How will crops fare under climate change? Depends on how you ask

The damage scientists expect climate change to do to crop yields can differ greatly depending on which type of model was used to make those projections, according to research based at Princeton University.

A devastating combination of global warming and El Niño is responsible for causing extreme temperatures in April 2016 in Southeast Asia, scientists have found.

Humans have mastered the art of cooperation better than any other animal species. However, many social dilemmas remain unsolved, such as over-fishing of the seas, rising global green-house gas emissions or accommodating large numbers of refugees. While we are in charge of most of our lives, in these dilemmas, representatives make decisions for us. Scientists have published the first experimental investigation into how representatives behave in social dilemmas in a new report.

Methane bubbling off Svalbard is not a source of atmospheric greenhouse gas -- ScienceDaily

Methane bubbling off Svalbard is not a source of atmospheric greenhouse gas

Methane hydrate recovered from ocean sediments off Svalbard dissociates into water and methane gas under surface pressure and temperature conditions, allowing the methane released to be lit on fire.

A novel study of a Tibetan alpine meadow has shown a clear link between higher biodiversity and greater infectious disease resistance...We showed unequivocally that greater biodiversity among the meadow plants reduced the overall incidence of fungal disease, even though there were more pathogens."  A second experiment looked at the impact on disease of artificial warming and nitrogen fertiliser, and showed that both warming and nitrogen fertiliser increased the disease load...
