The cooler climate pattern is predicted to persist for the third winter in a row, bringing an increased risk of powerful hurricanes to the eastern U.S. and flooding to Australia.
It's real. It's happening. It's accelerating. And it's our fault. Human activity — particularly the production of greenhouse gasses from fossil fuel emissions — is reshaping our planet, effecting rapid environmental change at a rate never seen before. Global temperature averages are creeping upward, seas are warming, rising and becoming more acidic, and extreme weather events such as droughts, wildfires, floods and powerful storms are more commonplace. Here's where you'll find the latest on the effects of climate change, and the measures that scientists, world leaders and innovators are taking to reduce our harmful impact on the planet and mitigate the damage already done.
The Siberian tundra will shrink even with ambitious greenhouse gas reductions. Without them, it could disappear altogether.
Humans aren't just making Earth warmer, they are making the climate chaotic, a stark new study suggests.

A new study into a cold patch of the Arctic, known as the "Blue Blob," has shown that it is slowing the rate Iceland's glaciers are melting, but only for a few more decades.

Satellite data shows that Greenland’s ice sheet has lost enough water over 20 years to submerge the entire United States.
Deforestation can include clearing the land for farming or livestock, or using the timber for fuel, construction or manufacturing.
Signs of accelerating global warming abounded this year, but we could still prevent the worst-case scenarios — if we act soon.
