Research co-authored by Stanford Earth's Eric Lambin conclusively shows what others have suspected: A precious fungus is disappearing, as a result of a double whammy of overharvesting and warming weather.
Stanford Earth's Katharine Mach explains the climate data gap, which allows scientists to say to say much more specifically how climate change will play out in Europe and North America compared to other places.
"As economic conditions worsen, that might also worsen mental health," Stanford Earth's Marshall Burke explains. There also might be "a plausible biological linkage between temperature, thermal regulation and how the brain regulates its own emotion."
Stanford's Katharine Mach is mentioned as one of 91 leading scientists from 40 countries who examined more than 6,000 scientific studies for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's latest report .
Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh describes his research showing that, relative to the eventual economic damage of not acting aggressively enough to protect the planet in the future, it would cost much less to make changes now.
