Green roofs -- roofs that are planted with vegetation -- may improve the indoor air quality of commercial buildings by cutting the amount of ozone coming into the buildings from the outside, accord

This publication marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate, which was first issued in 1994. The 2019 edition treating data for 2018 marks sustained international efforts dedicated to reporting on, analysing and understanding the year-to-year variations and long-term trends of a changing climate.

Fourteen major cities in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region had their air quality improved in 2018, thanks to intensified efforts in environmental control.

Some 385,000 people worldwide died prematurely in 2015 from air pollution caused by vehicle exhaust emissions finds this study published by International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) which singled out diesel engines as the main culprit. China, the EU, the United States, and India accounted for 70% of global transportation-attributable PM2.5 and ozone deaths but just under half of the global population.

Coarse particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter between 2.5 and 10μm (PM2.5–10) air pollution is a severe environmental problem in developing countries, but its challenges to public health were rarely evaluated. The researchers aimed to investigate the associations between day-to-day changes in PM2.5–10 and cause-specific mort

Yearly loss of ice from Antarctica has increased by an alarming rate of 280 per cent between 2001 and 2017, according to a study which showed that accelerated melting caused global sea levels to ri

The latest Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion reveals a healing ozone layer, global warming reduction potential, and options for more ambitious climate action. The quadrennial review from the Scientific Assessment Panel of the Montreal Protocol will be presented at the 30th Meeting of the Parties to this historic accord.

Early and ambitious action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) is essential to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. SLCPs include methane, hydrofluorocarbons, black carbon, and tropospheric ozone.

Europe baked in near-record temperatures on Monday but hopes were for some respite after weeks of non-stop sunshine as people come to terms with what may prove to be the new normal in climate chang
