Six new research projects that aim to build a sustainable future for the marine environment and those whose livelihoods depend on it were announced today.
Humid tropical forests, vital in global efforts to limit rising temperatures, are under threat as a result of changes in land use and climate.
Scientists developed a global dataset of job footprints in 50 countries and employed a model to analyze the effect of attempting to meet the Paris Agreement global climate target of staying well below 2 °C on energy sector jobs.
As per a report from the Chinese Global Carbon Dioxide Monitoring Scientific Experimental Satellite (TanSat), nearly six gigatons of carbon is being discharged over the land per annum, which equals almost 12 times the mass of all living humans.
Fincons Group, an established international family company providing IT business consulting and system integration, planted 1750 new trees in Africa, one for each member of the Group, to celebrate World Environment Day.
Restoration of degraded drylands is urgently needed to mitigate climate change, reverse desertification and secure livelihoods for the two billion people who live there, experts warn in a major new paper in Nature Ecology & Evolution.
More than 820 million people in the world don't have enough to eat, while climate change and increasing competition for land and water are further raising concerns about the future balance between food demand and supply.
The future of Samoa's electricity system could go green, a University of Otago study has shown.
Cornell University researchers will develop the first high-resolution carbon monitoring system for East Africa that combines "bottom up" ecological modeling with "top down" satellite data, thanks to a three-year, $1 million NASA grant.
The building sector in the U.S. accounts for 39 percent of energy use, with commercial buildings responsible for about half of that.
Plastics offer many benefits to society and are widely used in our daily life: they are lightweight, cheap and adaptable. However, the production, processing and disposal of plastics are simply not sustainable, and pose a major global threat to the environment and human health.
Jared Decker, a fourth-generation cattle farmer, has been aware of cattle suffering from health and productivity problems when they are moved from one location to another. The shift is from a region where they had spent generations to another place with a different climate, grass, or elevation.
Policymakers of California depend in part on shrublands and forests to remove CO2 from the atmosphere to attain the ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2045. However, scientists at the University of California, Irvine caution that future climate change might limit the ecosystem’s ability to provide this service.
Two major rivers trusts are joining forces to work with communities, researchers, and businesses in the plastics supply and waste management chain to identify plastic litter types in the Mersey catchment.
A far-reaching new study of the life-cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from passenger cars, including SUVs, draws sharp and meticulous distinctions between the climate impacts of battery and fuel cell electric vehicles on one hand and combustion vehicles on the other.
