Dams, mining, land-cover changes, and climate change are degrading the streams, rivers, lakes, and forests of the world's largest river basin at unprecedented rates, according to scientists.
Lawrence Livermore researchers and collaborators have found that most climate models overestimate the increase in global precipitation due to climate change.
There is more than twice as much carbon in the planet's soils than there is in its atmosphere, so the loss of even a small proportion of that could have a profound feedback effect on the global climate.
Once dismissed as dangerous science fiction, schemes to stave off global warming by re-engineering Earth's climate may well gain in traction as a result of the Paris agreement.
The New York Times sent reporter Jim Gorman and photographer Katie Orlinsky to report on a team from UC Riverside tracking Bombus polaris, the arctic bumblebee.
In a season traditionally associated with ice-skating, snowball fights and mulled wine in wintry Europe, birds are chirping, flowers blooming and fake snow covering Alpine ski slopes in one of the warmest Decembers on record.
