How to fight climate change? Let forests grow

The world is waking up to the potential for trees to help in the fight against climate change. Forests have always absorbed substantial carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. Still, the human disturbance has relegated forests to approximately half their pre-historic extent, with more forests... click to read more

How fisheries bring carbon dioxide back to the atmosphere

Today's global warming is increasingly threatening our planet. The Paris Agreement – an international agreement on climate change mitigation – aims to limit global warming to below 1.5-2°C relative to preindustrial levels. To meet this ambitious goal, we may need to drastically cut human-related emissions... click to read more

What can land-free Earth teach us about climate evolution?

Predicting how the climate on our planet is evolving is crucial, especially under the ongoing climate change. But it is a challenging task, because the Earth climate is a complex, ever-changing system, involving many different factors influencing each other: sunlight, atmospheric carbon dioxide, polar ice... click to read more

How life on Earth almost ended once

Life on Earth has never been so close to an end as during the environmental catastrophe that marked the Permian-Triassic boundary - 252 million years ago. Scientists have long speculated what could have triggered the sudden disappearance of so many organism groups - more than... click to read more
