That said, dumping fresh water into the ocean in massive amounts is a suspect in a variety of historical climate changes, such as the Younger Dryas event — between 11,500 and 12,800 years ago — that is blamed for the decline of the Clovis Culture in
... By “leverage and focus” of university students and facility, definitions on how to control future conflicts regarding resources in key regions of the world would give the DoD the influence they need with regard to climate change. The DoD gave
The report also identifies current activities addressing these challenges, and discusses opportunities that exist to increase the resiliency of the energy sector.
Trees are becoming more efficient at using water in response to higher atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, according to new research published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
Researchers say the Las Conchas fire findings underscore the need to include a realistic representation of carbonaceous aerosols in current climate models, suggesting that fire emissions may contribute more to climate warming than is shown by current
d here is what federal weather officials call a “spring paradox”: The U.S. had both an unusually large area of snow cover in March and April and a near-record low area of snow cover in May. The entire Northern Hemisphere had record snow coverage area
While it's debatable whether Oz's Emerald City meets the criteria for being an amazing "green" city, many real cities around the world make the grade on lists compiled annually by experts.
Floods were the most frequent event, and are likely to continue to increase in frequency as sea levels rise thanks to the melting sea ice.
A Media Matters analysis shows just 4 percent of recent TV reports and 9 percent of print articles mentioned climate change when reporting on wildfires.
"Permafrost soils are warming even faster than Arctic air temperatures - as much as 1.5 to 2.5 degrees Celsius in just the past 30 years," says Miller. "As heat from Earth's surface penetrates into permafrost, it threatens to mobilize these organ
A new paper published in the International Journal of Climatology finds 40-79% of the variation in western Arctic sea ice extent is due to natural atmospheric circulation patterns such as the Arctic Dipole (AD), Arctic Oscillation (AO), and Pacific-N
This makes for scary graphs showing disappearing Arctic ice, which are highly misleading. The 1990 IPCC report had satellite data going back much earlier than 1979, which showed that Arctic peaked in that year, and was much lower in 1974.
The U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center has said the Arctic sea ice shrank to 3.41 million square kilometers on Sept. 16, 2012, the smallest since satellite monitoring began in 1979. Yamaguchi and colleagues predict the area will be 160,000 square
At a speech at Georgetown University, he laid out the basics for how the country will combat climate change--whether or not Congress helps.
Climate change predictions paint a bleak picture for much of the world's flora and fauna:
Arctic-permafrost holds more carbon than all fossil-fuel emissions since record-keeping began in 1850. NASA's Carbon in Arctic Reservoir's Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE) monitors melting which could expose carbon, accelerating global warming.
For only "pennies a day," any greenhouse owner can produce CO2 to help increase plant yields in their greenhouses.
Global temperatures in the 20th century averaged 58.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
Storm surges from rising sea levels are important predicted consequences of global climate change and have the potential for severe effects on the vegetation of low-lying coastal areas.
In Alaska, houses are built to keep warm air in and cold air out, not the other way around.
Overfishing, climate change, acidification - our oceans are in peril. But there's hope. Let's start a Blue Revolution!
A new study from UCLA reveals snowfall in the Los Angeles-area mountains will be 30 to 40 percent lower by mid-century than it was at the end of the 20th century.
#1 - NO, I do not support the coal and oil industry, and in fact I think they are terrible polluters of our planet for lots of reasons that have nothing to do with CO2. As it turns out, all the coal and oil being burned across our world right now onl
When the UN climate talks opened in Bonn last week, Russia, joined by Ukraine and Belarus, blocked adoption of the agenda of the “Subsidiary Body for Implementation” (SBI). The SBI is the key negotiating track towards signing a UN climate treaty in P
The sea ice cover is one of the key components of the climate system. It has been a focus of attention in recent years, largely because of a strong decrease in the Arctic sea ice cover and modeling results that indicate that global warming could be a
33,000 square miles (85,500 square kilometers) or 2.8 percent of the Amazon rainforest burned between 1999-2010 finds new NASA-led research that measured the extent of fires that smolder under the forest canopy.
Technology, technology, and more technology—this is what has driven the American oil and gas boom starting in the Bakken and now being played out in the Gulf of Mexico revival
The floods causing havoc across much of central Europe are a portent of things to come as the continent's climate gets stormier.
The U.S. intelligence community and scores of scientists at home and abroad have warned that the world's supply of clean, potable water is fast disappearing, due mostly to climate change, overuse and pollution.
Mountain glaciers are like giant sandpaper blocks, scouring their valley homes as they advance and retreat.
