Last remaining glaciers in the Pacific will soon melt away

Ohio State University

The last remaining tropical glaciers between the Himalayas and the Andes will disappear in the next decade – and possibly sooner – due to climate change, a new study has found. The glaciers in Papua, Indonesia, are “the canaries in the coal mine” for other mountaintop glaciers around the world, one of the senior authors of the paper said.

Newswise: Rural decline not driven by water recovery

Rural decline not driven by water recovery

University of Adelaide

New research from the University of Adelaide has shown that climate and economic factors are the main drivers of farmers leaving their properties in the Murray-Darling Basin, not reduced water for irrigation as commonly claimed.

Newswise: Drought impact study shows new issues for plants and carbon dioxide

Drought impact study shows new issues for plants and carbon dioxide

Los Alamos National Laboratory

Extreme drought’s impact on plants will become more dominant under future climate change, as noted in a paper out today in the journal Nature Climate Change. Analysis shows that not only will droughts become more frequent under future climates, but more of those events will be extreme, adding to the reduction of plant production essential to human and animal populations.

Newswise: El Nino Swings More Violently in the Industrial Age, Compelling Evidence Says

El Nino Swings More Violently in the Industrial Age, Compelling Evidence Says

Georgia Institute of Technology

Enough physical evidence spanning millennia has now come together to allow researchers to say definitively that: El Ninos, La Ninas, and the climate phenomenon that drives them have become more extreme in the times of human-induced climate change.

Assessing the Effects of Climate Change on Future Wheat Production

International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis

Wheat is the world’s largest rain-fed crop in terms of harvested area and supplies about 20% of all calories consumed by humans. A new study has found that unless steps are taken to mitigate climate change, up to 60% of current wheat-growing areas worldwide could see simultaneous, severe and prolonged droughts by the end of the century.

Newswise: New Feedback Phenomenon Found to Drive Increasing Drought and Aridity

New Feedback Phenomenon Found to Drive Increasing Drought and Aridity

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

A new Columbia Engineering study indicates that the world will experience more frequent and more extreme drought and aridity than currently experienced in the coming century, exacerbated by both climate change and land-atmosphere processes.
