Indigenous communities are on the frontlines of the climate crisis, leading the way for innovative actions rooted in first-hand experiences of climate disasters and shifts, and knowledge transferred across generations.
The changes could affect health, agriculture and ecosystems, the study suggests.
A new study shows, for the first time, evidence of a link between human-caused global warming and melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Climate scientists often invoke the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age as natural worldwide climate swings predating human influences. They may not have worked the way we think.
A new study combs through the factors that can promote wildfires in California, and concludes that in many cases, warming climate is the decisive driver.
A new study is the latest and perhaps most convincing indication that climate change is eating the Himalayas’ glaciers, potentially threatening water supplies for hundreds of millions of people across much of Asia.
In an unusual new study, scientists say they have detected a growing fingerprint of human-driven global warming on global drought conditions starting as far back as 1900.
A new book, the second in a series of primers with the Earth Institute imprint, provides an interdisciplinary overview drought, bringing together many fields including climate science, hydrology and ecology.
A new study suggests bacteria may respire more carbon dioxide from the shallow oceans to the air as seas warm, reducing the deep oceans’ ability to store carbon.
New research shows that the Larsen C ice shelf—the fourth largest ice shelf in Antarctica—experienced an unusual spike in late summer and early autumn surface melting in the years 2015 to 2017.
