Ice hockey feels the heat in Canada

The future of Canadian outdoor ice hockey – a sport synonymous with the country’s culture – is being threatened by anthropogenic climate change, new research suggests. As warmer winter temperatures restrict ice from freezing over, researchers believe the ice hockey stars of the future will have limited access to the frozen lakes and backyard rinks […]

Low-carbon technologies ‘no quick-fix’, say researchers

A drastic switch to low carbon-emitting technologies, such as wind and hydroelectric power, may not yield a reduction in global warming until the latter part of this century, research published today suggests. Furthermore, it states that technologies that offer only modest reductions in greenhouse gases, such as the use of natural gas and perhaps carbon […]

Glaciers in south-west China feel the brunt of climate change

Significant increases in annual temperatures are having a devastating affect on glaciers in the mountainous regions of south-western China, potentially affecting natural habitats, tourism and wider economic development. In a study published today in IOP Publishing’s Environmental Research Letters, scientists examined data from 111 weather stations across south-western China and have shown that temperature patterns […]

£130m hunt for Einstein’s gravitational waves The hunt for one of the most elusive phenomena in the Universe, predicted by Albert Einstein almost a century ago yet never directly detected, is to step up next month when scientists start to upgrade an instrument that should find gravitational waves for the first time. Times Call to […]
