Researchers observe a “warming bias” over the past 66 million years that may return if ice sheets disappear. It is increasingly clear that the prolonged drought conditions, record-breaking heat, sustained wildfires, and frequent, more extreme storms experienced in recent years...
This year’s historic drought in the western United States is threatening California’s almond production. As much as 88 percent of the state is suffering through “extreme drought” conditions, with the most severely impacted area hitting the state’s food-producing Central Valley. Crushed by...
A draft copy of the upcoming Working Group II (WG2) report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), on the impacts of climate change, has been obtained by Agence-France Presse (AFP). The newswire notes that the 4,000-page document...
The world's largest iceberg, around 170 kilometres (105 miles) long and 25 kilometres wide, with an area of 4,320 square kilometres, has broken off from an ice shelf in Antarctica. Earth's average surface temperature has gone up by one degree Celsius...
The Antarctic ice sheet is much less likely to become unstable and cause dramatic sea-level rise in upcoming centuries if the world follows policies that keep global warming below a key 2015 Paris climate agreement target, according to a...
The Brazilian Amazon released nearly 20 percent more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere over the last decade than it absorbed, according to a stunning report that shows humanity can no longer depend on the world's largest tropical forest to...
Glacial melting due to global warming is likely the cause of a shift in the movement of the poles that occurred in the 1990s. The locations of the North and South poles aren't static, unchanging spots on our planet. The...
Ethiopia may produce less specialty coffee and more rather bland tasting varieties in the future. This is the result of a new study by an international team of researchers that looked at the peculiar effects climate change has on...
Many Mario Kart enthusiasts are familiar with the rush of racing down Rainbow Road, barely squeaking around a corner, and catching a power-up from one of the floating square icons on the screen -- or, less ideally, slipping on...
Despite important agricultural advancements to feed the world in the last 60 years, a Cornell-led study shows that global farming productivity is 21% lower than it could have been without climate change. This is the equivalent of losing about...
It is well known that climate-induced sea level rise is a major threat. New research has found that previous ice loss events could have caused sea-level rise at rates of around 3.6 meters per century, offering vital clues as...
