Description Despite their incredible reputation for being exquisitely rare and valuable, diamonds are more common than you might think. Other planets, like Uranus, are probably chock full of them. They’re floating around on some space rocks even right now. As it turns out, us Earthlings might be sitting on top of a motherlode of diamonds — one quadrillion tons, actually. Over 100 miles under the Earth’s surface is a section of geology known as cratonic roots. They sit beneath what geologists call a craton, the oldest, most stable section of rock within a continent. Some reach deep into the interior of the Earth—capable of stretching down as much as 200 miles deep, through the outer crust and into the planet’s mantle —hence the “roots” label. “Cratons are intimately associated with the some of the most significant events in Earth history, such as the initiation of plate tectonics and the formation of the continents,” says Joshua Garber, a postdoc at Penn State University and the lead author of the new study. “They have been stable since the Archean Eon, at least 2.5 billion years ago, so they've had plenty of time for lots of happen to them…they've been chemically stewing in that mantle for a long time.” The findings fold into a larger effort to understand the history and processes in the superficial and deep mantle regions of the earth.

Description An analysis of decades of satellite data has revealed how humans are changing seasonal cycles in the lower atmosphere. The accumulation of greenhouse gases produced by burning fossil fuels has increased air temperatures in summer and caused larger annual temperature swings in the northern hemisphere. Previous research has documented how global warming is altering seasons on the ground — causing winter snowpacks to melt earlier, shifting animal migrations and lengthening fire seasons. The latest study, which draws on satellite temperature records from 1979 to 2016, is the first to pinpoint seasonal changes in the atmosphere. The odds that natural climate variability can account for the magnitude of the temperature changes over the course of the satellite record are roughly five in a million, researchers report on 19 July in Science.

Description As international whaling ramped up around the turn of the 20th century so did efforts by governments, activists, and the public to stop the practice. By 2016, more than half of the species' 14 population segments were no longer considered endangered. When the Pacific Whale Foundation (PWF) was founded in 1980, its researchers would drive up and down the coast of Hawaii waiting to see a whale. At that time, only a few hundred humpback whales made it to the islands per year. Now, more than 10,000 do. The recovery of the Hawaiian coast population is indicative of the species’ worldwide rebound from the brink of extinction, including a recently reported resurgence of humpback whales near Antarctica. “They’re just these gentle giants, and you can really connect with them,” says Jens Currie, a PWF senior research analyst in Wailuku, Hawaii. “I do think they are the poster child for conservation success.”

Description The air in US national parks contains just as much ozone pollution as the air in many of the country’s largest cities, according to a study1 published on 18 July in Science Advances. The findings raise important health questions for people who visit the parks, says Ivan Rudik, an environmental economist at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and a study co-author. That’s because exposure to ozone pollution can irritate the nose and throat, lead to chest pain or exacerbate conditions such as asthma2. Ozone starts to form when nitrogen oxide gases — often emitted by cars — or particulates from coal-fired power plants combine with organic compounds given off by vegetation such as trees, Rudik explains. Sunlight reacts with this mixture to then produce ozone. Rudik and his colleagues compared ozone levels in 33 national parks and in 20 of the largest US cities between 1990 and 2014. After controlling for weather and the season, the team found that pollution levels in the parks and cities were similar. In fact, before 2000, summer ozone levels in the parks increased before they started to drop. And even then, the decrease was modest when compared to the cities. The researchers aren't sure what caused this pattern.

Description Two huge multilateral issues — free trade and climate change — top policymakers’ agendas in 2018. This offers a chance to couple them. More and more countries are shielding domestic producers from foreign competition — a process known as protectionism. Since January, US President Donald Trump has slapped tariffs of up to 50% on many imports, including washing machines, solar cells, soya beans, steel and aluminium. Hopes that allied countries would be exempt were dashed after a tumultuous G7 meeting in June. Economies affected have begun to respond in kind. China hit back with levies on US$34 billion worth of US goods. The European Union increased tariffs on jeans, motorbikes and bourbon imported from the United States. And Trump has since threatened to add tariffs on another $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. A trade war is unfolding.
