A major international study predicts that sea level rise from the melting of land ice could be halved this century if society were to limit warming to 1.5°Celsius.
Lockdowns last year in response to COVID-19 resulted in drastic cuts to emissions, especially from vehicle tailpipes, and yet some urban areas saw a paradoxical spike in ozone air pollution.

An exquisitely detailed global ocean model simulation from NCAR has given scientists rare insight into where baby sea turtles may go in their “lost years” after they scramble off the sandy beaches where they are born and swim into the open ocean.
An advanced new computer modeling technique has enabled scientists to project the potential extent of climate change in the world’s cities.
In a review paper published in the journal Science, a group of climate experts makes the case for including paleoclimate data in the development of climate models. Such models are used globally to assess the impacts of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, predict scenarios for future climate and propose strategies for mitigation.
