A team from the University of Colorado Boulder finds a new way to measure how much extra snow can be produced by cloud seeding. Continue reading Researchers Use Cloud Seeding to Make it Rain
The Earth has warmed so much since the 1950s that scientists can detect climate change from literally any day of global weather since 2012.

A research team from the University of South Australia has new evidence to suggest that the Antarctic ice sheet could be melting faster than previously thought – which means sea levels will rise more quickly. Continue reading The Antarctic Ice Sheet Could Melt Faster Than Predicted
There are many reasons why you might want house plants. Cleaning your indoor air probably shouldn’t be one of them. Read @Jordan Wilkerson’s article to learn why! Continue reading House Plants Don’t Really Clean Indoor Air
Turkish engineer and activist Bülent Şık was convicted and sentenced to 15 months in jail for publishing confidential results of a government study. His team discovered poisonous chemicals in food and water samples, linked to the high cancer incidence in western Turkey. Continue reading Turkish Environmental Researcher Imprisoned for Publicizing Cancer Study
Recently, scientists revealed that bacteria were able to produce a climate cooling gas, which could be useful in mitigating climate change Continue reading New AC for the summer? Bacteria produces climate-cooling gas
Using fossil fuels has led to climate change; however, trees can erase some damage. By maximizing forest coverage on Earth, scientists predict that the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere could be reduced by a quarter—back to levels from a hundred years ago.

Seaweed are usually beneficial to ocean life, but now scientists have observed enormous masses of algae in the Atlantic Ocean that can harm the environment. Read Ben Andreone’s article to learn more! Continue reading Largest Seaweed Bloom on Record Discovered in the Atlantic Ocean
by Felix Barber figures by Hannah Zucker We live in exceptional times, with extreme weather events in recent memory including devastating wildfires in California, flooding and polar conditions in the Midwest USA, and extreme rainfall in the wake of hurricane Harvey. Such events are predicted to only become more common with global climate change. In the US, the Clean Air Act (CAA) is a major … Continue reading Is it Smoky in Here? The importance of the Clean Air Act in the 21st century
Last week, a new study reported that the Antarctic’s second largest colony of emperor penguins continues to decline, after warming weather and high winds led to the loss of over 15,000 eggs in 2016. With reports like these becoming depressingly commonplace, environmental biologists are thinking of out-of-the-box solutions to fight the destruction of ecosystems around the world. One popular solution: Rewilding. Rewilding involves active and … Continue reading When conservation isn’t enough: rewilding lost ecosystems
