This paper attempts a comprehensive accounting of climate change vulnerability for 233 states, ranging in size from China to Tokelau. Using the most recent evidence, it develops risk indicators for three critical problems: increasing weather-related disasters, sea-level rise, and loss of agricultural productivity.

This research aims to develop a model that may be used to determine the effective adaptive measures to implement in a system affected by climate change.

This report addresses the broad-ranging impact that climate change may have on economies and financial markets over the coming decades.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has published a brochure titled "Weather Extremes in a Changing Climate: Hindsight on Foresight," which describes extreme events that have occurred between 2001 and 2010.  In addition to describing the examples of recent weather extremes, the brochure provides a map of extreme events over the decade and explores whether observed facts a

Scientists have established a link between the cold, snowy winters in Britain and melting sea ice in the Arctic and have warned that long periods of freezing weather are likely to become more frequent in years to come.

An analysis of the ice-free regions of the Arctic Ocean has found that the higher temperatures there caused by global warming, which have melted the sea ice in the summer months,

Paris: Counter-intuitive but true, say scientists: a string of freezing European winters scattered over the last decade has been driven in large part by global warming.

The culprit, according to a new study, is the Arctic


As delegates strug gle to arrive at a consensus on key climate change issues at the annual climate change conference in Cancun, the World Meteorological Organisation has released a report which says 2010 is the hottest year ever recorded.

Extreme weather events are becoming more common as the world warms
