The planet continues to heat up.

Sea level rise might not be as bad as predicted, despite accelerating ice sheet melting

Long story short: it’s still bad.

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.

Europe is so hot right now that it has to stop its nuclear plants

There’s a particular irony to this situation.

We can limit global warming to 1.5°C — but we need to change how we travel, heat homes, and use devices

This might just work.

Another bleak consequence of climate change: more suicides

As if climate change didn’t bring enough problems.

Japan experiences its hottest temperature in recorded history

I’m not saying it’s climate change, but it definitely quacks like climate change.

The world’s first animals also caused the first global warming event — but it took 100 million years

There’s a metaphor here, and an important lesson for ourselves.
