Changing climate around the globe could cause the extinction of up to a third of the world’s parasite species by 2070, report researchers.
A new study outlines some of the effects that climate change will have on northern cities with cold climates, including in Europe and the North America.

The devastation of Harvey in Texas and Louisiana caused nearly 300,000 customers to lose electricity service, and Hurricane Irma has cut service to millions of people. Soon, winter storms will bring wind and snow to much of the country.
Recently experiencing severe weather events such as floods, storms, and drought can make people more inclined to support policies aimed at adapting to the effects of climate change, but not by much and not for long.
