Summer in some parts of the world will become one long heatwave with a global temperature rise of just 2°C above pre-industrial levels, new research has found.

New research has prompted warnings that melting Antarctic ice can trigger effects on the other side of the globe.

We are suckers for numbers. But they don't always tell the whole story, writes Jenny Stewart.

The high rate of ice melt along the West Antarctic Peninsula is being driven by strengthening winds on the opposite side of the continent, up to 6000km away, new research suggests.

Human-induced climate change was almost certainly responsible for a marine heat wave off Tasmania’s east coast that lasted 251 days and had an area of impact seven times the size of the island, a new study shows.
