March 20, 2019 What does oceanic carbon uptake achieve? Greenhouse gas that sinks below the waves slows global warming a little and makes the water more acidic.
March 19, 2019 The day in 1815 when the world’s climate went berserk was only the start of months and years of global climate disruption and social unrest.
March 18, 2019 Support is growing for a plan to tackle climate change, our economic crisis and deepening social divisions together − the Green New Deal.
March 15, 2019 Different computer simulations deliver variant and uncertain futures. One research team has studied millions. And in most cases the outlook remains ominous.
March 14, 2019 If you like chocolate you'll love this: the same tree that provides your indulgent treat is helping to slow climate change, thanks to cocoa fuel.
March 13, 2019 As more acidic seas spread across the globe, conditions for survival start to change. That could close vast volumes of ocean for vital forms of life.
March 12, 2019 Honouring the Paris climate pledge would provide a fair catch for the world’s fishing fleets. Warm up the oceans, though, and everyone loses.
March 11, 2019 As human growth adds to our numbers and demands, other species’ survival chances shrink. Scientists can now name 1,700 creatures at ever greater risk.
March 8, 2019 Its huge icecap is thawing faster because Greenland’s winter rain means its snows are being washed away, or falling at higher altitudes.
March 7, 2019 As turbines grow in size and costs tumble, offshore wind turbines, both floating and fixed to the seabed, have vast potential.
March 6, 2019 Thanks to a natural sea temperature cycle, a Pacific climate wobble, the Arctic Ocean could be ice-free in the summer in a decade or two.
March 5, 2019 The nuclear industry's fierce fight for survival is leading several countries to develop smaller, off-the-shelf nuclear reactors.
March 4, 2019 On the fishing grounds, they already know about global warming. As fish flee warmer seas there are winners – but many more losers.
March 1, 2019 Biodiversity, the web of life, is on the decline. That includes the natural ecosystems that directly and indirectly manage the catering for humanity’s supper table.
February 28, 2019 As greenhouse gas consumers, young forests use carbon more industriously in the temperate and cool zones than older forests.
February 27, 2019 The planet’s temperature could zoom in an ever more greenhouse world, as researchers identify a dangerous possible cloud tipping point.
February 26, 2019 Long ago the polar ice vanished and tropical animals swam the Arctic. Greenhouse gases could reach that 56m year carbon level again in 140 years.
February 25, 2019 More than 30 years after it exploded, Chernobyl’s legacy still casts a baleful shadow over hundreds of thousands of lives.
February 22, 2019 Three outcomes could follow if climate change stokes mayhem, conflict and violence. It might be helpful to think about the strains to come.
February 21, 2019 Climate change means a big shift for city dwellers worldwide. Americans can look ahead to very different cities as the US climate heads south.
