On Monday, a judge ruled that while Donald Trump can’t be named as defendant in the kids climate lawsuit, the trial will go on. It sets up a historic courtroom showdown in two weeks that will pit youths’ constitutional rights to a stable climate against the federal government and its inaction on climate change.
To address climate change, we’ve got two options. We can reduce our carbon pollution, and we can adapt to changes we’re already seeing. Money is pouring into the former bucket to the tune of nearly $280 billion in 2017, but the adaptation tap is running much drier. A first of its kind United Nations (UN)-led effort…
Elephants’ brethren—including mastodons and mammoths—once ranged across the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa. But natural climatic changes helped shrink their range and human hunters ensured their demise, leaving just elephants alive and confined to parts of Africa and Asia today.
Last week was a wild climate ride, from a landmark special report saying we basically have a decade to get our act together to Hurricane Michael decimating northwest Florida. If ever there was a time for the media to finally ask politicians about their plans to address climate change, this was it. And for once, the…
If you’ve paid attention to the past two Atlantic hurricane seasons, you’ve almost certainly seen the term rapid intensification thrown about. Hurricane Michael is the most recent example, stirring from a Category 1 to strong Category 4 storm in 48 hours.
While everyone was distracted by Kanye West spouting inanities in the Oval Office, some actual work was done in the White House yesterday. Two senators showed up for the signing of a bill that garnered unanimous support in the Congress to clean up plastic pollution in the oceans.
Hurricane Michael roared into the heart of Florida’s Panhandle on Wednesday as a historic storm. The third-strongest hurricane to ever make landfall in the U.S. left a swath of destruction that’s now becoming clear as the storm surge recedes and the howling winds subside.
Less than a month after facing down Florence, the U.S. faces another historic storm. Hurricane Michael is churning its way toward Florida’s Panhandle as a Category 4 monster.
It is with equal parts sadness and joy that I must report that the end of Fat Bear Week is upon us and the fattest bear of them all has been decided.
Hurricane Michael is on track to make landfall in Florida’s Panhandle Wednesday as one of the fiercest storms the region has ever seen. While Florence drenched the Carolinas with record rainfall and other hurricanes attack with wind, Michael’s main threat will be surge.
We’re three weeks away from a major climate case going to trial in the U.S., and a new ruling in Europe could put a little wind in the plaintiff’s sails.
The message of a groundbreaking new international climate report is clear: We need to dramatically slice greenhouse gas emissions in the next decade or say goodbye to capping global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius. That temperature target is a matter of survival for a number of small island nations.
Hurricane Michael has formed on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico and is likely to make a beeline toward the Florida Panhandle. As it moves inland, it could bring heavy rains to the still-recovering Carolinas toward end the week.
For the first time ever, an economist studying the impacts of climate change has been honored with a Nobel prize.
By 2030, we as a collective 7 billion humans will know our fate, or at the very least, the fate of the most vulnerable among us. A landmark report released on Sunday sets the clock ticking for humanity and its quest to keep global warming to within 1.5 degrees Celsius of pre-industrial levels.
The tsunami-driven floodwater has receded from Indonesia’s Sulawesi island, but the slow-motion disaster continues. The major earthquake last week and subsequent loosening of the soil has spurred landslides and even liquified the ground around the coastal city of Palu.
Things that look unintentionally like dicks will never not be funny. And so I present to you, dear reader, the map above that depicts the odds of topical storm-force winds from Tropical Storm Walaka.
It’s been a year since Hurricane Maria rapidly intensified into a terrifying monster storm, and yet scientists are still learning about it. Now, they’ve pulled back the curtain to show the public some of the data they’re looking at.
Climate change? Bad. Wind farms to fight climate change? Maybe...also bad?
The only good bear is a fat bear.
