People who live near wind turbines strongly prefer wind over power plants that generate electricity from fossil fuels, nuclear and even solar, a new study shows. The results apply across demographics in urban or rural areas, red and blue states, and even in coal-producing states.
Chimpanzee cultures are vanishing before our eyes. Saving them will require a new approach to conservation.
Heat-induced heart attacks are increasing, suggesting that climate change poses a risk to cardiovascular health. The German study also shows that the health impacts of climate change aren’t limited to urban areas.
Years of data suggest that the rise of farmed fish has not helped to protect wild ones from overexploitation. But aquaculture can still be a force for good, a new study posits.
Solar geoengineering raises the risk of intensifying storms and drought. But a new study finds that halving global warming by using just the right amount of geoengineering could eliminate these side effects.
Confronted with the brutality of wildlife poaching, the urge to hurt the perpetrators is primal. It might even be an effective conservation strategy — but for how long? And at what cost?
Researchers have calculated just how much fish stocks, fishers, and seafood consumers worldwide stand to gain from meeting the climate benchmarks set out in the Paris Agreement.
In the last two decades fishers off America's east coast have had to travel ever-further to follow their catch, as climate change edges fish polewards to cooler seas, a new study finds.
By mimicking the lopsided pyramidal structures found on firefly bellies, researchers have come up with a new light-emitting diode (LED) that could use less energy than today’s LED light bulbs.
Given that some climate mitigation scenarios predict that more than 4 percent of Earth’s land area could be used for bioenergy crops, this is not an academic concern.
