Scientists predict that the western U.S. is entering the most severe "megadrought" on record. One weather modification solution is cloud seeding.
Genetically modified trees that are designed to grow faster and store more carbon could help reverse climate change.
A new Xprize competition funded by Elon Musk offers $100 million in prizes for scalable direct carbon capture technology.
Climate change is altering wine making as we know it. Researchers at UC Davis have identified what makes some grapes more resistant to water stress.
China is using cloud seeding to create rain where and when it’s needed. Will it try to use geoengineering to combat climate change next?
Using CRISPR, scientists have identified a gene that could determine whether coral reefs are highly susceptible to bleaching or not.
By improving photosynthesis, we can get more food from our farmland.
Carbon capture technology is here, but how do we make it feasible?
Europe’s ambitious Destination Earth project aims to simulate climate systems — and human impact — to the kilometer.
The National Guard has used drones to create forest fire maps since 2017. New AI upgrades could make the maps in minutes, not hours.
Arctic sea ice is more than majestic; it also reflects the sun’s rays. But young, thin ice melts fast. Can silica powder reflect enough sun to help it survive?
These doctors are coming together to address their collective carbon footprint, explore new solutions, and improve sustainability in healthcare.
Solar geoengineering would cool global temperatures — is it worth it?
Norwegian company OceanTherm uses bubble nets to keep ice out of fjords. Could a hurricane net weaken the storms?
The president of Kiribati announced a new plan to fight against sea level rise: raise the islands.
Fertilizer is needed to feed the world, but its production comes with a carbon footprint. This solar-powered strategy may reduce that.
This high-tech material could reverse global warming by using radiative cooling to lower the Earth’s rising temperature.
The building sector is one of the biggest contributors of greenhouse gas emissions. But new research suggests that trend could stop, and even reverse because of a new type of green building.
