Carbon dioxide makes up less than one-twentieth of 1% of Earth's atmosphere. How does this relatively scarce gas control Earth's thermostat?
The world's fastest-growing cities are in the tropics. They are highly exposed to climate change, especially as urban heat island effects and humidity magnify the impacts of increasing heatwaves.
Recent changes to the ball seem to be juicing hitters' stats. But could other factors, like the climate and advanced analytics, also be playing a role?
An electric fan cools you down in extreme heat, but not if you're old.
Detecting drier or wetter conditions is crucial for insect survival. We've long known they can do this – now researchers have discovered the genetic and neural basis for their humidity-sensing system.
Increases in humidity caused as a result of climate change are reducing labour productivity and it’s only likely to get worse…
