Records show Arctic sea ice in October was at its lowest and isn't recovering as fast find new study

Water temperatures in the eastern part of the Arctic, north of Siberia, was two to four degrees warmer than normal, and in the Baffin Bay, it was one to two degrees warmer.

September was the hottest month in 141 years with global temperatures averaging 15.97 Celsius: NOAA

The globe set this record despite a La Nina, which is a cooling of parts of the central Pacific that changes weather patterns and usually slightly lowers temperatures.

'Arctic ocean is dying' says scientist crew that observed the epicentre of climate change for a year

The 140-million-euro expedition, consisting of a team of several hundred scientists from 20 countries, are bringing back 150 terabytes of data and more than 1,000 ice samples.

Greenland on way towards losing ice faster than any century in last 12,000 years, say scientists

Researchers are of the opinion that countries around the world need to take action to reduce emissions, slow decline of ice sheets and mitigate sea-level rise.

Climate change reference curve spanning 66 mn years made using ocean sediments

The reconstruction and analysis show that Earth's climate can be grouped into discrete states, based on changing greenhouse gas levels and growth of polar ice sheets.

Rising temperatures making oceans stable, reducing carbon absorption capacity warns scientists

These findings have profound and troubling implications which include potentially driving more "intense, destructive hurricanes" as ocean surfaces warm.

Siberia is facing forest 'zombie' fires as a result of climate change, releases huge amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere

It is a vicious circle where these fires made worse by climate change release gases that in turn exacerbate climate change.

Richest one percent responsible for twice the carbon emissions than half of world's poorest population

With just 1C of warming so far, Earth is already battling more frequent and intense wildfires, droughts and super storms rendered more powerful by rising seas.

Global sea levels to rise drastically by 2100 due to Greenland, Antarctica's melting ice sheets

Global sea levels to rise drastically by 2100 due to Greenland, Antarctica's melting ice sheets

Calculating the Antarctic sheet was trickier as the East Antarctic ice sheet can gain mass due to global warming, as warmer temperatures cause increased snowfall.

Scientists develop new way to determine how fast the Indian Ocean is warming by analysing earthquake sounds

They used existing seismic monitoring equipment and historic data on earthquakes find out how much the temperature of the ocean has altered and continues changing.

Greenhouse gas emissions can lead to sea level rise of 40 cm by the end of this century

Greenhouse gas emissions can lead to sea level rise of 40 cm by the end of this century

Even in the lower emissions scenario, the Greenland sheet would raise oceans by around three cm by 2100 — beyond what is already destined to melt due to the additional 1C of warming humans have caused in the industrial age.
