Two hurricane and climate scientists explain what’s known – and still unknown – about global warming’s influence on intensity, rainfall and much more.
The findings underscore the urgent need to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help animals find cool places to shelter.
Injecting reflective particles into the atmosphere won’t immediately cool the entire planet. A new study shows how parts of the US, China and Europe might still see temperatures rising a decade later.
In a warming world, a species’ ability to acclimatise to temperatures is crucial. But young ectotherms can struggle to handle the heat.
A climate scientist explains the forces behind the summer’s extreme downpours and dangerous heat waves, and why new locations will be at risk in the coming year.
Australia last week moved to tackle the climate crisis when federal parliament passed Labor’s climate bill. But the new law is just the first step.
Cement is responsible for more than 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Its emissions doubled over the past two decades, and demand is still rising fast.
A field glaciologist explains the changes scientists are now seeing.
The photographs show how climate change is disrupting our marine ecosystems – sometimes in ways previously unknown to marine scientists.
The tropics are projected to face almost daily dangerous heat by 2100. And “extremely dangerous” heat that’s almost unheard of today will occur more often in several regions.
Hot rooftops and a looming skills shortage – these are just a few challenges faced by crucial yet undervalued air-conditioning repair people.
Newspapers were writing about climate change more than a century ago. Here’s why it’s taken so long to start tackling it.
Our ability to cool the planet takes humanity into unchartered territory. In a new paper published today, researchers discuss the big unknowns in a post net-zero world.
It’s not just mosquitos. Flooding, extreme heat and other climate-related hazards are bringing people into contact with pathogens more often, and affecting people’s ability to fight off disease.
If global health care was a country, it would be the world’s fifth largest emitter. There are simple ways health care can reduce its emissions, starting with scans and gases.
The findings underscore the urgency of limiting global warming to below 1.5℃, to avert the most catastrophic climate harms.
Extreme downpours caught people off guard from Las Vegas to Kentucky in July 2022.
Tidal marshes can build up their soil to keep pace with sea-level rises – up to a point. It turns out the point when the marsh is drowned matches the average rise when global warming exceeds 1.5℃.
Labor won’t concede to the Greens’ core demands on the bill, but a climate “trigger” on new developments could ensure the bill has real force.
Global heating may be making the weather systems behind heatwaves more common in Europe.
