Analysts have warned about worrisome trends in China’s commitment to fight global warming in the face of economic slowdowns
Climate change is worsening for the next generation and perhaps longer, depending on humanity’s willingness to take action
European leaders have made tackling climate change a top priority while President Donald Trump has called it a “hoax” and has dismantled environmental regulations to encourage the exploitation of fossil fuels
The 2015 landmark climate deal enjoins nations to limit global temperature rises to "well below" two degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) through a rapid and sweeping drawdown of greenhouse gas emissions.
Against the backdrop of climate change, the delicate underwater ecology of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands is hurting from declines in otters.
The government also launched the Streets for People Challenge, which seeks to make cities more pedestrian friendly
If climate change was a somewhat abstract notion a decade ago, today it is all too real for Californians.
The multi-agency United in Science report said the world had seen its warmest five years on record in the last five years, adding that extreme weather events bore "a clear fingerprint" of climate change.
In calling for climate-driven policy changes, the report’s authors likened the financial risk of global warming to the threat posed by the coronavirus today
The Swedish teenager allowed film-maker Nathan Grossman to follow her for a year after he met her in 2018
Long-dormant viruses brought back to life; the resurgence of deadly and disfiguring smallpox; a dengue or zika "season" in Europe.
Scientists say that for 30 years, the Arctic has been warming at least twice as fast as the rest of the world. However, they suggest that cutting climate-heating emissions could still slow the rate of ice loss.
Don't blame the BMC. Efforts should instead be directed at tackling climate change.
Researchers at the Canadian Ice Service said on August 3 that a huge section of the Milne ice shelf collapsed into the Arctic Ocean, producing an 'ice island' with an area of roughly 79 sq km
The latest effort, published Thursday in the journal Scientific Reports, paints one of the grimmest scenarios yet in estimating the economic fallout from sea rise if the world continues emitting greenhouse gases at the current rate.
As extreme events are becoming the ‘new normal’ in an increasingly climate-constrained world, India’s critical infrastructure must be built to withstand, respond to, and recover rapidly from the disruptions they cause
The award carries a €1,000,000 prize and the entire amount would be donated by Thunberg to project and organisations “fighting for a sustainable world”
This year’s Siberian heat wave stood out among the many studied, said attribution team co-lead Friederike Otto, acting director of Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute
While climate scientists caution that the discipline is in its infancy, advocates say the early findings have one over-riding virtue: dynamiting any remaining complacency about the scale of the disruption that lies in store.
The rising temperatures would lead to an increase in demand for energy to meet the demand for space cooling. This, if met by thermal power, would, in turn, lead to higher greenhouse gas emissions and thus, to global warming.
Amitabh Kant made the remarks during the virtual launch of the 'Decarbonising Transport in Emerging Economies (DTEE)' project in India.
While China brags about a shared dream and prosperity, the spectre of rancour it puts on display threatens self-inflicting damage
In the Siberian town of Verkhoyansk, which is known to be the coldest place on Earth, the mercury docked at 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit for the first time in recorded history.
Though its findings echo similar climate change assessment reports, the ‘Assessment of Climate Change over the Indian Region’ is the first-ever indigenous attempt to document and assess climate change in different parts of India
Unilever, the Anglo-Dutch consumer products company whose brands include Dove soap and Knorr soup, said it was responding to the "scale and urgency" of the climate change crisis.
