Clouds can act as both blanket and parasol – warming our atmosphere at the same time as cooling it. But which effect will dominate?
Our new research uncovered stark carbon inequality across the EU.
To limit warming to 1.5℃ above pre-industrial levels, we'll need to cut global emissions by 7.6% each year this decade. It's difficult, but not impossible.
Global heating could reduce mountain glacier snow and ice by up to 80% by 2100, threatening major drinking water supplies.
The climate emergency requires the full mobilisation of scientific institutions, but the persistent compartmentalization between disciplines and difficulties of adaptation hinder their action.
Nations are signed up to limit global heating to well below 2°C, and to aim for 1.5°C. Limiting warming to the latter matters - the future of humanity and the living world is at stake.
Fossil fuels are heating the atmosphere – but the fact that we're burning them may not be the only reason.
A new study lays out what must happen immediately for any hope of limiting global warming to 1.5°C.
The climate issue cannot be considered less urgent than the social or economic crisis.
Whether to attending a conferences or giving in to a meeting, the global research community is keen on air travel. That’s a habit that needs to change.
We are on track to reach 1.5°C of global warming within 16 years according to new data.
We must recognize the complexity of perspectives on climate change if we want to confront it.
Earth is fast approaching the red lines that scientists have urged temperatures cannot cross if we have any hope of avoiding catastrophic climate change. Here are the emergency measures we need.
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.
Staying below 1.5°C will require urgent, deep and radical changes in almost every aspect of our lives.
Limiting human-induced warming will be tough, given where we start from.
Phasing out greenhouse gas emissions entirely by mid-century is possible, and promising trends are emerging. But the next five to ten years will be the real test of whether we can make that happen.
1.5 or 2 degrees? What matters is how we get there.
