Sir David Attenborough is to present an “urgent” new documentary about climate change, looking at the potential threats to our planet and the possible solutions.
Sir David Attenborough has warned unprecedented action is needed on global warming, ahead of taking “the people’s seat” at United Nations climate talks.
Coral bleaching across the Great Barrier Reef has been happening for around 400 years, a study has revealed.
Marine heatwaves have roughly doubled in number over the last three decades and are likely to be more common and intense as the planet warms, research has found.
Heatwave deaths in the UK are set to soar if nothing is done to curb greenhouse gas emissions, research has shown.
Sheltered pockets of cool habitat in the British countryside could come to the rescue of species threatened by climate change, say scientists.
The highest clouds in the Earth’s atmosphere have generally been a rare and beautiful sight but scientists say they are now becoming more visible because of human activities.
Flooding from rising sea levels could cost trillions of pounds per year by the end of the century, a study has found.
Ocean heatwaves are becoming alarmingly more common as a direct result of human-induced climate change, scientists have warned.
An ultra-thin film that is 50,000 times thinner than a human hair could be used to protect coral reefs from rising temperatures.
Smartphones and data centres are damaging to the environment and will have the biggest carbon footprint in the tech industry by 2040, researchers have found.
Climate change is likely to have a devastating impact on king penguins if greenhouse gas emissions continue at their present rate, scientists have warned.
Tiny particles known as aerosols can influence powerful storms and are “diminutive downpour makers”, researchers have found.
The overall annual consumption of sandwiches across the UK has the same environmental impact as the use of around eight million cars a year, scientists have claimed.
Last year was the hottest on record without the influence of an “El Nino” weather pattern that helps push up global temperatures, scientists said.
Kitchen microwaves across the European Union generate as much greenhouse gas as nearly seven million cars, it is claimed.
Rising temperatures are turning almost all the green turtle population female in parts of the Great Barrier Reef, prompting scientists’ concern about their future.
The UK has seen “blurring” of the seasons again this year in the face of rising temperatures, with mixed fortunes for wildlife, the National Trust said.
Livestock is generally seen as a big contributor to greenhouse gas emissions responsible for global warming but a new study suggests going vegan may not completely solve the problem.
A prophetic “Warning to Humanity” giving notice of perils facing the Earth has been issued by more than 15,000 scientists from around the world.
Deep-water corals carry genetic variants that could help them adapt to global warming but only if greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, a new study suggests.
Our oceans may hold enough carbon in 80 years’ time to trigger a sixth mass extinction, a scientist has warned based on his mathematical prediction.
US President Donald Trump and his administration may not believe in measures to protect Earth’s climate, but scientists are still concerned about global warming and its effect on our planet.
Global warming hasn’t slowed down despite previous reports suggesting otherwise, new research has found.
Increasingly frequent episodes of extreme weather are certainly annoying when you just can’t work out what to wear, but it turns out it may have a much bigger impact on Britain’s butterflies.
