There are days so scorchingly hot that it seems like a good idea to wrap one’s self in ice. Well, scientists have made the next best thing: plastic clothing to keep you cool and ward off the sweaty armpits for the entire day. A team of researchers from Stanford University found that polyethylene -- known to be the most common plastic in the planet -- is an effective textile material in beating the heat.
As each month of 2016 continues to set world-record temperatures, a top climate scientist from NASA said the warming of the planet is at an "unprecedented" pace, with studies showing no pause in rising temperatures.
The makeup of the Black Sea is one of a kind, but its one that is fading astonishingly fast. Like many natural disasters in recent history, global warming plays its part in the decline.
Many animal species have survived through the years by migrating to places that could serve as their refuge.
California is taking a major step in ending the world's problem on climate change. Last week, the California Assembly and Senate passed Senate Bill 32 and Assembly Bill 197, which would result to a 40 percent cut in the state's greenhouse gas emission once they take into effect.
Climate change is threatening to cut coffee farming lands by 50 percent in 2050 that will also cause 50 percent less coffee production.
Manmade climate change deniers think it’s natural causes like solar radiation, and not human behavior, that’s to blame for global warming — recent studies look into what they’ve been saying.
Global warming is still a fear that will cause mass extinction as a study shows that it destroyed the world 252 million years ago.
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.
Smoke clouds appear to have an impact on climate change. Yet, there isn’t enough data to support this – until now. NASA is sending out an aircraft over Africa to study smoke clouds and its effect on climate change.
The recent activity in Antarctica may seem innocuous, but they can spell disaster. From stunning lakes to expanding cracks, find out how the region is in danger as an effect of the rapidly rising heat.
A new study revealed that the methane emissions from the thawing permafrost is much lower than originally thought.
The Arctic sea ice may vanish in 2017 or the year after according to a scientist.
Researchers have found that rising sea levels could significantly lower water temperatures around coral reefs and help reduce coral bleaching.
