The Greenland ice sheet melted at a faster rate this month than at any other time in recorded history, with virtually the entire ice sheet showing signs of thaw.
Climate scientists routinely face death threats, hate mail, nuisance lawsuits and political attacks. How much worse can it get?
Seasonal sea-surface temperature (SST) variability during the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA), which corresponds to the height of Viking exploration (800–1200 AD), was estimated using oxygen isotope ratios (δ18O) obtained from high-resolution sam
C lead authors fail to give "due consideration ... to properly documented alternative views" (p. 20), fail to "provide detailed written responses to the most significant review issues identified by the Review Editors" (p. 21), and are not "consi

The planet is hot and getting hotter.
"It's a complex interaction of forces, and the environment has to be conducive," he said. "You need a very special setup to get a derecho -- obviously, that was the case [on June 29]."
Warming temperatures are turning a native Australian shrub into a mini version of itself, revealing the effect climate change is already having on the globe.
It may be warm in parts of the US, but in Peru the government is trying to keep freezing people warm: Peru’s government on Monday sent 18 trucks carrying 97,000 blankets to villages in the Andean highlands, where the populations endure freezing temp
Climate change drove coral reefs to a total ecosystem collapse lasting thousands of years, according to a paper published this week in Science.
Even if nations manage to mitigate carbon emission levels, oceans will continue to rise throughout 21st century
ice core drifts notably from other records of Northern Hemisphere temperatures during the Younger Dryas, a period beginning nearly 13,000 years ago of cooling so abrupt it's believed to be unmatched sinc
This is a pretty incredible observation – that British politicians have no idea how they are going to attain the "goals" they voted for regarding the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Twenty-year-old models which have suggested serious ice loss in the eastern Antarctic have been compared with reality for the first time – and found to be wrong, so much so that it now appears that no ice is being lost at all.
Two months ago, James Lovelock, the godfather of global warming, gave a startling interview to msnbc.com in which he acknowledged he had been unduly “alarmist” about climate change.
The study is the first to give a comprehensive projection for this long perspective, based on observed sea-level rise over the past millennium, as well as on scenarios for future greenhouse-gas emissions.
The Earth's grasslands and savannas are experiencing a major transformation as woody plants, such as trees and shrubs, have begun to dominate arid lands around the globe.
The erratic year-to-year swings in precipitation totals in the Reno-Tahoe area conjures up the word "drought" every couple of years, and this year is no exception. The Nevada State Climate Office at the University of Nevada, Reno, in conjunction wi
The farther they ventured into the ice-covered sea for their NASA-funded project to study ice, the more intense the under-ice algae bloom, says Arrigo, a veteran of many trips to the Arctic and Antarctic. “It was shocking,” he says.
A study published Sunday in the journal "Nature" finds that people who are not that worried about the effects of global warming tend to have a slightly higher level of scientific knowledge than those who are worried.
Now, a new study reveals that the northern treeline in Rocky Mountains was at a much higher altitude from six to nine thousand years ago, which confirms the extra warm climate was not just limited to the Finland/Siberia areas.
Once upon a time, the great King Canute, strolling on a beach with his courtiers, ordered the waves to halt.
A US government-funded survey has found that Americans with higher levels of scientific and mathematical knowledge are more sceptical regarding the dangers of climate change than their more poorly educated fellow citizens.
Endless summer is great and all, but I’ve had this nagging feeling that our charcoal habit is cooking the planet along with my food.
Germany’s solar power plants produced a record 22 gigawatts of energy on Friday, equivalent to the output of 20 nuclear plants.
Global warming alarmist Elizabeth Moon’s call for all babies to be forcibly implanted with a microchip to ensure that “anonymity would be impossible” is yet another startling example of eco-fascism baring its teeth.
In a study published in the journal Nature Geoscience, a team led by Yadu Pokhrel of the University of Tokyo say the answer lies in water that is extracted from underground aquifers, rivers and lakes for human development but is never replenished.
New research that utilized both ground-based measurements and aerial surveys in specific sub-arctic regions in Alaska and Greenland has discovered approximately 150,000 'methane seeps' - a phenomenon where methane gas previously held in the frozen pe
A lightning strike and a house fire that ignited a propane tank are among the immediate causes of the wildfires torching thousands of Arizona acres, media reports say.
The island nation of Kiribati is one of the countries most threatened by rising sea levels. However, many of the floods it has seen may be due to a mix of natural variability and human activities, complicating the picture of how rising sea levels are
