How climate change is melting glaciers in the Alps – in pictures | Climate crisis

FFrom the way 45-year-old Swiss glaciologist Andreas Linsbauer leaps across icy crevasses, you would never guess he was carrying 10kg of steel equipment needed to track the decline of Swiss glaciers. Normally he takes this path on the massive Morteratsch glacier in late September, at the end of the summer melt season in the Alps. […]

Fighting climate change with containerized research laboratories

Research shows that there is more carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere than ever before in human history. TO CANCEL address the adverse effects of climate change by using improved weathering, based on the natural weathering of rocks. S Jones Containers were tasked with creating a fully containerized lab space that would allow the UNDO […]

Climate change increases conflict between polar bears and humans

Climate change and human impacts on land are driving an increasing number of encounters between humans and polar bears around the Arctic, new research finds. “What we’ve seen is an increase in intensity (of encounters) and increased occurrences in places where polar bears don’t normally occur,” said Polar Bears International researcher Geoff York and co.

Poll shows climate change a big deal for voters, including some Republicans

A majority of Wisconsin residents believe climate change is a serious problem and support solutions such as taxing industries for pollution and increasing renewable energy sources to combat it. But while the issue is gaining some bipartisan support among Wisconsin residents, bipartisanship is harder to see in the political dialogue emerging from the state’s two […]

Climate change creates new conflicts for surf clam and ocean quahog fisheries as warming forces habitat to change

HATTIESBURG, MS/ACCESSWIRE/July 21, 2022/ Climate change is now affecting long-standing patterns of marine life, with warmer waters pushing species out of their traditional habitats into new areas. As these changes become more common, they will create challenges for fishers, scientists and regulators. A team from the Scientific Center for Maritime Fisheries (SCEMFIS) is examining the […]

LETTER: The catastrophic costs of inaction on climate change

Submitted by Matt DesChamps The costs of inaction on climate change are already being paid by the citizens of Greenwich and many other coastal towns in Connecticut and the United States. Costs are incurred every time a storm tears our community apart. Flooded streets, schools and basements, downed power lines and polluted waterways are expensive […]

California is losing its trees – possibly permanently – as climate change alters its ecosystems

California forests are losing more trees than they can recover, warns a new article. Headwaters Forest Reserve in California. Image credits Bureau of Land Management/Flickr. Forests are one of the pillars of the State of California’s strategy to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions. As factories grow, they remove this gas from the air, resulting in […]

Climate variability is driving a global decline in forest resilience

Forests cover almost a third of the Earth’s land surface. Not only do they play a fundamental role in the global carbon cycle by absorbing a third of anthropogenic carbon emissions and mitigating climate change, but they also provide a series of ecosystem services that contribute to the well-being of society, such as regulation of […]
