Researchers are teasing out the complexities of greenhouse gases and global warming.
Should temperatures climb four degrees Celsius as many scientists fear, we could be facing drought, mass extinctions and worse.
The gap between the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and countries’ planned reductions is growing, and only multiplying climate cuts can reduce global warming enough.
The Trump administration dropped the second volume of a congressionally mandated study of the climate crisis during Thanksgiving weekend in order to bury it.
Scientists are warning us vehemently that we have to be net zero carbon by 2050, and we have to jump on getting there right now, or else very bad things will happen.
Accelerating climate change is likely to result in growing forest carbon emissions, with serious consequences both for the creatures that find shelter there and the global atmosphere.
Innovative ideas by scientists and engineers to combat climate change show what the world could be like without fossil fuel.
Almost 386,102 square miles of natural forest disappeared between 2000 and 2013, along with its ability to absorb carbon and reduce warming.
Short-lived greenhouse gases such as methane will continue to affect oceans for centuries, no matter how much nations reduce carbon, research suggests.
The nation’s top science panel has sketched a way to set a fair price for cutting climate risks. Some of the president-elect’s advisers say the price should be zero.
