Climate ups odds of 'grey swan' superstorms
Climate change will boost the odds up to 14-fold for extremely rare, hard-to-predict tropical cyclones for parts of Australia, the United States and Dubai by 2100, researchers said Monday.
Climate change will bring greater biodiversity to world seas
Tropical marine animals that currently thrive in warm habitats around the equator will have to spread north and south to avoid extinction as global sea temperatures rise, a study has found.
Credit scheme backfired, hiking greenhouse gases, study finds
A global scheme meant to keep atmospheric greenhouse gas (GHG) levels in check instead caused some 600 million tonnes of excess emissions, researchers said Monday.
Climate impacts on marine biodiversity
New research into the impact of climate change has found that warming oceans will cause profound changes in the global distribution of marine biodiversity.

Autonomous taxis would deliver significant environmental and economic benefits, new study shows
Imagine a fleet of driverless taxis roaming your city, ready to pick you up and take you to your destination at a moment's notice. While this may seem fantastical, it may be only a matter of time before it becomes reality. ...
Severe droughts could lead to widespread losses of butterflies by 2050
Widespread drought-sensitive butterfly population extinctions could occur in the UK as early as 2050 according to a new study published today in the scientific journal Nature Climate Change.
Air travel and climate: A potential new feedback?
Global air travel contributes around 3.5 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions behind/driving anthropogenic climate change, according to the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). But what impact does a warming planet ...
Volcanic vents preview future ocean habitats
A world-first underwater study of fish in their natural environment by University of Adelaide marine ecologists has shown how predicted ocean acidification from climate change will devastate temperate marine habitats and ...
