If countries abide by the Paris Agreement's global warming target of 1.5 degrees Celsius, potential fish catches could increase by six million metric tonnes per year, estimates a new study.

Small Pacific island states could be hit by more tropical cyclones during future El Nino weather patterns due to climate change, scientists said on Tuesday.

Researchers in the United States have found that local experiences and temperatures drive belief or non-belief of people in climate change.

Reindeer are best known - at least in much of the northern hemisphere - for pulling Santa's sleigh, but a new study suggests they may have a part to play in slowing down climate change too.

A spate of extreme warmth in the Arctic over the past two months has startled scientists, who warn that the high temperatures may lead to record-low ice coverage next summer and even more warming i

Mass loss from the West Antarctic ice shelves and glaciers has been linked to basal melt by ocean heat flux. The Totten Ice Shelf in East Antarctica, which buttresses a marine-based ice sheet with a volume equivalent to at least 3.5 m of global sea-level rise, also experiences rapid basal melt, but the role of ocean forcing was not known because of a lack of observations near the ice shelf. Observations from the Totten calving front confirm that (0.22 ± 0.07) × 106 m3 s−1 of warm water enters the cavity through a newly discovered deep channel.

Jammu and Kashmir is adding 1.45 million tonnes of Green House Gases (GHG) annually to atmosphere as its dwindling forests are able to absorb only 10.21 million tonnes of such gases out of the total emissions of 11.66 million tonnes, a government report on CO2 emissions has revealed.

Proxy-based indicators of past climate change show that current global climate models systematically underestimate Holocene-epoch climate variability on centennial to multi-millennial timescales, with the mismatch increasing for longer periods. Proposed explanations for the discrepancy include ocean–atmosphere coupling that is too weak in models, insufficient energy cascades from smaller to larger spatial and temporal scales, or that global climate models do not consider slow climate feedbacks related to the carbon cycle or interactions between ice sheets and climate.

Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Global Warming due to HFC-23, 05/12/2016. Hydrofluorocarbon – 23 (HFC-23) or Trifluoromethane, is a by-product produced during the manufacture of Hydrochlorofluorocarbon – 22 (HCFC – 22), a refrigerant gas. HFC-23 is one of the potent greenhouse gases, having Global Warming Potential of 14,800.

The Union Cabinet has given its ex-post facto approval to the negotiating position adopted by the Government of India at the recent Meeting of Parties (MoP) to the Montreal Protocol of the Vienna C
