Changing ocean temperatures and currents will force thousands of species to migrate polewards, including cod, herring, plaice and prawns.

Recent research has suggested that climate change may have been the killer blow that finished off our closest evolutionary cousins. For about 400,000 years, the Neanderthals dominated Europe, hunting big game such as mammoth and bison. These hardy cavemen and cavewomen survived one Ice Age after another. But eventually, their luck ran out. For reasons which remain unclear, Neanderthal populations went into terminal decline.

A team of polar explorers has travelled to the Arctic in a bid to discover how quickly the ice cap is melting and how long it be before the Arctic summer becomes ice free.

... global warming. 30. August 2005 ... Good. Just some ideas.. We should not forget that articles like this create good feeling, because they say what we want to hear. The author also makes money on this - by writing books on the topic etc. The first part of the article is like brainwashing - shocking images and their attachment to "global warming". No good.. this is misleading -- one could do a similar list of catastrophes or unusual...

Global climate change is "very likely" to have a human cause, an influential group of scientists has concluded. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said temperatures were probably going to increase by 1.8-4C by the end of the century.

Climate change stands alongside the use of nuclear weapons as one of the greatest threats posed to the future of the world, the Cambridge cosmologist Stephen Hawking has said.

The downfall of the one of the greatest Chinese dynasties may have been catalysed by severe changes in climate. The same climate changes may have simultaneously led to the end of the Maya civilisation.

Meet the world's top destroyer of the environment. It is not the car, or the plane,or even George Bush: it is the cow. A United Nations report has identified the world's rapidly growing herds of cattle as the greatest threat to the climate, forests and wildlife. And they are blamed for a host of other environmental crimes, from acid rain to the introduction of alien species, from producing deserts to creating dead zones in the...

Greenland's ice is melting rapidly. In some places, glacial levels have been falling by 10 metres a year and ultimately contributing to rising sea levels.

Scientists have reported worrying signs that the vast ice sheet over Greenland is melting. If the whole mass of ice disappeared, the world's sea level would rise by about six metres.

Greenland's ice sheet could disappear within the next 1,000 years if global warming continues at its present rate.

After a long gap, scientists in Nepal have embarked on the first field studies of Himalayan glacial lakes, some of which are feared to be swelling dangerously due to global warming.

A fleet of sail-powered, ocean-going vessels spraying sea water in the air could save billions of dollars and allow the world to continue emitting carbon dioxide like it does by burning oil and coal. Marine cloud whitening, which allows solar radiation to bounce off water vapor, at $9 billion would be more cost- effective than reducing CO2 emissions.

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.
