For the first time, average global carbon dioxide (CO2) levels have broken the monthly record, surpassing 400 parts per million (ppm) in March 2015, according to a new NOAA analysis.
Massive floods in the Mississippi River valley may have wiped out an ancient civilization, according to a new study.
Fjords, such as those in Norway, don't just make for beautiful landscapes but also act as major carbon sinks that likely play an important role in regulating the planet's climate, a new study says.
Overfishing, pollution, habitat loss and climate change are all factors that are threatening marine life. But new research has determined that human influence the most threatening to tropical marine ecosystems.
With heatwaves in Europe expected to be 10 times as likely due to climate change, it should come as no surprise that England in particular will soon see record-breaking warm years.
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.
No, I'm not talking about 200 years from present day. But new research has shown evidence of a 200-year lag between climate events in Greenland and Antarctica during the last ice age, and it could possibly help shed light on the consequences of climate change in the future.
It seems that extreme weather including torrential rains and blazing heat is becoming the new norm, and now new research indicates that more than half of hot extremes are caused by climate change.
It is well known that tropical deforestation is just as costly as carbon pollution when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. But while research has mostly focused on forests that have been completely mowed down, scientists are now saying that partially logged forests play just as crucial a role, and may emit more carbon than previously thought.
It's no secret that our warming climate is causing ice everywhere to melt, but now new research shows that this thaw may release a massive storehouse of carbon in long-frozen Arctic soils.
A fleet of icebergs is probably not to blame for abrupt episodes of cooling in the North Atlantic over the past 440,000 years, according to new research.
Global warming is progressing slower than we thought, at least compared to the most severe emissions scenarios outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), according to a new study.
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.
As climate change melts Arctic sea ice and forces polar bears onto steady shores, it seems that they will have to adapt to a new diet. However, it is highly unlikely that these animals will be able to survive strictly on land-based foods, according to a new study.
