  • Seas to rise a meter even if climate goals are met

    Sea levels will rise between 0.7 and 1.2 meters (27-47 inches) in the next two centuries even if governments end the fossil fuel era as promised under the Paris climate agreement, scientists say.

  • Extreme weather 'to rise even if Paris goals met'

    The risk of extreme weather such as heat waves, floods and drought will rise significantly even if the commitments in the 2015 Paris climate accord are met, a study warns.

  • Sea level rise is accelerating

    Sea level rise is accelerating and could reach 26 inches (66 centimeters) by century's end, in line with United Nations estimates and enough to cause significant problems for coastal cities, a study says.

  • South Africa drought

    For global water crisis, climate may be the last straw

    Before man-made climate change kicked in -- and well before “Day Zero” in Cape Town, where taps may run dry in early May -- the global water crisis was upon us. Freshwater resources were already badly stressed before heat-trapping carbon emissions from fossil fuels began to warm Earth’s surface and affect rainfall.

  • US could 'conceivably' return to Paris climate deal

    President Donald Trump says that the United States could "conceivably" return to the Paris climate accord, although he stopped short of signalling any move in that direction.

  • 2017 2nd hottest year after 2016

  • 2017, the year of hurricanes, wildfires and floods

    2017 has been the year of Climate Change impacts and its horrors making to the news on a daily basis. From hurricanes to wildfires, the previous year was a constant reminder that the planet is in the eye of the great climate change storm.

  • Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

  • Scientists discover resilient 'heart' of Great Barrier Reef

    Australia's Great Barrier Reef is in peril from climate change and widespread bleaching, but scientists say a small portion may be resilient enough to keep much of the rest alive.

  • Carbon dioxide emissions

    Scientists warn of 'giant leap backward' at climate talks

    Carbon dioxide emissions are set to rise this year after a three-year pause, scientists say at UN climate talks, warning that "time is running out", even as White House officials use the occasion to champion the fossil fuels that drive global warming.
