Billionaire and philanthropist Bill Gates is urging all rich nations to shift away from environmentally destructive animal agriculture and toward plant-based and lab-grown alternatives to meat.
The Gulf Stream in the north Atlantic ocean, which has a considerable effect on Ireland’s climate, is at its weakest in over a millennium. Human-caused global warming is the most likely cause.
A new study provides evidence of a mechanism by which climate change could have played a direct role in the emergence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic.
Airlines could save fuel and reduce emissions on transatlantic flights by hitching a better ride on the jet stream, new research has shown. This would reduce CO2 emissions across the winter period by 6.7 million kg.
Tropical forests are guardians against runaway climate change, but their ability to remove CO2 from the atmosphere is wearing down. Between 2001 and 2019 the Brazilian Amazon acted as a net emitter of carbon, study found.
Within hours of becoming president, Joe Biden has moved to recommit the United States to the Paris Agreement — the internationally binding treaty to combat climate change.
An international team of researchers has used a new modeling technique to estimate that by the year 2100, the world’s cities could warm by as much as 4.4 degrees Celsius on average.
Trillions upon trillions of microbes have remained locked away in the Arctic’s permafrost in a “deep sleep” for thousands of years. But the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world in the wake of climate change.
