While scientists can’t yet find a clear signal between global warming and killer tropical storms like Haiyan, the supertyphoon could well be a sign of what’s to come in a warmer world
Greenhouse gas emissions have been rising, but warming has plateaued in recent years. It turns out the heat is likely being absorbed by the ocean depths.
As northern Europe recovers from a major Atlantic storm, a new report suggests more extreme weather could be the norm.

A new study names the global cities most at risk at coastal flooding—both today, and in a warmer future.
Cities like Shanghai and Seoul are enduring a brutal heat wave. But climate change will make this year’s summer feel like nothing in the decades to come
The South Pole has been the stable one in the climate change era—relatively speaking. But a pair of studies about Antarctica’s past and its present point towards a very different future.
