The risks to nature from man-made global warming – and the imperative to act – are clear.
The wet and low-lying East Siberian Arctic is likely to be a major methane source in the coming decades.
The heatwave highlights the connectedness of our climate systems: from the monsoon tropics to the southernmost continent.
In a rapidly warming world, temperature increases are a challenge to mental well-being. A group of economists quantified the relationship.
The policy response to COVID-19 has been dramatic, unlike the response to climate change, for several reasons. But it shows there's hope for real action on climate change.
Future extremes from the Indian Ocean will be acting on top of global warming, giving a double whammy effect, like the record-breaking heat and drought we saw in 2019.
When offspring become more "costly" to make, mothers make fewer of them. And these offspring start life with fewer energy reserves.
Perhaps 2℃ doesn't sound like much, but if you look through history, 2℃ temperature changes have had huge effects on the planet and people.
The study is the first of its kind to gauge how people were impacted by the bushfire crisis and how it changed their views on a range of subjects, from climate change to the government response.
Weaker winds and higher temperatures are making airlines less efficient.
Our research shows the Antarctic could be closer to a tipping point than previously thought.
A recent ruling by the UN's Human Rights Committee recognized that climate refugees do exist, and acknowledged a legal basis for protecting them when their lives are threatened by climate change.
Meltwater lakes forming at the head of glaciers are causing them to shrink faster, which will affect the flow of big rivers that supply millions of people downstream in Asia.
Having fewer children is one of the most effective ways an individual can mitigate climate change.
A new US study has found warmer temperatures will lead to more deaths from injury, for example in transport accidents, drownings, assaults and suicides. But what does this mean for Australia?
Global heating could reduce mountain glacier snow and ice by up to 80% by 2100, threatening major drinking water supplies.
Citizen scientists across North America have contributed over 1 million observations to this online platform, generating data useful for researchers.
Natural disasters are becoming more frequent and Hollywood cinema has kept pace. In a time of global warming, these 'eco-disaster' films are fraught with meaning.
More places around the world are experiencing days with record high temperatures. These prolonged hot spells may have unanticipated impacts on pregnant women, triggering early deliveries.
Climate change is causing oceans to become warmer and more acidic and to lose oxygen. Indonesian waters are not immune to these impacts.
