Tropics face massive rise in heatwave deaths

Unless tropical countries adapt to warmer temperatures caused by climate change, they are bound to see more heatwave-related deaths, with Brazil, Colombia and the Philippines predicted to have close to 2,000 per cent increase in excess mortality by mid-century, says

Oceans Hit Their Limits To Cope With Rising Temperatures

Severe weather conditions like hurricanes in oceans is a signal that they have hit their limits to deal with the heft of climate change, states a report published by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The Director General of

Earth Is Heating Up Faster Than Ever

According to experts at NASA, global warming is seriously impacting planet Earth; in fact, NASA’s top climate scientist has gone on the record to say that currently, Earth is warming at a faster pace that the planet has seen in

80 Mile Crack Threatens Antarctic Ice Shelf

A huge crack that scientists found across a fragile ice shelf in Antarctica is continuing to widen and grow, a new study reveals. For some time now, experts have been observing the progression of a large rift in Larsen C,

Shellfish Infected As Temperatures Rise

Norovirus is the least of your worries. A sometimes-fatal bacteria is infecting more shellfish, even as those species are moving northward to escape warmer ocean waters. Vibrio has been making humans sick for a long time, but is more common

Severe Heat Will Soon Make Africa And Middle East Uninhabitable

Climate change could cause Middle East and North Africa to become uninhabitable by 2050, a new study has suggested. Despite the agreement of international leaders in the recently concluded UN climate summit in Paris, researchers from the Cyprus Institute and

Record Temperatures Scorch Middle East

Record-shattering temperatures this summer have scorched countries from Morocco to Saudi Arabia and beyond, as climate experts warn that the severe weather could be a harbinger of worse to come. UN officials and climate scientists predict that, in coming decades,

262 Foot Methane Crater Found In Siberia
