Deep in the pristine Amazon jungle, Brazil's newest skyscraper has a mission unlike any other: to save the world.
In the Arctic, enhanced vegetation growth amplifies global warming. On the Tibetan Plateau, however, the situation is the reverse.
Australian scientists have discovered many tropical, mountaintop plants won't survive global warming, even under the best-case climate scenario.
Climate change mitigation could actually increase water shortage in some areas rather than reduce it, according to new research. The source of the problem is clear: greater demand for biofuels, intended to reduce emissions ...
Not so long ago, skeleton staff overwintering at the Ny-Alesund research centre could walk on the Arctic town's frozen bay and race their snow mobiles across its surface.
A new study led by a University of York scientist addresses an important question in climate science: how accurate are climate model projections?
A team of elder Silicon Valley scientists is building an audacious device that might solve one of humanity's most profound dilemmas - a "cloud whitener" designed to cool a warming planet.
A slow-down in global warming is not a sign that climate change is ending, but a natural blip in an otherwise long-term upwards trend, research shows.
Limiting warming to any level requires CO2 emissions to be kept to within a certain limit known as a carbon budget. Can reducing shorter-lived climate forcers influence the size of this budget? A new IIASA study published ...
Inconspicuous creatures surprise with a property that is important for our climate: Lichens, mosses and cyanobacteria release large quantities of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O), also known as laughing gas, and low ...
