Recently, researchers have pointed out that Antarctica's melting hasn't been as intense as many climate change experts had feared. However, new research has revealed that this is all about to change, with new data hinting that the White Continent's surface will double its current melt rate by 2050.
A new study has revealed that more and more specialized flowering plants may wind up missing out on pollinators as the spring season grows warmer for many parts of the world. As net temperatures continue to climb, researchers have found that bees are waking from their wintering earlier, disrupting a synchronized bloom that some flowers had painstakingly adapted for.
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.
As if there isn't enough evidence already, the American Meteorological Society (AMS) dropped its two cents in today, releasing data from 2013 that shows that global temperatures are continuing to rise while extreme weather patterns worsen. Do they claim "doomsday?" Not at all, but they do suggest that this data can help support calls for some necessary changes.
Ecologists have long worried that as climate change continues to affect the seasons, trees might "leaf out" too early, only to be struck by late-season frosts. Some trees, however, are too clever for such a simple trick, somehow knowing to wait it out despite spurts of warm weather.
A World War II gravesite has been flooded by rising seas levels around the Marshall Islands, washing away the bodies of 26 fallen soldiers. This served as a macabre warning of the threat climate change posses to all small island chains, according to a recent United Nations Report.
Insurance companies are suing Chicago-area municipal governments claiming that warning signs of climate change should have been enough to prompt better preparation for a 2013 deluge that led to significant flooding and damages.
Melting ice sheets in Antarctica are changing the Earth's crust, causing warps that trigger new volcanic activity that could cause global sea-levels to rise higher than scientists have previously predicted, according to a recent study.
A group of Evangelical Christians in Florida are trying to convince Governor Rick Scott to create an adaptive plan to address and prepare for the effects of climate change, claiming that they believe they can reach out to him with a common understanding about of Christian values.
Researchers have found evidence that ash from forest fires in the Northern Hemisphere is finding its way into snow-build across Greenland, causing vulnerability and melt of the Greenland ice sheet - which scientists once thought was caused by global climate change alone.
Alaska has been subject to increasing evidence of global climate change. According to a recent report from the Unites States Global Change Research Program, Alaska has warmed more than twice as fast as the rest of the US, resulting in shrinking glaciers, thawing permafrost and a disappearing sea ice.
Researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the University of Michigan are reporting the first hard evidence that malaria creeps to higher elevations during warmer years and falls back down to lower altitudes when temperatures cool.
