Heatwave 2018: Think it's hot here? Record highs leave world baking
Temperature records are being broken in a heatwave "enveloping the
northern hemisphere", says a front-page story in the Times. It
recounts records in Oman, Canada, the US, Iran and the UK, which is
set for the "longest unbroken spell of hot weather since the summer of
1976", according to a second Times article. The front-page story
quotes a Yale University scientist explaining that extreme weather
events such as heatwaves and wildfires are becoming more common as the
world warms: "We know that these kinds of events are very consistent
with what we expect to be happening with climate change." [The story
concludes by saying: "Meteorologists attribute the northern hemisphere
heatwave to#El Niño." This is not accurate, as Carbon Brief's climate
analyst Zeke Hausfather explained on Twitter.] A Mail Online story is
headlined: "Global warming to blame for all-time heat records being
set worldwide". The article adds: "While an isolated heatwave can be
put down as an anomaly, the scale of this phenomenon points to global
warming as the culprit, scientists said." In the New York Times, an
article explores the "unfamiliar words for unfamiliar times",
referring to the "UK heatwave" and "Irish drought". It explains:
"Climatologists say that it is hard to connect any single weather
event to climate change, but that heat waves and extreme swings in
precipitation are expected effects. As Britain and Ireland have
sweltered, heat waves have also struck Scandinavia, the northeastern
United States and southeastern Canada, the Caucasus and southern
Russia, and other regions." The Independent also covers the UK
heatwave, quoting WWF's Mike Barrett saying: "Climate change can make
extreme events such as heatwaves more likely". Two stories from
Reuters cover the US and Canadian heatwaves. Last year, Carbon Brief
published a review finding that 85% of studies looking at links
between heatwaves and climate change found the events had been made
more likely or more severe because of global warming.

UK judge postpones decision on landmark climate case
A legal challenge hoping to strengthen UK climate targets has been put
on hold after the High Court postponed a decision on proceeding to a
full trial, Climate Home News reports. The case, brought by legal
group Plan B, aims to force the UK to raise its ambition in light of
the Paris Agreement. The UK govt has pledged to ask for a review
of the targets in light of the latest climate science, after the
Intergovtal Panel on Climate Change publishes a report on 1.5C
later this year, as Carbon Brief reported in April.

CH4 mitigation potentials from China landfills and related
environmental co-benefits
A new study estimates the likely methane emissions from around 2,000
existing landfill sites in China and 500 planned new
ones. Approximately 0.66m and 1.14m tonnes of methane will be
released, respectively, from new and existing landfills under a 2030
business-as-usual scenario, the researchers say. This is 24% lower
than estimates by the US Environmental Protection Agency, the study
notes. -- Science Advances
