Climate Change Oceans Soaking Up More Heat Than Estimated – Matt McGrath

The world has seriously underestimated the amount of heat soaked up by our oceans over the past 25 years, researchers say. Their study suggests that the seas have absorbed 60% more than previously thought. They say it means the Earth is more sensitive to fossil fuel emissions than estimated. This could make it much more … Continue reading Climate Change Oceans Soaking Up More Heat Than Estimated – Matt McGrath

Massive Sinkhole Leaks Radioactive Water Into Florida’s Aquifer – Trevor Nace

A massive sinkhole recently collapsed nearby Mulberry, Florida, draining approximately 215 million gallons of radioactive and contaminated water into Florida's aquifer. The sinkhole was located directly below a wastewater storage pond used by Mosaic, the largest phosphate fertilizer producer in the world. There is local outcry that the event in fact took place three weeks … Continue reading Massive Sinkhole Leaks Radioactive Water Into Florida’s Aquifer – Trevor Nace

A.I. Is Helping Scientists Predict When and Where the Next Big Earthquake Will Be – Thomas Fuller & Cade Metz

Countless dollars and entire scientific careers have been dedicated to predicting where and when the next big earthquake will strike. But unlike weather forecasting, which has significantly improved with the use of better satellites and more powerful mathematical models, earthquake prediction has been marred by repeated failure. Some of the world’s most destructive earthquakes China … Continue reading A.I. Is Helping Scientists Predict When and Where the Next Big Earthquake Will Be – Thomas Fuller & Cade Metz

Climate Change: Five Cheap Ways To Remove CO2 From The Atmosphere – Matt McGrath

As well as rapidly reducing the carbon dioxide that we humans are pumping into the atmosphere in huge amounts, recent scientific assessments of climate change have all suggested that cutting emissions alone will not be enough to keep global temperatures from rising more than 1.5 or 2 degrees C. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change … Continue reading Climate Change: Five Cheap Ways To Remove CO2 From The Atmosphere – Matt McGrath

How A Technology From Iceland Is Fighting Climate Change – Robert Rapier

Iceland is unique among countries in that it obtains nearly all its electricity from renewable energy. Iceland's glacial rivers contribute about 70% of its electricity via hydropower, and the country's ~200 volcanoes enable geothermal to make up most of the rest. Today, humans are depleting fossil fuel resources, and in turn pumping carbon dioxide into … Continue reading How A Technology From Iceland Is Fighting Climate Change – Robert Rapier

Hurricane Leslie Is Headed Toward Spain And Africa – Marshall Shepherd

Before I discuss how weird that is, it is useful to explore Leslie's history. Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski laid out a timeline of Leslie on Accuweather's website. I have summarize his timeline:Leslie initially formed as a subtropical storm in the middle of the Atlantic, Leslie becomes tropical on October 3rd, Leslie weakens to tropical storm on … Continue reading Hurricane Leslie Is Headed Toward Spain And Africa – Marshall Shepherd

We Have a Decade to Prevent a Total Climate Disaster – Brian Kahn

By 2030, we as a collective 7 billion humans will know our fate, or at the very least, the fate of the most vulnerable among us. A landmark report released on Sunday sets the clock ticking for humanity and its quest to keep global warming to within 1.5 degrees Celsius of pre-industrial levels. The report … Continue reading We Have a Decade to Prevent a Total Climate Disaster – Brian Kahn

Could the ‘Mangrove Effect’ Save Coasts From Sea Level Rise – Olivia Rosane

When it comes to climate change and sea level rise, the news has been generally bad for communities on the U.S. Southeast coast. Florida is set to lose more than 10 percent of its homes by 2100, and five southern states have already lost $7.4 billion in home values.But one study conducted by biologists at … Continue reading Could the ‘Mangrove Effect’ Save Coasts From Sea Level Rise – Olivia Rosane

Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer

A team of scientists from Harvard University and the company Carbon Engineering announced on Thursday that they have found a method to cheaply and directly pull carbon-dioxide pollution out of the atmosphere. If their technique is successfully implemented at scale, it could transform how humanity thinks about the problem of climate change. It could give … Continue reading Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer
