A Darker Arctic is Making the Earth Warm Faster

A new study from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography reveals a troubling trend in the Arctic: as the planet warms and the ice caps melt, the Earth is losing its ability to reflect heat back into space. This natural amount of light reflected from planet’s

Ocean acidification stresses fish

Climate change got you anxious? You’re not alone. Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography have found that ocean acidification, a direct result of increased CO2 in the atmosphere, makes fish anxious. The absorption of human-produced carbon dioxide into the world’s oceans is causing surface waters to decline in pH, corresponding to a rise in acidity. […]
