A new study reveales that the record low snowpack levels in the western-most region of the continental U.S. last 2015 were most likely caused by high temperature.
Unlike today, ancient Earth needed more heat because the Sun was 10 to 15 percent dimmer than what it's today. Researchers have refuted a long-held theory that the Earth, billions of years in the past, stayed warm with the help of methane.
Scientists reveal the dark side of man-made water reservoirs, exposing that these dams produce a large amount of greenhouse gases -- particularly methane.
A new study from the Ohio State University have tripled the known types of viruses living in oceans around the world, providing new insights on the role of viruses in marine environment.
California has had a severely dry last few years – and this could be the “new norm” for centuries. This extended drought is linked with the changes in the sea surface temperature of the Pacific Ocean, according to a study led by University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) professor Glen MacDonald.
Brace yourselves to another round of scorching heat as 2016 has the possibility to be the hottest year ever.
The Paris Agreement on climate change may soon kick into action as China ratifies the pact on Saturday, with the U.S., another super pollutor, to follow suit.
Alert! Human-caused climate change started longer than we initially thought. According to a new study, this alarming phenomenon dates back in the 1830s during the industrial era.
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.
A team of scientists has identified two major ways to dramatically minimize the mortality rate from extreme heat exposure.
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has recently revealed that the Earth could experience the hottest summers in 50 years if climate change continues.
There's a new hope for climate change after a team of scientists have found a way to turn harmful carbon dioxide gases to rocks.
Using an advanced infrared camera, researchers have made methane emissions visible. This may help monitor and measure striking levels of greenhouse gases.
Climate change expects boreal forests to shift northward at rate ten times faster than they are able to. Not only do they have to make room for global warming, but they are expected to produce wood for lumber and biofuel uses, house plants and animals, defend against invasive species and store carbon dioxide. With drier and warmer conditions, their ecosystem can't handle it all.
Climatologists didn't see this one coming. It looks like mosses, lichens, and blue-green algae are all major players in the Earth's complex and often-confusing carbon cycle. Now, new research has revealed how these organisms regularly release some of the most intense greenhouse gasses known to man, demanding more attention be pointed their way.
