This Month in Climate Science summarizes significant new research and provides a clearer picture of the threats posed by climate change. Studies published in August 2019 reveal disappearing sea ice, changing harvest seasons and more turbulence for airplane passengers.
In the global battle to rein in greenhouse gas emissions and prevent disasters, most economists agree that a carbon price is a key tool in the toolbox. But what’s less commonly discussed are what policies are needed in addition to a carbon price.
The latest anti-climate proposal from the Trump administration would weaken regulations on methane from oil and natural gas. Colorado, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and California offer innovative solutions for curbing this growing emissions source.

A new IPCC report found there could be significant benefits to land-based carbon removal, such as through afforestation and restoration. But if deployed incorrectly, these strategies could create greater pressures on land and compromise food security and ecosystem health.
The latest IPCC report finds that while land sequesters almost a third of human-caused carbon dioxide emissions, it will be impossible to limit temperature rise to safe levels without fundamentally changing the way the world produces food and manages land.
This Month in Climate Science summarizes significant new research and provides a clearer picture of the threats posed by climate change. Studies published in June 2019 show that primates could face unprecedented levels of extinction due to warming, and that dengue fever could threaten 60% of the world population by 2080.
