Answering this question takes us to some very interesting places — back into the past, up into the sky, down into the ocean and sweeping across desert plains. It offers magnificent proof of the abundance of animal life on Earth, but it also points to humanity’s role in […]
Journey through a place where two worlds collide, our beautiful coastlines. Relax and experience stunning shores with this 10 hour loop. A good break from working from home?
Wonder what our planet would look like without oceans? Then this animation by NASA will blow your mind.
A new study has just been released, Warming assessment of the bottom-up Paris Agreement emissions pledges, that looks at how different nations are meeting their commitments, and Canada, along with China and Russia, is pumping out emissions at a rate that would raise the temperature 5.1°C by the end […]
The Earth is running out of wilderness, as farmland and city landscapes are increasing. Humans use about 40% of the land on Earth for farmland. Land on Earth in this case includes Antarctica and the far north. In fact, most of the land that hasn’t been farmed is […]
Normally you’ll hear about ice melting due to record temperatures, but now its about Microplastics found in freshly fallen Antarctic snow for the first time. Scientists working in the Ross Island region of Antarctica have found airborne microplastics in freshly fallen snow in one of the most remote […]
In estimations of ocean heat content—important when assessing and predicting the effects of climate change—calculations have often presented the rate of warming as a gradual rise from the mid-20th century to today. However, new research from UC Santa Barbara scientists Timothy DeVries and Aaron Bagnell could overturn that […]
In a remote area of northwest Greenland, an international team of scientists has made a stunning discovery, buried beneath a kilometer of ice. It’s a meteor impact crater, 300 meters deep and bigger than Paris or the Beltway around Washington, DC. It is one of the 25 largest […]
Greenland’s vast ice sheet could melt faster than previously thought over the 21st century, according to a new study. The Greenland ice sheet is the second largest mass of ice on Earth, holding enough water to raise global sea levels by 7.2 metres. Even if warming in the coming […]
Scientists have new evidence that Earth’s many periodic mass extinctions follow a cycle of about 27 million years, connecting the five major mass extinctions with more minor ones occurring throughout Earth’s life-fostering timespan. The artificial intelligence analysis could also shift how evolutionary scientists think about the aftermath of mass […]
