Warming and Oxygen Loss in Rivers Outpacing Oceans

Rivers are warming and losing oxygen faster than oceans, according to a Penn State-led study published today (Sept. 14) in the journal Nature Climate Change.

Ancient Pathogens from Melting Ice Pose Ecological Risks

As climate change continues to accelerate, the melting of ice and permafrost likely would release long-dormant pathogens trapped for thousands of years. This phenomenon poses a significant risk to global ecosystems and potentially to humanity itself. A recent global study conducted by Dr. Giovanni Strona from the European Commission Joint Research Centre and Professor Corey Bradshaw from Flinders University has shed light on the ecological dangers posed by the emergence of these ancient microbes.

Climate change impacts increasing in Asia

The World Meteorological Office (WMO) has released a report stating that Asia is experiencing higher-than-average warming and increasing climate change impacts. Floods, storms, droughts, and severe dust storms have caused significant loss of life, damage, and economic losses in the region. The report emphasizes the urgent need for transformative adaptation and strengthening food system resilience to combat these challenges.

Global Warming and Dengue Infections

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently sounded an alarm about the potential surge in dengue infections worldwide due to global warming's impact. As temperatures rise, precipitation increases, and droughts become more extended, the risk of dengue outbreaks intensifies.

Underground Climate Change: A Silent Hazard

: A groundbreaking study by North-western University reveals the link between underground climate change and the shifting ground beneath urban areas. Rising temperatures cause ground deformation, posing risks to building foundations and long-term infrastructure durability. However, the study also presents an opportunity to harness underground waste heat for thermal energy. The findings highlight the need for urban planners to address this issue and incorporate geothermal technologies and thermal insulation in future infrastructure designs.

Rainforests, the Size of Switzerland Destroyed

Earth lost a significant area of carbon-absorbing rainforests, with an area larger than Switzerland or the Netherlands destroyed, primarily for cattle ranching and commodity crops. This information comes from an analysis of satellite data released by the World Resources Institute.

El Nino in Few Months; World To Get Warmer   

The United Nations warned of a growing likelihood of El Niño to develop in coming months, fuelling higher global temperatures and possibly new heat records.

A Small Increase in Temperature Adds to Displacement

Even a one degree increase in temperature could cause a tenfold increase in displaced people, according to a new research by the...

Public Support Must for Meaningful strides in Climate Mitigation

As tackling climate change becomes an urgent and fundamental challenge, public support is a must for making any meaningful strides toward implementing...
