For the first time ever, scientists have witnessed polar bears eating white-beaked dolphins in the Arctic, and they claim it's the bizarre result of climate change.
With climate change already impacting various parts of the world, scientists have started looking into Earth's past in order to better predict how it will affect our future. To add to growing evidence, a new study has found that ice sheet collapse 135 million years ago triggered events of strong global climate change.
Just yesterday, Nature World News reported on Greenland's mysteriously vanishing lakes, which can drain entirely in just a matter of a few hours. But now, a subsequent study is saying that while warming temperatures have created more of these supraglacial lakes, they are not likely to worsen Greenland's contribution to sea level rise.
Greenland's many supraglacial lakes have been seen suddenly and mysteriously draining as climate change causes this region to warm, and now scientists have finally explained the mechanism behind this phenomenon.
It's no secret that Greenland's glaciers are melting in the face of warming temperatures, but a new analysis aims to show just how their ebb and flow will impact sea level rise in the future.
Mount Everest's glaciers may disappear almost entirely by the year 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, a new study warns.
While it's no secret that much of the Antarctic Peninsula is rapidly melting, scientists were disappointed when they recently found that a previously stable region of Antarctica is experiencing rapid ice loss - so much so that it is even affecting Earth's gravity field.
With climate change heating things up, and the Earth's poles rapidly melting, it should come as no surprise that a major Antarctic ice shelf may completely disappear by 2020, according to a new NASA study.
One of Antarctica's largest ice shelves is thinning from above and below, helping scientists finally understand just what exactly is causing this rapid ice melt, according to new research.
It seems that every day scientists are telling us how climate change is causing the Antarctic ice sheet to melt, threatening to raise sea levels and drive the region's iconic penguins into extinction. And now, it appears that Antarctica, which was already rapidly disappearing, is melting faster than ever before.
As a result of climate change and warming temperatures, glaciers in Western Canada are to shrink a staggering 70 percent by 2100, according to new research.
For anyone even halfway familiar with climate change, they are probably growing tired of hearing it - but all the same, it should be said: Antarctica's exceptionally important ice shelves are crumbling away at increasingly worrying rates, and we have climate change to blame.
The Gulf Stream system, one of Earth's most important heat transport systems, is slower than ever before, and researchers warn that it may result in drastic climate impacts, according to a new study.
Scientists have discovered two seafloor gateways that are hastily melting East Antarctica's largest and most rapidly thinning glacier, threatening to raise global sea levels.
