To assess the likely impact of climate change on U.S. agriculture, researchers typically run a combination of climate and crop models that project how yields of maize, wheat, and other key crops will change over time. But ...
New research has found that developing countries with large carbon sinks and good governance tend to be the main destination for major green donors' climate mitigation funding.
This month, NASA begins an airborne experiment to improve scientists' understanding of the sources of two powerful greenhouse gases and how they cycle into and out of the atmosphere.
As New York's dairy farms get larger and store more manure – rather than spread it – methane emissions have doubled in the last two decades. To reduce this potent greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, Cornell researchers ...
Lung-penetrating dust from coal-fired power plants in the European Union claims some 23,000 lives a year and racks up tens of billions of euros in health costs, an NGO report said Tuesday.
New model shows that reducing fossil fuel emissions and improving adaptation efforts may reduce heat-related deaths in New York City.
A future with hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles and hydrogen-powered smartphones is much closer to reality.
Future global warming will not only depend on the amount of emissions from man-made greenhouse gasses, but will also depend on the sensitivity of the climate system and response to feedback mechanisms. By reconstructing past ...
Natural underground reservoirs of carbon dioxide are giving scientists vital clues how best to store man-made emissions of the greenhouse gas.
It's a dry heat, Phoenix residents like to say about Arizona's hot weather. That bravado may vanish as the thermometer flirts with 120 degrees this weekend.
