  • Warming will worsen water scarcity

    By Kieran Cooke

    Already more than a billion people around the world are living in conditions of extreme water shortage. Millions more will face the same fate if greenhouse gas emissions continue to mount.

    LONDON, 14 September - Water scarcity is a fact of life in many parts of the world, particularly in the countries of sub-Saharan Africa. A new study says the situation could get a lot worse, with climate change resulting in less rain and more evaporation in many areas.

  • Arctic Loses Record Amount of Snow & Ice

    The Arctic lost more snow and sea ice between October 2011 and August 2012 than any year other on record, a premier US science agency reported on Wednesday, delivering the fullest picture to date of a region in the throes of rapid, system-wide change.

    The findings, prepared by a team of 140 scientists overseen by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, suggest widespread changes in the Arctic, because of a warming climate. The changes are unlikely to be reversible.

  • Berkeley-based scientist causes ethics storm over climate change documents


    For the past two decades, Peter Gleick has earned a reputation as a nationally known expert on water and climate issues, winning a MacArthur "genius award," penning a long list of scientific articles and testifying before Congress.

    But over the past two days, the 55-year-old Berkeley resident has found himself at the center of a national maelstrom of his own making: using a false name to obtain confidential documents from a pro-industry think tank known for minimizing the risks of global warming.
