Rules to cut carbon emissions also reduce harmful air pollution
May 28, 2014 08:58 AM - ClickGreen Staff, ClickGreen
Setting strong standards for climate-changing carbon emissions from power stations would provide the added bonus of reducing other air pollutants that can make people sick and damage the environment. A first-of-its-kind study released today by scientists at Syracuse University and Harvard has mapped the potential environmental and human health benefits of power plant carbon standards and found potential for reductions of more than 750 thousand tons of other harmful air pollutants across the US.
Eagles facing threat from diclofenac
May 27, 2014 08:02 AM - ClickGreen Staff, ClickGreen
Just months after the news that the vulture-killing drug diclofenac had been licensed for veterinary use in Europe, two groundbreaking scientific studies have revealed that a greater diversity of birds of prey, including the golden eagle, are also susceptible to its effects. These findings strengthen the case for banning veterinary diclofenac across Europe and for strengthening bans and enforcement of bans in South Asia to stop the illegal misuse of human diclofenac to treat livestock.

A world expert on solar panels will today outline how his pioneering work is set to significantly improve the performance of solar panels whilst simultaneously contributing to their cost being reduced by half. The technology will be commercialized within the next five years.
Greenland will be far greater contributor to sea rise than expected
May 19, 2014 07:58 AM - ClickGreen Staff, ClickGreen
Greenland's icy reaches are far more vulnerable to warm ocean waters from climate change than had been thought, according to new research by UC Irvine and NASA glaciologists. The work, published today in Nature Geoscience, shows previously uncharted deep valleys stretching for dozens of miles under the Greenland Ice Sheet. The bedrock canyons sit well below sea level, meaning that as subtropical Atlantic waters hit the fronts of hundreds of glaciers, those edges will erode much further than had been assumed and release far greater amounts of water.
Científicos ven hacia el futuro para proteger a Londres del creciente nivel del mar.

Los científicos han desarrollado un nuevo método para revelar cómo los niveles del mar podrían subir en todo el mundo durante todo el siglo para abordar el controvertido tema de si la tasa de aumento del nivel del mar está creciendo. El equipo internacional de investigadores, dirigido por la Universidad de Southampton y entre ellos científicos del Centro Nacional de Oceanografía de la Universidad de Australia Occidental, la Universidad del Sur de Florida, la Universidad Nacional de Australia y la Universidad de Seigen en Alemania, analizaron 10 datos de monitoreo de largo plazo del nivel del mar ubicados en todo el mundo. Los científicos miraron hacia el futuro para identificar el momento en el que las aceleraciones del nivel del mar podrían ser reconocidas de una manera significativa.
