Change, says the EU's plan to cut CO2 emissions 40% by 2030 ...
Temperature and rainfall are the two most basic elements in climate
change. So what can we learn from a study of local temperature records and why might it be that local factors other than carbon dioxide output are the main cause of rising ...
More than a quarter of a century old and the bane of global warming sceptics everywhere, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change is not about to fade into the sunset.
This past week, the UN body released its final report on climate
Global warming may be slightly less devastating to the Earth than feared, as new research has found that plants can absorb more carbon dioxide than we previously thought.
Climate models have grossly underestimated the power of our plants ...
Fish are moving toward the poles, and it’s not because of their “magnetism.” New research out of the University of British Columbia reveals that climate
change -- and more specifically, warmer ocean temperatures -- could result in a “large-scale ...
change and warming of the world's oceans are prompting tropical fish to move toward cooler waters near the poles, according to a study, which predicts that a large number of fish will disappear from the tropics by 2050, if the current ...
One of the most hotly-argued questions in climate
research -- whether global warming has slowed or even stopped -- appears to have been definitively answered. And the scientists` conclusion is unambiguous: the Earth continues to warm at a ...
The ongoing, intense drought in California; the nonstop storms that left parts of Great Britain waterlogged all winter; the bitter winter cold in the eastern U.S. -- these are just some of the extreme weather events from this year that could be ...
Because of the deforestation of tropical rainforests in Brazil, significantly more carbon has been lost than was previously assumed. As scientists of the Hemholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) write in the scientific journal Nature ...
A major new study finds that “scientists may have hugely underestimated the extent of global warming because temperature readings from southern hemisphere seas were inaccurate.” In short, as New Scientist puts it, “it’s worse than we ...
scientists hope to be able to tell the world almost in real-time whether global warming has a hand in extreme weather thanks to an initiative they plan to launch by the end of 2015.In recent years, scientists have become more ...

One of the biggest near-term opportunities to mitigate climate
change is to slow down deforestation and forest degradation in the tropics, where the lion’s share of the world’s forest loss is taking place. Brazil has reduced deforestation rates ...
A leading climate

Global warming may have slowed – but climate
change has not, warns Richard Black.Last week, the Western Morning News reported on a survey showing that the winter’s storms and floods had strengthened people’s belief in man-made climate
Whatever you may imagine, “peak oil” has not been discredited as a concept, a statement no less true for “peak fossil fuels.” Think of them instead as postponed. We are, after all, on a finite planet that, by definition, holds a finite amount ...
