Sea levels, Carbon dioxide concentrations, and Global temperatures have moved together over the last 450,000 years.
The Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) collects visual evidence of the impact of global warming on our planet, like time lapse photos of the contraction of the glaciers. Continue reading Glaciers in retreat: The Extreme Ice Survey

In Greenland, on the Arctic Circle, longer and warmer summers mean people can grow vegetables and herbs that were unheard of years ago.

Climate change challenges to health
Australians will have to adapt to reduce the risk of health impacts from climate change, according to a report released today by the Australian Academy of Science. Continue reading Adapt now to prevent poor health from climate change

Rapid Arctic warming
The Arctic has warmed about twice as fast as the rest of the Northern Hemisphere in recent decades. Summer Arctic sea ice has declined by 40%, and snow is melting earlier in spring on the surrounding land. This dramatic change in the climate system is expected to affect weather patterns well beyond the confines of the Arctic
The idea that there is a certain amount of carbon dioxide, that we can release by burning more coal, gas and oil, and still keep the global temperature increase to under 2°C is a dangerous illusion. This so called “carbon budget” is based on unrealistic, high-risk, assumptions. Continue reading The myth of burnable carbon
The independent Climate Change Authority has recommended that the Abbott government adopt a 30% reduction target on 2000 levels by 2025.
Australia is the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitter, measured in tonnes per head, and the thirteenth largest measured in tonnes per country.
This shows the countries with the largest carbon emissions
Australia is the 13th largest emitter with 1.3% of emissions. Continue reading Australia should cut emissions much harder
Arctic winter ice hits record low
Polar bears take note. There was less Arctic sea ice this winter (March 2015) than in any year since records began, bringing the scary prospect of an ice-free Arctic a step closer.
