China's greenhouse gas emissions may peak by the year 2025, according to a new report from the London School of Economics (LSE), easing scientists' fears of its contribution to climate change.
Warmer ocean waters are creating such a challenge for marine species worldwide, that new research shows they will consequently shift entire marine habitats.
Coral reefs are rapidly diminishing, and new research says that climate engineering, or geoengineering, could be the key to saving them from fatal mass bleaching events.
It has been said that our lofty goal of preventing the world from warming an additional 2 degrees Celsius is utterly inadequate. After all, research has already shown that means to keep to this two-degree limit are slipping away. And yet, despite all the speculation, one new study says that it is even possible to limit future warming to a more ambitious goal of 1.5 degrees C by 2100.
Humanity may be struggling to find ways of reducing carbon emissions, but it seems we are not going it alone, as Mother Nature is also fighting back in her own way against climate change.
As greenhouse gas levels hit record highs and summer temperatures reach their warmest ever, scientists are frantically working to find ways of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide that enters the atmosphere. But now, new research shows that we may be able to rely - at least in part - on nature alone, which has its own methods for removing atmospheric carbon. This includes rivers, which reportedly are crucial in regulating the global carbon cycle.
Scientists are increasingly worried for the Earth's forests as climate change stresses out plants with warming temperatures, affecting their growth and development. But new research may offer hope, as trees apparently cope by using less water with more carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the air.
The great Chicxulub impact is known for supposedly killing all of the dinosaurs on Earth, but new research suggests that this famous asteroid also wiped out unseen mollusks, making scientists question the role played by ocean acidification.
For the first time, average global carbon dioxide (CO2) levels have broken the monthly record, surpassing 400 parts per million (ppm) in March 2015, according to a new NOAA analysis.
It is well known that tropical deforestation is just as costly as carbon pollution when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. But while research has mostly focused on forests that have been completely mowed down, scientists are now saying that partially logged forests play just as crucial a role, and may emit more carbon than previously thought.
It's no secret that our warming climate is causing ice everywhere to melt, but now new research shows that this thaw may release a massive storehouse of carbon in long-frozen Arctic soils.
Plants have been hailed as possible saviors of the planet as it continues to warm up, especially considering that they can absorb more harmful carbon dioxide than previously thought. However, now new research says soil nutrients may hinder this plan, keeping plants from slowing down climate change.
A potentially game-changing breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis may be able to solve the world's carbon emission problem, according to new research.
It turns out that California wildfires release more greenhouse gases than previously thought, according to new research.
