The average temperature of Earth has barely risen over the past 16 years. So if global warming is still occurring, why does it seem like it's taking a break? Scientists may have the answer and have also announced that warming will continue again soon.
It turns out that even small fluctuations can trigger an abrupt climate change. Scientists have discovered that small changes in the sizes of ice sheets during the last ice age were enough to set off a warming event.
We're all aware that global warming can impact species negatively. Now, though, scientists have taken a closer look at how a changing climate might affect invasive species.
As our planet warms, it's changing the weather systems across the globe. Now, scientists have found that a rapid warming of the Atlantic Ocean has turbocharged the Pacific Equatorial trade winds.
What might cause global warming to increase in the next few decades? It could be water vapor.
Could our world be heading toward a "tipping point" when it comes to climate change? Scientists have taken a closer look at the geologic past in order to understand the mechanisms of abrupt climate change that could potentially lead to runaway global warming.
Researchers may have found out why a global warming "pause" has occurred. It turns out that it may be due to natural fluctuations in our own climate.
Could ants be a way to keep carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere? That just might be the case.
Warming temperatures may not impact birds as much as you might think. Instead, precipitation is what might cause problems for species in North America.
What's better at driving people away--hurricanes or heat? It turns out that while dramatic storms may temporarily shift a population, heat is the real driving force.
Scientists have found that if aircraft choose flight paths that reduce the formation of their distinctive condensation trails, they can also reduce their impact on global warming.
