Weather on other planets and moons can be much more extreme than on Earth.
A future of heat and strife or humanity’s finest hour – our response to climate change today will define the 21st century.
This is not an imaginary future dystopia. It's a scientific projection of Australia under 3℃ of global warming – a future we must both strenuously try to avoid, but also prepare for.
In any given year, there's a 1% chance of a 'once in a century' flood. But that doesn't mean they can't happen more than once in quick succession.
There will be more weather-driven disasters like February's deep freeze in Texas, and energy planners aren't prepared.
The electricity sector is expected to play a key role in Canada's push to net-zero emissions. Enhancing long-distance transmission can be lower the cost of providing clean and reliable electricity.
Heat waves, droughts and deep freezes can all strain the electric grid, leading utilities to impose rolling blackouts. Climate change is likely to make these events more common.
Centuries of weather data puts Britain's cold snap in historical perspective.
The media often call unusually cold, snowy storms a 'polar vortex.' The real polar vortex isn't coming down to visit the lower 48, but changes to the polar vortex can influence winter weather.
Many storms, heatwaves, fires and droughts slipped under the radar this year.
Extreme heatwaves aren't systematically monitored in most countries in sub-Saharan Africa. This leads to unnecessary and premature deaths which are often unrecorded.
The threats of climate change to plants, animals and people in Africa mean that the continent is an excellent place for biometeorological research.
In an era of climate change and extreme weather, a microgrid — a self-sufficient, energy-generating distribution and control system — puts communities on the path to self-reliance.
Climate change has boosted the likelihood of heavy rainfall, hailstorms, flooding and drought seen in some parts of the world. What does the future hold?
A storm-driven chlorine gas release in a vulnerable community is the type of worst-case scenario that scientists and engineers have warned about for decades.
For the first time, scientists have been able to quantify how much climate change contributed to glacial melt, using more than 40 years of data from New Zealand's retreating glaciers.
Tropical cyclones account for almost four in five natural disasters across Pacific Island nations. But a new forecasting tool now gives up to four months warning for the upcoming cyclone season.
New research on marmots in the US reveals how the topsy-turvy seasons are causing havoc among wildlife.
As the planet continues to warm, extreme weather events such as heatwaves and heavy rainfall are becoming more frequent, intense and longer, according to global weather data.
Farmer interviews offer a rich and detailed perspective on extreme weather and climate change.
