Naegleria fowleri is a brain eating amoeba that earns itself national attention at least once a year after infecting an unsuspecting swimmer during the summer season. Now researchers are saying that with rising global temperatures, the prevalence of these heart-loving microbes could go up.
India's wheat production system is becoming increasingly more vulnerable to disaster, as a warmer climate presses in on the world.
The Oso landslide disaster in March 2014 involved the "remobilization" of a 2006 landslide on the same hillside, a new geological study released Tuesday concluded.
A rising temperature is traditionally bad news for farmers, and most crops are very finicky about growing conditions. However, new research has shown that a warming world is actually beneficial for one particular crop commonly used for livestock grazing.
A new report was just released that details specifically how East Coast parts of North Carolina face significant dangers from rising sea levels. Extreme flood conditions are the main concern - an issue that some Carolinians want to stay in the dark about for fear of what new data will do to their property value.
Wildlife refuges in the Northwest and Hawaii will be "phasing out" a class of pesticides suspected to be causing severe damage to pollinator populations, planning to have the pesticides completely out of these protected areas by the start of 2016.
Antarctic sea ice may not be expanding as fast as previously thought, according to new research. A simple processing error in satellite data could be to blame for this overestimation.
Global temperatures seen in June were the hottest on record, according to a NOAA report, with the global land and ocean surface reaching 33.3 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th century average of 59.9 degrees.
The United Kingdom is sticking to its guns, and will maintain its goal to cut carbon emissions in half of 1990 levels by 2027, Energy Secretary Ed Davey announced Tuesday - a target political opposition says will be difficult to meet.
Researchers have found that the beef industry alone is around 10 times more damaging to the environment that any other meat production, contributing gas emissions, water consumption and land wear.
Global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 indicate a "pause" in global warming, but scientists have revealed that this slowdown was actually due to natural cooling fluctuation, and not a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions like some believed.
Graceful and awe-inspiring sandstone arches seen all over the globe have long been thought to be the products of wind and rain erosion. However, researchers are now suggesting that these factors are simply a means to an end, with gravity and the stone itself being the true sculptors.
The environment can affect our development and the traits we inherit from our parents, according to new research, and using a new, powerful single-cell technique, scientists are just beginning to understand life's impact on our DNA.
Climate-cooling Arctic thermokarst lakes stabilize climate change by soaking up more greenhouse gases than they emit into the atmosphere, according to new research.
