Global Warming Already Responsible for 1 in 3 Heat-Related Deaths – SciTechDaily

New estimates suggest Central and South America and South-East Asia most affected regions. Between 1991 and 2018, more than a third of all deaths in which heat played a role were attributable to human-induced global warming, according to a new…

The sad fate of krill in the Southern Ocean

Krill in the Southern Ocean are projected to decline about 30% this century, due to human-driven climate change. But natural variability also plays a role. A new study tries to tease out the difference.

The post The sad fate of krill in the Southern Ocean first appeared on EarthSky.

Is the Controlled Shrinking of Economies a Better Bet to Slow Climate Change Than Unproven Technologies? – InsideClimate News

Existing plans to limit global warming rely too much on “increasingly unrealistic assumptions” that societies will be able to remove huge amounts of carbon from the atmosphere while simultaneously maintaining incessant economic growth over the next 50 years, according to…

Animals’ ability to adapt their habitats key to survival amid climate change

(University of Wyoming) A research group of scientists from North America, Europe and Africa concluded that animals’ ability to respond to climate change likely depends on how well they modify their habitats, such as nests and burrows.

Salamanders have a secret to survive drought, heat waves, and climate change – Vox.com

This story is part of Down to Earth, a Vox reporting initiative on the science, politics, and economics of the biodiversity crisis. A decade ago, a team of salamander researchers made a dire prediction: that climate change would make much…

On the road to practical, low-cost superconductors with unexplored materials

(Shibaura Institute of Technology) Superconductors have tremendous appeal in power transmission applications due to their zero resistance. However, to bring classical metallic superconductors into superconducting state requires liquid helium as a coolant, which is costly. Now, scientists from Japan take things to the new level by demonstrating high temperature superconductivity in mixed rare-earth barium copper oxides fabricated using a popular technique, opening doors to their low-cost, industrial scale production for real-world applications.
