World Wildlife Fund says species in Latin America and the Caribbean were disproportionately affected, declining 94% on average — and humans are to blame.
Animal populations have plunged an average of 68% since 1970, as humanity pushes the planet’s life support systems to the edge
He was a renowned climate scientist who spent his life studying melting ice in the Arctic and warning the world about the consequences. And it was those very dangers that claimed the life of Konrad Steffen,... Science News Summaries. | Newser
The ice that hangs off the edge of Antarctica and floats on the ocean is melting faster than it is being replenished, even in pockets of East Antarctica typically thought to be less vulnerable to climate change, according to a new study.
Amazon said Tuesday that its carbon footprint rose 15 percent last year, even as it launched initiatives to reduce its harm on the environment.
As the climate warms, scientists expect more and more of the snowy desert to turn bright green.
Green snow created by blooming algae in the Antarctic Peninsula is likely to spread as temperatures increase as a result of climate change, researchers have said, after creating the first large-scale map of the organisms and their movements.
It shifts the focus away from cheap, effective emissions reductions and towards expensive, ineffective measures
A high-emission future could see the planet on track for 16.4 feet (5 metres) of average sea level rise by the year 2300 - exceeding International Panel on Climate Change projections.
When economies emerge from the pandemic, aggressive climate policies should be the priority, according to Dominic Raab, the foreign secretary and Boris Johnson’s deputy.
NASA satellites have provided more data than ever before on what has been happening to Antarctica and Greenland's ice over the past 16 years with dire, if not entirely unexpected, findings. Both polar ice sheets are losing billions of tonnes of ice every year and adding to sea-level rise.
Much of the coral in the 10,000-year-old Florida reef has been lost due to climate change, disease and pollution — now scientists may have a way to help save it.
Denman Glacier in East Antarctica has retreated three miles over a 22-year period, but researchers are concerned that its demise could just be beginning and a total meltdown would cause global sea levels to rise a whopping 5 feet (1.5 m).
In Waterworld, climate change melts the polar ice caps to drown Earth's continents in water. That's impossible, but a new study proposes Earth was once covered by a global ocean. Researchers found evidence that few to no landmasses existed 3.2 billion years ago. This suggests life emerged in the ocean, not freshwater ecosystems on land.
Data centre do not use so much energy as thought earlier, a new study titled “Recalibrating global data center energy-use estimates” found out.
