The ocean can absorb less CO2 because it reduces man-made carbon emissions

Sea water could quickly respond to falling human carbon emissions by absorbing less from the atmosphere. Photo credit: Kevin Krajick / Earth Institute Shrinkage through COVID-19 can be a typical example. According to a new study, volcanic eruptions and man-made changes in the atmosphere are affecting the rate at which the ocean absorbs carbon dioxide. The ocean is so sensitive …

Researchers discover the oldest handmade cord that was not man-made

Neanderthals made cords and cords out of fibers long before the early humans started the technique after a new archaeological discovery. Researchers have found a 6.2-millimeter fiber fragment that was dated around 41,000 to 52,000 years ago – a little older than the previous record holder, a 19,000-year-old fragment that was found in Israel. The discovery was made in a …

Corona virus locks cause a decrease in man-made seismic noise worldwide

Seismometers around the world are experiencing decreased seismic activity due to quarantine measures taken by many governments to stop Sars-CoV-2 virus infection. Seismometers are instruments that react to ground movements caused, for example, by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and explosions. The recorded data are used to locate and characterize earthquakes and to study the internal structure of the earth. Modern seismometers …

Wind shifts caused by man-made global warming are causing the melting ice of the West Antarctic

August 16 (UPI) – According to a new study, man-made climate change triggered wind shifts in the Antarctic that accelerated the accelerated melting on the west coast of the continent. The study was published this week in Nature magazine Earth Sciences – the first direct link between man-made global warming and the fast-melting glaciers of the West Antarctic. Scientists have …

Man-made climate change has now reached the gold standard

A new analysis of 40 years of satellite data shows that it is almost certain that humanity is actively causing global climate change. Climate deniers often claim, given overwhelming evidence, that the planet is heating up, and natural disasters are becoming more intense and frequent just because they are – falsely claiming that humanity's love affair with fossil fuels has …

Man-made climate change is paralyzing the oyster industry in Texas. Can hybrid reefs help clams survive?

A new Nature Conservancy project aims to rebuild oyster reefs that can withstand hurricanes, floods and over-harvests. The Gulf of Mexico is about to house a new species of oyster reef in its waters. In November, Nature Conservancy, a nonprofit environmental conservation program, launched a unique restoration project that will build a 60-acre reef in Copano Bay, an estuary on …
