Harvard Researchers Discover Global Warming Spawned the Age of Reptiles

By Harvard University, Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology August 20, 2022 Artistic reconstruction of the reptile adaptive radiation in a terrestrial ecosystem during the warmest period in Earth’s history. Image depicts a massive, big-headed, carnivorous erythrosuchid (close relative to crocodiles and dinosaurs) and a tiny gliding reptile at about 240 million years ago. The …

Drop in air pollution has INCREASED global warming, study reveals

Drop in air pollution has INCREASED global warming, study reveals

The great paradox: Drop in air pollution has INCREASED global warming because clean air does not contain aerosol particles that reflect sunlight and cool the Earth Current pollution rates are 30 percent lower than in 2000  However, this has led to an increase in warming from carbon emissions  Scientists found there is less haze in …
