You’ve probably seen a lot of climate change jargon in the news lately — words like “mitigation”, “carbon neutral” and “sustainable development”. To free you from confusion, here’s a helpful explainer from science communicators and researchers.

It’s not just your imagination … the world is actually getting wetter. That’s because as temperatures rise, the atmosphere can hold — and release — more water. A look at the science behind heavy rains and how you can safeguard yourself from floods.

From solar panels to electric vehicles, all sorts of exciting technologies are being used to address the climate crisis. But some solutions already exist in the natural world. Seaweed — yes, seaweed — could help us absorb carbon emissions, generate marine protein and replace petroleum-based products.

If we don’t act on climate change, we’re looking at a future with more refugee camps, malnutrition, diarrheal disease and asthma. Here’s why cutting out fossil fuels isn’t just good for the planet — it’s critical for our health, says global health expert Jonathan Patz MD MPH.

Intense heat, high winds and heavy floods are wreaking havoc on buildings and bridges, which weren’t constructed with the climate crisis in mind. Here are some of the potentially disastrous impacts — and what we must do to adapt.

From biodiversity loss to extreme weather, explore the impacts and answers to climate change through the eyes and voices of filmmakers, activists, scientists and communities around the world by watching one of these films or series.

Humans are visual creatures: our understanding of the world is dominated by what we see, and how this makes us feel. That’s why Climate Visuals — the world’s only evidence-based climate photography resource — compiled seven key principles to help photographers and organizations effectively communicate the scale and scope of the climate crisis.
