 April was Earth’s 400th warmer-than-normal month in a row

Do you remember February 1985? Perhaps you were rocking out to Wham! and Foreigner while teasing your bangs. Or maybe you hadn’t even been born.

  In the Arctic, the Old Ice Is Disappearing

But as the old ice disappears, the newer ice left behind is more vulnerable to rising temperatures.

Climate change: 1.5°C is closer than we imagine 

Global warming of 1.5°C is imminent, likely in just a decade from now. That’s the stunning conclusion to be drawn from a number of recent studies.

 Pakistan has gone from water surplus to water-stressed 

Pakistan is a country facing depleting water resources mainly due to climate change and poor water resource management.

NOAA — Possibility of El Niño by winter ‘nearing 50 percent’

The El Niño weather pattern, associated with warmer and wetter weather than usual that may give rise to damaging conditions, could emerge by the 2018-19 Northern Hemisphere winter.

Cape Town's water disaster averted due to public shaming, police crackdown

A historic three-year drought has forced residents of this coastal city of 4 million to radically change their relationship with water as city restrictions limit each person to using no more than 50 liters, or 13.2 gallons, a day

Atmospheric CO2 levels in April hit highest average ever recorded

Last year, a sensor at Hawaii's Mauna Loa Observatory recorded a CO2 reading above 410 ppm. It was the first time CO2 concentrations had been that high in millions of years. Now, for the first time, CO2 concentration averaged above the 410 mark for an entire month.

 3°C may double Europe’s drought risk

And 400 million people could feel the heat as the water content in the European soils begins to evaporate. The worst droughts will last three to four times longer than they did in the last decades of the last century.

 Simulations suggest poor tropical regions likely to suffer more from global warming

The researchers report that they saw the biggest impacts in places like the Amazon Basin, Southeast Asia, Australia and some parts of Africa.

  The military paid for a study on sea level rise. The results were scary.

 The research also has ramifications for the U.S. military, whose massive Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site sits, in part, on the atoll island of Roi-Namur — a part of the Marshall Islands and the focus of the research.

The Biggest Refugee Camp Braces for Rain: ‘This Is Going to Be a Catastrophe’

Nearly 600,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees live in the camp, at Cox’s Bazar, near the southern tip of Bangladesh. Cyclones, which can occur from March to July, would considerably worsen the situation beyond the dangers of flooding and landslides.

 Hotter, Drier, Hungrier: How Global Warming Punishes the World’s Poorest

According to recent research, the region dried faster in the 20th century than at any time over the last 2,000 years. Four severe droughts have walloped the area in the last two decades, a rapid succession that has pushed millions of the world’s poorest to the edge of survival.

Icy Europe, balmy North Pole: the world upside down

 On Sunday, meanwhile, air temperatures at the North Pole—which won't see the Sun until March—rose above freezing.
"In relative terms, that's a 30 C (54 degrees Fahrenheit) temperature anomaly," Robert Rohde, lead scientist at Berkeley Earth in Washington, tweeted.

It will be warmer at the North Pole next week than much of Europe, as sea ice melts

In the Bering Sea in particular, sea ice has been at record low levels for much of the fall and winter. As if spooked by a ghost, much of the ice that had been covering the region vanished during February, a time when it would normally be at its peak extent and thickness.

Arctic warming: scientists alarmed by 'crazy' temperature rises

The north pole gets no sunlight until March, but an influx of warm air has pushed temperatures in Siberia up by as much as 35C above historical averages this month. Greenland has already experienced 61 hours above freezing in 2018 - more than three times as many hours as in any previous year.

What's Actually Behind Cape Town's Water Crisis

In 2008, Barcelona came close. Sao Paulo, the biggest city in the Western Hemisphere, teeters on the brink. The government of Indonesia has given serious consideration to abandoning chunks of Jakarta, which is paradoxically sinking below sea level, drowning in torrential rains, and running out of potable water.

Climate change 'will create world's biggest refugee crisis'

“If Europe thinks they have a problem with migration today … wait 20 years,” said retired US military corps brigadier general Stephen Cheney. “See what happens when climate change drives people out of Africa – the Sahel [sub-Saharan area] especially – and we’re talking now not just one or two million, but 10 or 20 [million]. They are not going to south Africa, they are going across the Mediterranean.”
