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.

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.

While Hurricane Florence approached the North Carolina coast on Wednesday, California Governor Jerry Brown convened the global summit on fighting climate change in San Francisco.

New study predicts the next five years will get even hotter

This summer's worldwide heatwave makes 2018 a particularly hot year. But according to a new study - at the global level, 2018-2022 may be an even hotter period than expected based on current global warming.

Op-Ed: Hothouse Earth: It’s looking worse than ever

Sydney - After decades of senile, incompetent idiocy and procrastination about warming, we’re now talking about Hothouse Earth. Heat waves are killing people in large numbers. The question is now what happens next.

Op-Ed: The world is seeing global warming 'up close and personal'

Catastrophic heat, wildfires, crop failures and deaths are just a very few of the events going on right now around the world - and climate scientists are warning if we do nothing - it is only going to get worse. Climate Change is no longer a debate.

Essential Science: Ocean acidification poses new challenges

New concerns have been expressed about the extent of ocean acidification. A new paper finds ocean acidification is becoming a greater challenge for science, governments, and communities to tackle.

Rising seas to cost the world $14 trillion annually by 2100

In 80 years the rising seas’ cost could be $14 trillion a year globally, with the oceans possibly nearing two meters (6.5 feet) above their present levels, according to new research.

Study shows global warming will bring profound changes to planet

Future global warming may eventually be twice as warm as projected by climate models and sea levels may rise six meters or more even if the world meets the 2°C target, according to an international team of researchers from 17 countries.

Extreme heat sets records across the Northern Hemisphere

The northern hemisphere has been hit by extreme heat over the past two weeks, with record-breaking temperatures recorded in the US, Canada, Europe and the Middle East.

New method reduces the cost of scrubbing CO2 from the atmosphere

A Harvard professor announced on June 7, 2018, that his company, Carbon Engineering, has found a method to cheaply and directly pull carbon-dioxide pollution out of the atmosphere and turn it into fuel.

World's largest dead zone in Gulf of Oman is the size of Florida

Researchers studying a massive "dead zone" in the Arabian Sea now reveal the zone of oxygen-starved waters has now expanded far more than expected, raising serious concerns about the future of local fisheries and ecosystems

Sahara Desert has grown over 10 percent in last century

The Sahara Desert—which takes up about 3.6 million square miles of northern Africa—is growing ever larger, signaling daunting news for people living in the Sahel border region who stand to lose valuable arable land to the expanding desert.

Global warming will trigger steep decline in ocean fisheries

The effects of climate change on the world's oceans will trigger a dramatic decline in global fisheries output if the current warming trend is left unchecked, a new study has suggested.

Ticks have crept into Canada, sowing illness and confusion

`Reported cases of tick-borne Lyme Disease in Canada have increased more than six-fold between 2009 and 2016, yet even today, it is still a struggle for a patient to get diagnosed and treated.

Scientists alarmed by unprecedented warming in Arctic

An unprecedented and alarming heatwave in the sunless winter Arctic is causing blizzards in Europe and forcing scientists to reconsider even their most pessimistic forecasts of climate change.

Weather will remain predictable despite climate change

Although the temperature of the Earth is becoming warmer and climate change is causing adverse effects worldwide, the act of forecasting the weather will remain consistent over the next thirty years, according to new research.

Robots en route to Antarctica to study underside of ice shelves

It has become increasingly common to see cliff-sized chunks of glacial ice falling into the Southern Ocean, suggestive of a warming climate. But scientists don't know what's going on beneath Antarctica's ice sheets., so they are preparing to find out.

Wind farms could take a serious hit from global warming

New climate modeling data predicts that climate changes due to global warming will weaken winds that blow across much of the Northern hemisphere, possibly leading to big drops in clean wind energy.

U.S. climate scientists get $70 million in grants from France

Paris - Over 50 world leaders, bankers, energy magnates and other well-known figures are meeting today for the "One Planet Summit" in Paris. On Monday, French president Emmanuel Macron awarded $70 million in grants to U.S. climate scientists.

Science confirms Hurricane Harvey made worse by climate change

When Hurricane Harvey dumped 60 inches of rain in Houston, Texas in August, many people described the event as "biblical." And in a new study of this year's hurricane season, scientists conclude we need to be prepared for more of these extreme events.

Global rise of just 3C could leave many cities below sea level

A recent analysis of data from the Climate Central group of scientists by the Guardian showed that if the world warms by just 3 degrees Celsius (5.4 F) as the UN predicts is happening, many cities around the world will be inundated by rising waters.

As interest in Earth's changing climate heats up, a tiny dark particle is stepping into the limelight: black carbon. Commonly known as soot, black carbon enters the air when fossil fuels and biofuels, such as coal, wood, and diesel are burned. Black carbon is found worldwide, but its presence and impact are particularly strong in Asia.
