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."

The rich get richer under climate change, 50 years of data shows

Global warming's effects reach beyond the natural world. New research shows climate change has slowed progress toward narrowing the economic gap between the world’s richest and poorest nations.

Climate change has slowed down progress on ending global inequality

Stanford Earth researchers have quantified the economic impact of climate change over half a century, revealing the extent to which global warming has made poor countries poorer and rich countries richer.

Global warming is worsening the global wealth gap

Global warming has already created winners and losers across the world, with poorer, tropical nations suffering the most even though they contributed far less to the problem, a study from Stanford Earth finds.

Inequalities of climate change: Rich nations get richer, poor get poorer

Climate change has already created a sobering patchwork of economic inequality across the globe, according to Stanford researchers Marshall Burke and Noah Diffenbaugh.

Climate change has already made poor countries poorer

Numerous studies have predicted that poor nations will suffer the greatest devastation from climate change. A new analysis by Noah Diffenbaugh and Marshall Burke finds it’s already been happening for decades.

Climate change has increased global economic inequality

A rising tide may lift all boats. But when it comes to economic prosperity, the same can't be said for rising temperatures. That's the conclusion of a new study by Noah Diffenbaugh and Marshall Burke.
