Greenland lost 20% more ice than previously estimated: Study

A new study has revealed that nearly every glacier in Greenland has thinned or retreated over the past few decades /smart-living/environment/greenland-ice-loss-sea-level-rise-global-warming-climate-change-111705579113508.html 111705579113508 story Due to global warming, glaciers in Greenland are melting five times faster than 20 years ago, scientists from the University of Copenhagen revealed in November last year. Now, a new study shows […]

Climate change is making forests less productive: Study

Forests play an important role in regulating Earth’s climate. They work as carbon sinks that sequester approximately 25% of human carbon emissions every year /smart-living/environment/climate-change-carbon-forests-productivity-environment-111705429017920.html 111705429017920 story Climate change’s impact on the world’s forests has been a growing concern. Rising temperatures, droughts, wildfires, and disease outbreaks have been significantly affecting trees. Now, a new study […]

Alarming ocean temperatures helped make 2023 the hottest year

In 2023, sea surface temperature and the energy stored in the upper 2000 metres of the ocean both reached record highs /smart-living/environment/ocean-temperature-global-warming-2023-climate-change-111705064520604.html 111705064520604 story Last year was Earth’s hottest on record by a significant margin and possibly the world’s warmest in the last 100,000 years, the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) said earlier […]

Rising temperatures causing more carbon emissions in the Arctic: Study

A new study shows that a region of the Arctic Ocean is releasing more carbon than it is capable of absorbing /smart-living/environment/arctic-ocean-carbon-emissions-nasa-climate-change-111703246266228.html 111703246266228 story Scientists have estimated that the Arctic Ocean absorbs as much as 180 million metric tons of carbon every year – making it one of Earth’s most important carbon sinks. Now, a […]

Ice age could help predict oceans’ response to global warming: Study

The new study could help improve predictions on how ocean carbon cycles will respond to global warming and ongoing climate change /smart-living/innovation/ice-age-oceans-global-warming-climate-change-111705924173424.html 111705924173424 story Scientists have found a new way to measure the ocean oxygen level and its association with carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere during the last ice age, which ended over 11,000 […]

Global warming intensifies heavy rain even more than expected: Study

Scientists have warned that state-of-the-art climate models drastically underestimate how much extreme rainfall increases under global warming /smart-living/environment/global-warming-heavy-rain-floods-cop28-climate-change-111701154940726.html 111701154940726 story In a new study published on 27 November, scientists have said that state-of-the-art climate models drastically underestimate how much extreme rainfall increases under global warming. The researchers warned that this could lead to a future […]

Valentine’s Red Roses Vulnerable to Climate Shifts

The enduring tradition of gifting roses on Valentines Day is at risk, according to a recent Christian Aid report highlighting the global impact of climate change on rose cultivation, including in the UK. Nearly 60 percent of all exported roses come from five countries in the global south which face growing dangers from extreme weather. […]
