SENSOR SNIFFS OUT METHANE IN DEEP-SEA VENTS AND COWS

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas that traps heat about 20 times more effectively than carbon dioxide. Understanding the sources of methane, and how...
Deep Sea fish

Fish living in deep waters on the continental slope around the UK play an important role carrying carbon from the surface to the seafloor. It...
Leatherback Turtle

Critically endangered leatherback turtles face serious threat from climate change in addition to existing egg poaching and fishing dangers. Scientists have discovered a clear link between climate and survival of the leatherback. Warming climate is killing eggs and hatchlings. Action is needed, both to mitigate this effect and, ultimately, to reverse it to avoid extinction. We need to change fishing practices that kill turtles at sea, intervene to cool the beach to save the developing eggs and find a way to stop global warming. Otherwise, the leatherback will be lost.

We knew it was bad, but it is even worse than we thought. World rushing heedlessly towards global marine extinctions.
