While advocates want to link the climate and biodiversity agendas, critics say nature should not be commodified and human rights safeguards are needed
Study finds aquatic species could shrink 10 times more than land-dwellers, as they adapt to a warming world.
New study published in Nature Climate Change says a combination of warming temperatures and ocean acidification is putting nearly all of the world’s coral reefs under threat.
Deforestation of tropical forests could significantly reduced rainfall, having negative impacts for people living in tropical regions, according to research published in Nature.
Scientists find rapid warming over last 50-100 years contributed to the collapse of ice shelves witnessed over last 20 years, warning of more occurrences with future warming.
New index aimed at scoring every coastal nation in the world on their contribution to the health of oceans finds a global average of 60 out of 100.
New research shows that while a slow down of carbon absorption of the planet’s ecosystems is projected, today they continue to keep up with the rising levels of emissions being released into the atmosphere.
In the first of a three-part series on RTCC, we explore what is meant by the circular economy and outline the concept’s five key principles
New research finds that the warming of ocean temperatures over the last 50 years has been largely due to man-made greenhouse gases.
The latest Earth Summit provides us with another chance to reflect on the state of the planet, but will it offer an opportunity to reintroduce nature to the heart of the environmental debate?
New research published on Nature warns that plants flowering faster from climate change could have devastating implication for ecosystems.
Unique all-season report finds risk to biodiversity in the Arctic Ocean and points towards “significant challenges” faced by the region’s nature. Meanwhile another study finds some species could still thrive in the Arctic.
New research has found the polar bear to be much older than originally thought, showing it adapted much less rapidly to harsh conditions of the Arctic. Researchers say this questions its ability to adapt to current climate change.
New study finds that the grass is not always greener. While grasslands could thrive in early stages of climate change, they will quickly deteriorate, new research shows.
Compelling new evidence suggest that rises in CO2 caused much of the global warming responsible for ending the last ice age, strengthening the link between CO2 and rising temperatures today.
New research looks to highlight the role climate change has at turning extreme weather events into the record breaking events.
New study suggests that in their first few months of life, fur seal pups could be particularly vulnerable to climate change as they use more and more energy to keep warm.
