The last time the Earth reached the temperature its has now, the sea levels were six to nine meters higher than it is now.
Prince Charles has teamed up with environmental campaigners Tony Juniper and Emily Shuckburgh to create peer-reviewed book about climate change.
Gases like methane break down relatively quickly in the atmosphere, but it turns out their negative effects can linger for hundreds of years.
Global warming has been affecting different members of the environment, including shellfish. A new study has revealed that the warming waters could trigger the rise of toxins in shellfish, which is a health hazard for humans.
New data supports controversial NOAA study that said the climate change slowdown doesn't exist.
The year 2016 has been recorded as the hottest year in human history, but recent forecasts show that 2017 may be much cooler.
A new study from the University of Southampton revealed that Arctic lakes, which is usually frozen and covered with ice during winter months, is melting earlier each passing spring.
On Friday, scientists at institutions in Australia and the United States had published a set of unprecedented ocean observations about the largest glacier in the one of the largest ice sheet in the world, the Totten glacier in East Antarctica. Their findings reveal one of the world’s greatest fears -- Totten is melting from below.
Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have identified another way to help reduce rising global temperatures, by injecting light-reflecting particles in a process called solar geoengineering.
A new research headed by Zhiyong Wang from the Carnegie Institution for Science, a private nonprofit organization dedicated to ground-breaking scientific research, has discovered the specific system plants use to regulate their various response to heat between daytime and nighttime.
NASA has released new realistic 3-D simulations of how carbon dioxide moves around the Earth’s atmosphere. The visualization will help scientists tackle the rise of CO2 emissions.
NASA and USGS are using a real-time ice sheet viewing process in order to study the factors that influence the movement of glaciers and ice sheets towards the sea.
Are our climate change efforts changing anything? The rising concentration of methane in the atmosphere, now increasing at a faster rate than any period in the last 20 years, is becoming a great threat to the environment – and a much more difficult problem to solve.
This Christmas, Santa might find it hard to maneuver his sleigh as a new study from the British Ecological Society (BES) has revealed that reindeer are getting smaller and hungrier -- all because of climate change in the North Pole.
