Heatwaves have become longer, hotter and more frequent. This trend is accelerating from climate change.
A new study lays bare the average summer heat people in the UK can expect by century's end.
The study examined patterns of Twitter rage in hot and cold weather. Given anger spreads through online communities faster than any other emotions, the findings are important.
In South Asia, days with both extreme heat and extreme pollution are expected to increase 175% by 2050. Separately, the health effects are bad; together they will likely be worse.
Older records can tell us a lot about Australia's pre-industrial climate, before the large-scale burning of fossil fuels tainted global temperature records.
Poverty and inequality affect the likelihood of your home overheating during heatwaves.
The pandemic has exposed how vulnerable we are to unexpected climate shocks.
We might need to ignore climate change right now if only to save our sanity, but it certainly hasn’t been ignoring us.
The heatwave highlights the connectedness of our climate systems: from the monsoon tropics to the southernmost continent.
The report reveals the worst environmental conditions in many decades, if not centuries.
At the peak of a summer heatwave in Adelaide, an aerial survey of land surface temperatures reveals just how much cooler neighbourhoods with good tree and vegetation cover can be.
Autumn may bring wetter-than-average conditions in parts of southern Australia, indicating a gradual easing of the drought in some areas.
Air conditioning isn't the answer for everyone, especially for residents of the less affluent – and often hotter – suburbs of our big cities. But there are other ways to make hot days more bearable.
The Bureau of Meterology says persistent drought and record temperatures were a major driver of Australia's fire activity, and the context for 2019 lies in the past three years of drought.
The peak time for heatwaves in southern Australia has not yet arrived. Many parts of Australia can expect heavy rains and flooding. And northern Australia's cyclone season is just gearing up.

Southern and eastern Australia need to prepare for heatwaves and increased fire risk this summer, as forecasts predict hot, dry weather.
The world's fastest-growing cities are in the tropics. They are highly exposed to climate change, especially as urban heat island effects and humidity magnify the impacts of increasing heatwaves.
Climate change is expected to bring the UK both more heatwaves, and more intense rainfall.
Already heat-stressed countries will see the largest absolute increases in humid-heat and have the least ability to adapt.
