Corals may be able to adapt to climate change. Scientists have discovered a threatened coral species that lives in deeper waters off of the U.S. Virgin Islands is more fertile than its shallow-water counterparts, which could have important implications for conservation efforts.
The year 2015 is on track to be the hottest on record after June saw record-high temperatures.
Polar bears may be less resilient to ice melt than previously thought. Scientists have found that while polar bears can reduce their energy expenditure a little, it's not enough to make up for current food shortages.
It turns out that 2014 was Earth's warmest year on record. Scientists have taken a closer look at temperatures over the past year and have found that globally, 2014 was the hottest yet recorded.
As temperatures warmed, our ocean kept the heat in check. Now, though, it seems as if the oceans have reached their limit-and we're going to see some major warming very soon.
Climate change may be having an impact on your fishing. Scientists have discovered that as temperatures warm, fish are moving to newly warmed waters, putting local species at risk.
Warmer oceans may cause harder rainfall. Scientists have found that as temperatures rise on our planet, there may be more precipitation extremes in our future.
The Greenland ice sheet is continuing to melt. Now, scientists have found another factor that's contributing; it turns out that the ice sheet melt has accelerated in response to surface rainfall associated with late-summer and autumnal cyclonic weather events.
Seabird populations have actually dropped by a staggering 70 percent since the 1950s. These findings, in particular, are a stark indication that marine ecosystems are rapidly declining.
Climate change is causing bumblebees to decline in force. Now, scientists have conducted the most comprehensive study to date of the impacts of climate change on critical pollinators.
The changes in the Arctic tundra due to climate change may not just be limited to just that area. It turns out that the alterations could fuel further warming in other areas.
Scientists have found that our oceans need an immediate and substantial reduction of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, or else we're liable to see far-reaching and potentially irreversible impacts on marine ecosystems.
