Global sea level could rise 50 feet by 2300, study says

Global average sea-level could rise by nearly 8 feet by 2100 and 50 feet by 2300 if greenhouse gas emissions remain high and humanity proves unlucky, according to a review of sea-level change and projections by Rutgers and other scientists. Since the start of the century, global average sea-level has risen by about 0.2 feet. […]

Climate Change and Honey bees

Climate change has had an adverse effect on pollinators. It has changed the distribution of many pollinating butterflies, bumblebees and other highly plant-dependent pollinators. These species pose a serious threat to the food supply chain worldwide. “When global warming occurs in different periods of the past two million years, the Earth takes about 5,000 years […]

NASA Sees the Development of Eastern Atlantic Tropical Storm Nadine

As Hurricane Michael barrels toward the U.S. states along the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, and Tropical Storm Leslie lingers in the Central Atlantic, Tropical Storm Nadine has formed off the west coast of Africa in the far eastern Atlantic. NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite provided a visible image of the new named storm. On Oct. 9, […]

Arctic ice cap destabilizes at ‘unprecedented’ speed

Satellite images revealing an Arctic ice cap destabilizing at “unexpected and unprecedented” speed have scientists questioning the long-term stability of some of the Earth’s polar ice caps. A time lapse video using the images shows a portion of the Vavilov Ice Cap in northern Russia thinning and slowly spreading into the Kara Sea from 1985 […]

IIASA contributes to IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has published its Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C, a new assessment on minimizing global warming, and multiple IIASA researchers were involved in its production. The report was approved by the IPCC at a meeting on 6 October in Incheon in South Korea and highlights the strong […]

The speed of #MeToo gives me hope – we can still stop climate change

After smoking and drink-driving, could climate change provide the next big behaviour-change challenge? The latest science tells us that nothing short of rapid, transformative change in our infrastructure and behaviour can prevent the loss of the climate we depend on – yet the message is only now being officially endorsed at the highest scientific level, […]

Drought-stricken farmers challenge Coalition’s climate change stance in TV ad

“This drought has really hit our family hard,” says Longreach farmer Jody Brown. “Climate change is making the droughts more severe.” Those two sentences are the opening lines to a new advertisement challenging the federal government’s stance on climate change and the drought in Australia’s eastern states. The 30-second ad will begin airing on commercial […]

California to launch its ‘own damn satellite’ to track greenhouse gases

California is set to launch a satellite to track greenhouse gases, as former US Secretary of State John Kerry and island nation leaders warned that the world is far off course to avoid the worst effects of rising temperatures. Gov. Jerry Brown announced plans for the satellite on the last day of a climate change […]

Kavanaugh’s views on EPA’s climate authority are dangerous and wrong

Donald Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh accepts that humans are causing global warming and we need to take action to stop it. The problem is that he doesn’t trust the experts at EPA to do so and wants to erode their authority to regulate carbon pollution. Chevron is the key When discussing Chevron […]

Letters: climate change – the Brexit threat

There is a tacky interface between industry and government when it comes to public health or the environment, and it is abundantly clear that Brexit is fatally shifting the balance towards deregulation (“Green watchdog will lack bite after Brexit”, News). It is no coincidence that the most prominent Brexiters are also climate change deniers because […]
