Deforestation is likely to warm the climate even more than originally thought, scientists warn. An international team of scientists, led by the University of Leeds, studied the way that reactive gases emitted by trees and vegetation affect the climate. Their research, published today in Nature Communications, found these reactive gases cool our climate, meaning deforestation…
An international team of scientists, led by the University of Leeds, has quantified the relationship between natural sources of particles in the atmosphere and climate change. Their study, published today in Nature Geoscience, shows that the cooling effect of natural atmospheric particles is greater during warmer years and could therefore slightly reduce the amount that…
