An international team of researchers has found that the Antarctic Ice Sheet plays a major role in regional and global climate variability – a discovery that may also help explain why sea ice in the Southern Hemisphere has been increasing despite the warming of the rest of the Earth.
Hugh Hunt (Department of Engineering) discusses whether we could directly engineer the climate and refreeze the poles.
New research suggests that a temperature increase of 4 degrees is likely to “saturate” areas of dense vegetation with carbon, preventing plants from helping to balance CO2 escalation - and consequently accelerating climate change.
Reducing consumption of red and processed meat could make a major contribution to cutting greenhouse gas emissions18 Sep 2012
Research quantifies the reduction in greenhouse gases, as well the effect it would have on health, if UK cut amount of red and processed meat eaten.
