Soderholm who also followed his friend right after disappearing in the rare whirlwind formation described the experience as "painful."
Excessive stress and diet, and not the cold winter, were responsible for the increase rate of heart attack deaths during the Christmas season.
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.
Scientists have broken the stereotype that winter is an off-season for lake plants, animals, and algae. Freshwater systems around the planet are incredibly active and much more complex, especially in recent times since climate change is warming lakes around the planet.
As winter comes, Earth's climate is getting weirder reports show that North Pole's temperature is getting hotter by a dramatic 36 degrees while Siberia gets extremely cold weather -- all because of climate change.
A new study by an international team of scientists revealed that the warming Arctic caused by climate change may have contributed to the severe cold weather that hit the United States and United Kingdom in 2014 and 2015.
The long magpie season has began early since June and it will be a very long swooping season as these birds guard their nests over residents' heads and eyes.
Two patients working in a facility on the South Pole was rescued in a dangerous rescue mission. The patients need medical treamtment not available on the facility and were flown to Chile.
The consequences of global warming are quite evident this year as winter disappeared early and summer kicked in earlier than usual in a number of countries.
Black squirrels have been seen more regularly in Michigan -- many residents have even mistaken them for rats with bushy tails. Despite their unique color, however, they are still gray squirrels. They seem to occur more often in northern climates, and a project looks at them in the U.K.
Darkness blankets the icy north in the winter, but tiny Arctic marine creatures are guided by the light of the moon. Researchers say the creatures' regular vertical migrations could help store more carbon deep in the ocean.
A combination of satellite data and chemical tests reveal a more accurate picture of where Barn Swallows migrate in the winter.
Insects are ectothermic, which means their internal body temperatures are regulated by surrounding environmental temperatures. Researchers suggest the key to surviving cold winter temperatures for some species is to maintain a balanced salt and water blood concentration.
Scientists have long beleived that three species of Madagascan lemurs were the only primates that hibernate. But new findings suggest that pygmy slow lorises, a relatively small primate that belongs to the so-called wet nosed classification from Southeast Asia, take long wintertime naps, too.
Nature World News recently spoke with Mike Carmon, a meteorologist who studies the very extreme weather atop New Hampshire's Mt. Washington. Scientists in 1932 clocked winds there of 231 mph; researchers have had a wild-and-wooly view of weather there ever since then.
