The ongoing rise in greenhouse gas emissions may trigger a rapid, irreversible collapse in an Antarctic ice sheet the size of Mexico, with potentially catastrophic consequences, a study published last week in the journal Nature found.
Extreme temperatures linked to climate change can be expected to cause a significant increase in the number of premature deaths, according to a report released Monday by the Obama administration.
A new report nearly doubles previous predictions for sea level rise if global emissions continue unabated, portending a doomsday scenario for many of the world’s coastal cities.

Scientists looking at the impact of rising global temperatures on the Persian Gulf region have come to a disturbing conclusion. They say a “tipping point” will likely occur by the end of this century when heat in that part of the world will make it uninhabitable for humans.

As the East Coast braces for a tropical storm later this week, research from Penn State and Rutgers universities suggests damaging storm surges have become more common as a result of climate change. Scientists can't pin any single storm on climate change, but they can evaluate long-term trends. In the study, published this week in the journal PNAS, researchers went back more than a millennium, to the year 850, tracking sea level rise and tropical cyclone behavior over time.
