The American Meteorological Society has released the annual State of the Climate Report for 2015, which shows that last year marks the hottest year ever recorded with global heat, greenhouse gases and sea levels reaching record numbers.
Tropical cyclones - also known as typhoons - disperse powerful winds that can have a dramatic impact on nutrient cycling of an ecosystem. Island nations in the western Pacific and native plants in this region seem to be hit the hardest by these massive storms.
New models suggest that New York City is at a higher risk of hurricane-related flooding, say researchers Pennsylvania State University who compared records of storm surge levels from before and after climate change.
According to new models, storm surges are expected to increase significantly in areas that aren't usually susceptible to tropical storms. Researchers call these cyclones Gray Swans, and believe that as climate change increase, so does the possibility of these potentially devastating storms.
For the last decade, astronomers have struggled to figure out what was causing the mysterious massive cyclones seen on Saturn. Now, new research has revealed that multiple small thunderstorms are to blame.
Flow Hive, the futuristic beehive that is taking 90 percent of the labor out of beekeeping, and saving honeybees in the process, recently set its sights on saving a new group in danger - the citizens of Vanuatu. The small island nation was recently ravaged by Cyclone Pam, and in 24 hours, the Flow Hive inventors managed to raise nearly $100,000 for rebuilding efforts.
