Energy Independence Will Not Cut Emissions

Pursuing energy independence will hardly mitigate climate change, according to research reported in a paper published in Nature Energy From the University of Amsterdam Although cutting carbon…






Poor Countries Will Suffer Extreme Heat First

Poor countries will bear the brunt of climate change and experience extreme heat on a daily basis sooner than developed nations despite emitting least carbon dioxide, according to a new…


Wild Fires: More People, Fewer Fires

We have thought that climate change increases the number of wild fires. But a study shows that in large parts of the world, however, the total area…



Researchers To Study Historic Global Warming

Researchers plan to study historic global warming events from millions of years ago for insight into climate change. The project includes an outreach component with Arlington…



Mann Paper: Pause Was Not Foreseeable

Paper from climate scientist Michael Mann and colleagues asks whether the recent slowdown, or pause as some refer to it, in global warming was predictable?…



Risk Of Alaskan Wildfires To Quadruple

With the Alberta wildfire in the headlines comes this study from the University of Montana saying that the risk of Alaskan wildfires will increase four-fold this…


Global Temperature Rise Visualised

Climate scientist Ed Hawkins has posted on his blog this interesting visualisation showing the change in global temperature since modern measurements began – and it…





Stronger Storms Will Get More Intense

In cities, flooding and rainfall extremes will rise as the climate changes, according to a new study. Just how global warming is making storms more destructive has…






Study Criticises US Adaptation Plans

US climate adaptation plans are long on ideas but short on details and priorities, say researchers who have evaluated 44 local climate-adaptation plans, examining how their…


Humans Add To Risk Of Natural Fires

Demographic changes increase the risk of natural fires. Researchers studied the correlation between an increasingly warmer climate and various types of natural fires. They have also studied…


Greenland Highs Linked To Climate Change

Climate change and extreme weather – including unusually wet summers in the UK – linked to high pressure weather systems over Greenland. Study finds increase in…




Forests Synch Growth To Climate Change

Forests synchronize their growth in response to climate change. Research reveals a growing spatial correspondence among trees between the ring-width patterns found in the trees and rising temperatures,…


Historic Records Confirm Modern Warming

Early citizen scientists recorded rare historic ice data which confirms a warming trend since the industrial revolution. Meticulous record keeping reveals increasing trends towards later ice-cover formation and earlier…


Climate Change Will Affect US Forests

Model predicts how forests will respond to climate change. Drought could render the US Northeast’s mixed forests unsustainable after 2050, according to research using a new…
