The Heat is On

Extreme heatwaves caused by climate change are becoming more frequent and severe, necessitating urgent action to mitigate emissions and help vulnerable populations adapt.

Climate’s Ledger

Taxing investments of the wealthy could fund climate action and promote climate justice.

Pathogens

Dormant Disease

In the icy gloom where old gods sleep, microbes lie in wait with jealous, frozen rage – aching to be freed by the warmth of

Greening Strips of Change

Satellite data reveals unexpected vegetation trends along the arid Pacific slope of Peru and Chile, shedding light on climate change impacts on these sensitive ecosystems.

Sprung too Soon

The climate crisis is altering seasonal timings, causing bird breeding and vegetation ‘greening’ to fall out of sync. This phenological mismatch is leading to decreased productivity and potential declines in North American bird populations.

Diminishing Depths

Despite increased water storage from new dams, the percentage of reservoir capacity filled with water is decreasing, underscoring the need for more effective water management strategies.

Empty Echoes of Rain

Flash droughts, quick and severe droughts posing challenges to sectors like agriculture, are predicted to increase with global warming, especially in North America and Europe.

Wings of Change

Climate change drives the world’s birds to evolve at varying speeds, transforming their bodies and wings in a race against time.

Beneath Shifting Canopies

The study of Earth’s climate change and its impact on biodiversity reveals that many trees face potential extinction and decreased diversity, with uncertain consequences for ecosystems and human livelihoods.

Storms of Extinction

Entire populations of Antarctic seabirds are failing to breed due to extreme, climate-change-related snowstorms.
