Extinction risk could decrease by more than 50% if at least 30% of land were to be conserved across the tropics, a new study reveals.

Scientists have secured funding to investigate ways the UK steel industry can be decarbonised within 30 years.

UK scientists are taking to the skies as part of a major international research campaign to better understand the behaviour of clouds and their role in climate change.
