Global warming News

Over two-thirds of Mount Everest's glaciers could be gone by 2100

Kathmandu - If greenhouse-gas emissions continue to rise, glaciers in the Everest region of the Himalayas could experience dramatic changes in the decades to come.

Op-Ed: World leaders ignore climate change as hundreds die

Denver - In India hundreds are dying from extreme heat. Rain, floods and tornados are lashing Midwestern states in the U.S. In Colorado, the menace is less dramatic: overgrown lawns and grumbling about Seattle-like days in Denver.

Link between climate change and species extinction

A loss of the world's species is expected to increase dramatically climatologists warn. This is tied to a build-up of greenhouse gases. A new study draws on computer models and argues that climate change will result in disappearing animals.

Global warming will cut wheat yields in U.S. say researchers

Wheat is a staple in most households, literally the “bread of life” in every country that grows wheat. Globally, wheat provides 20 percent of daily protein and calories. By 2050, we are going to need a lot more wheat to feed a growing world.

Why Arctic warming might be accelerating even faster

A new study, taking a different approach to understanding global warming, indicates that the microscopic creatures found within the Arctic Ocean can signal whether climate change is occurring.

Moose populations on the decline, global warming linked

Scientists assert that global warming is causing a mass die-off of moose, which are acclimated to colder climates. Rising temperatures are leading to a variety of health problems, including the increased spread of parasites and diseases.

Global carbon dioxide levels hit new record

Global carbon dioxide concentrations have hit a new monthly record, reaching 400 parts per million, according to the latest data on atmospheric pollution.

Nation's biggest methane hot spot in Four Corners

Durango - The Four Corners region is a mecca for mysteries, including the disappeared cliff-dwelling Anasazis, reported UFOs and the Devil’s Highway, route 666.

Catholic Church and Pope Francis set to take on climate change

The Catholic Church is looking to convert the hearts and minds of those who deny climate change, seeking to convince them that the phenomenon is real and a grave threat.

Audi's 'blue crude' could be the sustainable fuel of the future

Researchers at Audi have made a potential clean energy breakthrough, engineering a process to convert water and carbon dioxide into diesel fuel. The process is carbon neutral, and early indicators suggest that it will be economically viable.

Cut all fossil fuel subsidies now, says banking head

Jim Yong Kim, head of the World Bank, has called for a five-point plan to deliver low-carbon growth. The plan includes removing incentives to exploit oil, gas and coal.

Global Warming: Arctic permafrost releasing more carbon, methane

A new study shows thawing permafrost in the Arctic, thawing due to global warming, is releasing greenhouse gases in the form of carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere. The only good news is that the process is a gradual one.

Adani's coal mine could be trashed if a little bird triumphs

Plans for the largest coal mine in Australia are being challenged in court this week, pitting India's Adani Group against one of Australia's many endangered species, the four-inch southern Black-throated Finch.

Heat tolerant beans could help alleviate poverty

A loss of crops and protein as a result of social, economic and climatic changes poses a new challenge for world hunger. A research group are addressing this with new plant lines to provide beans.

Lowest amount of ice ever recorded in Arctic threatens animals

Greenhouse gas emissions leading to global warming is the reason for the smallest amount of ice covering Arctic waters ever recorded. In other words the amount of ice floating in Arctic water has never been lower and it leads to great concern.

Global warming blamed for hundreds of sea lion deaths

More than 1,500 sea lion pups have washed ashore along California's coasts over the past two months, with many of them on the brink of death, and the rest starving and emaciated. The photos are circulating online among animal enthusiasts and activists.

Ancient Atlantic algae provides part of climate change jig-saw

Aarhus - Analysis of ancient sea sediments by researchers based in Denmark demonstrates that the Sun’s impact on Earth’s climate isn’t constant over time but affects climate more when the Earth is cooler.

Antarctica's ice melt could redraw map of world's coastlines

NASA satellite studies show that in the past decade Antarctic ice melt has been adding about 118 billion metric tons per year to the oceans. This has raised concerns about a drastic reshaping of the world's major coastlines with heavy human population.

New connection between disease and climate change

Lincoln - Infectious diseases occurring in unexpected locations, sometimes carried by new hosts, are seen by some scientists as products of climate change. Here humans, crops, wildlife and livestock come into contact with new pathogens.

Doomsday Clock moved up and now sits at 3 minutes before midnight

The metaphorical Doomsday Clock, created by and kept up by The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, has been moved. It is now the closest it's been to midnight in three decades, moving up Thursday to 3 minutes to midnight.

Mitt Romney believes in global warming, says humans 'contribute'

The man who took the Republican banner into the last U.S. Presidential election told a conference last week that he believes in global warming. He even suggested humans played a role.

Oceans are warming so rapidly they are breaking scientific charts

Earlier this month the NOAA and NASA announced that 2014 was the hottest year ever recorded, shattering the previous records in 2005 and 2010. Now comes the news that global warming is heating the world's oceans at an unprecedented pace.

You and whose army? Beavers are changing the world

Saskatoon - Major conservation efforts have helped save beavers from extinction. Interestingly, this action has had consequences: an increase in the generation of methane gas.

Op-Ed: Climate change unstoppable

Lima - Life imitates art. In the recent season of HBO’s “Newsroom,” anchor Will McAvoy tries his best to get a viewer-friendly forecast on climate change from a scientist who won’t shut up, not a doomsday prediction that will turn them off.

Climate change affects the soil ecosystem

Researchers looking at the impact of climate change have begun to study the ecosystems of the soil. This is by studying variations to the microbial composition over time.

Canadians want action on climate change

Ottawa - A survey on Canadians’ views about climate change has shown that the vast majority majority (88 per cent) want Canada to take significant actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Rising temperatures signal problems for honeybees

A bee parasite, normally associated with more exotic climates is threatening British bees. A new research model indicates that a rare gut parasite could cause increasing damage to U.K. bees as the climate warms.

Underwater robot sheds new light on Antarctic sea ice

Cambridge - A collaborative effort involving scientific teams from the UK, U.S. and Australia has produced the first detailed, high-resolution 3-D maps of Antarctic sea ice with the help of an underwater robot.

The hiatus is over — Ocean temperatures rising again

Global warming is not slowing down. A new report based on an analysis of ocean temperature datasets shows that as of January 2014, temperatures in the world's oceans have started to rise again after taking a 13-year hiatus.

U.S. lightning strikes to increase 50 percent as planet heats up

As man-made global warming continues to make the earth a warmer and wetter place, lightning strikes will also increase — by as much as 50 percent by the end of this century, scientists say in a new study.

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.
