Humanity's current climate dilemma is not the first time Earth has had to battle global warming. Around 300 million years ago, Earth evaded the same problem despite a huge spike in carbon dioxide levels, and geologists are just figuring out how it was done.
A World War II gravesite has been flooded by rising seas levels around the Marshall Islands, washing away the bodies of 26 fallen soldiers. This served as a macabre warning of the threat climate change posses to all small island chains, according to a recent United Nations Report.
Reducing deforestation rates in the tropics could significantly cut the world's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, a new study suggests.
China has declared that it will be making significant cuts to its greenhouse gas emissions, following the United States' pledge to slash carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions namely from coal power plants by 2030.
President Barack Obama unveiled his proposal Monday, one of the strongest actions ever taken by the United States government to fight climate change, aimed to slash carbon dioxide pollution from power plants 30 percent by 2030.
For the first time, carbon dioxide (CO2) levels have reached a record-breaking milestone, its monthly concentrations topping 400 parts per million (ppm) in April throughout the Northern Hemisphere, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reports.
Many Americans still do not think of "climate change" and "global warning" as synonymous phrases, according to a recent analysis of survey results.
Insurance companies are suing Chicago-area municipal governments claiming that warning signs of climate change should have been enough to prompt better preparation for a 2013 deluge that led to significant flooding and damages.
In a sort of paradox fashion, warming tropical waters induced by global warming brought an icy US winter in with the tide, a paper in the journal Science indicates.
Melting ice sheets in Antarctica are changing the Earth's crust, causing warps that trigger new volcanic activity that could cause global sea-levels to rise higher than scientists have previously predicted, according to a recent study.
A group of Evangelical Christians in Florida are trying to convince Governor Rick Scott to create an adaptive plan to address and prepare for the effects of climate change, claiming that they believe they can reach out to him with a common understanding about of Christian values.
A new study finds that as temperatures rise, it will rain more and snow less, causing the total amount of water in rivers to decline.
A newly discovered source of iron from melting ice sheets may help buffer the effects of global warming.
Governor Jerry Brown called California "the epicenter of climate change" on Monday, citing multiple examples of how the state is being severely affected by rising temperatures. The governor expressed his desire that other states work with California to take steps to slow climate change and its potentially adverse effects.
Greenland has more ice vulnerable to climate change than scientists once realized. Researchers have determined that the "shallow" glaciers that edge Greenland's coast actually stretch approximately five dozen miles inland - potentially contributing more to rising sea levels than previously thought.
