Farmerfish territories can become miniature sanctuaries for coral recovery
A new kind of compostable plastic coating made from wood pulp and crustacean shells could be a sustainable alternative to the petroleum-based plastic that is used for food packaging.
If we inject sun-reflecting particles into the atmosphere, we could create a cooler planet—and it seems logical that this would benefit crops troubled by heat stress. But a new study discovers that geoengineering might harm crops, not help them.
The fossil fuel industry itself may be the cause. Cheap shale gas produced by fracking has brought down the coal industry, according to a new report.
Researchers don’t hide findings that fail to support the prevailing scientific view of global climate change. Even so, they may spin results in subtle ways.
Carbon in transit tripled between 1995 and 2012—accounting for about 10% of global emissions in 2016
Moths drawn to artificial sources of light may do less work pollinating plants, according to the first study of the effect of streetlights on moth behavior.
Carbon capture is more difficult on moving vehicles than stationary smokestacks. But a proposed new system could make it feasible.
Will birds be able to keep up with a changing climate? It’s a troubling question—but for at least some species, the answer might be a hopeful one.
Think about the ways that nature generates economic value. Environmental stewardship, however, the hard work of people restoring ecosystems, picking up litter, and helping animals, likely doesn’t enter the equation. Yet the value might be surprisingly high.
