The frequency of large-scale tornado outbreaks, or sequences of tornadoes that occur in close succession, have been increasing in the United States.
Human-induced climate change has doubled the area affected by forest fires over the last 30 years.
A team of scientist has discovered an unexpected behavior in the atmosphere that disrupts one of the Earth’s most regular climate cycles.
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.
Super Typhoon Nepartak is no anomaly. Rising oceanic temperatures are intensifying major currents, which will result in hotter and stormier weather over the next one hundred years.
A new study predicts that the number of "hot days" in New York City will triple, causing thousands of heat-related deaths annually by the year 2080.
Coast redwoods will be shifted northward into southern Oregon, if temperatures continue to warm and current rainfall amounts remain constant. This will be a significant habitat change, compared to that which they have experienced for the last several decades.
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.
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.
