The Haiyan Typhoon disaster is a cautionary case for climate adaptation and mitigation because it demonstrates the seductiveness of survival myths.
Every word of the 40-page summary document has to be agreed by representatives of 195 governments.
Inequality in wealth, emissions and vulnerability means some are more responsible for climate action than others.
More than one-fifth of global warming emissions come from land use. Sustainable farming can make soil healthier and better able to soak up carbon, while saving energy and boosting food production.
A new report calls land key to solving climate change. The good news is that there are strategies for reducing carbon emissions from land use that can also produce economic and social benefits.
The 'tractors and chemicals' recipe for farming has let human populations boom, but left us with degraded soils.
From New Orleans to Haiti to Mozambique, global inequality plays a major role in making disasters deadly.
Climate change is a serious threat now for poor people in developing countries, but the COP24 conference in Poland offered them little hope of near-term emissions cuts or economic aid.
Applied games can help us to tackle problems like climate change by appealing to players' hearts and minds.
Thirty percent of global emissions will be generated from democracies governed by populist nationalist leaders who have very different playbooks than more traditional politicians.
The Paris Agreement was a breakthrough in global climate talks, but nations now face major hurdles to meeting long-term emissions goals – and maintaining global support for the deal.
We must recognize the complexity of perspectives on climate change if we want to confront it.
Climate change conferences can be bewildering. Here's a recap of how we got here, what to look out for at COP24 and what comes next.
According to a new study, the oceans have absorbed more heat from climate change than previously thought. This could mean the Earth will warm even faster in the future than scientists have predicted.
The Trump administration is trying to spike a lawsuit against the US government arguing that there's a constitutional right to a stable climate.
Conservative skeptics of climate change may support projects focused on 'resilience' – for example, preparing a community for future major weather events.
After declining for nearly a decade, the number of hungry people in the world is growing again. Climate change, which is disrupting weather patterns that farmers rely on, is a major cause.
Infrastructure systems – roads, water treatment systems, power grid – can't be built the same ways as in the past. What's a better roadmap for the future?
In the 'World Climate' simulation, people play delegates to UN climate negotiations and work to strike an agreement that meets global climate goals. Playing it has made thousands want to take action.
Convincing people to see and appreciate the threats posed by climate change is one of the great challenges of our day. Insurers may be able to succeed where scientists and educators have failed.
