Sid Perkins WASHINGTON, DC ? Climate change will pose a number of challenges to food safety in the coming decades, from boosting the rates of food- and water-borne illnesses to enabling the spread of pathogens, researchers reported Monday at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Depending on the greenhouse gas emissions scenario, global average temperature is …

Sid Perkins WASHINGTON, DC ? Although no one knows the ultimate effects of climate change on marine ecosystems, scientists know enough about the oceans to proceed with adaptation, researchers reported Saturday at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. And while many previous studies have focused on minimizing detriments to single species of economic importance, future efforts …

Sid Perkins WASHINGTON, DC ? Climate change will dramatically alter marine ecosystems, wreaking havoc on many fisheries and exacting a huge economic toll, researchers reported today at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Despite being overexploited, the world?s fisheries are still profitable: In 2003, they generated more than $24 billion in wages for fishermen, profits for companies …

Sid Perkins In the coming decades, the world?s coral reefs will suffer a variety of indignities, from global threats such as warming seas and ocean acidification to local and regional problems such as overfishing and nutrient-rich runoff. If carbon dioxide emissions remain high until the end of the century, reef coverage may drop by 50 percent or more even if local …

Sid Perkins A well-designed scientific experiment shouldn?t affect the behavior of its subjects or cause them harm. Yet that?s exactly the result of using flipper bands to identify individual penguins during field studies, one team of researchers now contends. In recent years, scientists have increasingly looked to penguins as a source of data about climate change. The new evidence comes from a …

Olive Heffernan Next spring will bring a much-awaited and exciting new addition to the family of Nature journals. The newest of Nature's research journals, Nature Climate Change will dedicate its coverage to one of the greatest challenges for science and society. By and large, society now accepts that climate change is happening. But the science of global climate change is far from settled …

Alicia Newton Kudzu vines have become a wide-spread but unwelcome sight throughout much of the southeastern United States. The noxious weed ? native to Asia and once planted to prevent soil erosion ? has spread rapidly, smothering native species in its wake. But the vine may be wreaking atmospheric havoc as well. In a paper in Proceedings of the National Academy …

The combined surface temperatures on land and at sea averaged 14.5 C, some 0.76 C above the 20th century average. Average ocean surface temperature was the warmest on record for April and the global land surface temperature was the …

Cross-posted from Daniel Cressey on The Great Beyond The collapse of UN-led international efforts to combat climate change means a new approach that is ?politically attractive and relentlessly pragmatic? is required, according to a new report. The 14 authors of a new report on climate policy describe themselves as ?an eclectic group of academics, analysts and energy policy advocates?. They say the Kyoto …

In 2002, the world's governments agreed to significantly slow the rate of biodiversity loss by 2010. Time is almost up, and by most accounts they've failed. Now that climate change is emerging as one of biodiversity's greatest threats, scientists are proposing new ways to tackle the crisis. In the latest, and last, issue of Nature Reports Climate Change, Hannah Hoag reports …

Cross-posted from Quirin Schiermeier on The Great Beyond Since 1994, around 750 cubic kilometers of floating ice ? equivalent to the volume of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia ? have been melting each year around the Arctic Ocean and off Antarctica, an analysis of satellite observation has revealed. The massive loss of sea ice actually adds a wee bit to global sea level …

Olive Heffernan I?ve been attending the PISCES conference on Climate Change Effects on Fish and Fisheries in Sendia, Japan this week in an effort to reconnect with my fisheries research roots. Since leaving research seven years ago, I?ve covered little in the way of fisheries, partly because I?m now focused on climate change, a topic that the fisheries community is only recently …
