Welcome to Environment and Energy at Physics World

For our loyal readers from environmentalresearchweb, we hope you’ll adapt to this relaunched and expanded site – we’ve done our best to mitigate the changes so that you feel at home in the new climate. You can still find all the usual research updates on the latest discoveries in environmental science, plus more in-depth features on key issues, links to our sister open-access journal Environmental Research Letters, and our popular energy blogger Dave Elliott, who now has his own page. We’ve added extra features that could bring positive feedback, including more video content and a dedicated collection on Sustainable Futures. Our journalism ecosystem is broad and our services diverse.

Welcome too if this topic is not your natural home, and the (admittedly lame) environmental wordplay in the preceding paragraph has passed you by. I promise this is the only place on the Environment and Energy pages with terrible puns and invite you to find out more about this fascinating field – perhaps our careers feature From physics to environmental science: a natural evolution? is a good place to start.
