Poorly regulated housing is leading to more greenhouse gas emissions through energy loss, increased energy requirements and greater exposure to weather extremes.
Climate change will increase the frequency of both floods and droughts in Pakistan. To address these challenges, enhancing infrastructure, building dams and educating the public are necessary.
The UK recorded blistering hot temperatures as the US and Europe also experienced sweltering heat waves.
Climate change is modifying the timing of recurrent life-cycle events with critical consequences on ecological and economic levels.
America’s public schools, which are over 40 years old on average, are not equipped to handle rising temperatures due to climate change, a new study reveals.
Much of the US has been experiencing heat waves in recent weeks. An economist explains how the often record-high temperatures can affect the economy.
Climate change has profound, but often overlooked, consequences for human health.
Species can evolve to tolerate higher temperatures – but there’s a ceiling beyond which adaptation isn’t possible.
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 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.
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.
When offspring become more “costly” to make, mothers make fewer of them. And these offspring start life with fewer energy reserves.
South Africa’s annual sardine run is occurring increasingly late, and there have been instances where it doesn’t happen at all. Here’s why.
South Africa’s environmental health workers play a vital role in helping communities respond to climate change.
Climate change threatens to cause mass extinctions – but how, exactly? New research suggests male fertility may be the weakest link.
Rising temperatures will not only hurt people in the future. Many are feeling the effects now. Those who work outdoors, those who have certain chronic conditions and the elderly are vulnerable.
Yes, it’s hot outside. And football practice is starting for thousands of kids. But coaches and parents should be careful about tellings kids to drink more water. That has been deadly.
Research shows if Australia encourages greenery on buildings, it will reduce temperatures in the city, as well as potential for flash flooding. It also creates new habitats and socialising spaces.
Keeping global warming to 1.5°C could significantly decrease the frequency of extreme climate events across Africa.
A heritage landscape researcher used the work of a Victorian aerial photographer to map a century of glacial loss in the Alps – and the results are staggering.
