The UK Is Shutting Down All Its Coal Power Stations

The British Government has announced that it plans to shut down all of its coal-powered fire stations by 2025, with restrictions put on their use as early as 2023.

See How Rising Sea Levels Will Ruin The World's Great Landmarks

Rising sea levels caused by unchecked carbon emissions are threatening coastal regions around the world. A new series of paired images projects two very different future scenarios — one in which we manage to hit our carbon pollution targets, the other showing the dire consequences of staying on our current course.

The Melting Antarctic Ice Sheet Is Heading Towards Irreversible Collapse

Computer models suggest that the melting West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) is melting at a rapidly accelerating rate. A new computer simulation shows that at current melting rates, the ice sheet will hit a critical point in about 60 years, and could result in a sea level rise of as much as 3m over the next several centuries.

Before And After Photos Show How Glaciers Have Totally Melted Over The Years

Global warming is melting the world. Here are photos collected from the USGS that shows how Glacier National Parks — once home to 150 glaciers in Montana and now down to only 25 — has changed over the years. Ice basically disappears in these before and after photos. In fact, you can see serious change from just two years ago.

Warming Waters May Be Releasing Giant Plumes Of Methane Off The Coast Of The US

Scientists have detected a disproportionate number of methane bubble plumes off the Washington and Oregon coast. The warming Pacific ocean may be triggering the release of this powerful greenhouse gas, which has remained frozen beneath the seafloor for thousands of years.

AP: Don't Call Them 'Climate Change Deniers' Anymore Because Of The Holocaust 

On the last day of the hottest summer in recorded history, the Associated Press made a rather timely announcement: We are no longer supposed to use the terms “climate change sceptics” or “climate change deniers” to label people who disagree the Earth is warming due to human activity.

Polar Bears May Survive By Hunting Caribou As Arctic Ice Melts

Polar bears are the furry poster children for the impact of warming Arctic seas, but new research says they may be able adapt and survive the loss of Arctic sea ice by foraging on land.

How Much Has Global Warming Worsened California's Drought? Now We Have A Number

With each passing year, human-caused global warming bullies California for more water. Each year, the heat squeezes more moisture from soils and ecosystems.

Remember When 2014 Was The Hottest Year On Record? Now 2015 Is.

Doesn’t it seem like only last week scientists confirmed that 2014 was indeed the hottest year on record? Well, you don’t have to worry about that anymore because scientists have now determined that the first half of 2015 has managed to break all those records — and 2015 will now likely be the hottest year recorded on Earth.

Find Out What's Really Warming The World With This Interactive Chart

Climate change is happening: global temperatures are rising. Unpicking why it’s happening is of course notoriously difficult, but this interactive chart correlates the observed temperature rises with the effects provided by various natural and man-made sources. The results are pretty damning.
