Earlier this week, the NOAA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite reached its orbital position, not circling the Earth or Mars but instead orbiting the Sun itself, at a stunning 1 million miles from Earth.
With climate change most associated with warming temperatures, scientists and the public alike tend to focus on the dangers of extreme weather such as heat waves, which is increasingly becoming the new norm. However, new research reveals that simple cold weather is more deadly than extremely hot days.
Exposure to extreme heat could increase four- to six-fold by 2050, due to both a warming climate and a population that's growing especially fast in the hottest regions of the country, according to new research.
Well, not yet, but that is the direction that scientists are headed. "Cloudy for the morning, turning to clear with scorching heat in the afternoon," may soon apply not just to typical late-summer days on Earth, but also to planets located outside our solar system, according to a new study.
It seems that extreme weather including torrential rains and blazing heat is becoming the new norm, and now new research indicates that more than half of hot extremes are caused by climate change.
High elevation environments such as mountains may be warming much faster than previously thought, according to new research.
It's no secret that North America has seen some pretty odd weather recently. No, it's not nearly as disastrous as some excitable folks on Twitter make it out to be, but it is odd enough for the NOAA and meteorological associations to take notice. Now new research has revealed that a natural phenomenon called "The Blob" might be a primary cause behind this weird weather.
Previous research has suggested that climate change brings heat waves and cold snaps along with it, but a new study has come to a different conclusion.
Remember that El Niño that experts were predicting? Well, it's finally here, but the NOAA is warning that might not mean more rain for America's thirsty southwest coast, despite traditional weather patterning.
Remember that mysterious "milky rain" that fell in parts of Washington and Oregon last week? Now a researcher from Washington State University (WSU) is making the claim that it is not volcanic ash caught in rainclouds, as was suspected, but rather the result of a rare event at an ancient lake.
Scientists have re-engineered certain cereal crops so that they can better brace for flooding in world where extreme weather is becoming the new norm.
After a study already suggested that the United States will experience a real-life 'Into the Storm' as climate patterns around the globe change, now new research says the US Southeast in particular will see more tornadoes due to climate change.
A mysterious substance locals are calling "milky rain" was found falling in parts of Washington and Oregon last Friday afternoon and into the night. Experts are now speculating about its origins while simultaneously reassuring locals that it's unlikely a threat to public health.
Smoke caused by land clearing may be linked to stronger, more intense tornadoes, according to a new study.
