Only 20 per cent of ice formed in the Russian shelf reaches the Central Arctic, compared to around 50 per cent 20 years ago, according to a new paper published
In a new commentary published on 2 April in Nature, experts urge the restoration community, forestry experts, and policymakers to focus on regenerating natural forests (1). They argue that restoring
Deforestation emissions make up one-sixth of the carbon footprint of the average EU diet, according to a new study published on 29 March in Global Environmental Change, a peer-reviewed journal
The intensity of biodiversity and ecosystem changes owing to land use may largely depend on climate. In particular, the climatic environments of tropical mountains change dramatically with elevation, which the
On 26 March, the Paris-based International Energy Agency (IEA) announced the release of its latest report on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and the findings are worrying, to say the least.
From the beginning of the industrial revolution to the mid-1990s, the ocean absorbed around one-third of man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, according to a new study published on 15 March
If greenhouse gases continue to rise at current rates, at least 50 per cent of the global population will be exposed to two particularly dangerous disease-spreading mosquitoes — Aedes aegypti
Technology is making agriculture more efficient, however, technological advances may not be enough to counteract the impacts of an increasing global population on the environment. Rapid population growth and more
Scientists have developed a new way to capture and store carbon. The negative emission technology uses a liquid-metal electrocatalyst to transforms carbon dioxide gas into carbon-containing solids at room temperature.
A new study suggests that at certain carbon dioxide (CO2) levels the Earth could reach a tipping point at which dense low-lying cooling cloud layers could become unstable and break
