Super Typhoon Surigae rapidly intensifies to a Cat. 5 near Philippines

Super Typhoon Surigae rapidly intensifies to a Cat. 5 near Philippines

Super Typhoon Surigae seen on satellite imagery Saturday morning east of the Philippines. (CIRA/RAMMB)Super Typhoon Surigae surged in intensity from a Category 1 storm on Friday to a beastly Category 5 monster on Saturday, with maximum sustained winds estimated at 190 mph with higher gusts. Why it matters: This storm — known as Typhoon Bising in the Philippines — is just the latest of many tropical cyclones to undergo a process known as rapid intensification, a feat that studies show is becoming more common due to climate change. It weakened slightly, to the equivalent of a strong Category...

U.S. and China agree to cooperate on climate action, but details remain to be negotiated

US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry waves as he arrives at the Elysee Presidential Palace on March 10, 2021 in Paris. Photo: Chesnot/Getty ImagesDespite an increasingly tense relationship, the U.S. and China agreed Saturday to work together to tackle global climate change, including by "raising ambition" for emissions cuts during the 2020s — a key goal of the Biden administration. Why it matters: The released Saturday evening commits the world's two largest emitters of greenhouse gases to work together to keep the most ambitious temperature target contained in the Paris...

Worsening drought in West stokes fears of severe wildfire season ahead

Worsening drought in West stokes fears of severe wildfire season ahead

It's only early April, but parts of the West are already at mid-July levels of dryness — and scientists are warning that the upcoming fire season could be destructive. Why it matters: This summer will mark one year since the West Coast experienced a historic spate of wildfires. The prospect of another severe fire season, along with concerns about water supplies, is raising questions about how to prepare the region for the ravages of climate change. The details: Set against the backdrop of a long-term, human-enhanced drought, the current drought is forecast to expand and across much of the...

April may be the most important month for climate action ever

April may be the most important month for climate action ever

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/AxiosThe next month is the most important period for U.S. climate action in more than a decade, and possibly ever, longtime advocates and observers tell Axios.Why it matters: With scientists issuing more urgent warnings that time is running out to curtail the consequences of global warming, the policy choices proposed through the end of April could reverberate for decades to come. The big picture: The Biden administration is moving quickly on three fronts to regain international credibility on this issue after the Trump White House pulled the country out of the...

The polar vortex is splitting in two, which may lead to weeks of wild winter weather

The polar vortex is splitting in two, which may lead to weeks of wild winter weather

ADA dramatic spike in temperatures is occurring at high altitudes above the North Pole, where the air is thin and typically frigid. Known as a sudden stratospheric warming event, experts say it’s likely to have potentially significant repercussions for winter weather across the Northern Hemisphere for weeks to possibly months.This unusually strong event may have profound influences on the weather in the United States and Europe, possibly increasing the potential for paralyzing snowstorms and punishing blasts of Arctic air, with the odds of the most severe cold outbreaks highest in Northern...

Unusually large and deep ozone hole forms over the North Pole

Unusually large and deep ozone hole forms over the North Pole

There's a new, albeit temporary, ozone hole to pay attention to, and it's a lot closer to the United States than the one that's more widely known, which is over the South Pole. Because of an unusually strong polar vortex in the winter - which helped prevent Arctic air from infiltrating the midlatitudes and contributing to major snowstorms - conditions were ripe in the winter for the destruction of stratospheric ozone high above the Arctic, at altitudes of about 30,000 to 60,000 feet. This has resulted in an area of depleted ozone at the end of the winter season, also referred to as an...
