Massive swathes of wilderness and the lives of billions of animals were extinguished into ash and smoke during Australia’s Black Summer bushfires. The resulting haze suffocated major cities, triggered fatal health emergencies, and turned distant glaciers brown. Now researchers have directly traced how some of this burnt biomass contributed to the largest stratospheric warming in

A team of scientists has discovered a simple, low-energy way to break apart one of the largest groups of ‘forever chemicals’, nefarious pollutants that have been linked to environmental harm and human health concerns. While practical applications are still a way off, scientists are in awe of the new technique’s potential. In detailed simulations, PFAS

The world’s biggest ice sheet could cause “several meters” of sea-level rise over centuries if the global temperature rises more than 2 °C, according to a British study published Wednesday. Researchers at Durham University concluded that if global greenhouse emissions remain high, the melting East Antarctica Ice Sheet (EAIS) could cause nearly half a meter

The Siberian tundra could disappear by the year 2500, unless greenhouse gas emissions are dramatically reduced.  Even in the best-case scenarios, two-thirds of this landscape – defined by its short growing season and cover of grasses, moss, shrubs and lichens – could vanish, leaving behind two fragments separated by 1,553 miles (2,500 kilometers), scientists recently predicted. And
