Phytoplankton may remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis, but they may also be spurring warming. Scientists have found that phytoplankton is potentially a key driver of Arctic warming under greenhouse warming.
Amazon rainforest losses may actually be worsening climate change. Scientists have found that as trees are cut down and removed, the carbon dioxide that's released could have a major impact on our environment.
Global warming may not be occurring quite as quickly as previously thought.
How is lightning created? That's a difficult question and now, scientists have used studies on exploding stars to help unlock the answer.
