Scientists have found that sea ice actually removes CO2 from the atmosphere with the help of frost flowers and as it retreats, more gas may be released.
While rising temperatures and shifting precipitation may get most of the attention, climate change can also impact wind patterns which, in turn, could alter predator-prey relationships.
Scientists are constantly taking inspiration from animals in order to create new materials. Now, they've managed to create a new adhesive inspired by the sticky proteins that mussels and barnacles excrete to allow them to cling to a hard surface--even underwater.
While climate change can benefit some locations, other areas are more at risk. Now, scientists have taken a look at which sections of the world's population are left most at risk to food shortages and extreme weather events.
As our climate continues to change and as carbon dioxide emissions continue to mount, scientists are becoming less and less optimistic about our chances to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.
A newly discovered dinosaur, called a hadrosaur, had a nose that put others to shame. Named Rhinorex condrupus, the hadrosaur lived in what is now Utah about 75 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period.

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is now home to a pair of newly-born cheetah cubs that are being hand raised by the animal care staff there.
Recent findings published in the journal Science show that primates really do appreciate fairness.
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is thrilled with the arrival of the newly-born dama gazelle calf, born Saturday.
As autumn sweeps across the United States, the leaves on trees are bursting into brilliant red and gold and orange hues. Now, scientists have found that this season may be lasting a little longer.
