The world’s largest hot desert — with a scant population, strong winds and unobstructed exposure to the sun — is an idyllic landscape for generating renewable energy, according to new research.
Going green could make the Sahara Desert…go green
It may be human nature to want to assign blame for terrible events — and since climate change became part of public consciousness, it's a frequently faulted for natural disasters. Is Hurricane Florence our fault for emitting climate-changing greenhouse gases, or perhaps policy makers’ fault for allowing us to do so?
Climate change, hurricanes and hazards of connecting dots
Two to three million years ago, the functional loss of a single gene triggered a series of significant changes in what would eventually become the modern human species, altering everything from fertility rates to increasing cancer risk from eating red meat.
Single gene mutation may have helped humans become optimal long-distance runners
In the northern hemisphere, climate change is causing spring to arrive earlier.
