Two new British studies deliver ominous evidence of the long-term consequences of climate change due to the profligate use of fossil fuels.
It's not humanity alone that threatens life on earth. The bigger culprit is an economic and political system that relies on endless global appropriation of cheap food, energy, raw materials and labor.
New evidence appears that increased melting of sea ice as the Earth warms could weaken the Gulf Stream and reduce temperatures in Western Europe.
Satellite data raise red flags about the draining of underground aquifers in California and elsewhere to meet the demands of expanding populations.
Scientists warn countries in northern Europe to plan for dramatic new worst-case scenarios as climate change increases the risk of seas sweeping inland.
The southern continent’s mysteries start to unfold as scientists use satellite data to measure the extent and pattern of ice loss that threatens to be a “runaway problem."
Not cutting emissions of greenhouse gases could mean driving the planet across systemic boundaries from which there would be no return. Not cutting emissions of greenhouse gases could mean driving the planet across systemic boundaries from which there would be no return.
The rapid reduction of West Antarctica’s shelf ice has dangerous implications for sea levels in a warming world.
Due to the shrinkage of the sea ice, the survival of polar bears in Canada’s Arctic Archipelago is doubtful in around 80 years’ time.
New scientific research confirms that global warming is melting increasingly larger areas of Arctic sea ice -- and reducing its vital function of removing CO2 from the atmosphere.
