The marshlands on the coast of Louisiana have survived over thousands of years, even though the Mississippi Delta experiences some of the highest rates of coastal wetland loss in the world. Today, these marshlands have reached a "tipping point."

Global warming pushing US Southwest drought into a megadrought

A severe drought that has engulfed the American Southwest since the year 2000 is likely to soon be the most severe drought since the 800s, according to a new study.

March 2020 temperatures were sixth-warmest in Europe since 1979

Europe’s hottest winter on record ever gave way to a milder March, with below-average temperatures in some of the western parts of the continent, while global temperatures were much above average.

New study shows ocean currents are shifting toward the poles

Over the past 40 years, the world's eight major ocean gyres (wind-driven current systems) have steadily shifted toward the poles, according to new research published in the American Geophysical Union (AGU) journal.

Blood-red ice in Antarctica an ominous sign of climate change

A few weeks ago, scientists at Ukraine's Vernadsky Research Base in Antarctica awoke to find their usually pristine white surroundings drenched in a shocking blood-red.

Glaciers are disappearing faster than a few years ago

The rate of melting of Greenland’s glaciers is happening at a far faster rate than climate scientists previously realized. This is based on new data which indicates that the rate of melting is happening below water as well as above.

Outbreak of locusts in east Africa nears biblical proportions

The United Nations secretary-general has appealed for “speedy and generous” financial assistance to curb an outbreak of locusts in the eastern African desert, which may be nearing biblical proportions.

Overpopulation and global warming — Is there a connection?

Is overpopulation having a negative effect on the environment and economic stability? This is a question that in one form or another has been asked for years. There are efforts being taken to ensure human sustainability, but solutions are hard to come by.

Global warming puts Mont Blanc Glacier at risk of collapse

Courmayeur - Italian authorities have closed off roads and evacuated homes after experts warned that a portion of a Mont Blanc glacier is at risk of collapse.

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.

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?
