New research suggests that Antarctic sea ice may not be expanding as fast as previously thought. A team of scientists say much of the increase measured for Southern Hemisphere sea ice could be due to a processing error in the satellite data.

Earth’s CO2 And Climate Stabilized By Ancient Forests
2014-01-24 12:38:58

UK researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilized over the past 24 million years.

Temperature Increase Puts Terrestrial Ecosystems At Risk Of Major Shifts
2013-10-08 11:39:45

Over 80% of the world's ice-free land is at risk of profound ecosystem transformation by 2100, a new study reveals.

Tiny Plankton May Have Big Impact On Climate
2013-09-13 14:28:37

As the climate changes and oceans' acidity increases, tiny plankton seem set to succeed.

Could Planting Trees In The Desert Take The Edge Off Climate Change?
2013-07-31 12:51:58

As the world starts feeling the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and consequent global temperature rise, researchers are looking for a Plan B to mitigate climate change.

Most of the world's population will be subject to degraded air quality in 2050 if man-made emissions continue as usual.

Space Mirrors Won't Fix Climate Change
2012-06-06 12:00:59

Geoengineering is a field of study that proposes techniques to reduce the amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface.

Image 1 - Fukushima Still Faces Earthquake Risk
2012-02-14 12:04:46

Seismic risk at the Fukushima nuclear plant increased after the magnitude 9 earthquake that hit Japan last March, scientists report.
