    Pollution declines from pandemic shutdowns may aid in answering long-standing questions about how aerosols influence climate As the world scrambles to contain the spread of COVID-19, many economic activities have ground to a halt, leading to marked reductions in air pollution. And with the skies clearing, researchers are getting an unprecedented chance to help answer […]

    Some small mammals could be more resilient to higher temperatures than first thought, with greater variability between species. As human activity shapes Earth’s climate, animals must increasingly adapt to new environmental conditions. The thermoneutral zone — the ambient temperature range in which mammals can maintain their body temperature without expending extra energy — is a […]

    We are moving into one of the biggest scientific experiments of all time. Since the invention of the telescope, the Sun’s activity has been recorded by counting the number of sunspots on its surface.  According to these records, the number of sunspots rises and falls in an eleven year cycle.  But scientists have detected a […]

    London, 6 April: A former BBC science correspondent says that there remains a real possibility that unusual solar behaviour could influence the Earth’s climate, bringing cooler temperatures  for the next decade. Despite rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the reduction in solar activity along with cooling from other long-term terrestrial climate variables could mean we might see a slowdown […]

    Researchers have found evidence of rainforests near the South Pole 90 million years ago, suggesting the climate was exceptionally warm at the time. A team from the UK and Germany discovered forest soil from the Cretaceous period within 900 km of the South Pole. Their analysis of the preserved roots, pollen and spores shows that […]

    Today (Monday, March 30) is the 30th anniversary of our publication in Science describing the first satellite-based dataset for climate monitoring. While much has happened in the last 30 years, I thought it might be interesting for people to know what led up to the dataset’s development, and some of the politics and behind-the-scenes happenings in the early […]

    The current global crisis will be a test of just how much economic pain is required to substantially reduce CO2 emissions Some global warming alarmists are celebrating the current economic downturn as just what is needed to avert climate catastrophe. I’ve seen a couple estimates that China’s manufacturing and commerce might have seen up at 40% […]

    “If you think the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies is a cosy consensus of agreeing, you’re very wrong indeed”. It was on Wednesday March 11 — 10 days ago — that some of the experts on the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies began to realise that the coronavirus was spreading through the UK too […]
