How can migration, workforce participation, and education balance the cost of aging in Europe?
International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis

New IIASA research shows that higher levels of education and increasing workforce participation in both migrant and local populations are needed to compensate for the negative economic impacts of aging populations in EU countries.

How much does black carbon contribute to climate warming?
Michigan Technological University

Black carbon particles — more commonly known as soot — absorb heat in the atmosphere. For years, scientists have known that these particles are having an effect on Earth’s warming climate, but measuring their exact effect has proved elusive.

Scientists Discover New Clue Behind Age-Related Diseases and Food Spoilage
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Berkeley Lab scientists have made a surprising discovery that could help explain our risk for developing chronic diseases or cancers as we get older, and how our food decomposes over time.

Hot climates to see more variability in tree leafing as temperatures rise
Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The researchers examined satellite imagery, air temperature data and phenology (plant life cycle) models for 85 large cities and their surrounding rural areas from 2001 through 2014 to better understand changes in tree leaf emergence, also called budburst, on a broad scale across the United States. The study can help scientists improve their modeling of the potential impacts of future warming.

Heat trapped in urban areas tricks trees into thinking spring has arrived earlier
Iowa State University

Satellite data of 85 U.S. cities shows plants begin turning green earlier in the spring in urban areas than in surrounding rural areas. It’s a symptom of the way cities trap heat, a phenomenon known as the “heat-island effect,” according to a recently published study.

Protein Could Offer Therapeutic Target for Breast Cancer Metastasis
University of Kentucky

A new study by University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center researchers suggests that targeting a protein known as heat shock protein 47 could be key for suppressing breast cancer metastasis.
