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.
Scott and Julie Brusaw of Sagle, Idaho have made their long-realized idea come to life. They now have a working prototype of their provocative concept "Solar Roadways," a system of modular solar panels that could be paved directly onto roads, parking lots, driveways, and bike paths, and "literally any place under the sun," The Atlantic Cities reported.
A large section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is rapidly falling apart, and its continued melting appears to be "unstoppable," two groups of scientists reported Monday.
Alaska has been subject to increasing evidence of global climate change. According to a recent report from the Unites States Global Change Research Program, Alaska has warmed more than twice as fast as the rest of the US, resulting in shrinking glaciers, thawing permafrost and a disappearing sea ice.
Volcanic eruptions that have been spewing over the last 14 years may be partially responsible for the cooling of planet Earth and slowing down the effects of global warming, a new study published in Nature Geoscience suggests.
Scientists discovered that oyster reefs grow rapidly enough to match sea level rise, and may be able to keep future flooding at bay, according to research published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
The climate change discussion is one that we need to have now, rather than waiting until we feel its repercussions, new research from The Carnegie Institution for Science's Katharine Ricke and Ken Caldeira asserts.
A former NASA scientist described global warming as "nonsense," dismissing the theory that climate change is a man-made problem, a belief held by President Barack Obama, and advocated that it is "absolutely stupid" to blame recent UK floods on human activity, the latest reports indicate.
Greenland is losing ice from part of its territory at an accelerating rate - faster than previously thought - suggesting that the icecap is growing increasingly unstable, according to a study in Nature Climate Change.
A new study confirms that the odds of storm tides overflowing the Manhattan seawall have risen 20-fold from 170 years ago, and the Big Apple should brace for serious flooding in the future.
Biofuels made from corn crop residue can generate more greenhouse gases than gasoline, and are worse for global warming in the short term, according to a study published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change.
Has the weather around the climate change advocates become so cloudy, no one can see a foot ahead? Well, at least, one climate scientist so believes.
The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change met this week to discuss the latest on climate change and issued a report, adding that it should serve as a "wake-up call" to governments and society about the role of humans play in increasing global warming.
Rising levels of carbon dioxide are causing the desert to bloom, according to a new study published in the journal U.S. Geophysical Research Letters.
