  • ‘Average’ hurricane season upped by NOAA

    April 12, 2021

    NOAA – Increased hurricane activity over the past three decades will see the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center (CPC) raise its meaning of the word ‘average’ when it comes to the Atlantic hurricane season. Using 1991-2020 as the new 30-year period of record, the updated averages for the Atlantic hurricane season […]

  • Prairies hit hard by drought

    April 9, 2021

    Canadian Drought Monitor – A new nationwide drought map released by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Canadian Drought Monitor (CDM) is showing just how dry conditions are in the Prairies, especially in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Areas in southern Manitoba and southern Saskatchewan have experienced at least six months of drought conditions, according to CDM’s drought assessment […]


  • Beef industry can cut emissions with land management, production efficiency

    April 6, 2021

    Colorado State University – A comprehensive assessment of 12 different strategies for reducing beef production emissions worldwide found that industry can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by as much as 50 per cent in certain regions, with the most potential in the United States and Brazil. The study, Reducing Climate Impacts of Beef Production: A […]

  • Climate change cut global ag growth by 21 per cent in past 60 years

    April 1, 2021

    Cornell University –  Global farming productivity since the 1960s is 21 per cent lower than it could have been without climate change, despite other important agricultural advances in the past 60 years, according to a new study led by Cornell University. This is the equivalent of losing about seven years of farm productivity increases over […]


  • Climate change probably increasing intensity in tropical storms

    March 30, 2021

    ScienceBrief News – Many tropical cyclone-prone regions of the world are expected to experience storm systems of greater intensity over the coming century, according to a review of research published on March 26 in ScienceBrief Review. Moreover, sea level rise will aggravate coastal flood risk from tropical cyclones and other phenomena, even if the tropical […]

  • Regional water scarcity can have global implications

    March 26, 2021

    Tufts University – Droughts may lead to localized water shortages, but the impact of dry conditions can also have both positive and negative ripple effects on the global economy, according to a new study led by Tufts University. “We’re finding that water scarcity dynamics are more complicated than traditionally acknowledged,” said Flannery Dolan, a graduate […]


  • UN marks World Water Day with annual report

    March 22, 2021

    UN-Water – On March 22, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), on behalf of UN-Water, released the UN World Water Development Report (WWDR) 2021.

  • Feds invest C$185 million towards climate-smart agriculture

    March 19, 2021

    Government of Canada – Farmers are on the front lines of worsening climate impacts and face increasing risk of wildfires and extreme weather events, such as floods and droughts. According to the federal government, the best way to build climate resiliency across Canadian agriculture’s diversity of realities and landscapes is by developing and deploying solutions […]


  • Melting glaciers could speed up carbon emissions into the atmosphere

    March 16, 2021

    University of Leeds – The loss of glaciers worldwide enhances the breakdown of complex carbon molecules in rivers, potentially contributing further to climate change. An international research team led by the University of Leeds has for the first time linked glacier-fed mountain rivers with higher rates of plant material decomposition, a major process in the […]

  • European summer droughts since 2015 unprecedented in past two millennia

    March 16, 2021

    University of Cambridge – Recent summer droughts in Europe are far more severe than anything in the past 2,100 years, according to a new study. An international team, led by the University of Cambridge, studied the chemical fingerprints in European oak trees to reconstruct summer climate over 2,110 years. They found that after a long-term […]
