Experts lead research into impact of climate change on rainforest elephants

Experts from the University of Stirling, working closely with the Government of Gabon, have led an international study into the impact of climate change on Central Africa’s rainforests and the threat posed to elephant populations in the region. Dr. Emma Bush and Dr. Robin Whytock, of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, along with Professors Kate […]

Measuring air pollution in a post-COVID-19 world

Air pollution is one of the biggest environmental problems of our time. According to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA), air pollution now contributes to one in eight deaths in Europe. Observations from the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite have been vital in tracking the evolution of air pollution, specifically nitrogen dioxide concentrations, across […]

Climate change will ultimately cost humanity $100,000 per ton of carbon, scientists estimate

Economists frequently try to estimate the societal cost of releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, but few of their projections go beyond the year 2100—far short of the millennia it takes for the climate changes from burning carbon to ultimately subside. Two geoscientists and a philosopher from the University of Chicago wanted to take a […]

Aviation contributes 3.5% to the drivers of climate change that stem from humans

viation has been calculated to be 3.5 percent of all human activities that drive climate change, new research shows. A new international study provides unprecedented calculations of the impact of aviation on the climate from 2000 to 2018 to produce the most comprehensive insight to date. The findings show that two-thirds of the impact from aviation is […]

Researchers introduce new theory to calculate emissions liability

A comparison of the results for conventional point source pollution and bottleneck carbon emissions sources shows that oil and natural gas pipelines are far more important than simple point-source emissions calculations would indicate. It also shifts the emissions liability towards the East Coast from the Midwest. Most surprisingly, the study found that seven out of […]

The tropics are expanding, and climate change is the primary culprit

Earth’s tropics are expanding poleward and that expansion is driven by human-caused changes to the ocean, according to new research. The tropics wrap around Earth’s middle like a warm, wet belt. This part of the globe gets the most direct sunlight throughout the year and is characterized by high average temperatures and heavy rainfall. In […]

Global warming makes tropical soils leak carbon dioxide

Tropical forest soil warmed in experiments to levels consistent with end-of-century temperature projections released 55 percent more CO2 than control plots, exposing a previously underestimated source of greenhouse gas emissions, researchers reported Wednesday. Before humanity began loading the atmosphere with carbon pollution by burning fossil fuels, the input and outflow of CO2 into soil—one key element in Earth’s complex carbon cycle—remained […]

Climate change will cause more extreme wet and dry seasons, researchers find

The world can expect more rainfall as the climate changes, but it can also expect more water to evaporate, complicating efforts to manage reservoirs and irrigate crops in a growing world, according to a Clemson University researcher whose latest work has been published in the journal Nature Communications. Ashok Mishra, who is the corresponding author on […]
