Drought Research Shows Value of Both Climate Mitigation, Adaptation

The American West will experience increased drought conditions in the future under both high and low greenhouse gas emissions scenarios, but the most severe drought conditions can still be avoided if future emissions are limited.

NASA at Your Table: Climate Change and Its Environmental Impacts on Crop Growth

The Earth is heating up. The effects of human-caused global climate change are becoming more and more apparent as we see more record-breaking heat waves, intense droughts, shifts in rainfall patterns and a rise in average temperatures. And these environmental changes touch every part of crop production.

Drought Makes its Home on the Range

Drought is a natural part of the climate cycle, but as Earth’s atmosphere continues to warm due to climate change, droughts are becoming more frequent, severe and pervasive. Ranchers throughout the U.S. are using data from NASA and others to care for their herds and the land during drought conditions.

Direct Observations Confirm that Humans are Throwing Earth's Energy Budget off Balance

Earth is on a budget – an energy budget. Our planet is constantly trying to balance the flow of energy in and out of Earth's system. But human activities are throwing that off balance, causing our planet to warm in response.

NASA Joins White House National Climate Task Force

NASA has joined the National Climate Task Force, which is outlined in an executive order issued by President Joe Biden.

Reduced Fires Lead to Some Air Quality Improvements in Africa

Changes in fire patterns have led to seasonal reductions in nitrogen dioxide pollution.

NASA Study Finds Reduced African Grassland Fires Contribute to Short-lived Air Quality Improvements

NASA researchers have found a small but unexpected decrease in air pollution over some parts of Africa despite growing use of fossil fuels in many countries due to development and economic growth.

NASA Announces New Role of Senior Climate Advisor

In an effort to ensure effective fulfillment of the Biden Administration's climate science objectives for NASA, the agency has established a new position of senior climate advisor and selected Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Science in New York, to serve in the role in an acting capacity.

2020 Tied for Warmest Year on Record, NASA Analysis Shows
