Human-induced climate change began earlier than previously though

| 08/25/2016 Continents and oceans in the northern hemisphere began to warm with industrial-era fossil fuel emissions nearly 200 years ago, pushing back the origins of human induced climate change to the mid-19th century.

Climate change alters the rules of sperm competition in the sea Researchers from the University of Exeter have shown that increasing ocean acidification, brought about by human made carbon emissions, reduces sperm performance in a species of sea urchin, slowing down sperm in future ocean conditions. Interestingly, they found that different males were affected to different extents and that this could change the outcome when … Continue reading Climate change alters the rules of sperm competition in the sea
