Snowshoe hares in warmer zones have thinner fur, and some are not turning white in winter. As climate change warms the Northeast, will this species adapt?
Analysis of 12,000-year-old Antarctic ice reveals that methane leaks from fossil fuel extraction play a larger role than previously thought.
More and more research shows that we are likely to pass the 2 degree Celsius temperature limit much of the world has agreed on. Where did that limit come from, and what if we miss it?
Unlike the more abstract idea of global climate change, pollution is tangible and its effects are obvious.
Tonight on the ABC's Catalyst, scientist Tim Flannery asks if seaweed can save the world. It's a bold claim for algae, but seaweed could play a key role in keeping climate change in check.
Green roofs could play a critical role in helping cities cope with extreme rainfall events in the age of climate change. The roofs essentially suck up stormwater like sponges if designed properly.
The ice sheet is melting and permafrost is thawing. What's happening in Greenland will speed up climate change across the world.
Why is it so hard to reach consensus about how to slow climate change? Multiple time lags get in the way: some make it hard to convey the risk, while others prolong the search for solutions.
The Trump administration's decision to dismiss or accept a government-prepared climate report will have life-or-death consequences, says a climate scientist involved in the previous report.
Eleven years after its release, An Inconvenient Truth, the iconic climate documentary, has spawned a sequel. But did the original do more harm than good by polarizing Americans on climate change?
When artists and scientists get together, they fuel each other's creativity and inquiry.
Taking inspiration from the spread of world religions, Quentin Atkinson and Shaun Hendy argue scientists need to do more to signal commitment to ideas they want to spread.
A new lawsuit against the CBA puts climate change in a new legal light: a financial hazard. The case opens up fresh lines of attack on institutions that contribute to climate change.
Heavy rains, poor and clogged drainage systems have made many towns and cities in Nigeria susceptible to massive flooding.
Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth woke up the world to climate change. But with its sequel hitting cinemas now, it's not clear that 'big issue' documentaries make a difference in the long term.
While climate denialism impedes policymaking in both the US and Australia, there are key differences in their political and public cultures.
Why assembling two teams to debate climate change is all about political spectacle and sowing doubt – and has nothing to do with actual climate science.
People universally believe scientists' solar eclipse calendars, but vaccine warnings or climate predictions are forms of science that strangely do not enjoy equivalent acceptance.
Climate scientist Mark Maslin interviewed the former US vice-president about his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel.
Science provides a useful way to explore and understand the natural world. But it also has a richness, diversity and creativity that is often overlooked.
