Today kids can triumphantly raise their fists in the air and shout “We told you so!” A company out of British Columbia has created a machine that can suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and put it back into the ground!
Science will help reverse climate damage but there are still lots of things you can do to battle climate change. Together we can beat climate change and become the generation that literally saves the world! Let’s become #ClimateHeroes! Here’s how.
Conservationists issued a chilling warning this week telling New Scientists that global wildlife populations are set to have fallen by more than two thirds of 1970 levels by 2020 – and there is no sign that declining wildlife numbers will slow down in our lifetime. To understand the impact, check this list of recently extinct…
An outside temperature of 120 degrees would be nightmarish, a temperature of 130 degrees would be hellish, and surely a 140-degree weather event would be an unsurvivable meteorological impossibility. But it happened – in Texas – in 1960 during a rare weather event called a “heat burst”.
Frames from a video of the spectacular SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket explosion at Cape Canaveral on September 1, 2016 captured an “anomaly” that many suspect may have caused the detonation of the rocket and destruction of its communications satellite payload. In the video frames, which came from a high-speed video source near the launch pad,…
Researchers from York University in Canada and the University of Zurich released findings yesterday which reveal a terrifying consequence of global warming. According to the researchers, the thawing ice sheet in Greenland will expose several hundred thousand gallons of military waste including chemical, biological, and radioactive waste left over from Project Iceworm.
At first it seemed like something out of a sci-fi movie but reports this week confirm the event is true. It was initially believed thousands of reindeer died from the extraordinary heatwave that struck the area in July. However, new biological tests revealed anthrax is responsible for the deaths – and it has spread to…
Scientists this week noted a highly unusual weather event – the Northern Hemisphere Jet Stream has merged with the Southern Hemisphere Jet Stream. Now that the event has occurred – what’s next? The event could cause global weather-changing events including the end of seasons.
Global warming and climate change have produced unusually dry conditions in Australia this past year, prompting a bizarre invasion of a species worthy of nightmares – well at least for the residents of southeastern Australia who say the “hairy panic” tumbleweeds are burying their cars, covering doorways, and piling up on roofs of houses.
This crack in the earth is huge – more than seven football fields long and nearly a football field in width – and it appeared virtually overnight. Scientists are not sure what caused it, how it formed, or how much bigger it may get.
