36:03 | Arson? Lack of hazard reduction? Nothing new? This video looks at what fire chiefs and scientists say is the REAL cause of the 2019-2020 fires in Australia, in response to amateur theories proposed by media commentators and bloggers.
14:48 | Bush fires have been a natural part of the Australian ecosystem for at least 400,000 years, but whenever human beings get involved we see a spike in the data record.

12:43 | New research from Rice University has revealed a surprising link between extreme cold events and global warming.

4:49 | The Kincade and Getty fires are the latest in a long pattern of burning in California. But is climate change the culprit? And what can the fires teach us about how we’ll cope with a warming world?
2:07:48 | The CSIS Stephenson Ocean Security Project invites you to a forum on the relationship between climate stress and maritime security.
17:04 | The IPCC have just released the third of three special reports on the perilous state of our our climate. We take a brief look at some of their headline findings and recommendations.
5:48 | Global warming is melting ice and raising seas, but our impacts on the watery world is far more complex than sea level rise.
42:26 | Every year, climate change is destroying two of the currently 70 square kilometers of glaciers left in the Alps.
4:59 | A brand new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shows just how much global warming affects our use of land, and how land use affects the planet.
26:19 | Global emissions are on the rise, prompting the United Nations to warn about what it calls the risks of ‘climate apartheid’, where the wealthy pay to escape the devastating consequences of climate change, leaving the poor to suffer.
26:12 | A recent UN report warned that global warming could undermine the right to life, food, water, democracy and the rule of law – for hundreds of millions of people.
12:35 | Doyte lives in South Omo, Ethiopia, one of the most remote areas in the world and one of the hardest hit by climate change.
13:48 | India’s climate disasters are fueled by its governments’ resource mismanagement and fossil fuel consumption, says political economist Shouvik Chakraborty.
13:31 | The Great Ocean Conveyor, The Thermohaline Circulation, The Gulf Stream, AMOC… all terms we hear quite a lot these days.
1:25 | Climate change could pose a risk to coral by driving “ocean acidification” – a phenomenon that occurs as seawater absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere.
11:04 | Are we still heading for the catastrophic future the movie depicted?
13:22 | Climate and Environmental Crisis. That’s the message of a new report published this week by the Institute of Public Policy Research in the UK.
26:12 | Women suffer more from such things as indoor air pollution, lack of nutrition, or mortality due to floods, storms and droughts. But according to the UN, women are also the world’s best bet in the fight for a climate change free planet.
9:07 | The strong indications are that, ironically, it’s the warming of the planet that’s causing this phenomenon to impact on populated areas of the Northern Hemisphere in more and more extreme ways.
13:46 | The National Climate Assessment summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States, now and in the future.
11:44 | In the final part of our conversation with Peter Wadhams we talk about one of the most destructive outcomes of climate change – global sea level rises. We also look at the Camp Fire of California.
10:22 | Professor Wadhams explains the thermohaline circulation, sometimes called The Ocean Conveyor Belt, and why it’s slow down means big trouble for many areas of the globe.
11:05 | Peter Wadhams’ book, A Farewell to Ice, outlines in exquisite detail the changes in the arctic over the last four decades and the threats that these changes pose to our climate.
6:25 | Decades of environmental threats like warming waters and ocean acidification have pushed reefs to the brink. Can we use science to bring them back?
6:11 | As the world figures out how to live with a rapidly changing climate, traditional knowledge from indigenous cultures could help us understand just how things are transforming.
26:17 | For those of us a long way from the tropics, diseases like malaria are normally a distant threat or holiday worry. But now there are serious concerns that hotter summers are bringing it all much closer to home – and not just malaria.
11:39 | We take a look at the basic scientific theory behind this phenomenon and look ahead to what it could mean for our oceans and food chain.
3:10 | Thanks to climate change, disease carrying critters are expanding their ranges, and their seasons are getting longer — meaning they have more space and more time to take a bite out of you or me.
26:12 | The news that more than 50 people have died in Greek wildfires is just one part of a very much bigger story.
5:47 | Climate change is amplifying extreme weather events like hurricanes, heatwaves and other disasters. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of how best to prepare for this stuff?
4:52 | Climate change is affecting lots of living things, including the fluffy, cute ones. What can the adorable pika teach humans about adapting to global warming?
1:51 | Snowshoe hares face shrinking snowy habitat, but because some populations have a mix of genes for coloration, they may adapt to the changes in their environment.
