Our planet has received its fair share of visitors along the years. This one has been hiding under Greenland’s thick ice.

Pioneers of climate science win “Nobel” prize for environment

You could hardly imagine more deserving scientists to receive this award.

The hottest 5 years on record: 2016, 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2014

Long story short: it’s still bad.

Climate change will recolor much of the oceans by 2100, MIT research suggests

It’s not good news.

This surge of extreme cold is probably caused by climate change — and you’d better get used to it

Counterintuitive — yes. Disproving global warming? Not in the slightest.

How climate change leads to more frequent thunderstorms

Scientists have put a number between climate change and storm frequency for the first time.

The world’s leading economists are saying we should tax carbon. The politicians say we shouldn’t.

Averting catastrophic climate change might be possible — but only if we phase out fossil fuels immediately

Possible? Yes. Is it realistic? Not really. Should we try anyway? Hell yes!

Time, he stressed, is running out.

Green roofs can be effective against climate change — in the right climate

Green roofs are making a comeback — at least in some parts of the world.

Soils can store a lot of carbon, but not if temperatures continue to rise.

Unfortunately, the US president still doesn’t understand what “climate” means

Regardless of someone’s political affiliation, un-scientific beliefs should be taxed. At the end of the day, science is apolitical, and global warming affects us all — whether we choose to believe in it or not.
