Reporters from across the Midwest explore the climate risks and the strategies communities are using to adapt. By Dan Gearino. Think of a Minnesota with almost no ice fishing. A Missouri that is as hot and dry as Texas. River and lake communities where catastrophic flooding happens almost every year, rather than every few generations. This, scientists warn, is the future of the Midwest if emissions continue at a high rate, threatening the very core of the region's identity. With extreme heat waves and flooding increasingly making that future feel more real, city leaders have started looking for ways to adapt.

Spring floods, hot summers and warmer winters have been wake-up calls as global warming raises the risks for everything from ice fishing to growing seasons. By Dan Gearino. Think of a Minnesota with almost no ice fishing. A Missouri that is as hot and dry as Texas. River and lake communities where catastrophic flooding happens almost every year, rather than every few generations. This, scientists warn, is the future of the Midwest if emissions continue at a high rate, and it threatens the very core of the region's identity.

By mid-century, troops could face an extra month of extreme heat days if nothing is done to lower greenhouse gas emissions, the Union of Concerned Scientists found. By David Hasemyer. U.S. troops, already sweating through dangerous summer heat at military bases across the country, could face an extra month of life-threatening heat every year by mid-century, on average, as the planet warms, a new report from the Union of Concerned Scientists warns. The military has been struggling with how to develop a sustained, comprehensive strategy for dealing with rising global temperatures, from how to train in sweltering summer conditions at home to its effects in war zones.

Closing arguments in the oil giant’s investor fraud trial presented two competing narratives. By Nicholas Kusnetz. Lawyers for New York State and ExxonMobil wrapped up a landmark climate fraud trial on Thursday, shaping a tangle of testimony and evidence into competing narratives on whether the oil company misled investors about the risks it faces from climate regulation. Jonathan Zweig, who gave the closing arguments for the New York attorney general's office, described the case as a classic securities fraud trial that happened to be about climate change, which he said "may well be the defining risk for oil and gas companies like ExxonMobil in the coming decades.".

Democrats seized control of the Virginia legislature in this week's election, likely smoothing a path toward full participation in a regional carbon-trading market and giving the state a chance to lead the south on climate policy.

Most countries aren’t cutting emissions fast enough, and their pledges for the next 10 years fall far short of what's needed, a new analysis warns. By Georgina Gustin. While nearly all of the world's countries have pledged to cut their greenhouse gas emissions, the reductions they're planning in the short term—over the next 10 years—aren't nearly enough, leading scientists warn in a new report. Nearly two-thirds of the pledges under the Paris climate agreement are "totally insufficient" to meet critical climate targets, the by scientists who have been involved in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) found.

No, the U.S. isn’t out of the Paris climate agreement yet. Here’s what’s happening and what to expect. By Marianne Lavelle. The Trump administration, which from the international community on climate change soon after taking office, filed for divorce on Monday by the United Nations that it was withdrawing from the Paris climate accord. Just as in a real break-up, the step was not surprising, and a long process lies ahead. Here are answers to some questions about what it all means. See Also:

The Trump administration has been scrambling to boost the coal industry ahead of the next election. Expect more rollbacks as the clock ticks. By James Bruggers. The Trump administration on Monday made another attempt to prop up the sagging coal industry by proposing to relax two Obama-era rules meant to curb water pollution from power plants and clean up the ponds utilities use to store toxic coal ash. The moves would make it less expensive for utilities to burn coal to produce electricity at a time when coal mining companies are and coal-fired power plants are closing. See Also:

California has led the world in climate and environment policy. Trump appointees are now trying to erase that progress and shred its reputation. By Marianne Lavelle. As fierce Santa Ana winds whipped the wildfires outside of Los Angeles, stirring exactly the kind of infernos that scientists expect in a hotter, drier California, President Donald Trump was gloating over the new allies he has won in his epic battle to block that state's efforts to fight climate change.

The spill, as much as 383,000 gallons, was reported just hours after a key environmental assessment hearing on plans for another controversial pipeline, Keystone XL. By Phil McKenna. The Keystone Pipeline spilled as much as 383,000 gallons of crude oil into rural wetlands in North Dakota this week before it was shut down, making it one of the largest oil spills in the country in the past decade, state officials confirmed on Thursday. The spill had been reported just hours after an environmental assessment hearing for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, a separate crude oil pipeline being built by the same company—TC Energy, formerly TransCanada.

The former Exxon CEO, once Trump’s secretary of state, defended practices he implemented while running the oil company. He testified at Exxon's investor fraud trial. By Nicholas Kusnetz. Former ExxonMobil chief executive Rex Tillerson took the witness stand Wednesday in the company's climate fraud trial and gave the clearest defense yet for his former employer. Tillerson denied that the oil giant misled investors about the risks it faced from future climate change regulations and described a detailed system he had implemented for managing those risks. But he also repeatedly said he was unable to recall key details and events that are central to the case, omissions that lawyers for New York's attorney general's office returned to again and ag.

As the Arctic struggles with climate extremes, the bowhead migration is two months late. If whales don’t arrive soon, “we’re going to go hungry,” one hunter said. By Sabrina Shankman. In October, as the hours of daylight dwindle and the residents of Utqiagvik prepare for winter, the bowhead whales make their annual migration. Roughly 17,000 whales—some as old as 200 —depart from northern Canada and travel west, along the northern shores of Alaska, before crossing the Chukchi Sea to Russia. It's a migration that has been tracked, year in and year out, both by scientists via aerial surveys and by indigenous hunters, who rely on the whales for food. It's a migration that is normally as consistent as the tide. But not this year. See Also:

The power outages—to avoid sparking fires in the extremely dry, windy conditions—are costing billions as businesses and schools shut down. By Georgina Gustin. With wildfires forcing evacuations in the Los Angeles hills and Sonoma County, and parts of California under an "extreme red flag warning" from the winds, the state's largest electric utility triggered another preemptive blackout on Tuesday that left half a million customers in the dark. Shutting down the power has become PG&E's primary defense to keep its power lines from sparking wildfires in the dry landscape, as happened in 2017 and 2018 to deadly effect. See Also:

Murray, a Trump donor, gave the administration a wish list of regulatory rollbacks to boost his company over cheaper natural gas and renewables. It didn't help. By Dan Gearino. Murray Energy, the U.S. coal company whose CEO's "wish list" was a virtual template for the Trump administration's rollback of federal environmental and climate regulations, filed for bankruptcy protection Tuesday. It's the latest in a wave of bankruptcy filings by coal companies that are struggling to compete in a market where their product—once the lowest-cost fuel for producing electricity—is now more expensive than natural gas and renewable sources.

Notes shared by an Exxon manager in 2014 said the oil giant had incorrectly ‘implied’ to investors that it was using a higher estimate for future climate costs. By Nicholas Kusnetz. New York's investor fraud case against ExxonMobil revolves around a central question: Did the oil giant mislead investors about the company's financial risks connected to climate change? Part of the answer may hinge on notes that Exxon's former greenhouse gas manager emailed to a colleague in 2014. As the trial this week, the New York Attorney General's Office called that former manager, Guy Powell, to the stand to explain. See Also:
