Scientists Just Issued a Grim New Warning on Climate Change: ‘We Are Not Prepared’
New research shows that countries around the world are falling short of greenhouse gas goals in the Paris climate deal, and the consequences will likely be unprecedented extreme weather. Published in the journal Science Advances this week, the study found that the likelihood of extreme heat, dryness and precipitation will increase across as much of 90% of North America, Europe and East Asia if countries do not accelerate their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “We are not prepared for today’s climate, let alone for another degree of global warming,” says study author Noah Diffenbaugh, a Stanford...

Paris Will Host the 2024 Olympics. Now, France Has to Ensure They ’re Safe
The timing in Paris early Friday morning could hardly have been more ominous. As the Mayor of Paris and top French officials were on a flight from Lima, Peru, where the International Olympic Committee had awarded them the right to host the Summer Games in 2024, events were unfolding on the ground. As the airplane approached Paris, a man wielding a knife lunged at a soldier in the heart of the city, in the heavily used Chatelet Metro station, while expressing support for ISIS, according to police. The timing was almost certainly unintended, and the attacker arrested before he inflicted any injuries. And yet, the assault se...
