More Antarctic meltwater is surfacing than was previously known, modifying the climate, preventing sea ice from forming and boosting marine productivity– according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA).
People are more engaged in reducing carbon emissions than previously thought - and governments, scientists and companies should listen to them - according to new research from the University of East Anglia and the UK Energy Research Centre.
Many species might be left vulnerable in the face of climate change, unable to adapt their physiologies to respond to rapid global warming.
Until now, researchers have found no evidence of global tectonic activity on planets outside our solar system.
Forager ants do it, vampire bats do it, guppies do it, and mandrills do it. Long before humans learned about and started “social distancing due to COVID-19,” animals in nature intuitively practiced social distancing when one of their own became sick.
