Colder cities tend to have higher rates of excessive alcohol consumption and alcohol-attributable liver cirrhosis.
People residing in a place with warm and humid conditions commonly have wider noses, while those that live in cold and dry locations have narrower nose.
A team of scientist has discovered an unexpected behavior in the atmosphere that disrupts one of the Earth’s most regular climate cycles.
Climate change is taking center stage during the Olympics this year, but global warming is making fewer cities suitable to host, leading to an uncertain future for the Olympics.
Researchers are able to find out more on earth's past climate with the help of ice cores. In the National Ice Core Laboratory at Lakewood, extracted ice from the depths of Antarctica and Greenland is sliced up, photographed and tested. The ice is sent to other labs where researchers experiment in them in order to find out details about the earth's past and future.
New climate models developed by scientists provide more evidence that Venus may have once been habitable.
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.
The infamous “hole in the ozone layer” may be on its way to recovery. Climate scientists have detected “the first fingerprints of healing” in the depleted ozone region over Antarctica.
Scientists have discovered carcinogenic man-made pollutants in marine organisms living up to 10,000 metres deep on the world's deepest ocean trenches.
2015 in northwest Greenland, recent studies show the very first evidence linking the melting in Greenland to the expected effects and the confirmation of the phenomenon called the Arctic amplification
Can humans survive this? The last time carbon dioxide was regularly above 400 parts per million was before modern humans walked on Earth.
Economists and scientists warned that the Paris Climate Agreement's goal of keeping temperatures below 1.5-2°C may already be slipping beyond reach, The Guardian reports.
Caught in white outfits in a brown landscape, snowshoe hares are feeling conspicuous to predators in low-snow landscapes caused by El Niño. Black bears are likewise thrown off schedule and using more energy to stay awake.
Insects are ectothermic, which means their internal body temperatures are regulated by surrounding environmental temperatures. Researchers suggest the key to surviving cold winter temperatures for some species is to maintain a balanced salt and water blood concentration.
