Rising emissions could drain foods like rice and wheat of their nutrients, causing a slow-moving global food crisis
A new scientific report from the United Nations confirms research that climate change is decreasing the nutritional value of important food crops.
Our food system accounts for a whopping 37% of greenhouse-gas emissions, a UN report found. But it could also offer a solution to the climate crisis.
Changing the way we farm and manage land could counteract rising greenhouse-gas emissions, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
A devastating Arctic temperature rise that could submerge coastal cities and trigger species extinction is now locked in
Even if the world met its most ambitious climate change goals, winter temperatures in the Arctic will still rise 9 degrees Fahrenheit by 2050.
If you ever wondered what life will be like when climate change makes outside unlivable, Dubai can give you a good idea
Dubai has developed into a series of climate-controlled indoor spaces. You can spend entire days without ever stepping outside.
The oceans are way warmer than we thought they were, and the oxygen-starved waters are disrupting the rhythms of all kinds of marine life.
A dire new report reveals our capitalist economic system may not be up to the task of dealing with the climate disasters to come
If we can't dramatically cut emissions all over the globe within a dozen years, it'll be too late to avoid many of the climate catastrophes that scientists anticipate. The question is whether our current society and capitalist economic system are capable and willing to make the necessary changes.
The scariest parts of the new climate change report: The goals the world set are inadequate, and the track we’re on is disastrous
The world will start to see catastrophic effects of climate change — including more intense storms, searing heat waves, mass extinctions, droughts, and more — at 1.5 C of warming. If or when we hit 2 degrees of warming, the effects will be even worse.
