We make scholarly research relevant and accessible to a wider audience by connecting it to news and offering Open Access to research available on JSTOR.

Stories about climate change have appeared frequently in JSTOR Daily the past year. We worried about brain-eating birds and whether melting ice sheets would flood the JSTOR offices in New York City. But there was good news too: livestock can help mitigate climate change and clams stave off the worst of climate change-driven superstorms.

Climate change on JSTOR Daily

Here are some of JSTOR Daily’s most thought-provoking stories on climate change--upheld by scholarship and research you can access freely on JSTOR:

Climate Change Turns Cute Birds into Brain-Eating Zombies

European great tits kill migratory pied flycatchers over nesting sites. The warming weather is to blame.


Should Manhattanites Worry about the New Manhattanish-Size Iceberg?

Probably. If all Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets melt, the sea level will rise over 200 feet.


Can Cows Mitigate Climate Change? Yes, They Can

Livestock emit greenhouse gases. They also can sequester carbon and boost biodiversity.


Can Re-Clamming Our Harbors Keep Superstorms at Bay?

Hurricanes like Sandy destroy coastlines. Clams and oysters help keep them together.>

He brought us the term “global warming,” furthering our understanding of the ways in which people affect the planet’s climate.
