Back in 1999, I made an upsetting discovery. By comparing the temperature tolerance of reef-building corals with the projected effects of rising carbon dioxide levels, I found that the oceans would soon grow too warm for corals to bear, meaning ...
Soon after the 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Nepal in end-April , geologists based in Europe asserted that the tragedy was caused by climate
These experts were of the opinion that the pressure that falls upon the underlying ...
Here's a recent headline that sends chills down your spine if you're a climate
-news junkie -- and makes just about zero sense if you're any other normal person:
"A Global Milestone: CO2 Passes 400 PPM"
Translation: There's now ...
A slowdown in rising sea levels recorded over the past decade is down to a measurement error. In fact, sea levels are rising more quickly than ever.
Over the past century, the sea level has risen by around 0.2 metres, and it has been ...
Sea-level rise is accelerating, not declining as some have hoped, scientists said on Monday citing meltwater from Earth's ice sheets as the likely cause.
In 2013, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) said the global ...
Sea level rise sped up over the last two decades rather than slowing down as previously thought, according to new research.
Records from tide gauges and satellites have shown sea level rise slowing slightly over the past 20 years. But as ...
Talk of a global warming pause, or hiatus, has been widespread the past few years, as the rate of increasing temperature slowed slightly since the 1990s.
But multiple lines of evidence show that global warming hasn`t paused at all, which ...
change denial in public discourse may encourage climate
scientists to over-emphasise scientific uncertainty and is also affecting how they themselves speak -- and perhaps even think -- about their own research, a new study from the ...
An eclectic group of scientists in Antarctica, known as the "strangest continent on earth", undertake painstaking research into the effects of climate
change on local animals and the environment.
King George Island is a remote speck of ...
Pledges made by countries to slash carbon emissions are deeply inadequate to take them down to safe levels by 2030 and put the brakes on global warming, a new analysis warned Monday.
Based on the stated undertakings of the world's major ...
change could drive up to a sixth of animals and plants on Earth to extinction unless governments cut rising greenhouse gas emissions, according to a U.S. study published on Thursday.
Species in South America, Australia and New ...
The UK’s most prominent climate
change denial group is launching an inquiry into the integrity of global surface temperature records.
The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), established by notable climate
-change sceptic Lord Lawson, ...
Plants are one of the last bulwarks against climate
change. They feed on carbon dioxide, growing faster and absorbing more of the greenhouse gas as humans produce it. But a new study finds that limited nutrients may keep plants from growing as ...
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change was tucked away in a footnote. It stated that, of their various future sea-level scenarios, the estimate of the upper limit – a 1.1 metre rise by 2100 – was actually not the worst case. That is, the $226 ...
The world's largest organization of physicists clarified its position on climate
change last week, and it no longer believes, as it did in 2007, that the evidence for global warming is "incontrovertible."Instead, the American Physical ...
When a San Francisco panel began mulling rules about building public projects near changing shorelines, its self-described science
translator, David Behar, figured he would just turn to the U.N.'s most recent climate
assessment for guidance on ...
Among the most contentious of issues in Washington right now is the issue of climate
change. While both Republicans and Democrats in the Senate voted on an Amendment stating the “climate change is not a hoax,” that is pretty much the last thing ...
Some things get better when you take them out of the freezer. Ice cream, for example, is unarguably more delicious when it gets a little melt-y. (Unarguably, I say! Come at me, trolls.) But other things get remarkably worse. Take bananas - the ...
Global emissions of carbon dioxide -- one of the leading causes of global warming -- stalled in 2014, marking the first time in 40 years that there was no climb in CO2 emissions during a time of economic growth. The results suggest that efforts ...
One of redOrbit’s valued and typically inquisitive readers has asked us if we can help with a rather tricky enquiry. Our reader wonders: “Is there any evidence of disappearing (particularly by flooding) of Great Britain, and another countries, ...
In the months before the debut of the new documentary film "Merchants of Doubt," long-time climate
denialist Fred Singer contacted more than two dozen bloggers, public relations specialists and scientists asking for help in derailing the ...

change was contested.
Rajendra Pachauri, outgoing chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC), was elected unchallenged for a second term in ...
When there’s a report in the news about the latest science
change, the source is very often the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
This body plays a very important role in global climate
change policy ...
Where’s the heat? Greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, continue to be pumped into the atmosphere, but sometime around 1998, the rise in Earth’s average temperatures slowed, deviating from the rates predicted by models. Scientists have ...
In early 1998, some of the biggest fossil fuel companies in the world were hatching a plan to hijack the science
of human-caused global warming.
Representatives from major fossil fuel corporations and industry groups had joined forces ...
