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.
New research indicates that extreme climate swings - lasting tens of millions of years - were too much for the dinos and kept them out of the tropics, solving one of science's longstanding mysteries.
Climate change and habitat loss are two major threats posed to animal species worldwide. And especially with global temperatures rising in recent decades (2014 was the hottest year yet), scientists are now concerned more than ever with the survival of Earth's animals. However, recent research suggests that they are more flexible than you think.
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.
China's greenhouse gas emissions may peak by the year 2025, according to a new report from the London School of Economics (LSE), easing scientists' fears of its contribution to climate change.
Joshua trees, a beloved and iconic desert species in California, is currently in decline due to drought and climate change.
The infamous global warming hiatus, which has puzzled scientists and been hailed by climate change skeptics, may have never really happened, according to a new, updated NOAA analysis.
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.
Muir Woods is known for having some of the oldest, tallest trees on Earth, but a new analysis shows that California's tallest tree is actually younger than previously thought.
During the last Ice Age, massive slabs of ice covered much of North America, but new research now shows that calving icebergs resulted in a huge influx of freshwater that increased the production of the greenhouse gas, methane, in tropical wetlands.
Although the Cretaceous, 145 to 66 million years ago, was a period known for its extreme greenhouse climate, a new study shows that this ancient warming was interrupted with a significant cold snap.
Prehistoric climate changes that took place thousands of years ago are apparently hidden inside Indian cave deposits (not pictured), and may hold clues to better predicting future climate in the region, according to new research.
