Scientists have long feared that as the world gets warmer, thawing permafrost may lead to a significant effect on global warming. But now new research suggests that this same Arctic permafrost may actually help us adapt to climate change.
A shocking new study revealed that anesthetic gases, of all things, raise Earth's temperature - well, at least a little.
Just after recent research warned that the world's most iconic ecosystems, including the Great Barrier Reef, may collapse under climate change, a new study is saying that this iconic site can in fact be saved.
Deforestation is driving changes in the climate that threaten to impact global food production, according to a new study.
Passing gas: it's a natural part of bodily function, and not one that's ever associated with doomsday scenarios. However, experts are finding that invasive insects are pumping out more gas than usual, helping facilitate warming in places that otherwise couldn't support them.
Back in 2009, at the United Nations (UN) Framework Convention on Climate Change, nations around the world drew a hypothetical line in the sand, pledging to do everything in their power to prevent the world annual average temperature from warming an additional two degrees Celsius (3.6 °F) - known as the Copenhagen Accord. Now, nearly six years later, experts are saying that even this lofty goal won't be enough to save many nations.
We all remember the terrible earthquake and tsunami that left the Pacific coast of Tōhoku in ruins. Nearly 16,000 people tragically died that day, with an additional 2,500 people never found. Now new research has revealed that people and infrastructure weren't the only things to be harmed that day. Because such a stunning number of buildings were destroyed during the disaster, experts now believe that tons of harmful gases were released into the atmosphere, tearing a worrying hole in the ozone layer above Japan.
Climate change deniers should be punished in the eyes of former Vice President Al Gore, saying Friday that politicians who reject "accepted science" should pay the price for their ignorance.
When you're eating a juicy hamburger, you would hardly think that you are affecting the health of the planet - but according to the federal government, you are. An advisory panel of nutritionists and researchers are advising in a new report that Americans eat less meat in order to save the environment.
Geoengineering, or the large-scale manipulation of the Earth's climate, is not the solution to climate change, according to new research. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix to the global climate problem, and curbing carbon emissions is really our best bet to combat its effects.
It's possible the solution to our world's buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has been sitting on our grocery shelves all along. Baking soda of all things may help to capture carbon dioxide, according to a new breakthrough study.
Current climate change predictions have been confirmed by an ancient warming event that surpasses today's warming world, according to a new study.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is working hard to help scientists better understand and manage the Earth's plant life. On Tuesday, the agency moved to introduce the world to FLEX, a novel approach that could help experts assess the health of vegetation across the globe by measuring their photosynthetic activity from space.
In the face of climate change tropical forests are rapidly declining, but soon they may be getting some help from space, according to new research.
The "End of the World" in the Sleeping Land: that's what people have called the Yamal Peninsula, a relatively desolate region of Siberia, for decades. This region has gained a lot of fame recently as the home of massive and semi-mysterious holes in the ground. Now it will gain some infamy as well, as researchers are finding that more and more harmful methane gas is escaping from the region's thawing permafrost.
