An unwelcome invader from the south has begun to infiltrate the US, destroying property and reducing income – and this time the blame can be securely pinned to climate change.
Sea level rise and catastrophic coastal flooding could come early to the US Atlantic coast, thanks to marine hotspots. So sea water in the streets of Florida or drowned towns on offshore islands will not necessarily be blamed upon global warming.
White wine should be served chilled. Red wine should be served at room temperature. But inevitably the vineyard heat hits grape pickers who would count themselves not just lucky but more productive if they could pick on a mild day.
Researchers now know the difference half a degree can make. They can tell you why 1.5°C warming would be better than a 2°C climb in average global temperatures, because even half a degree Celsius could mean greater extremes of heat, more overwhelming rainfall, and longer spells of warm weather.
Even clean energy could devastate the Amazon, according to new research. A massive increase in hydropower from a series of planned Amazon dams could harm the world’s most important rainforest all the way from the slopes of the Andes to the Atlantic Ocean.
By 2100, if nations continue to burn fossil fuels at the current rates, three out of four people will be at risk from lethal heatwaves.
Sea level rise – driven by global warming and climate change – will bring new flood risks to America’s coastal cities.
Israeli researchers claim to have pinpointed the first permanent geological change made by humankind, the moment when humans first altered the planet’s geology.
Scientists believe they have settled one of the great polar puzzles − why Antarctica is warming at a rate so much slower than the Arctic region. And the answer is a simple one: Antarctica is so much higher.
