A team of researchers found the southernmost tree and forest on Earth at the extreme tip of South America. Wind limits where trees grow on Isla Hornos and those wind patterns are shifting.
Laura went from a tropical storm to a major hurricane in less than 24 hours, sending coastal residents scrambling to prepare. Hurricanes Harvey and Michael exploded in strength in similar ways.
A mix of wind, solar photovoltaics, and some natural gas would be more cost-effective than Inga 3 for South Africa and the DRC.
Beyond buying a fish tank or house plants, there are a number of creative ways to bring nature’s calming effects into your home.
Wind travels all over the world. Where does it come from, and why?
Environmentalists say the new film has caused untold damage at a time when change has never been more urgent. So why is it so controversial?
The transformation of the national electricity market has “progressed at a remarkable pace and scale” over the last year as it moves towards renewables, but security remains a critical issue.
Weaker winds and higher temperatures are making airlines less efficient.
Unpacking what South Africa’s new energy plan says about nuclear energy.
Solar and wind can’t deliver power on demand. But overbuilding solar and wind, and simply dumping unneeded energy, would go a long way to smoothing out those bumps, study finds.
It’s hard to believe, but big storms and hurricanes are caused by tiny particles moving around in the atmosphere.
Twelve power projects are in the running for federal government dollars: six pumped hydro, five gas and one coal. It’s clear which one shouldn’t be on the list, for economic and environmental reasons.
People who bloat don’t produce more abdominal gas than others but they might have problems getting rid of it.
Haze from Northern California wildfires has drifted as far east as Philadelphia. Wildfire smoke contains many potentially toxic substances, so anyone exposed to it should take basic precautions.
The dry, hot, downslope Santa Ana winds of Southern California fan late fall wildfires that have largely traveled through – and are fueled by – homes and other structures.
South Africa’s sunshine and coastlines are ideal for renewable energy generation but the country’s struggling to take advantage of this.
Waves lap against the shore on the south coast of England and the North coast of France – but the answer to this puzzle is in the wind and the land, not the waves themselves.
A chance discovery of some kelp that floated for 20,000km before washing up on an Antarctic beach has opened up a new chapter in our understanding of the currents that swirl around the Southern Ocean.
Large-scale solar and wind tend to push energy prices down, which sounds great as a consumer. But that makes keeping the grid in constant balance harder.
Solar photovoltaics and wind power are on track to supplant fossil-fuel-based electricity generation by the 2030s. The only thing holding back the renewable revolution is politics.
