As climate change warms our world, glaciers in Iceland are melting and causing the land to literally rise up in response, according to a new study.
A recent study of the ancient seafloor has revealed some surprising and worrying facts about our oceans' past. Tens-of-thousands of years ago, our oceans suffered from severe oxygen loss just as massive ice sheets started to melt. Now, with sea ice and glaciers fast retreating in the wake of climate change, experts are worried about another instance of mass deoxygenation.
The world can still enjoy normal living standards while combating climate change and drastically cutting emissions, a new analysis says, but only with sweeping changes to agriculture, transport, food and fuel.
You thought you understood global warming? Think again. New research has shown that the potentially "historic" snowfall that struck the East Coast is but a taste of the intense weather that we could be facing as stronger and stronger La Niñas increase in frequency with climate change.
A new 3D map of Greenland is providing scientists with the first detailed look of its inner layers, helping to shed some light on the ice sheet's past, as well as open a window into its potentially perilous future in the face of climate change.
The Appalachian Trail: you've likely heard of it. After all, each year countless hikers set foot on its paths, while thousands opt to hike the whole thing - all 2,000 miles of it. However, back in 1955, few even knew that this historic trail existed, never mind that it was possible to make it from end to end. That all changed after Emma Gatewood, a 67-year-old grandmother from Ohio, slipped on a simple pair of sneakers, grabbed a modest bag of supplies, and set out on the longest walk of her life.
It's no secret that some of the most vulnerable species from around the world are struggling in the face of climate change. Endangered species and highly specialized ones are losing their habitats and resources to rising seas, melting permafrost, changing flora, and drying lands. However, new research has revealed that some of the world's most adaptable animals are also suffering, with the hearty and common mosquitofish serving as a prime example.
A remote Arctic ice cap, in the face of warming temperatures and climate change, is now flowing 25 times faster into the ocean compared to 2012, a new study shows.
Researchers may have finally helped solve a long-standing question among linguists, finding in a new study that climate is linked to the evolution of human language.
Though it appears a magical, fluorescent blue, Hong Kong's seas are actually sparkling as of late because of farming pollution, underlining a potentially toxic problem behind an otherwise beautiful sight.
A new ecosystem filled with fish and invertebrates has been discovered under the Antarctic ice sheet, new research says, providing scientists new insight into how creatures can survive in such extreme environments.
You've likely heard all about how climate change is impacting our forests, changing how fast they grow, and which species grow fastest. Now, new research has revealed that a warming clime is even impacting forests in California, where a statewide change in tree species and density has been occurring for nearly a century. Still, there is also reason to remain skeptical.
Rising temperatures are causing Greenland's meltwater lakes to drain at a dramatic rate, disappearing in a matter of just a few weeks, according to a new study.
Experts at the University of Central Florida have recently revealed an alarming discovery. Based on observations and projections about rising sea levels, they have concluded that climate change may have an adverse impact on more than 30 years of conservation efforts focused on keeping endangered sea turtles around for another generation.
