Study highlights combined effects of extreme heat and humidity, which are especially dangerous to human health
Meteorologists agree that temperatures will continue to rise, and record years like 2019 are becoming the new baseline
David Schwartzman argues that we can’t prevent catastrophic climate change without negative carbon emission technologies
Existing emission policies will not harm oil and gas profits. They also won’t stop global warming from rising to globally destructive levels
Emissions are rising. Each decade is warmer than the last. The oceans are heating up. Australia is burning. And that’s just January.
Socialists debate whether nuclear can generate the power needed to improve the economic well-being of the vast majority of people, without carbon emissions.
Carbon cycles regulate the Earth’s temperature and provide essential elements of life. Capitalist industry and agriculture are disrupting those vital life support systems
Seventh consecutive year of steep increases leads to the highest greenhouse gas concentration recorded in 61 years of observations
Ethanol and biodiesel boost corporate profits while doing nothing to solve the world’s growing social and environmental crises
New evidence not only strengthens the EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding, it shows that greenhouse gas impacts could be much worse than expected
This year’s increase in carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and industry is the largest in seven years. CO2 in the atmosphere has hit a new high.
In ‘Burning Up’ Simon Pirani shows why fossil fuel consumption has grown so fast, and why only radical social change can prevent climate disaster now
In past warming events, atmospheric CO2 rose too fast for many species to adapt. Today it is rising 10 times faster than at any time in 66 million years.
Can the global climate be stabilized before runaway change creates conditions that are too hot for human civilization and deadly for most species?
BP statistics show we are far from meeting the emission reduction targets adopted in the Paris Agreement. In 2017, we took a step backwards.
Secret documents reveal that the giant oil company’s scientists warned executives about the global impact of fossil fuels as early as 1981
The new U.S. Climate Science Special Report is unequivocal: climate change is real, it is caused by human activity, especially greenhouse gas emissions, and it is getting more dangerous every day
‘The last time the Earth experienced a comparable concentration of CO2 was 3-5 million years ago, the temperature was 2-3°C warmer and sea level was 10-20 meters higher than now.’
Ian Angus challenges a left-wing magazine that promotes geoengineering, nuclear power, carbon storage and other techno-fixes as solutions to climate change.
‘Save the planet: Plant a Tree!’ It sounds good, but scientists say we can’t avoid dangerous climate change without rapid cuts in fossil fuel use, starting now.
