It turns out that the Arctic is getting a bit warmer. A new NOAA-led study reveals that temperatures are rising at more than twice the rate of global air temperatures.
When it comes to understanding the relationship between global warming and extreme weather, it's important to ask exactly the right questions.
It turns out that it takes just a decade for a single emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) to have its maximum warming effect on the Earth. The findings have major implications for future warming as human-created CO2 emissions continue to be released.
How is global warming linked to carbon emissions? For the first time, scientists have uncovered how global warming is related to the amount of carbon emitted.
It looks like things are heating up. The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced that the global average temperature over land and ocean surfaces for January to October 2014 was the highest on record.
Although we haven't seen an ice free period in the Arctic for 2.6 million years, we may actually see it in our lifetimes if warming continues.
When it comes to climate change and global warming, extreme weather can play a major role in proving its existence-or can it? Scientists have found that climate change skeptics are unmoved by droughts, floods, heat waves and other weather events.
Most are aware that bleaching events in tropical corals can cause short-term impacts and devastate reefs. Now, though, scientists have found that there are longer-term effects.
When it comes to global warming, we may be dealing with tanning oil rather than a blanket. Scientists have taken a closer look at what happens to the planet under climate change and have found that instead of slow warming, we may be dealing with something a bit more complicated.
It turns out that this past summer may have experienced the highest ocean temperatures ever recorded. Scientists have announced that the summer saw the highest global mean sea surface temperatures to date.
Scientists may have discovered a new mechanism that could be a huge contributor when it comes to warming in the Arctic.
