  • Global climatic change prompts marine life to go on the move

    How global climate change will alter the ocean and ecosystems at the heart of global food security over the 21st century has been highlighted by a trio of ground-breaking research papers. The studies, published in the leading journals Nature Communications, Science and Global Change Biology, were co-authored by scientists at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC). ...

  • Renewables assuming greater role in the EU energy mix, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

    Wind, solar and other renewable energy sources are steadily increasing their share in energy consumption across the European Union, further reducing the need for CO2-emitting fossil fuel energy, according to a report published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) today. This trend is driving down greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation, buildings’ heating and cooling, and ...

  • Soil management could make or break climate change response efforts

    Warning of "colossal" negative impacts for the environment and human societies if the massive stores of carbon trapped in the Earth's soils are released, Fijian president Jioji Konousi Konrote called for stronger management of this critical natural resource at the start of an international symposium today. There is currently more carbon locked up in just the first meter of the ...

  • Majority of Canadians support more action on climate change

    As Earth Month approaches during the year of Canada’s 150th birthday, Canadians are looking to the future with support for more action on climate change and increased renewable energy generation.

  • Cities taking action, learning from each other to adapt to climate change

    Despite budgetary challenges, cities and towns across Europe are taking action to put in place measures that will help them adapt to the impacts of climate change. A new European Environment Agency (EEA) report released today highlights the opportunities open to municipalities to share best practices and how they can support projects like green roofs or expanding city parks to help alleviate the ...

  • MPs’ damning review of proposals to mitigate Heathrow environmental impacts

    The Government has so far failed to prove that Heathrow expansion can be delivered within environmental limits, a committee of MPs has concluded. In a highly critical report, the Environmental Audit Committee said that its earlier warnings had not resulted in the necessary ‘step change’ in approach ...

  • NOAA Climate Change Claims Reinforced

    Temperature and salinity data measured from Argo floats are playing a critical role in disproving misinformation being promoted by climate change skeptics, who had previously claimed that the ocean warming trend had slowed down between 1998 and 2012 (popularized as the "Global Warming Hiatus"). NOAA received some much needed backup from scientists at UC Berkley on January 4th, when they published ...
