According to new research, drought damage will likely cause widespread forest death by the 2050s as a result of climate change.
We all know that climate change is a current reality - even the US Senate says so - but now the Earth is entering a new era, one during which the climate will likely start to change faster than ever, according to a new analysis.
In the fight against climate change, most experts focus on controlling emissions of carbon dioxide, but methane is actually the more potent greenhouse gas, even more effective at trapping heat in Earth's atmosphere. Now, thanks to a new device, scientists are sniffing out the origins of harmful methane, helping them to better understand its role in warming the planet.
Researchers reported Thursday that natural oscillations in the climate, which resulted in cooler Pacific Ocean waters, were partially behind the controversial global warming "pause."
Scientists have discovered the first direct evidence that rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are heating up the Earth, increasing the harmful greenhouse gas effect and exacerbating climate change, new research finds.
It's no secret that ocean acidification is wreaking havoc on the corals, sea stars, sharks and others that live beneath the waves. But now new research shows that this phenomenon is hitting closer to home and threatening US coastal communities, too.
When you're eating a juicy hamburger, you would hardly think that you are affecting the health of the planet - but according to the federal government, you are. An advisory panel of nutritionists and researchers are advising in a new report that Americans eat less meat in order to save the environment.
As if we didn't have enough to worry about with a depleting ozone and buildup of greenhouse gases, now a recent study shows that there is a new ozone-eating gas on the rise.
New maps created by scientists show just how acidic Earth's oceans are, highlighting the need to deal with the global greenhouse gas problem, according to new research.
Geoengineering, or the large-scale manipulation of the Earth's climate, is not the solution to climate change, according to new research. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix to the global climate problem, and curbing carbon emissions is really our best bet to combat its effects.
With a new design called the bionic leaf, scientists have successfully found a way to turn sunlight into liquid fuel, potentially changing the game of renewable energy, new research shows.
It's possible the solution to our world's buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has been sitting on our grocery shelves all along. Baking soda of all things may help to capture carbon dioxide, according to a new breakthrough study.
Current climate change predictions have been confirmed by an ancient warming event that surpasses today's warming world, according to a new study.
In the face of climate change tropical forests are rapidly declining, but soon they may be getting some help from space, according to new research.
