Under the influence of greenhouse gases, changes in air temperature and wind patterns are increasing rainfall and crop yields in the drought-prone Sahel region.
New research suggests that climate change won’t lead to more storms after all -- but the bad ones could be even more devastating.
International scientists say global warming could double the frequency of the extreme La Niña weather phenomenon that triggers floods and hurricanes.
Coastal areas that would not expect to be hit by violent hurricanes or typhoons face a growing threat of devastation as scientists discover that tropical cyclones are moving further north and south.
Winds of change caused by greenhouse gases in the Southern Ocean are keeping Antarctica cold but parching Australia by “stealing” more of its rainfall.
