How to Protect Coastal Regions from Flooding Risks

Combating climate change requires battling threats on multiple fronts, especially when it comes to flooding. Coastal residents have a unique waterborne threat that destroys livelihoods numerous times each year. We should consider ways to protect these regions from flooding and advocate for long-term solutions.

Climate change transforming circulation patterns in Earth’s oceans and atmosphere – the results can be catastrophic

Large-scale circulation patterns can be found throughout Earth’s oceans and atmosphere, and play a crucial role in maintaining the stability of regional climates. As the climate warms, researchers find that these patterns are experiencing a fundamental transformation, which can result in catastrophic consequences. According to scientists, these changes could lead to hotter, drier conditions in …

AI Successfully Controls Plasma in Nuclear Fusion Experiment. Are we finally close to the Fusion Power?

To keep Earth from dangerous ongoing global warming, the world is looking for an energy source without CO2 emissions. There is actually a dream candidate: successfully achieving nuclear fusion holds the promise of delivering a limitless, sustainable source of clean energy.

Is Individual Action Enough to Fight Climate Change?

The issue of climate change has gained more attention over the last few years. In fact, the earth’s average surface temperature has risen about 2.12°F since the late 19th century. The problem continues as we rely on fossil fuels, which raise greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, there is the debate about who is to blame: individuals …

Carbon Capture Technology Explained (Video)

As a civilization, we’ll pay a huge price if we can’t get carbon out of the Earth’s atmosphere because of the ongoing runaway climate change. Some kind of carbon capture technology that captures atmospheric carbon dioxide and stores it underground became vital to keep Earth from dangerous global warming. We need to clean up the …

3 Benefits of Using Smart Mooring In Monitoring Climate Change

One of the parts most damaged by the current rate of climate change is Earth’s bodies of water. Scientific forecasts have estimated that in the next century, almost all coral reef habitats on our planet will be decimated. This is largely due to continuing ocean acidification among other practices done by humans, which all drastically …

Ocean Acidification: Mapping the Impact of Carbon Emissions on the Oceans

The climate crisis and the chemistry of the oceans are inextricably connected. The oceans have absorbed close to a third of our carbon dioxide emissions since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, leading to an increasingly acidic environment (hence the term, the Ocean Acidification) and making it more difficult for organisms such as corals, mollusks, …
