8 January, 2017 – New research forecasts much colder weather in northern Europe if rising CO2 emissions continue to impact on the Atlantic ocean current.
22 December, 2016 – Reindeer could help to slow down climate change by grazing on Arctic tundra and leaving vegetation that reflects more solar energy back into space.
15 December, 2016 – Bedrock drilled from deep under the rapidly-melting Greenland ice sheet contains evidence that the island may once have been almost totally ice-free.
12 December, 2016 – A recent rapid rise in methane could damage global attempts to slow climate change through cuts in carbon dioxide emissions.
6 December, 2016 − Observations of Antarctic ice pack from expeditions a century ago are helping modern scientists to understand the impacts of climate change.
29 November, 2016 – A warming climate is exposing the Arctic to the possibility of radical changes that could affect the rest of the planet, scientists say.
5 November, 2016 – Humans will have added enough carbon dioxide to the atmosphere by 2050 to melt all the Arctic’s sea ice, research predicts.
2 November, 2016 – The effects of Arctic climate change on the jet stream could mean harsher winters for some of the most highly populated regions of the world.
1 November, 2016 – Attempts to limit climate change by using the novel technologies known as geo-engineering are very unlikely to work, leading biologists say.
1 October, 2016 – New research shows that Greenland has been losing billions more tonnes of ice than thought – and gaining height as bedrock rises under less weight.
September 29, 2016 – The Arctic climate is changing so quickly that science can barely keep track of what is happening and predict the global consequences, the UN says.
