Climate change experts from Princeton and Penn State University are urging policymakers and scientists to become more active in collaborating to better prepare the international community for rising sea levels.
President-elect Donald Trump appeared to have changed his stance on climate change and said he would be keeping an “open mind” about the Paris Agreement.
The year 2015 saw the hottest temperature on record globally but in less than a decade, this may just be another year.

Forests are often depended upon to capture and store carbon emissions. However, a new study shows that current models drastically overestimate their ability to capture carbon.
Researchers from University of Cambridge and University of Colorado say that if active steps are taken by nations to decrease emissions from permafrost thaw in particular, this could reduce predicted emissions cost by $37 trillion. But that's not the case yet.
