Combating climate change may be as simple as changing our diets, according to a new study.
A volcanic supereruption at Yellowstone National Park, while unlikely, is possible within the next few centuries. And though it may sound bad, the aftermath would not be catastrophic, according to a new study.
The global sea level is rising, and waters around Antarctica are rising even faster. That is, according to a recent study that has found that Antarctic ice melt is causing coastal waters of the White Continent to rise at an unprecedented rate.
Farmers and private land owners are getting pretty nervous about maps recently released to the public by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Critics of the Clean Water Act are concerned that the EPA will use the existence of intermittent waterways to expand its influence and control across states. EPA officials flatly deny this, saying that the public is being misled.
Researchers believe they have successfully mapped every known species that lives the Antarctic ocean, creating an atlas that they hope will make the effects of climate change in the region easier to track.
Researchers claim they have discovered a surprising amount of harmful ozone in the supposedly "fresh" air of the Colorado mountains, showing just how far urban pollutants can travel.
A major volcanic eruption has occurred in Papua New Guinea, prompting officials to evacuate some residents and establish a no-fly-zone over the affection region.
Iceland's Barðarbunga volcano really can't make up its mind on whether or not it wants to show off. The Icelandic volcano officially began to erupt last midnight, prompting officials to declare a no-fly-zone over the volcano.

It has been estimated that more than 15 million miles of road will be build by 2050, and this construction may inflict lasting, if not permanent, harm to global ecosystems. Now experts have drawn up a "global roadmap" showing planners where and how new roads should be built to avoid the worst of this damage.
Many conservationists will always say that there is no such thing as "enough" species protection. However, new research has revealed just how the current level of marine life protection isn't even adequate enough to allow threatened ecosystems to recover.
Hurricane Marie has finally begun to spin down, weakening from hurricane status to a tropical storm this Thursday morning. Interestingly, NASA and NOAA satellites show that Marie is a fighter, still producing new rising air and thunderstorms to keep it spinning.
Thousands of fishing traps are lost or abandoned each year in the United States, and this type of "ghost fishing" is posing a real problem for marine life, according to a new NOAA-led study.
Don't toss out your shovels and snow-blowers just yet, researchers say. Global warming may bring milder winters, but blizzards are still very much in our future, a new study suggests.
The NOAA has officially recognized 20 different types of coral as threatened species, enabling new action to be taken to ensure the preservation of their dwindling habitats in the wake of climate change and human influence.
In the middle of Death Valley, there is an incredibly dry lakebed called Racetrack Playa, and it is there that one of the strangest natural phenomena occurs. According to locals and experts alike, in the dead of night, the hundred-pound stones that can be found scattered about the ground mysteriously shift hundreds of feet.
