July 2, 2020 Mediterranean winters could bring 40% less rain, hurting farmers in what’s called the cradle of agriculture – and not only farmers.
July 1, 2020 An Alaskan volcano once spurred climate change, darkening Mediterranean skies, launching a famine and possibly changing history.
June 30, 2020 Ocean sensitivity to atmospheric change is well established. But just how sensitive the oceans are remains a surprise to science.
June 29, 2020 Did eruptions set ancient coal fires burning? Global heating happened 250 million years ago, just as it is happening now.
