Sorry Bay Area residents. Gathering around the fireplace after a traditional turkey dinner may have sounded like a good idea, but the California Air District regulators won't be having it. A Winter Spare the Air Alert is in effect for this Thursday, meaning that it will be illegal to burn wood.
Researchers took a closer look at the effects ocean acidification has on coral, and have found some compelling evidence of its dangers. Worse still, they even found that acidification may encourage coral erosion, a stunning observation that suggests coral are fighting a war against acidification on two fronts.
A satellite dubbed the "Ferrari of space" is giving ocean current maps a boost. By providing the most accurate model of ocean circulation yet, the technology can help scientists better understand Earth's oceans and their role in global warming, according to recent research.
With the threat neonicotinoid use poses to honeybees gaining international attention, researchers are now focused on finding other factors that are contributing to a worrying decline in bees across the globe. Climate change, they say, is certainly to blame, and parasites may be one reason why.
Lava can't stop Turkey Day! Officials have declared that the Pahoa village road in Hawaii will soon be open once more, clearing the way for Thanksgiving travelers as they drive right by a now-becalmed lava flow.

This guy is far more than your average tree hugger. Peruvian actor, artist, and environmental activist Richard Torres just married a tree for the third time in his life. It was, no doubt, a sappy occasion.
Sixty years ago the cropland that once dominated the South Carolina longleaf pine woodlands was finally left untilled. Now, the woodlands appear to have recovered to their former glory, showing little evidence that they were once ever wide and empty fields. However, while it may not be obvious, local plant and animal life seems to still know what happened to their home not too long ago.
In a triage of new studies, scientists describe the steps that need to be taken in order to keep precious ecosystems afloat while submerged in a "sea of tipping points."
Antarctic ice is thicker than scientists previously thought, according to a new kind of robotic survey of the underside of sea ice floes.
Mirroring the sentiments of countless climatologists and past studies, the World Bank has released a new report that details how increasing "extreme weather" is unavoidable in the wake of climate change. According to the report, this extreme weather will still increase in prevalence despite international efforts to mitigate the causes of this change.
Small volcanic eruptions over the years may actually helped slow climate change. That's at least according to a new study which details how minor eruptions between 200 and 2013 may have directly cooled the average global temperature.
Winter is rearing its ugly head, and soon your backyard may be covered in thick sheets of snow (if it isn't already). Now is the time to break out the rakes and bag up those autumn leaves. However, if you're not particularly into yard work, we've got a fantastic reason for you to shirk the raking: leaving leaves where they fall can actually be a boon to wintering wildlife and your garden!
Extreme weather plaguing the Arctic town of Longyearbyen is causing problems for the region's reindeer, as well as its people, according to new a new study.
