Scientists monitoring the Earth's climate and environment have delivered a cascade of grim news this year, adding a sense of urgency to UN talks on how best to draw down the greenhouse gases that drive global warming.
The University of Surrey has developed a new and cost-effective catalyst to recycle two of the main causes behind climate change - carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4).
Nature itself can be the best defense against climate change for many species—at least in the short term—according to a study published in the journal Ecology Letters from the University of California, Davis.
Carbon dioxide in remote parts of the world's oceans will be measured by a new instrument being developed by scientists.
A new study by Monash biologists has provided fresh insights into the long-standing questions of why animals are of the size they are and what happens when we artificially induce a change in their size.
For reef-building corals, not just any symbiotic algae will do, new research shows.
A boatload of tourists in the far eastern Russian Arctic thought they were seeing clumps of ice on the shore, before the jaw-dropping realisation that some 200 polar bears were roaming on the mountain slope.
The flow of China's carbon emissions has reversed according to new research led by scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
The data used to calculate the damage that an additional ton of carbon dioxide has on the global economy has long relied on outdated science. Recent updates modeled by the University of California, Davis and Purdue University ...
A major study looking at changes in where UK birds have been found over the past 40 years has validated the latest climate change models being used to forecast impacts on birds and other animals.
