Uncovered shorelines and ancient penguin bones provide insight into the rapid rate of climate change in Antarctica Continue reading Uncovering Shorelines: Ancient Penguin Bones Provide Climate Change Insights
by Jessica Schifffigures by Sarah Dendy Climate change is impacting every region in the United States, fueling more intense natural disasters. It is hard to ignore the number of people leaving their homes due to either sudden events, like wildfires, or gradual climate-related changes, like sea level rise. In 2020, the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (iDMC) reported 1,719,000 new displacements and registered 126,000 internally displaced … Continue reading Climate Change is Happening in Our Own Backyards
Wildfires are contributing to increases in urban ozone pollution a potential health risk for those with respiratory conditions. Continue reading A Deadly Mix: Wildfires and Urban Air Pollution Create Toxic Ozone
by Sanjana Kulkarnifigures by Jovana Andrejevic The average global temperature is increasing faster now than at any time in the last 2 million years. This has fueled record-breaking droughts, heat waves, and wildfires, and has intensified weather patterns, causing more extreme and damaging hurricanes and rainfall. Human activity is driving this change, primarily through the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases, which … Continue reading Reversing Climate Change with Geoengineering
Alaska is experiencing fast and expansive consequences of climate change, resulting in an increase in greenness in Arctic areas. Continue reading Climate Change Drives Arctic Greening
A theoretical study finds that restructuring the US electricity power grid to rely solely on renewable energy sources will improve the grid’s resilience to local disruptions. Continue reading Improving the Power Grid’s Resilience with Renewable Energy Resources
As Earth continues warming, flooding across the U.S. has been getting worse. Scientists have recently figured out just how much that is costing us. Continue reading Climate Change Tied to a Third of Recent Flood Damage in U.S.
As the Arctic gets hotter, its landscape releases more greenhouse gases. According to a new study, the warming Arctic soil’s bacteria may diversify and emit even more greenhouse gas than scientists have thought. Continue reading As the Arctic Warms, Soil Bacteria May Diversify and Release More Carbon Dioxide
