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.

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.

Canada is warming at twice the rate as the rest of the world

Ottawa - The effects of a warming planet are going to be felt all across Canada. And, if we stick to a "business-as-usual" scenario — it's going to happen a lot sooner than scientists initially thought.

Baked Alaska? Not hardly, but Alaska is having a heatwave

Anchorage - Alaska residents accustomed to subzero temperatures are experiencing a heat wave of sorts that is shattering records, with the thermometer jumping to more than 30 degrees Fahrenheit (16.7 Celsius) above normal in some regions.

2018 saw global warming emissions reach a record level

The International Energy Agency reported on Tuesday March 26 that global warming emissions reached a record level last year in spite of efforts in the US, Europe, and China to reduce emissions through cleaner power and sales of more electric vehicles

The Svalbard 'Doomsday Vault' is succumbing to global warming

Just over a decade after it first opened, the world's "doomsday vault" of seeds is imperiled by global warming as the polar region where it's located warms faster than any other area on the planet.

The face of global warming — 'Unprecedented' flooding in Iran

Tehran - At least 37 people have been killed in southern Iran as the result of "unprecedented" flooding that occurred on Monday after heavy rains swept through the Middle East, according to Radio Farda. More rain is expected.

Denial of climate change is 'evil,' says head of Elders group

Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and former UN special envoy for climate change says that denial of climate change is not just ignorant, but a “malign and evil," as it denies human rights to the most vulnerable.

Colder water is now slowing Greenland's fastest-melting glacier

The fastest-shrinking glacier in Greenland has made an unexpected turn. Although it's been melting for 20 years, the Jakobshavn Glacier in West Greenland - famous for producing the iceberg that sank the Titanic - has now started growing again.

It's not supposed to rain on Greenland's ice sheet in winter

Rainy weather is becoming increasingly common over parts of the Greenland ice sheet, triggering sudden melting events that are eating at the ice and priming the surface for more widespread future melting, according to a new study.

Climatic Change or Global Warming? - It's not an either/or answer

Whether referred to as "global warming" or "climate change," the consequences of the wide-scale changes currently being observed in Earth's climate system could be considerable. But which term should we be using?

Evidence for man-made global warming hits 'gold standard'

Evidence that humans cause global warming has hit the "gold standard" level of confidence, a U.S.-led team of scientists reportedly wrote in a journal article published Monday.

In Canada's Arctic, a landscape unseen in over 40,000 years

Glacial retreat in the Canadian Arctic has uncovered landscapes that haven’t been ice-free in more than 40,000 years and the region may be experiencing its warmest century in 115,000 years, new University of Colorado Boulder research finds.

Greenland's ice is melting faster than scientists thought

Greenland's ice is melting faster than scientists previously thought - and this will likely lead to faster sea level rise -thanks to the continued, accelerating warming of the Earth's atmosphere, a new study has found.

Our oceans have never been hotter than they were in 2018

A number of recent studies have been published highlighting just how significant global ocean warming has become. The vast majority of global warming heat ends up deposited in the world’s oceans, and ocean heat content change can be measured.

Organic food may be worse for the climate

It may come as a surprise, given the avoidance of chemical fertilizers, but a new report suggests that organic food has a greater environmental impact compared with conventionally farmed food.

The death spiral for coal-fired power plants has gone global

More than 40 percent of the world’s coal plants are operating at a loss due to high fuel costs and that proportion could rise to nearly 75 percent by 2040, a report by London-based environmental think-tank Carbon Tracker showed on Friday.

Amazon rainforest deforestation 'worst in 10 years', says Brazil

Brazil has released its worst annual deforestation figures in a decade amid fears that the situation might worsen when the avowedly anti-environmentalist president-elect Jair Bolsonaro takes power.

New report shows damaging climate change impact on U.S.

A U.S. government report assesses how climate change is wreaking havoc across the US. In terms of the future, this signals further damaging wildfires, more storms of intense rain, and more coastal flooding at high tides.

Earth's oceans have absorbed 60 percent more heat

A new study has found that the world's oceans have absorbed 60 percent more heat than any previously research has shown. This means the Earth is far more sensitive to fossil-fuel emissions than earlier research suggests.

Understanding the Arctic's 'ice-ocean governor'

Long-term melting of sea ice in the Arctic may lead to the release of huge volumes of cold, fresh water into the North Atlantic, impacting on global climate.

More drought and heat for barley crops means less beer worldwide

There is nothing quite like the taste of an ice-cold beer on a scorching hot day - but global warming doesn't pick and choose what it will impact in a negative way. A warming planet will result in global barley shortages and a shortage of beer.

Op-Ed: UN report on climate change issues a 'life or death' warning

Preventing a one-degree rise in heat over the next 12 years could make a life-or-death difference to multitudes of people around the world, according to a UN report on Sunday. But the report provides little hope the world will rise to the challenge.

Humans need to get back on track to avoid warming past 1.5C

The author of a key UN climate report coming out on October 8 says limiting temperature rise would require enormous, immediate transformation in human activity.

NASA to study earth ice loss with lasers

NASA is planning to assess the impact of global warming on the polar caps by assessing the rate of ice loss from space. The process for doing so will be through laser scanning.

The extent of Arctic sea ice on Aug. 26, 2012, the day the sea ice dipped to its previous smallest extent before the release of the data for September 2012.The line on the image shows the average minimum extent from the period covering 1979-2010, as measured by satellites. Every summer the Arctic ice cap melts down to what scientists call its “minimum” before colder weather builds the ice cover back up.

"An ice sheet covers almost all of Greenland—about 1.7 million square kilometers (650,000 square miles). It holds so much ice that if it were to melt away entirely, global sea level would rise 7 meters (23 feet)," as NASA writes.
