Tornadoes on the East Coast may be a sign of things to come

Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh explains why tornadoes are the kind of extreme event where scientists are least able to attribute the odds or characteristics of individual events to an influence of global warming.

Geoengineering won't save our crops

Using two volcanic eruptions as proxies for a geoengineering program, researchers including Stanford Earth's Marshall Burke found that using aerosols to cool the planet likely wouldn’t help crops.

A plan to shoot tiny droplets into the sky wouldn't help crops

A new study co-authored by Marshall Burke suggests any boost in crop yield due to lower temperatures from geoengineering would be largely counteracted by dimmer sunlight.
