Remains from the most powerful volcanic eruptions were branded by the sun before they ended up buried under the polar ice. This discovery enables scientists to find out when the volcanoes controlled the climate.
What happens when animals in harsh environments are exposed to extreme weather? Scientists found that extreme icing caused widespread die-offs in one arctic animal community. Climate change may cause more such extremes.
A majority of Norwegians would accept increased climate taxes – if the taxes are understood as targeting specific environmental purposes. Earmarking of the revenues could help to gain public acceptance for such taxes.
