A study finds that ozone-depleting substances caused about a third of all global warming from 1955 to 2005, and half of Arctic warming and sea ice loss during that period.
Report finds extreme heat, coastal storm surge, inland flooding and more violent storms will significantly impact the energy systems of the New York City area in the 21st century.
Using old tree rings and archival documents, historians and climate scientists have detailed an extreme cold period in Scotland in the 1690s that caused immense suffering. It may have lessons for Brexit-era politics.
Scientists have identified systematic meanders in the northern jet stream that cause simultaneous crop-damaging heat waves in widely separated regions—a previously unknown threat to global food production that could worsen with warming.
Taro Takahashi, a seagoing scientist who made key discoveries about carbon dioxide and the earth’s climate, has died. In a career spanning more than 60 years, he and his colleagues documented how the oceans both absorb and give off huge amounts of carbon dioxide, exchanging it with the atmosphere.
New study challenges many climate scientists’ expectations that plants will make much of the world wetter in the future.
Dozens of Earth Institute staff and students took part in New York City’s Climate Strike march.
Researchers warn that world leaders are being misled by economic assessments of future climate-change impacts.
In a coastal cave off Spain, scientists have found evidence showing that more than 3 million years ago, when temperatures were similar to those projected for the end of this century, sea levels were as much as 16 meters higher than they are now.
