Future of 19 million children in Bangladesh at risk: UNICEF

Devastating floods, cyclones and other environmental disasters linked to climate change are threatening the lives and future of more than 19 million children in Bangladesh, UNICEF said yesterday. In a new report, UNICEF says that while Bangladeshis have developed admirable powers of resilience, more resources and innovative programmes are urgently needed to avert the danger […]

Last time CO2 levels were this high, there were trees at the South Pole

Trees growing near the South Pole, sea levels 20 metres higher than now, and global temperatures 3C-4C warmer. That is the world scientists are uncovering as they look back in time to when the planet last had as much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as it does today. Using sedimentary records and plant fossils, researchers […]

How climate change is pushing Central American migrants to the US

Media outlets and politicians routinely refer to the “flood” of Central American migrants, the “wave” of asylum seekers, the “deluge” of children, despite the fact that unauthorized migration across the US borders is at record lows in recent years. Comparing human beings to natural disasters is both lazy and dehumanizing, but perhaps this tendency to […]

Canada warming twice as fast as the rest of the world, report says

Canada is warming on average at a rate twice as fast as the rest of the world, a new scientific report indicates. The federal government climate report also warns that changes are already evident in many parts of the country and are projected to intensify. Canada's Arctic has seen the deepest impact and will continue to warm […]

Climate change: Warning from ‘Antarctica’s last forests’

Scramble across exposed rocks in the middle of Antarctica and it's possible to find the mummified twigs of shrubs that grew on the continent some three to five million years ago. This plant material isn't much to look at, but scientists say it should serve as a warning to the world about where climate change […]

There’s nothing inevitable about water shortages

Your report on looming water shortages (England could run short of water within 25 years, 19 March) clearly identifies the challenge of meeting demand for water while preserving the natural environment. Of course we need to address leakages and curtail wasteful water use but, fundamentally, water consumption is driven by the number of water consumers. […]

Attenborough to front climate-change film as BBC moves from teach to preach

Natural history programming is one of the oldest and most sustainable forms of TV life. It is 50 years since David Attenborough made his first major TV documentary series, The Miracle of Bali, its title capturing the eyes-wide wonder of the genre at the time.But the climate of the BBC Natural History Unit, for which Attenborough has made most […]

Soaring ocean temperatures have already cut the world’s fish stocks by nearly 5%

Numbers of fish being hauled out of the ocean have fallen by nearly 5 per cent as stocks are hit by rising sea temperatures. Cod, herring and various shellfish species are among the creatures already suffering due to climate change, according to a new analysis examining data from around the world. The decline has been even more pronounced […]

Extreme weather and global warming: Here’s what the UK can expect if emissions keep increasing

On a global scale the science is settled: human emissions of greenhouse gases have already led to a rise in global temperature of more than 1C, and the consequences are visible around the world. Already, in 2019, Australia has sweltered in record-breaking heat, while the US midwest was hit by freezing conditions colder than Antarctica. In the […]

Climate change protesters in Land’s End to Westminster walk

A five-week walk from Land's End to London to raise awareness about climate change got under way earlier. Those taking part say they don't believe the government is doing enough to tackle global warning. They will join forces with groups from around the UK to converge on Westminster for a march on 15 April. Environmental […]
