Comments Off on Alarming study shows disastrous climate change will strike much sooner than expected

A team of Australian scientists and economists just published a new study that shows disastrous global warming will strike far sooner than expected. The model incorporated data for economic and population growth to create a “global energy tracker” that resulted in dire predictions: by 2020, temperatures will rise 1.5°C over pre-industrial levels, and by 2030 we’ll reach the 2°C target set in Paris. Their suggestions for how to fight climate change would shock most politicians. Read the rest of Alarming study shows disastrous climate change will strike much sooner than expected

New study shows global biodiversity loss can be reversed by tackling climate change

Comments Off on New study shows global biodiversity loss can be reversed by tackling climate change

You would be hard pressed to find someone who can deny that humanity has had a drastic and dire impact on nearly every other species on the planet over the course of our species’ existence. A new study published in the journal Nature offers a broad view of exactly how much biodiversity has been lost since the 16th century, but also gives hope that some of this damage can be reversed if humanity takes some immediate and drastic action to tackle climate change. It turns out that developing strong carbon markets are the key to reversing biodiversity losses.

Comments Off on New study shows that hand-washing dishes may help prevent allergies

Could dishwashers cause allergies? A recent study found that children who come from homes where dishes are washed by hand have fewer allergies than those in homes where the dishes are washed by machine. Although the research is still in its infant stages, it is an interesting starting point for solving modern allergies.

Comments Off on New Study Shows Plants Talk to Each Other Through the Soil

Image via Shutterstock A new study conducted by Dr. David Johnson at the University of Aberdeen found that plants actually communicate with one another through the soil. The study shows that when vegetables are infected with certain diseases , they alert other nearby plants to activate genes to ward off the disease when it heads their way. The key to this communication is a soil fungus that acts as a messenger.

Comments Off on New Study Shows Sea Levels will Rise Two Feet in Next 70 Years

A new study in the journal Scientific Reports estimates that melting ice will cause sea levels to rise 2 feet within the next 70 years , and a whopping 8 feet by the year 2200. Scientists believe that sea levels will most likely continue to rise until the sea is 25 to 30 feet higher than it is today, wiping many coastal cities and island nations completely off the map.

Pacific Ocean Warming at Fastest Rate in 10,000 Years, Study Shows

Comments Off on Pacific Ocean Warming at Fastest Rate in 10,000 Years, Study Shows

Image via Shutterstock A new study published in the journal  Science finds that global warming slowed down in recent years because oceans have been absorbing much of the heat. The paper — “Pacific Ocean Heat Content During the Past 10,000 Years” — shows that the Pacific Ocean in particular is warming at a rate 15 times greater in the last 60 years than at any time in the last 10,000 years.

Study Shows U.S Amphibians Disappearing at ‘Alarming and Rapid Rate’

Comments Off on Study Shows U.S Amphibians Disappearing at ‘Alarming and Rapid Rate’

Amphibians, with their permeable skin, delicate membranes, and semi-aquatic habitats, have long been considered to be bioindicators . These species are generally the first to feel environmental stresses and they can provide warning signs for the overall health of ecosystems; bad news for salamanders, frogs, newts, and toads means trouble for the rest of the web of life. A startling new study published in PLoS One by scientists from the US Geological Survey found that amphibians in the United States are disappearing so rapidly that they could vanish from half of their habitats in the next 20 years. The nine-year study found that endangered species are predicted to fare even worse and they could die off in as few as six years.

Comments Off on Tesla Announces Plans to Triple its Supercharger Stations by the End of June

Tesla is on a bit of a roll these days. Not only did the electric car company pay back its loan to the federal government nine years early, but it also just announced plans to triple its car charging network by the end of June. That means that any Tesla owner will be able to juice up (for free) in one of dozens of stations along the coasts by the end of next month. And if all goes according to plan, the network will be expanded to over 100 stations by 2015.
