Every month, climate scientists make new discoveries that advance our understanding of climate change's causes and impacts. This installment of the This Month in Climate Science blog series explores studies published in October 2018.
Climate Watch is an online platform designed to empower policymakers, researchers, media and other stakeholders with the open climate data, visualizations and resources they need to gather insights on national and global progress on climate change.
The IPCC's study on limiting warming to 1.5° Celsius makes clear that there are no magic numbers—every tenth of a degree matters when it comes to conserving a livable climate.
Climate change was on ballots across America this week. The results were mixed but leave room for increased climate action in the next two years and beyond. What are the major climate stories to watch in the coming year?
More than 7 million people die prematurely every year due to air pollution. Curbing short-lived climate pollutants like methane and black carbon can help while also reining in global warming.
A new report from world's foremost climate scientists shows the perils of raising global temperatures by more than 1.5°C—extreme weather, coral reef die-off, food insecurity and more. The December UN climate conference in Katowice, Poland is the biggest immediate opportunity for nations to show they're taking the findings seriously.
Our This Month in Climate Science blog series offers a snapshot of the month's significant scientific literature, compiled from some of the leading peer-reviewed journals. Research published in September 2018 found that U.S. national parks are warming at double the rate of the country overall, among dozens of other findings.
Scientists say that global emissions must reach net-zero by mid-century to avoid the worst climate disasters. While G20 countries produce 75 percent of world's emissions, only a small handful have a plan for reducing them between now and 2050.
Two weeks after the publication of the landmark IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C, many negotiators and their ministers will gather in Krakow, Poland. This pre-COP session is just a few weeks before the 24th climate conference (COP24) in Katowice and just after the co-chairs of the negotiating tracks have posted revised text proposals ...
