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.

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.

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
