Maintaining your sodium levels in a heatwave

Most of the time, we are told to cut down on the amount of salt in our diet, as this increases blood pressure and is a significant risk factor for heart disease and stroke, however, in a heatwave, things are rather different.

Professor Georgiy L. Stenchikov from the physical science and engineering division, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology looks at the future of water with a specialised focus on climate change in the middle east.
climate change risks, global warming

Could the global warming limit of 1.5°C reverse climate change risks?

New research finds that if we can limit global warming to 1.5°C, this could reduce climate change risks by up to 85%, and mitigate serious harms posed to humans .

Scientists create strategy for protecting moths from climate change

Through the prediction of species movement, researchers identify areas in need of habitat restoration to continue protecting moths.
policymakers, methane emissions

Do policymakers undervalue how dangerous methane emissions are?

Methane emissions have been increasing rapidly in recent years, but a study finds policymakers often neglect this information when addressing climate change.
ocean warming

Deep ocean warming to increase by 0.2°C in the next 50 years

Scientists say deep ocean warming will increase by 0.2°C, as they find excess heat from the subtropical North Atlantic - at depths of 700m.

Climate change is triggering unexpected glacial movement

Scientists say melting snow and ice, seeping between Arctic glaciers, puts even thick glaciers at risk of sudden collapse from glacial movement.

Ozone is heating the planet more than scientists previously thought

NSF Funded research reveals Ozone in the atmosphere has weakened one of the Earth’s main cooling mechanisms.

Using marine heatwave forecasts to predict ecological impacts

Marine heatwave forecasts could potentially provide up to one year’s notice of changes to ocean temperatures, predicting effects on ecosystems.
antarctic sea ice

Antarctic sea ice shrunk to less than 2 million square kilometres

The lowest record yet of Antarctic Sea ice has shown that its rapid decline due to global warming is cyclical – and is bound to drop again soon.
1.5 degree, carbon emissions

UN report: Could we be on a path to doubling the 1.5 degree limit?

The latest UN climate report warns the lack of time the world has to reduce its global warming to the 1.5 degree limit - it’s ‘now or never’ until a global environmental breakdown.
ocean sound transmission, acoustic hotspots

Climate change increases the speed of ocean sound transmission

Ocean sound transmission is being sped up due to global warming induced by climate change – threatening marine species as sounds travel faster and become louder.
