Researchers say the world may be approaching a tipping point, followed by a dangerous slide towards Hothouse Earth, an overheated planet.
Biofuels are no easy answer to climate change. Nor is storing captured carbon dioxide. The world’s great forests cut warming better than engineered solutions can.
Sea level rise and melting polar ice sheets may not cause a climate catastrophe, but they will certainly change weather patterns unpredictably.
A warmer world means more chance of extreme heat in more than one continent at the same time, and a rising threat to global food security.
The seas are rising. Ocean winds and waves are growing in speed and force. The oceans could be feeling the heat.
How forest carbon storage affects climate change is a vital part of scientists’ calculations. But fresh uncertainties keep on sprouting.
The youth protests urging political action on climate change have won strong global backing from climatologists, as over 6,000 scientists express their support.
The richest nations got richer through rising investment in fossil fuels – and the global warming they caused has made the poorest nations measurably poorer.
Major changes in the government’s policy on fossil fuels will be vital to tackling the UK climate emergency that Parliament has recognised.
Rapid progress in the solar and wind industries mean they are outcompeting fossil fuels in key markets − a renewable revolution.
While many of the UK’s traditional orchards are vanishing, new orchards are being planted to help wildlife and to slow global warming.
North and south, polar ice loss is happening faster than ever. Researchers now have a measure of the accelerating flow into the ocean.
Germany’s major automotive supplier chooses to go for carbon neutrality as it joins the climate change fast lane.
Polar change, notably the fast Arctic melt, could impose huge costs on world economies. New evidence shows how rapidly the frozen north is changing.
Long ago the polar ice vanished and tropical animals swam the Arctic. Greenhouse gases could reach that 56m year carbon level again in 140 years.
Global warming could bring yet more challenges to a hungry world. New studies have identified precise ways in which a changing climate puts crops at risk.
