The melting of Antarctica is accelerating at an alarming rate, with about 3 trillion tons of ice disappearing since 1992, an international team of ice experts said in a new study.

Another climate milestone as Carbon dioxide level passes 411 ppm

Levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere exceeded 411 parts per million (ppm) in May, the highest monthly average ever recorded at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, home to the world’s longest continuous CO2 record.

NOAA — Increased coastal flooding trend is likely to continue

People living along the U.S coast may see flooded sidewalks and streets more frequently this year due, in part, to El Nino conditions that are predicted to develop later this year, and from long-term sea level rise trends.

Bursting 'carbon bubble' will leave trillions in stranded assets

Plunging prices for renewable energy and rapidly increasing investment in low-carbon technologies could leave fossil fuel companies with trillions in stranded assets and spark a global financial crisis, a new study has found.

Op-Ed: How will Trudeau justify buying a pipeline and climate change?

While anti-pipeline protesters are regrouping after the government announced Canada is purchasing the Trans Mountain pipeline, and with two weeks to go before the G7 meeting, many wonder how Trudeau will defend his stance on climate change.

Study: Ocean waves play greater role in trapping CO2

Researchers in Britain have published a groundbreaking study revealing how ocean waves play a much greater role in trapping greenhouse gases than previously known.

Climate-related flooding can disrupt global trade chains

Intensifying river floods caused by global warming may hamper national economies worldwide, with effects propagating through global trade and supply networks, a new study says.

Something is killing Florida's coral. Wide swaths of healthy coral have been turned into ghostly skeletons along the 360-mile long stretch the barrier reef, the third largest of its kind in the world.

Veridium teams with IBM and Stellar on carbon credit blockchain

Veridium Labs is collaborating with IBM to help transform the carbon credit market using IBM blockchain technology with the goal of making it easier for companies to offset their environmental footprints.

Trump quietly kills NASA greenhouse gas monitoring program

Apparently, withdrawing from the Paris climate accord wasn't enough. Now, the Trump administration wants to restrict the world's ability to measure carbon emissions.

Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 break new record

Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide have set a new and worrying record. For the first time in recorded history, levels of CO2 averaged higher than 410 parts per million (ppm) for the entire month of April.

How electric vehicles are charged in China affects air quality

Beijing - Researchers from Harvard University and Tsinghua University in Beijing found that private electric vehicles in China can have a positive effect on CO2 reduction if owners can be incentivized to slowly charge vehicles during off-peak hours.

Study: More fires and drought will lead to fewer trees in Klamath

The increase in fires and summer drought brought on by climate change is increasingly altering the type of tree species and the carbon sequestration of forest landscapes, particularly in the Klamath region of the United States.

U.S. and UK join forces in biggest ever Antarctic field campaign

The UK's Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the US National Science Foundation (NSF) are getting ready to deploy about 100 scientists to the Thwaites glacier in West Antarctica as part of a five-year study to find out how fast it is melting.

New study makes the case for supply-side climate change policies

It has been difficult to come to a global consensus on what are the best policies for mitigating the effects of climate change. A new study out this month suggests the unspeakable - restricting the supply of fossil fuels.

UCLA study forecasts a severe climate future for California

Los Angeles - A study published on Monday by climate scientists at UCLA forecasts wild extremes of drought and flooding in California as the climate continues to warm.

One impact of climate change occurring in U.S. no one hears about

A boundary that divides the humid eastern U.S. and the dry western Plains appears to have shifted 140 miles to the east over the past century due to global warming, new research suggests. How will this affect farming and agriculture in the years to come?

Abnormally warm Atlantic waters found off Nova Scotia

Halifax - While Nova Scotia, Canada was digging out from a spring snowstorm this week, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) off the coast, scientists were recording record-high ocean temperatures in deep water that reached 14 degrees Celsius (57 degrees Fahrenheit).

Slow down of Atlantic Ocean circulation is bad news for everyone

The Atlantic Ocean circulation that carries warmth into the Northern Hemisphere’s high latitudes is slowing down because of climate change - and is at its weakest point in the past 1,600 years.

A discussion on transitioning to a green economy — Part 1

Concerned that workers will be left out of jobs as countries transition to a green economy, the International Trade Union Confederation is advocating for a clear and fair transition plan for employees when it comes to this kind of industry-wide changes.

High Arctic sea ice breaking off and moving toward coastlines

Footage shot across the North Atlantic captured a stunning view of accumulating sea ice over Brighton, Newfoundland. According to researchers, this also serves as a stark reminder of the impact of climate change.

Glacier ice loss has reached the 'point of no return'

Glacier ice loss is a key contributor to sea-level change, slope instability in high-mountain regions, and changing volumes of river flow. A new study shows that we cannot stop glacial melting in this century - no matter what we do.

Western states, B.C. united despite lack of U.S. leadership

Officials representing British Columbia, Washington state, Oregon, and California met Friday at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel in B.C. to mark the 10th anniversary of the Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC).

Parts of California's Bay Area sinking faster than expected

San Francisco - Current global projection maps depicting sea level rise are what city managers and planners depend on for future development, however, coastal subsidence has very seldom been considered in making these projections. The Bay Area is a good example.

Looking to the skies: How aerosols affect clouds

Global climate is a very complex phenomenon. To understand one aspect, the use of human-made aerosols, researchers have been studying the effects of sprays on clouds.

Changing tundra vegetation spells change for Arctic animals

For well over two decades, scientists have kept track of the changes occurring in the Arctic tundra habitat. Ankle-high grasses and sedges have given way to a sea of woody shrubs, some growing to neck-deep heights as the climate warms.

Understanding ocean turbulence improves climate science

According to a new study a more in-depth understanding of ocean turbulence could improve existing climate models and proved a more accurate prediction of climate change.

Snowpack levels in western U.S. show 'dramatic' decline

A new study of long-term snow monitoring sites in the western United States found declines in snowpack at more than 90 percent of those sites - and one-third of the declines were deemed significant.

New study — Climate change threatens major crops in California

Over the last 10-years, farmers in California have experienced the symptoms of climate change — less winter chill, crops blooming earlier, more heat waves and years of drought when the state baked in record temperatures.
