Burning oil, coal and other fossil fuels releases plumes of tiny, dangerous particles. A new study estimates that eliminating that pollution would save about 50,000 lives in the U.S. each year.
Iraq's capital city is already seeing record heat — up to 125 degrees Fahrenheit. A report predicts more 120-plus degree days to come. And the "urban heat island" effect will make things even worse.
Some ecosystems have already been irreversibly altered, scientists say. And climate change is wreaking havoc on human health.
Arctic communities have long been plagued by soot that drives snow melt and respiratory disease. Now, humans are making their mark in Antarctica.
The last decade in North Carolina has been the warmest on record. If nothing is done to slow down global warming the trend lines are not promising.
Carbon offsets got a big boost from November's U.N. climate summit. New rules could make it easier for companies to pay for carbon-cutting projects in other countries, rather than doing it themselves.
Photographer Vlad Sokhin's latest work, Warm Waters, is an exploration of climate change traveling across 18 countries and off-the-map territories seen by seldom few.
Most Americans want the government to tackle climate change, but decades of industry lobbying and misinformation have repeatedly worked together to prevent meaningful action.
The U.N. meteorological agency says despite a decrease in emissions due to reduced economic activity during COVID-19, carbon dioxide and other warming gases continued to accumulate in the atmosphere.
A new study by the United Nations shows that the world's governments plan to carry on using coal, gas, and oil — despite promises made under the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit global warming.
