As the human and economic costs of climate disasters continue to mount, Canada faces a choice. It can continue to respond to disasters as they unfold -; with the attendant economic, social, and health harms -; or it can proactively prepare for them, mitigating the worst of the damages or avoiding them altogether.
Australia’s $900 million citrus industry could face serious production and market access risks if the industry is not adequately prepared to manage future biosecurity threats.
A team of researchers at the University of Michigan has created a next-generation lithium-sulfur battery using recycled Kevlar.
The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), the world’s champion for the power of plants, is proud to welcome EFB as a partner for the AIPH World Green City Awards and beyond.
Researchers in Ireland and Japan have highlighted the importance of preserving biodiversity in the wake of a globally warming climate.
Predator species may buffer the negative impacts of climate change by mitigating against the loss of biodiversity, according to new research led by scientists in Trinity College Dublin and Hokkaido University.
For electric vehicles (EVs) to become mainstream, they need cost-effective, safer, longer-lasting batteries that won't explode during use or harm the environment. Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology may have found a promising alternative to conventional lithium-ion batteries made from a common material: rubber.
It's taken almost 10 years to design and construct, but researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Idaho National Laboratory have now energized and put into service one of the nation's most comprehensive electric power grid test beds.
Economic growth goes down when the number of wet days and days with extreme rainfall go up, a team of Potsdam scientists finds.
Vital seagrass habitat is more widespread and diverse than previously thought, according to new research that is surveying the habitats across Marra and Yanyuwa sea country.
Researchers have provided an important insight into the cultural taboo surrounding an innovative ‘green’ technology that enables users to transform their domestic toilet waste into biogas.
The Arabian Peninsula is one of the world’s driest places, hence understanding how climate change may alter local rainfall patterns is critical. According to data comparisons, changes in winter rainfall over the peninsula throughout the 1980s have now been connected to an ocean-atmospheric phenomenon affecting sea surface temperatures in the central Pacific and westerly jet streams arriving from North Africa.
Permafrost researchers analyse the drivers of rapidly changing Arctic coasts and the implications for humans and environment
The combustion of fuels used for powering ships negatively impacts our environment by releasing harmful pollutants into the atmosphere. As a result, maritime agencies monitoring shipping operations have enforced regulations to mitigate this impact.
Aerosol effects on cloud formation are key to understand climate forcing in the Anthropocene. Wildfires inject large amounts of biomass burning aerosol particles into the atmosphere, which by interacting with clouds, strongly enhance the formation of marine stratocumulus cloud. But their role in regions with strong human activities and complex monsoon circulation remains unclear.
