Earth might remain in its most popular five-year duration ever tape-recorded

Earth might remain in its most popular five-year duration ever tape-recorded

Mean surface temperature change during the North American summer in 2019 compared to 1981-2010. NASA/GISS We've just sweltered through the the hottest July ever recorded, complete with extreme heatwaves, and today a landmark report by a conglomerate of climate research organizations demonstrates the planet is warming like never before. The new assessment, commissioned by the United…

The future of sea level rise may be written into the walls of coastal Spanish caves. Mineral “bathtub rings” deposited inside the limestone Artà Caves on the Balearic island of Mallorca show how high seas rose during the Pliocene Epoch — a time when Earth was about as warm as it’s expected to get by…
Engineers Can Assist In Saving The Earth

Engineers Can Assist In Saving The Earth

More than two decades ago, the CEO of BP, one of the biggest oil and gas companies in the world – gave a speech to the 1997 graduating class at Stanford University. In the speech, John Browne acknowledged for the first time the link between the fossil fuel industry and global warming. Afterward, the American…
How ancient oceans of lava might have improved Earth’s oxygen levels

How ancient oceans of lava might have improved Earth’s oxygen levels

We may have ancient magma oceans to thank for Earth’s breathable air. Shortly after the planet’s formation about 4.5 billion years ago, the mantle somehow became much richer in oxygen than it was originally. That rock began leaking molecules like carbon dioxide and water into the oxygen-poor atmosphere — helping to jump-start conditions suitable for…

Earth is a spaceship, and the Amazon is an essential part of our life-support system, producing as much as 20% of our oxygen. Here’s why we require the world’s biggest rain forest.

The Amazon rainforest is burning: Brazil has seen more than 74,000 fires this year ⁠— nearly double 2018's total of about 40,000 fires. About 10,000 new fires started in the last week alone, mostly lit by people clearing land for crops and grazing. David Sirota, a political commentator who writes speeches for Bernie Sanders, put…

The question of how life on Earth first emerged is one that humans have been asking themselves since time immemorial. While scientists are relatively confident about when it happened, there has been no definitive answer as to why it did. How did amino acids, the chemical building blocks of life, come together roughly four billion…

The Moon is Older Than Researchers Idea

The Moon is Older Than Researchers Idea

The most comprehensive and widely-held theory of how the Moon formed is called the ‘giant impact hypothesis.’ That hypothesis shows that about 150 million years after the Solar System formed, a roughly Mars-sized planet named Theia collided with Earth. Though the timeline is hotly-debated in the scientific community, we know that this collision melted Theia…
