Crime rates could rise as climate change bites
In a warmer world it might be best not to leave your windows open. As temperatures rise, so do crime rates, suggesting climate change will lead to millions of extra offenses in the coming decades. However, factors such as better policing may keep a lid on the problem.

2-21-14 Forget The Local Cold: Worldwide, It Was Another Hot January
Forget The Local Cold: Worldwide, It Was Another Hot January
January will go down in the weather history books as the fourth-warmest on record. That's right. No matter how brutal the winter was in North America, especially the Eastern half, it was balanced by warm temperatures elsewhere on the planet. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Climate Data Center says that last month marks the 38th consecutive January and the...more »

2-18-14 Arctic thaw significantly worsens global warming risk
Arctic thaw significantly worsens global warming risk
Melting ice is cooking the planet. Shrinking Arctic sea ice means the ocean is absorbing more energy from the sun, and it's now clear the effect is twice as big as thought - adding significantly to heating from greenhouse gases.

Can Fracking Lead the Way To Clean Energy?
Hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking, is a method of extracting trapped gas and petroleum by injecting water, sand, and chemicals underground to fracture the deep rocky layers. When Harrison first learned about the destruction fracking can inflict on rural communities and the threat it poses to the water supply, she went into shock. "I didn't sleep for three nights," she recalls, "and I'm a good sleeper."

2-12-14 Climate slowdown? Just wait until the wind changes
Climate slowdown? Just wait until the wind changes
POWERFUL winds in the Pacific are largely responsible for the recent slowdown in global warming. The intense winds have encouraged heat to sink into the oceans. But as soon as the winds die down, the heat will escape and warming will resume.
2-12-14 US 'climate hubs' to save farms from extreme weather
US 'climate hubs' to save farms from extreme weather
IT'S all hands on deck. The US is creating seven "climate hubs" to help ordinary people, particularly farmers, handle global warming.

El Niño may make 2014 the hottest year on record
Hold onto your ice lollies. Long-term weather forecasts are suggesting 2014 might be the hottest year since records began. That's because climate bad-boy El Niño seems to be getting ready to spew heat into the atmosphere.

The seven deadly sinners driving global warming
IT'S a chart that no one wants to top, but global warming's worst offenders, in absolute terms, are the US, China, Russia, Brazil, India, Germany and the UK. New calculations suggest that these nations are responsible for more than 60 per cent of the global warming between 1906 and 2005.

1-7-14 Geoengineering plan could have 'unintended' side effect
Geoengineering plan could have 'unintended' side effect
Attempts to reverse the impacts of global warming by injecting reflective particles into the stratosphere could make matters worse, say researchers. Rainfall around the tropics could be cut by 30% with significant impacts on rainforests in South America and Asia and increasing drought in Africa. Injecting aerosols into the stratosphere mimics the cooling effects of volcanoes. Deployment of a giant sunshield in space to reflect solar energy is another geoengineering idea.
