So many climate models, so little time … A new way of measuring ocean temperatures helps scientists sort the likely from unlikely scenarios of global warming.
Projections of rising sea levels this century are on the money when tested against satellite and tide-gauge observations, scientists find.
A new study has reported the world will lose almost half of its valuable sandy beaches by 2100 as sea levels rise. But cutting our emissions could keep some intact.
In 2017 18.8 million people were displaced by natural disasters, with floods accounting for 8.6 million. Climate change is poised to drive those numbers higher still.
