The last time the Earth reached the temperature its has now, the sea levels were six to nine meters higher than it is now.
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.
Crocodilians include a variety of modern and ancient alligators, crocodiles and their relatives. A team of researchers recently examined how the diverse species responded to past climate changes and how they might cope in the future.
Like in the Arctic, Antarctic and even Canada, glaciers in Alaska are melting. Now, new research reveals that like their famous brethren, they may make large contributions to global sea level rise.
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.
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.
