The methane detectives: On the trail of a global warming mystery

Research co-authored by Stanford Earth's Adam Brandt suggests that more than half the volume of all methane emissions from natural gas come from just the largest 5 percent of leaks. Navigate to The methane detectives: On the trail of a global warming mystery

The simple yet elusive key to fighting the climate crisis: More trees

“The success of corporate zero-deforestation pledges largely depends on the presence of supportive public policies that create an enabling environment,” says Eric Lambin.

Is the Impossible Whopper really healthier than a meat patty?

"People do need to understand that the impact of meat-based agriculture is really large and, personally, I'm thrilled to see range of options to help address the issue," says Stanford's Chris Field. Navigate to Is the Impossible Whopper really healthier than a meat patty?

Global warming heats up the income gaps

We get the rising temperatures and higher sea levels, but economic inequality from global warming? Yes, say scientists. Noah Diffenbaugh discusses the research with radio host Geoffrey Riley.

Meatsplainer: How new plant-based burgers compare to beef

Stanford's Chris Field says people don’t have to give up meat entirely to make a difference, and that pork and chicken have much smaller environmental footprints than beef.

Carbon capture could keep global warming in check – here's how it works

Stanford Earth's Sally Benson says the biggest opportunity for carbon capture and storage will be dealing with hard to eliminate emissions.

Climate change worsens economic inequality, study says

Climate change has different effects on the economies of cold and warm countries. A new study by Stanford scientists finds it has already made poor warm countries substantially more poor.

This French theme park doesn't sugarcoat its environmental message

E-IPER director Nicole Ardoin says couching environmental messages in the context of a theme park could spur conversations and remain with people beyond the visit because of the memory of a shared experience.

The one number you need to know about climate change

Computing a precise social cost of carbon could help us decide how much to invest and which problems to tackle first. Research led by Marshall Burke on the dollar value of limiting warming to 1.5 °C is cited.

Climate change makes rich countries richer, poor countries poorer

It's been well-documented that low-income communities bear the brunt of many climate change-related horrors. Now research from Stanford shows which countries win and which lose out as a result of global warming.

Could machine learning be the key to earthquake prediction?

“What we are doing is different than prediction. But, yes, all of these things are indirectly related,” says Stanford Earth postdoc Mostafa Moustavi, who is using machine learning to detect small quakes.

Climate change worsened global inequality

"Researchers and policy makers have been saying for many years that the greatest, most acute impacts of global warming are falling on populations least responsible for creating that global warming," says Noah Diffenbaugh. "We have quantified the effect."
