The UN’s climate […]
Research warns of the long timescale of climate change impacts unless urgent action is taken to cut emissions drastically Huge sea-level rises caused by climate change will last far longer than the entire history of human civilisation to date, according to new research, unless the brief window of opportunity of the next few decades is […]
