Human-Caused Warming Likely Led to Recent Stream of Record-Breaking Temperatures

According to authors of a new study from the American Geophysical Union, it is “extremely unlikely” that 2014, 2015 and 2016 would have been the warmest consecutive years on record without the influence of human-caused climate change. Temperature records were first broken in 2014, when that year became the hottest year since global temperature records

High Temperatures Linked to Changes in Loggerhead Turtle Nesting

  Loggerhead turtles are particularly susceptible to climate change as the risk of nest flooding increases and the health of hatchlings declines. Florida holds the world’s largest nesting population of loggerheads, yet little is known about the species’ activity in nearby Cuba. A recent article published in Chelonian Conservation and Biology suggests changing climate may

First Space-Based View of Human-Made Carbon Dioxide

Scientists produced the first global maps of human emissions of carbon dioxide ever made solely from satellite observations. The maps, based on data from NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite and generated with a new data-processing technique, agree well with inventories of known carbon dioxide emissions. No satellite before OCO-2 was capable of measuring carbon

Isolated Coral Reefs Far from Human Activity Are Not Healthier

For the world’s coral reefs, the picture keeps getting gloomier. Although it’s widely assumed that both local and global factors are contributing to their decline, new research from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill shows that isolated reefs far from human activities are in fact not healthier than those in more densely populated

EPA Determines that Aircraft Emissions Contribute to Climate Change Endangering Public Health and the Environment

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today finalized a determination under the Clean Air Act that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from certain types of aircraft engines contribute to the pollution that causes climate change and endangers Americans’ health and the environment. The findings are for carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs),

Geospatial Science Expert to Help Determine Greenhouse Gas Guidelines

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A geospatial science expert at the University of Arkansas will help refine international guidelines for greenhouse gas inventories that will be considered for adoption by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The panel, known as IPCC, was created to provide policymakers with regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its

Climate Tipping Points: What Do They Mean for Society?

The phrase “tipping point” passed its own tipping point and caught fire after author Malcolm Gladwell’s so-named 2000 book. It’s now frequently used in discussions about climate change, but what are “climate tipping points”? And what do they mean for society and the economy? Scientists at Rutgers University and Harvard University tackle the terminology and

Climate Change is Affecting North American Fish

Climate change is already affecting inland fish across North America — including some fish that are popular with anglers. Scientists are seeing a variety of changes in how inland fish reproduce, grow, and where they can live, according to four new studies published this week in a special issue of Fisheries magazine. “Thanks to this synthesis,

Climate Study Finds Human Fingerprint in Northern Hemisphere Greening

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., June 29, 2016—A multinational team led by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory Climate Change Science Institute has found the first positive correlation between human activity and enhanced vegetation growth. The research team, led by Jiafu Mao of the Ecosystem Simulation Science group in the Environmental Sciences Division, used new

Climate Change Has Reshuffled UK Wildlife Calendar

Climate change is already affecting the UK’s wildlife calendar, and it’s likely this will continue into the future, according to new research published in the journal Nature. The results suggest that seasonal events – such as the timing of flowering in plants and bird breeding behaviour – are generally more sensitive to temperature change, than
