The president-elect, Donald Trump, has made very damning statements about a slew of different fields before and during his campaign. Arguably, scientists championing projects geared towards alleviating the effects of climate change are amongst the most worried for the future of their projects.
Trump has made the climate research community anxious, shifting the focus and funding away from government efforts that delve on climate change such as NASA's earth sciences program and appointment of Myron Ebell as head of the EPA transition.
It is evident that the world is suffering from the extreme side effects of climate change. With sea ice at record lows and world temperatures at record high, it is now time for nations all over the world to transition into a "greener" state. For the past few years, experts and scientists have been lobbying for the full changeover of countries' energy generation from methods with carbon emissions to renewable energy. According to experts, Morocco may be the next leader of this "green" world.
Scientists have discovered that an underwater graveyard of dead corals off the coast of Kiritimati is slowly coming back to life.
A study published by researchers from Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and a team of scientists is evaluating the relationship between changing sea ice and beluga whale migration. They are also assessing the summer residency patterns of a number of populations over two decades of dramatic sea ice changes in the Pacific Arctic. Working in collaboration with Native hunters in Alaska and Canada, the researchers discovered that beluga whales showed an ability to deal with a changing environment.
A team of scientists has discovered a way on how to store carbon dioxide (CO2) into rocks, converting it into stable carbonate minerals. This new technology opens up a possible solution for lessening carbon emissions, making the Paris Climate Agreement target more achievable.
On Nov. 18, 47 of the world's poorest countries, have pledged to use 100 percent renewable energy. The pledge was made during the last day of the Marrakech climate conference. However, with the recent victory of Donald Trump in the US presidency, the tides might change.
For a country that suffers severely from the side effects of climate change and severe drought, locals are sure to be continuously active in finding ways to provide drinking water for villages on the edge of Sahara desert in South West Morocco.
As winter comes, Earth's climate is getting weirder reports show that North Pole's temperature is getting hotter by a dramatic 36 degrees while Siberia gets extremely cold weather -- all because of climate change.
More than 190 countries have joined once again to show that the historical Paris Agreement on Climate Change will continue to push through despite potential roadblocks to be imposed by president-elect Donald Trump.
A new study from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) may have cracked the elusive paradox involving the potent greenhouse gas methane that baffled many marine chemists for so long.
Scientists say climate change is responsible for the recent destruction of kelp forests off the southwestern coast of Australia.
US Secretary of State John Kerry visit to Antarctica is a milestone for climate change scientists and activists alike elated. It was, however, cut short, as the results of the 2016 US Elections came out.
