It's no secret that human activity is transforming our world. For example, increasing development for agriculture or new communities is shrinking forest
habitats, and new research shows that this is having a significant impact on global ...
The amount of carbon
the Amazon's remaining trees removed from the atmosphere fell by almost a third last decade, leading scientists to warn that manmade carbon
emissions would need to be cut more deeply to tackle climate change.
Fall in ...
Researchers warn that without better local management, some of the world's most iconic ecosystems may collapse under climate change.
It is well known that corals in the Great Barrier Reef, for example, are diminishing due to ocean ...
The amount of climate pollution being produced every year by the felling of forest
s is falling worldwide, but benefits of the heartening decline are being eroded by the worsening conditions of the forest
s still left standing.
The losses ...
The world changes a little faster these days. As concentrations of carbon
dioxide in the atmosphere tick up year over year, more and more of the sun's heat gets trapped. That heat affects the planet in a variety of ways: raising global average ...
A study has found that the net carbon
uptake of the Amazon forest
as halved since the 1990s. Researchers warn that the findings have implications for climate change and emission reduction targets.
The research, which was led by the ...
The Amazonian rainforest has lost much of its ability to absorb climate-altering greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, scientists reported on Wednesday.
In the 1990s, the great forest
was able to store as much as two billion tonnes of ...
The Amazon rainforest's ability to soak up greenhouse gases from the air has fallen sharply, possibly because climate change and droughts mean more trees are dying, an international team of scientists said on Wednesday.The world's biggest ...
The agreement was to block the rise in global temperature before 2020, and start a process for gradually reverting the climate to safe levels, to be concluded before 2050.
Well, in the last four years, we have already witnessed an ...
If you Google "rainforest," you're almost assured to get a page of search results mostly about the tropics. Yet, another kind of rainforest also exists: temperate rainforests. Far less expansive than the tropical kind, temperate rainforests occur ...
Willow and cottonwood trees, verdant with springtime foliage, draped over the shallow Aravaipa Creek in mid-February as if forsaking any notion of winter.
The blooming trees and abundant plant life, along with rare species of desert ...
During drought, trees across the Amazon continue to stretch their limbs. But they shirk one of their more important, planet-saving tasks: inhaling carbon
dioxide from the atmosphere.
In the drought of 2010, the ability of the Amazon's ...
In Minnesota, infestations have been found in the Twin Cities and in the state's southeastern corner. In northern Minnesota, where there are more than one million acres of black ash forest
containing nearly a billion trees, researchers say the ...
Ecologist Philip Fearnside has lived and worked in the Brazilian Amazon for 30 years and is one of the foremost authorities on deforestation in the world’s largest tropical forest
. A professor at the National Institute for Research in the Amazon, ...
The alarm bells of the climate crisis have been ringing in our ears for years and are getting louder all the time - yet humanity has failed to change course. What is wrong with us?
Many answers to that question have been offered, ranging ...
For decades, governments around the world have tried to cut emissions of carbon
dioxide in the atmosphere so global warming stays below a 2 degree rise by the end of the century. That target is not likely to be met.But there is another ...
It is not - as described in climatological models - the mass circulation of air which drives the hydrological cycle, but the hydrological cycle which drives the mass circulation of air.
Imagine being in one of the wettest rainforests in ...
A new report from the World Resources Institute finds that dedicating land to the production of biofuels, a form of renewable energy made from plants, may undermine efforts to achieve a sustainable food future, combat climate change, and protect ...
Imagine this scenario: The following is a Public Service Announcement by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Water, July 4, 2015: Because of low water levels in state reservoirs, the Division of Water proclaims a ...
In early 1998, some of the biggest fossil fuel companies in the world were hatching a plan to hijack the science of human-caused global warming.
Representatives from major fossil fuel corporations and industry groups had joined forces ...
Scientists have directly confirmed what they have long assumed to be true: Increasing amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon
dioxide, are trapping heat from escaping back into space and are thereby causing global ...
With Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, the odds of passing a climate change bill this year are virtually non-existent. But Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland, plans to reintroduce legislation to cap carbon
