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.
Climate change is causing temperatures to warm all along the east coast and now, these higher temperatures are causing spring to come earlier than ever.
Global warming continues to be a problem for our planet. Yet scientists have long wondered whether solar activity has anything to do with it.
We all know that the Greenland ice sheet is melting, and could contribute significantly to sea level rise. Now, though, researchers have discovered the underlying causes behind this melting.
The mystery of mountain snow has been relatively untouched by scientists. Yet flurries that fall against these continuities are also responsible for the amount of water found in rivers located on or near the land masses.
Methane continues to seep into the atmosphere and exacerbates Earth's greenhouse gas problem. Now, scientists believe that we may not be many years away from an environmental tipping point that could result in runaway warming.
It turns out that there may be no going back when it comes to a section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Scientists have discovered that this region is in irreversible decline, with nothing stopping the entire glacial basin from disappearing into the sea.
