagues…
