Stanford geophysicist Jenny Suckale comments on new research suggesting oil extraction may have caused nearly all of the moderate earthquakes that struck the Los Angeles Basin in the first half of the 20th century.
Many economists expect carbon emissions to drop in the next few decades. But maybe they won’t. Are we on the worst-case scenario for climate change? “We’re actually a lot closer than we should be," says Stanford Earth's Rob Jackson.
For the first time in four years U.S. carbon emissions increased, mostly because a booming economy used more energy resources, even with a shift toward renewable energy and natural gas. Stanford Earth's Rob Jackson discusses whether a booming economy and rising emissions can decouple.
“We have lost momentum. There’s no question,” Rob Jackson, a Stanford University professor who studies emissions trends, said of both U.S. and global efforts to steer the world toward a more sustainable future.
