A new study led by Carrie Schloss, an analyst in environmental and forest sciences at the University of Washington, finds that nine percent of the Western Hemisphere's mammals, and nearly forty percent in particular regions, will fall victim to the changing climate. Some mammals are merely too slow to escape climate change in their natural habitats and are unable to move into different areas. The study seeks to understand if the mammals can actually adapt to these conditions by moving or not....

For the first time, researchers have been able to combine different climate models using spatial statistics - to project future seasonal temperature changes in regions across North America. They performed advanced statistical analysis on two different North American regional climate models and were able to estimate projections of temperature changes for the years 2041 to 2070, as well as the certainty of those projections. The analysis, developed by statisticians at Ohio State...

Lawrence LeBlond for RedOrbit.com A proposed reduction in the world´s carbon emissions set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) can only be met if the developed world cuts down meat consumption by 50 percent per person, according to new research from a Massachusetts-based climate initiative organization. Scientists from the Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC), located in Falmouth, Mass., found in a new study that the world needs to not only cut meat consumption by...

Meat consumption in the developed world needs to be cut by 50 per cent per person by 2050 if we are to meet the most aggressive strategy, set out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), to reduce one of the most important greenhouse gases, nitrous oxide (N2O). This is the finding from a new study, published today, 13 April, in IOP Publishing's Environmental Research Letters, which also claims that N2O emissions from the industrial and agricultural sectors will also need to...

With the rise of global warming also comes the rise in extreme weather predictions. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports in their Special Report on Extremes (SREX) that poorer nations with high concentrations of populations are the most at risk in suffering in extreme weather disasters. According to Chris Field, a Stanford University climate scientist, “We mostly experience weather and climate through the extreme. That´s where we have the losses....

A new method to make better use of vast amounts of data related to global geography, population and climate may help determine the relative importance of population increases vs. climate change. While several recent studies suggest that much of the world is likely to experience freshwater shortages as the population increases and temperatures rise, determining the relative impact of each has been difficult. An Oak Ridge National Laboratory paper published in Computers & Geosciences...

In recent years, the American public has grown increasingly skeptical of the existence of man-made climate change. Although pundits and scholars have suggested several reasons for this trend, a new study shows that the recent Great Recession has been a major factor. Lyle Scruggs, associate professor of political science in UConn´s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, suggests that this shift in opinion is related primarily to the public´s concern about the economy....

Even if zero emissions of greenhouse gases were to be achieved, the world´s temperature would continue to rise by about a quarter of a degree over a decade. That´s a best-case scenario, according to a paper co-written by a Simon Fraser University researcher. New climate change research - Climate response to zeroed emissions of greenhouse gases and aerosols – published in Nature´s online journal, urges the public, governments and industries to wake up to a harsh new...
