Landscape-changing wildfires have become a concern worldwide as global warming creates fires that burn more ferociously and more frequently. Scientists are now asking just how much more devastation our forests and woodlands can take, and still survive?

UN Report: World getting closer to passing temperature limit

The world is getting closer to passing a temperature limit set by global leaders at the Paris Climate Accord in 2015, and may exceed it in the next decade or so, according to a new United Nations "United in Science 2020 Report."

Water in glacial lakes has increased 50 percent since 1990

As the planet warms, glacial lakes have grown rapidly around the world since the 1990s, according to satellite images that reveal the impact of increased meltwater draining off retreating glaciers.

Warming Greenland ice sheet passes point of no return

Nearly 40 years of satellite data from Greenland shows that glaciers on the island have shrunk so much that even if global warming were to stop today, the ice sheet would continue shrinking.

Canada's last fully intact ice shelf has collapsed due to warming

The Milne Ice Shelf is at the fringe of Ellesmere Island in the northern Canadian territory of Nunavut. It was the last fully intact ice shelf in Canada, until Sunday - when it collapsed, losing 40 percent of its area.

Essential Science: Severe warming recorded at the South Pole

New climatology evidence presents some concerning news about the South Pole. Researchers have discovered that the South Pole is warming at a rate three times above the global average. This has occurred across the past 30 years.

New insights into atmospheric pollution sound warning bells

The global heating effect is leading to higher than predicted levels of methane, an insight that relates to better understanding aquatic microbial life. In other areas, the levels of harmful particles remain high, especially in the Sahara.

Arctic town reaches 100°F — The highest temperature ever recorded

Temperatures in the small Siberian town of Verkhoyansk hit 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit on Saturday, according to public-facing weather data. It's a record-high temperature in one of the fastest-warming places in the world.

Op-Ed: Earth is on the threshold of becoming too hot for humans

Last month was the hottest May on record worldwide, according to the Copernicus Climate Change Service. Globally, May was 0.63 degrees Celsius warmer than the average of May between 1981 and 2010. Face it, folks - The Earth has reached its heat threshold.

A new study says Louisiana’s coastal marshlands cannot be saved

The marshlands on the coast of Louisiana have survived over thousands of years, even though the Mississippi Delta experiences some of the highest rates of coastal wetland loss in the world. Today, these marshlands have reached a "tipping point."

Global warming pushing US Southwest drought into a megadrought

A severe drought that has engulfed the American Southwest since the year 2000 is likely to soon be the most severe drought since the 800s, according to a new study.

March 2020 temperatures were sixth-warmest in Europe since 1979

Europe’s hottest winter on record ever gave way to a milder March, with below-average temperatures in some of the western parts of the continent, while global temperatures were much above average.

New study shows ocean currents are shifting toward the poles

Over the past 40 years, the world's eight major ocean gyres (wind-driven current systems) have steadily shifted toward the poles, according to new research published in the American Geophysical Union (AGU) journal.

Blood-red ice in Antarctica an ominous sign of climate change

A few weeks ago, scientists at Ukraine's Vernadsky Research Base in Antarctica awoke to find their usually pristine white surroundings drenched in a shocking blood-red.

Glaciers are disappearing faster than a few years ago

The rate of melting of Greenland’s glaciers is happening at a far faster rate than climate scientists previously realized. This is based on new data which indicates that the rate of melting is happening below water as well as above.

Outbreak of locusts in east Africa nears biblical proportions

The United Nations secretary-general has appealed for “speedy and generous” financial assistance to curb an outbreak of locusts in the eastern African desert, which may be nearing biblical proportions.

Overpopulation and global warming — Is there a connection?

Is overpopulation having a negative effect on the environment and economic stability? This is a question that in one form or another has been asked for years. There are efforts being taken to ensure human sustainability, but solutions are hard to come by.

Global warming puts Mont Blanc Glacier at risk of collapse

Courmayeur - Italian authorities have closed off roads and evacuated homes after experts warned that a portion of a Mont Blanc glacier is at risk of collapse.

Arctic ice declining faster than predicted by most climate models

Arctic sea-ice is decreasing more quickly than previous models suggested, and this is happening in conjunction with a rise in global surface warming, according to new research. This is because Arctic warming is occurring faster than the global average.

New ocean-centric approach for detecting climate change

Scientists have developed a roadmap for detecting changes in ocean as the result of climate change. Already climate change is impacting on sea temperature rises; however other effects are likely to occur this century.

Op-Ed: Siberian melt double global warming rate, worse to come

Sydney - After all these years of drivel, millions of square miles of Siberia are turning into a bog. Warming is at twice the 2C “meltdown” rate at an average of 4C. Winter snow is adding water to the region with spring melts.

Northwest U.S. faces increased wildfire risk from global warming

The fire season typically doesn't become a big threat until late summer and into fall for the U.S. Northwest, a region famous for its rainfall. However, the Pacific Northwest faces an increased risk of significant wildfires due to global warming.

The growing list of countries with a net-zero carbon goal

The 2015 Paris Agreement set a global goal to reach net-zero emissions in the second half of the century. While a number of strategies have been suggested, the one simple answer many countries have agreed upon is setting a net-zero emissions target.

Key technologies identified to boost food production by 2050

Findings produced by the World Bank and United Nations to address climate change and excessive population growth center on the application of new technologies. One of the most important applications are measures to prevent agricultural emissions rising.

Digital tool for assessing climate change impact when you travel

People are becoming more aware of the environmental impact of travel. However, assessing the impact is not straightforward - is flying really so much worse than driving a car? To assist consumers, Chalmers University has developed a new platform.

Louisiana's new climate plan addresses 'existential crisis'

Baton Rouge - On Wednesday, Louisiana released a sweeping plan called LA SAFE, detailing climate adaptation strategies and underscoring the problem of coastal land loss. The plan is a detailed blueprint for coping with global warming.

White House memo threatens EPA climate finding

Hard-line foes of climate action on Monday once again asked the Trump Administration to reverse the landmark Obama-era finding that greenhouse gases are a danger to human health and the environment.

CO2 levels reach 415 ppm for first time in human history

"For the first time in human history, our planet's atmosphere has more than 415ppm CO2," meteorologist Eric Holthaus tweeted on May 12, 2019. Remember this day - because humanity has now entered into uncharted territory.

Q&A: How Mozambique is preparing for the malaria threat Special

As the floodwaters recede after Cyclone Idai, Doctors Without Borders' response to the natural disaster is preparing for the next health threat in Mozambique: malaria. To gain an insight of what is happening on the ground, we spoke with a malaria expert.

Climate change is fueling the US-Mexico border crisis

Severe weather and wildfires are dramatic events connected to global warming but immigration will soon rise to the top of the list of trends that world leaders will be forced to address by finding more sustainable solutions.
