Climate Change Research in the News

Five Reasons Why Climate Action Needs Women 💁‍♀️

Climate change slowing down, not speeding up, movement of large Arctic rivers: study

Scientists have long believed that rapid warming in the Arctic would cause river channels to move faster, but a new study has found the opposite may be true for large, winding rivers in the region.

Denmark keeps on dithering over climate adaptation plans

Despite its reputation as a nation at the forefront of green technologies like wind power, Denmark has been slow to focus on climate adaptation.
