How pure is your coffee? It may not just be coffee beans that are going into your morning cup. Scientists have found that there may be surprise ingredients acting as fillers, and that they may increase in the future as coffee shortages grow.
Scientists are learning a bit more about how the earliest animals on Earth developed and evolve. They've created new, three-dimensional reconstructions that could show why these early animals became extinct.
Scientists have discovered scours left behind by massive icebergs at a depth of an impressive 1,200 meters, revealing a bit more about the dynamics of the Ice Age and the extent of the Arctic ice sheet thousands of years ago.
Weather extremes are continuing to cause problems across the world. While human-caused global warming might explain a gradual increase in periods of severe heat, though, other events are not so easily explained. Now, scientists may have found an answer.
In March 2010, Antarctica experienced more of an icequake than usual due to the Chilean earthquake. The kicker is that this earthquake occurred 3,000 miles away.
Scientists have found that mountain yellow-legged frogs, a species once brought to the brink of extinction, are coping with the dry environment.
Scientists have created a sponge-like plastic that sops up carbon dioxide and could potentially be used to help cut CO2 emissions.
Scientists may have developed a new way to confine oil spills. They've created a tractor beam on water, which could mean a new way to manipulate currents in a way to help contain environmental pollution.
Ancient shells are revealing a bit more about the past history of El Niño and have shown that it was just as strong and possibly as frequent as the ones that we experience today.
The immediate aftermath of an oil spill can be a crucial time for responders. Yet how exactly should we respond?
A fundamental chemical pathway that can be found in all plants has now been traced back to two groups of ancient bacteria. The findings reveal a bit more about the evolution of these pathways and could lead to future advances in plant science.
We're in a bit of trouble when it comes to reducing the amount of carbon we're releasing. Scientists have found that carbon reduction efforts in the airline industry will be outweighed by growth in air-traffic, even if the strictest mitigation measures are implemented.
