A new report is ranking America's power plants as some of the worst polluters the world has seen, sullying our air with more carbon emissions that the industries of Russia, India, and Japan combined.
Researchers have long suspected that the 'Year Without Summer' was caused by the combination of two massive volcanic eruptions, whose far-reaching clouds of smoke and soot literally blacked out the Sun. However, only one of these volcanic eruptions was ever found on record... until now.
It has long been known that climate change is impacting the world's ecosystems for better or worse, but a new study details one way that the dog-eat-dog world of nature is changing that a lot of experts didn't see coming. Changing wind patterns are altering how easily predators can find prey, resulting in new situations that many species are just not prepared for.
Certain environmental pollutants are making white worms, which over thousands of years have adapted to the arctic cold, even colder, possibly endangering the species, new research says.
NOAA global climate data has revealed that this past summer was likely the hottest the Earth has experienced in more than 130 years. Interestingly, a great many regions are also reporting at least one record cold temperature during this season, showing just how complicated climate change is.
Researchers have recently crafted a new model of how climate change will impact agricultural production around the world, and they have found that it isn't as simple as "good" or "bad" consequences.
Every year dozens upon dozens of people flock to places like the East Coast countryside to gape at the incredibly vibrant and beautiful color change of foliage that happens each autumn. However, experts are now saying that the leaves will be changing color later and later into the season, with the average leaf-turning process taking a little longer.
Tropical rabbitfish are devastating algal forests in the Mediterranean Sea, and as the climate continues to warm, they can potentially threaten the region's entire ecosystem, according to new research.
For the third year in a row, Antarctica's sea ice is set to smash a new record this month. But while Antarctica's sea ice soars, the Arctic ice cap is still shrinking, making scientists ponder over the effects of global warming, a new report released Tuesday imparts.
A new study shows that the vibrant plumage of peacock doesn't affect the bird's flight.
Recent research has revealed that trees across the world continue to grow significantly faster than they did before the 1960s, but what's the cause? Experts from Technische Universität München (TUM) provide evidence and speculation about this mysterious phenomenon in a recent study.
Conservationists have been struggling to determine how to effectively fight off invasive species in our international ports for some time, but now we may finally see notable improvement thanks to a computational analysis of the most at-risk regions. According to a new study, if we focus on a small number of key ports in particular, invasions can be handily managed.
Fracking has long been demonized as a polluter of groundwater and US drinking water. However, a new study has revealed that while fracking is a small polluter, it may actually be leaking natural gas wells that are the root of the groundwater pollution problem.
Ditching cars for buses, bikes, or good ole fashioned walking in cities can reduce pollution by 40 percent by 2050, according to a new study published Wednesday.
More than a dozen big-name US companies have agreed, in accordance with an Obama administration push announced Tuesday, to cut back on use of a popular coolant that contributes to global warming by emitting a potent greenhouse gas.
