Global warming: What’s so significant about 1.5°C?
A major report is to set out what needs to be done to keep global temperature rises to no more than 1.5°C — and what that will mean for the planet. Here’s what you need to know.
No, wind farms are not causing global warming
Despite what you may have reader, wind farms are not causing the planet to heat up.
Caution urged over use of 'carbon unicorns' to limit warming
Climate scientists meeting in Korea are being urged to avoid relying on untested technologies as a way of keeping global temperature rise under 1.5°C.
Green electricity not enough to curb global warming
The adoption of clean energies to power electric grids won't be sufficient to meet the Paris climate targets established by the UN.
Global warming linked with rising antibiotic resistance
New research suggested rising temperatures are encouraging antibiotic resistance in cities across the US.
Keeping global warming to 1.5 °C helps most species hold their ground
Limiting global warming this century to just 1.5°C above preindustrial temperatures would be a boon to the planet’s biodiversity.
Global warming mixing up nature's dinner time
Global warming is screwing up nature's intricately timed dinner hour, often making hungry critters and those on the menu show up at much different times, a new study shows.
Methane's greenhouse gas effect warming Earth's surface
For the first time, scientists have directly measured methane's growing greenhouse gas effect at Earth's surface.
How biofuels from plant fibers could combat global warming
Scientists, companies and government agencies are hard at work on decreasing greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. In recent years, biofuels produced from corn have emerged as a fuel source to power motor vehicles and, perhaps, airplanes.
Global warming zaps oxygen
Take a deep breath. A recent scientific study reveals disturbing loss of ocean oxygen. Unnerving climatic events like this justify ringing and clanging of the bells on the Public Square, all hands on deck.
Threats of global warming real, shouldn't be ignored
Scientific research published in the past year has revealed some relatively new and potentially harmful effects that may result from the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide. An article in a recent issue of Science News raises concerns that rising carbon dioxide levels may steal some crop nutrients.
Forest, part of solution to global warming
Costa Rica, a ‘green republic’ known worldwide for its efforts to protect forests, had poor track record when it comes to deforestation. Costa Rica was once 99 percent forested, but forest cover had steadily diminished.
Cape Town on global warming front line as its water runs out
