How the solar system was created more than 4 billion years ago.
Why do we see earthquakes and volcanos? The surface of the Earth is important to life as we know it, but it is not as solid as we might think.
The Earth has experienced warm and cold periods since the beginning of times. But why do we have these periods and when do they come?
To many of us “the greenhouse effect” may sound like a bad thing. But one of the main reasons we can live on this planet is the greenhouse effect. Learn why here.
The global temperature is on rise, but did you know that it is a very recent development? Learn how global temperatures started to escalate in the 1970s.
Everybody talks about CO2, but did you know that the atmosphere consists of several greenhouse gasses and that some of the most potent ones come from cows?
The global temperature is at an all-time high and 2020 is turning out to be another record-setting year. But how bad is it really? Have a look here.
There are important natural variations in the climate system, and we can expect more of them with a warmer climate. One of those is El Niño, which is explained here.
There are many consequences from a changing climate. Among those are heavier and more frequent precipitation, which has consequences for agriculture and our food system.
We all know that higher temperatures leads to more snow and ice melting. But how will this impact life around the poles and what is the potential bounce-back effect on the global weather systems?
Life in the oceans give food to millions of people. We need healthy oceans, but that is presently not the case. Learn why here.
The tropics are a valuable part of the Earth. Here, life is highly dependent on a stable climate.
The physical impacts of climate change are not limited to small island states in exotic places. The European mainland is already experiencing changes that require countries to adapt.
Climate change is a global problem which requires a global solution. Learn more about the institutions we have the in place, and why UN is the most important player.
Hope for the future increased in 2015, when the COP 21 was negotiated in Paris. It was a good start, but we now know that more is needed. Learn more here.
Political and technological developments are on the rise, but we all have to make changes in our life to help stabilize human impacts on climate over the coming decades. If we succeed, we can have a bright future for coming generations.
