Countries such as Mauritania have contributed little to climate change, yet face the worst impacts such as crop failure.
The countries that have contributed the least to climate change will experience the worst of its effects.
Hurricane Sandy was a turning point on views about climate change, but the effect doesn’t trump political views.
Despite what some climate advocates think, extreme weather events do little to sway Americans' political views on climate change.
Larry Marshall is right that the question of global warming has been answered. But there are many more climate questions to answer.

CSIRO's climate scientists haven't "finished" just because climate change is real. Without their expertise, we could waste billions on drought or flood planning that's not backed by the latest science.
CSIRO still needs to focus on preventing the impact of climate change, such as drought, in Australia.
Any shift in the focus of climate change research at CSIRO should look at how to stop the problem and reduce its impact on Australia.
CSIRO has contributed to surprising discoveries in climate science. Pictured here is the research ship RV Investigator.

CSIRO's climate science has contributed a number of important, and unexpected, findings.
Young secondary forest in Costa Rica, with old-growth trees visible in the background.

Forests that grow back after being cleared for agriculture or by logging grow back much faster than old-growth forests, soaking up carbon and providing vital habitat.
Women read Zika virus flyers at the departures area of Santiago’s international airport, January 28, 2016.
Models based on where the mosquitoes that transmit Zika are found and human travel patterns to and from infected areas are key to predicting where the virus will spread.
It’s all a matter of perspective.

Former PM's business advisor Maurice Newman recently claimed that satellite temperature data tell a different story to data collected on the ground. He's right - but that's how it's meant to be.
Pencil pines are found nowhere else in the world, and are extremely sensitive to fire.
Bushfires are threatening Tasmania's World Heritage area and ancient plants, warning us of a possible future under climate change.
The Western Cape in South Africa has mapped out a plan to help farmers cope with expected climate change threats to agriculture.
South Africa's Western Cape is the first region in the country to put together a comprehensive plan to help farmers deal with changes in weather patterns brought on by climate change.
Some people just refuse to believe in climate change no matter what the science says.
No matter how much evidence scientists present in support of climate change there are those who refuse to believe it. They think it's all part of the consprarcy theory.

The Urban Heat Island is an inevitable outcome of urbanisation – but as the Earth gets warmer, that's cause for concern.
Geoengineering could help regions affected by climate change deal with the problem.

What we need now are not 'positive trends' on emissions, but radical step changes.
Hurricane Pali churns over the eastern Pacific on January 11.

January hurricanes are rare events, but two have already formed this month. Atmospheric scientist Adam Sobel explains the conditions that generated Pali and Alex.
Record global temperatures, driven by El Nino, contributed to devastating fires in Australia.

2015 was the world's hottest year ever by a long shot. But what drove the record temperatures, and what role did climate change play?
Wildfires devastated large parts of California and the West, which has been suffering from a historic drought.
Thanks to El Niño and climate change, last year broke temperature records – and reduces any importance attached to the global warming 'hiatus.'
Modern Africa…or prehistoric Britain?
But it's been millions of years since carbon in the atmosphere last warmed the planet to this extent.
Oil prices are rattling investors.
Carsten ten Brink
The future does not bode well for global oil. This, however, is for reasons related to climate change, not because of tumbling prices.
