Human Carbon Dioxide Emissions could match with PETM in the next 140 Years

Human Carbon Dioxide Emissions could match with PETM in the next 140 Years

According to a recent study, the carbon levels on Earth may reach the levels observed during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) in fewer than 5 generations. PETM is a global warming event that took place around 56 million years ago and is the last major greenhouse event known to humanity. Researchers found that humans are…

Bees are on the Brink of Extinction

Bees are on the Brink of Extinction

Human actions are pushing many species of bees towards extinction. Closely related to wasps, bees are integral for reproduction of plants. Bees carry out an important task called ‘Pollination’. It is the process by which pollen is transferred from the male part of the plant to the female part. When a bee lands on a…

Oceans are Warming Even Faster than Previous Estimates

Oceans are Warming Even Faster than Previous Estimates

Four different studies reveal that greenhouse gases are raising temperatures of oceans at a much rapid rate than previously believed. Ocean Heating is a critical marker of climate change because most of the excessive solar energy absorbed by the greenhouse gases is accumulated in oceans. In addition to that, ocean temperatures don’t experience year-to-year variations…

Venus ‘Suggests’ that Climate Change Should be Taken Seriously

Venus ‘Suggests’ that Climate Change Should be Taken Seriously

The climatic destruction of Venus offers a great example to take a lead from and we need to mold our ways immediately to preserve our planet. The recent studies at NASA suggest that about 2 billion years ago, Venus was once a habitable planet with shallow, liquid-water oceans and a habitable surface. Contrary to that,…

Climate Change is having a Drastic Impact on the National Parks

The annual amount of rainfall decreased by more than 12% in the National Parks from 1895 to 2010 while it got hotter by more than 1oC. Climate change is probably the most critical challenge faced by the humanity in today’s world. Experts have predicted some seriously destructive results if it continues to occur at the…

Life is quite possible on Water Worlds

Life is quite possible on Water Worlds

The conditions for life surviving on planets, entirely covered in water, are more fluid than previously thought, opening up the possibility that water worlds could be habitable. Scientists thought that planets covered in a deep ocean would not support life assuming the absence of cycling of the minerals and gases keeping Earth’s climate stable. A…

Will Climate Change be paused for 15 years? A new theory claims

Will Climate Change be paused for 15 years? A new theory claims

Scientists have a new theory about the air-conditioning system of the Earth. Climate change (Global Warming) is one of the biggest worries of humanity these days as it is literally endangering the future of our species. Ironically, humans themselves have contributed the most in bringing these changes in climate. Experts from all parts of the…

What are Exoplanets and what you should know about them?

What are Exoplanets and what you should know about them?

Exoplanets are heavenly bodies beyond our solar system where life could be possible. The search for signs of life in the outside world took humans beyond our solar system and a lot of planets, orbiting different stars, were found there. They are called Exoplanets as they are located outside our solar system. They come in…
