The US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has strongly reversed a lower court ruling in 2014 that questioned the enlistment of sea ice seals as threatened species, emphasizing that such may happen considering climate change.
Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere have reached a critical threshold for the first time in history since 2014.
Hurricane Seymour was seen strengthening into a major hurricane in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
Efforts in reducing food wastes have become an important campaign across the globe. This is to properly secure more food available for the people and reducing risks of accumulating waste. But a study tried to raise a different light to food waste reduction: if food wastes are largely reduced, what will happen to animals that depend on it?
A paper revealing the shimmering blue peacock begonia (Begonia pavonina) in the dark rain forests of Southeast Asia has been featured in the journal Nature Plants. Adjusting to the minimal amount of sunlight that reaches it, the Begonia pavonina has adapted by developing leaves that seem to glimmer blue in the dim forests.
With more and more people changing their lifestyles to better suit the environment, some of which have left their big houses and decided to live tiny or off-grid, there has been an increasing demand for innovative ways to generate energy without harming the planet. A team of researchers has developed a new technology that lets the wooden floors in your house generate electricity.
The internet has gone berserk after a theory popped up online, claiming that it might have found the reason behind the Bermuda Triangle mystery, and it all points out to hexagonal shaped clouds. However, NBC meteorologist Kevin Corriveau is not convinced at all.
Many are still raising eyebrows on the concept of global warming and denying the facts that have been proliferating the global and local news. Now experts have found another proof that the earth really is warming up, and algal blooms provided the evidence.
The launch of the most-anticipated weather satellite GOES-R has been delayed by Hurricane Matthew. But NOAA is working to finally deploy the satellite in November this year.
Iceland is drilling into the Earth to tap renewable energy from liquid magma. This new energy source could reach temperatures of 400 to 1,000 degrees Celsius.
UC Berkeley researchers discovered 47 new phylum-level bacterial groups living in aan aquifer in Colorado.
The Begonia pavonina produces shiny blue leaves not for aesthetic appeal but for energy harvesting through a unique photosynthesic process.
