Ancient crocodiles colonized the seas during warm phases and became extinct during cold phases, according to a new study, demonstrating a link between crocodile evolution and ocean temperature.
The average temperature on Earth has barely risen over the past 16 years, indicating that global warming is currently taking a break - though that doesn't mean it's over yet.
Some parts of the world might have trouble believing it, but the globe has actually just experienced the fourth-hottest July on record, with average temperatures just about 1.15 degrees Fahrenheit hotter than the century average. The global average sea temperature proved even hotter, tying with 2009's July for record warmth.
A new study of past climate data reveals that, despite previous belief, there has been a consistent global warming trend over the last 10,000 years, rather than a period of global cooling before humans intervened.
Trapped atmospheric waves may be the overlooked explanation for the recent weather extremes plaguing the United States recently, according to a new study.
A massive forest fire in Sweden has been raging for 11 days, and has grown into the largest fire the country has seen within the last four decades. This fire is occurring in the wake of the highest temperatures Sweden has ever experienced on record, and experts are quick to point out that this is no coincidence.
Some good may come from climate change after all. Dead zones, the most oxygen deprive portions of our world's oceans, may actually be due for some shrinkage due to changing atmospheric patterns and water temperatures, according to a recently study.
Rapid warming of the Atlantic Ocean, likely caused by global warming, has turbocharged Pacific Equatorial trade winds to a level never-before-seen, according to new research.
A new Stanford study proposes a plan that will have the state of California running entirely on renewable energy by 2050, creating a healthier environment, generating jobs and stabilizing energy prices.
India's wheat production system is becoming increasingly more vulnerable to disaster, as a warmer climate presses in on the world.
A rising temperature is traditionally bad news for farmers, and most crops are very finicky about growing conditions. However, new research has shown that a warming world is actually beneficial for one particular crop commonly used for livestock grazing.
Global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 indicate a "pause" in global warming, but scientists have revealed that this slowdown was actually due to natural cooling fluctuation, and not a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions like some believed.
As if there isn't enough evidence already, the American Meteorological Society (AMS) dropped its two cents in today, releasing data from 2013 that shows that global temperatures are continuing to rise while extreme weather patterns worsen. Do they claim "doomsday?" Not at all, but they do suggest that this data can help support calls for some necessary changes.
Experts suggest that salamanders in North America are shrinking in size because of climate change - where warmer and drier seasons are forcing them to burn more energy on a regular basis.
