Shift from fossil fuels to low-carbon energy would cut consumption growth by only 0.06 percentage points per year, says IPCC chairman. Nuclear power and carbon-capture plants would supplement solar and wind in fight to contain climate change.

More Global Warming
A new map, published this week in Nature Climate Change, assesses the degree to which humans have modified regional landscapes, in addition to how exposed those regions already are to climate change.
Global warming could further lower the likelihood of the atmospheric conditions that last year shoved superstorm Sandy due west into New Jersey, a new study says. But stronger storms will worsen with global warming, the study found, and outweigh changes in steering currents predicted by the study's computer models.
The environmental group 350.org has launched a new campaign called Climate Name Change that proposes a tongue-in-cheek revision to how hurricanes are named.
A 'metastudy' of 60 other studies suggests that there is a clear link between the climate and violence. Global warming raises the specter of more conflict, especially in Africa.
Is the buzz warranted over a new "lake" at the North Pole thanks to global warming? Mostly no. But the Arctic ice is melting.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg laid out a multimillion dollar plan Tuesday to guard New York City against storms and the effects of global warming. Fueled by Superstorm Sandy last fall, the sweeping proposals for New York represent a sizeable step up in scale and urgency for Mayor Bloomberg.
A monitoring station in Hawaii has measured carbon dioxide levels of 400 parts per million, a concentration not seen on Earth since the Pleistocene Era.
An international study used tree rings and pollen to build the first record of global climate change, continent by continent, over 2,000 years.
Two different areas of Antarctica tell two very different stories about how climate change might be affecting ice melt. The data appear to confirm that climate change impacts can be very local.
A new study from Chinese and Canadian researchers links the burning of fossil fuels to China's rise in its daily temperature spikes. China emits more greenhouse gas than the next two biggest carbon polluters – the US and India – combined.
