Many politicians and scientists describe climate change as one of the greatest threats facing humankind today, and from their descriptions, it may be too late to stop the negative effects of rising global temperatures.
The world stands on the brink of failure when it comes to holding global warming to moderate levels, and nations will need to take ‘unprecedented’ actions to cut their carbon emissions over the next decade, according to a landmark report by the top scientific body studying climate change.
As the world's oceans continue to warm, coral reefs are struggling to survive. In recent years large swaths of some of the world's biggest and best known reefs have died, and a recent UN report maintains that the reefs could ‘cease to exist as functioning coral reef ecosystems by the end of this century’ unless steps are taking to protect them.
The time for action is now, at least when it comes to climate change. If the world's major governments don't enact measures that limit global warming, it may be impossible to stop its progress, according to a study published in the journal Earth System Dynamics.
A new study published has warned that climate change has adversely and uniquely affected many of the 417 national parks spread across the US and its territories, according to scientists from the University of California at Berkeley and University of Wisconsin
It may be human nature to want to assign blame for terrible events — and since climate change became part of public consciousness, it's a frequently faulted for natural disasters. Is Hurricane Florence our fault for emitting climate-changing greenhouse gases, or perhaps policy makers’ fault for allowing us to do so?
