The models have typically predicted that will not happen for decades but the measurements that are coming in tell us it is already happening so once again we are decades ahead of schedule."
Geo-engineers are considering projects on an enormous scale that might one day be used to manipulate levels of atmospheric aerosols and influence cloud formation in order to cool our planet.
Researchers produced the 1,800 year climate record by analyzing levels of unsaturated fats in algae buried in the sediments of Kongressvatnet lake, in western Svalbard.
The researchers used computer modeling to study more than 600 species of fish from oceans around the world and found that the maximum body weight they can reach could decline by 14-20 per cent between years 2000 and 2050, with the tropics being one of the most impacted regions.
Trees Face Rising Drought Stress and Mortality as Climate Warms.
Economic impact of global warming is costing the world more than $1.2 trillion a year, wiping 1.6% annually from global GDP.
When we wipe out the most sensitive species, human beings reduce the resilience of ecosystems to climate change.
Risk of coral bleaching increases with higher water temperatures.
The researchers conclude that some critical ocean habitats could undergo significant changes in location, moving more than 600 miles from where they are now.
The study suggests there is a significant stratospheric impact on the ocean.
Experts warned of a "planetary emergency" due to the unforeseen global consequences of Arctic ice melt, including methane gas released from permafrost regions currently under ice.
It saves 40 percent of water used in conventional farming and uses non-conventional energy sources.
Climate change has moved from the realm of abstract debate to a business reality in much of the world.
The ice covering the search area for the two lost ships of Sir John Franklin's doomed Arctic expedition suddenly disappeared more than three weeks ago, eliminating any ice-related issues that might have hampered technologies deployed in the search.
The unprecedented loss of polar sea ice may lead to 'wild extremes' in the UK and northern Europe, say researchers
This study is the first comprehensive global survey of coral bleaching to express results in terms of global mean temperature change.
