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.

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.

This image shows Sagar Camp, the very summit of the Barnes Ice Cap and the remains of a glaciological camp occupied in 1963 that was hurriedly abandoned. The camp has been buried by snow ever since and never seen before now. That it has just melted out is confirmed by the poles still vertically in place in the ice.
