Changes in snowmelt threaten farmers in western US

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 19:55
Farmers in parts of the western United States who rely on snowmelt to help irrigate their crops will be among the hardest hit in the world by climate change, a new study reveals.

Why relying on new technology won't save the planet

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 19:55
Over-reliance on promises of new technology to solve climate change is enabling delay, say researchers. They argue instead for cultural, social and political transformation to enable widespread deployment of both behavioral and technological responses to climate change.

With shrinking snowpack, drought predictability melting away

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 19:55
New research suggests that during the 21st century, our ability to predict drought using snow will literally melt away.

Aquaculture at the crossroads of global warming and antimicrobial resistance

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 19:54
Antimicrobial resistance is responsible for some 700,000 deaths each year worldwide. In relation to this phenomenon, researchers have raised the alarm regarding the development of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria in aquaculture, which is affecting fish production and human health worldwide. Their study established for the first time a link between global warming and an increased risk of antimicrobial resistance, and warned against inappropriate use of antibiotics.

Cable bacteria can drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions from rice cultivation

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 17:50
The rice fields account for five percent of global emissions of the greenhouse gas methane, which is 25 times stronger than CO2. Researchers have found that cable bacteria could be an important part of the solution. In the laboratory, they have grown rice in soil with and without cable bacteria, and the pots with cable bacteria emitted 93% less methane than the pots without cable bacteria.

North pole soon to be ice free in summer

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 17:48
The Arctic Ocean in summer will very likely be ice free before 2050, at least temporally, according to new research. The efficacy of climate-protection measures will determine how often and for how long.

Rising carbon dioxide levels will change marine habitats and fish communities

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 15:42
Researchers showed that elevated dissolved CO2 conditions can lead to a 45% decrease of fish diversity.
