Setting aside concerns about global warming, consumers are unloading hybrid and electric vehicles in favor of bigger cars, pickups and S.U.V.s.
By Tim Radford / Climate News Network Scientists warn that plant breeders will need to accelerate development schedules if they are to ensure the ever-growing population can be fed as global temperatures rise.
Denmark is preparing to open its state coffers and invest millions of kroner to strengthen its military foothold in the Arctic. The move is presented as a bulwark against the increasing problems posed by global warming. However, it may further chill the kingdom's frosty relationship with Russia.
Still not convinced the Earth is rapidly warming? Consider this: The last time the global monthly temperature was below average was February 1985. That means if you are 30 years old or younger, there has not been a single month in your...Show More Summary
Scientists say good bacteria could be the key to keeping coral healthy, able to withstand the impacts of global warming and to secure the long-term survival of reefs worldwide. "Healthy corals interact with complex communities of beneficial microbes or 'good bacteria'," says Dr. Show More Summary
By now you’ve probably heard the story first dug out last year in a terrific series by the Pulitzer prize-winning InsideClimate News. ICN learned that Exxon’s own scientists knew global warming was a byproduct of burning fossil fuels nearly 40 years ago. Show More Summary
Future global warming will not only depend on the amount of emissions from human-made greenhouse gasses, but will also depend on the sensitivity of the climate system and response to feedback mechanisms. By reconstructing past global...Show More Summary
Last December in Paris, the nations of the world agreed to an ambitious goal for greenhouse gas emissions: to bring net emissions to zero in the second half of this century. Their objective: to limit global warming to 1.5 to 2 degrees...Show More Summary
While some criticize the Paris climate target as impracticable, a team of scholars argues that it is - on the contrary - a triumph of realism. First, and most importantly, adhering to the Paris target of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius is necessary in view of the massive risks that unchecked climate change would pose to society.

Craig D. Idso In the debate over CO 2 -induced global warming, projected impacts on various weather and climate-related phenomena can only be adjudicated with observed data. Even before the specter of dreaded global warming arose, scientists studied historical databases looking for secular changes or stability. Show More Summary
With global warming, glaciers in many areas are in the red. Literally. Several types of algae flourish on the melting surfaces of glaciers, and these miniature plant-like cells have a red hue, owing to chemicals they create to protect them from the sun. Show More Summary
NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Cities in six continents joined up to form the world's largest alliance to combat climate change on Wednesday, a move intended to help making ground-level changes to slow global warming.
As the world struggles to find effective ways to limit carbon emissions and slow global warming, a recent study has found that the stakes may be higher than anyone has realized. According to Sergei Petrovskii, an applied mathematicsShow More Summary
Climate Change is a hoax, and the peddlers of the hoax know it… Ain’t no punchline for that one. It’s just true. 1. Record Ice Melt?…Not Even Close Al Gore
Estuaries and coastal systems are thought to be a relatively small source of atmospheric methane, as little as 3 percent. However, a new study has found that the methane building up in the Chesapeake Bay alone, if released, would be equal to the current estimates for all the estuaries in the world combined.
SOLOMONS, MD (June 21, 2016)--We all know by now that methane is bad for the environment. It's one of those greenhouse gases that trap heat in the earth's atmosphere and contribute to our warming climate. It's regularly emitted during the production and transport of coal and oil, and sometimes even cows get the blame. Show More Summary
Trader Joe’s, the popular California-based supermarket chain, agreed in court to spend about $2 million to reduce refrigerator coolant leaks that deplete the ozone layer and contribute to global warming. Trader Joe’s also agreed to pay a $500,000 civil penalty under a consent decree with the Justice...
LONDON (Reuters) - Nuclear reactors are not being built rapidly enough around the world to meet targets on curbing global warming, a report by the World Nuclear Association, an industry body, said on Tuesday.
As meteorologists and climate scientists work to clarify the role of global warming in making summers in the Southwest insufferable, citizens would do well to stay hydrated.
Death is only one possible outcome from coral bleaching caused by rising sea temperatures due to global warming. Australian scientists report that many surviving corals affected by mass bleaching from high sea temperatures on the northern Great Barrier Reef are the sickest they have ever seen. read more
