Climate change may be drastically impacting boreal forests in the future. Researchers have found that boreal forests have the potential to hit a tipping point this century.
Researchers have made a disturbing discovery about the impact of climate change on North American lizards. Due to high temperatures of 110 degrees Fahrenheit, within minutes, lizard embryos die due to immobility and their inability to seek proper shade. When their surrounding soil becomes too hot, t...
Scientists have found along the Tien Shan, Central Asia's largest mountain range, glaciers have lost a staggering 27 percent of their mass and 18 percent of their area during the last 50 years.
Climate change may be impacting your health in major ways. Scientists have taken a closer look at how the changing climate will impact public health in the U.S. Gulf Coast.
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.
