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.

Glaciers in west Antarctica are melting so quickly they are losing the equivalent of a Mount Everest of ice every two years, a peer reviewed study has found. The increasing pace of melting means the glaciers have haemorrhaged an average 83 billion tonnes into the Amundsen Sea annually over the past 21 years, the Sydney Morning Herald reports quoting the study.

Britain’s children face life-threatening heatwaves that could leave thousands dead by the close of the century, the Royal Society has warned. If governments fail to tackle climate change by the year 2100, Britain’s heatwaves will increase three-fold. At present, approximately 2,000 people perish annually in the UK as a result of high temperatures, with the nation’s elderly population most at risk.
