The new study adds to growing evidence that the terrestrial carbon sink is weaker than once thought.
If the ice sheet were to vanish altogether, it would lift global oceans by nearly seven metres.
They also found that strategically banning fishing in specific areas could increase global fish yields by eight million tonnes.
A higher number can spur more aggressive policies to tame global warming, a lower number may make action seem unaffordable.
Researchers said there were 63 percent fewer trees in hard-hit regions compared to areas untouched by fires.
More than 2,200 power firms across the country — which emit over 26,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year — could now trade their emission quotas.
Rising carbon pollution has been shown to reduce the levels of these essential micronutrients in many crop staples, including wheat, rice and legumes.
This is despite an unprecedented fall in greenhouse gas emissions in 2020 because of the pandemic.
Peatlands keep a lot of carbon out of Earth's atmosphere, but that could end with warming and development
Although they only occupy three percent of the global land area, peatlands contain about 25 percent of global soil carbon — twice as much as the world’s forests.
Natural drivers of global warming already set in motion by carbon pollution will take on their own momentum.
These findings have profound and troubling implications which include potentially driving more "intense, destructive hurricanes" as ocean surfaces warm.
Between 2000 and 2018, China's annual carbon emissions nearly tripled, and it now accounts for nearly a third of the world's total greenhouse gases linked to global warming.
Wind, solar energy produce 10 percent of global electricity in the first half of 2020, a new report finds
Thirty percent of fossil fuel emissions come from coal power plants, globally, so coal-fired power generation needs to collapse quickly to limit climate change.
USA increases drilling for oil and gas, contributes to most of the methane emissions globally finds two studies
In South Asia, South America and Africa, growing agricultural activities have caused methane levels to spike.
Comet Atlas was a long-period comet, one that enters the Solar System once in 5,476 years.
Coronavirus treatment: US scientists find a way to use charcoal to fight cytokine storm in COVID-19 patients
Certain nanozymes made from charcoal were highly effective antioxidants that help in breaking down the damage-causing reactive oxygen species (ROS).
Afforestation could result in loss of biologically valuable forests, be more harmful than beneficial says study
Afforestation is considered to be an efficient way to remove CO2 from the atmosphere but a study finds that the carbon-capture potential was maybe overrated.
Microsoft plans to create a 'Climate Innovation Fund,' to speed up the development of carbon removal technology.
Since forests are carbon sinks, cutting down a tree is equal to emitting greenhouse gases.
A previous study had shown that thawing permafrost on land releases large quantities of greenhouse gases.
