Fund's passage hailed as potential turning point that acknowledges the vast inequities of the climate crisis A historic deal to set up a "loss and damage" fund to pay poorer countries harmed by the... impacts of the climate crisis has been agreed to at a UN summit, capping a decades-long fight by climate campaigners and developing nations. The decision marked a breakthrough at the climate negotiations, where for years developing countries have pressed wealthier nations to provide a form of compensation for the droughts, wildfires, floods and other escalating climate impacts they've faced due to the planet-heating emissions that have mostly come from the richest corners of the world.
China is responsible for more cumulative emissions than any country other than the US Late on Thursday night in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, the Cop27 UN climate talks seemed stuck in an... irretrievable logjam. Rich and poor countries had reached deadlock, a "breakdown between north and south", according to the UN secretary general, António Guterres. By Friday morning, the talks had been upended and the battleground dramatically redrawn, in a way it has not been in 30 years of these annual talks. At stake is the question of whether some of the world's leading economies - countries such as China, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf petrostates, Russia and countries with high per capita income such as South Korea and Singapore - should start contributing for the first time to help the...
Global emissions from fossil fuels are likely to reach record highs this year, new data shows, putting nations further off track from stopping global warming.
Scientists say climate change is making over half of all infectious diseases worse, watch to see why.
Report co-written by Nicholas Stern says figure required to switch away from fossil fuels and cope with extreme weather impacts Cop27 live - latest news updates About $2tn (£1.75bn) will be... needed each year by 2030 to help developing countries cut their greenhouse gas emissions and cope with the effects of climate breakdown, new data suggests. The cash will be needed so that poor countries can switch away from fossil fuels, invest in renewable energy and other low-carbon technology, and cope with the impacts of extreme weather, according to a report that was commissioned jointly by the UK and Egyptian governments, and presented at the Cop27 UN climate summit.
Global warming and rising seas are growing worse and more quickly than ever, according to an expert report released Sunday that the chief of the United Nations described as "a chronicle of climate... chaos."
Report at Cop27 shows the world is now deep into the climate emergency, with the 1.5C heating limit 'barely within reach' The past eight years were the eight hottest ever recorded, a new UN report has... found, indicating the world is now deep into the climate crisis. The internationally agreed 1.5C limit for global heating is now "barely within reach", it said. The report, by the UN's World Meteorological Organization (WMO), sets out how record high greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are driving sea level and ice melting to new highs and supercharging extreme weather from Pakistan to Puerto Rico. Carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide are at record levels in the atmosphere as emissions continue. The annual increase in methane, a potent greenhouse gas, was the highest on record. The sea...
As global leaders converge in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, for the UN's annual climate summit, researchers, advocates and the United Nations itself are warning the world is still wildly off-track on its... goal to halt global warming and prevent the worst consequences of the climate crisis.

Marine Conservation Society reports sightings of species normally found in warmer waters Britain's seas are becoming populated with large groups of unusual jellyfish owing to climate breakdown, a... survey by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) has found. In its first marine sightings report, which builds on 20 years of citizen science, the society has found an increased abundance of jellyfish types, including those normally found in warmer climes. Thousands of volunteers take part in the MCS report, telling the conservation group which species of jellyfish and turtles they have seen.

The summer droughts that affected parts of the United States, Europe, and China were made 20 times more likely by climate change, according to a new study by World Weather Attribution. China had its... driest summer in 60 years, while drought conditions in Europe sparked brush fires and dried up rivers. The researchers with World Weather Attribution -- an international organization comprised of scientists who study the connection between climate change and extreme weather -- analyzed weather data, computer simulations, and soil moisture across those areas, and discovered "climate change made dry soil conditions much more likely over the last several months," The Associated Press reports. Researchers say that if not for human-caused climate change, this type of drought would happen across the...
Conservative media may be trying to cause confusion when it comes to how climate change impacts storms, but the science is "overwhelmingly clear."

TV forecasters have been targeted by climate deniers during recent extreme temperatures Discussing the weather has long been a harmless British pastime, with forecasters relied on to ruin bank... holidays with their predictions of drizzle or give good news of some gentle summer sunshine. But now TV meteorologists have found themselves on the frontline of the climate culture war after extreme temperatures hit England last month, with records smashed and highs of 40.3C (104.5F).
The estimate is thought to be on the low side, because climate models are not doing a good job of reproducing how fast temperatures have risen in western Europe
Former Vice President Al Gore compared climate change deniers to the police officers who gathered in the hallway of a school in Uvalde, Texas, and waited as a mass shooting took place.
Readings above 40C expected on Saturday with some cities at highest alert level and warnings of dam failures due to melting glaciers China is set for the return of more heatwaves over the next 10... days, with temperatures set to start spiking in parts of the country on Saturday. Some coastal cities are already on their highest alert level and inland regions warning of dam failure risks because of melting glaciers.

President not expected to declare climate emergency Sign up to receive First Thing - our daily briefing by email Nine Democratic senators have today written Biden a letter urging him to declare a... climate crisis immediately, which they say would give the executive branch extraordinary powers to lower America's carbon emissions. The letter comes ahead of Biden's speech this afternoon where he's expected to announce executive orders to fight climate change, but not declare an emergency. "For too long, we have been waiting for a single piece of legislation, and a single Senate vote, to take bold action on our climate crisis," wrote the group of senators, which includes former presidential contenders Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren. "We urge you to put us on an emergency...
