A new study found that a reduction in meat consumption may not help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it could actually increase greenhouse gas emissions.
Researchers found that global mercury emissions from man made sources has declined by 30 percent in 20 years (1990-2010).
Researchers found that human made climate change may be hindering the start of the next ice age.
Researchers are shedding light on a potential "human" epoch, which could result in major impacts on the Earth's atmosphere along with massive extinctions in a few million years.
It turns out that clouds play a much larger role in the melting of the Greenland ice sheet than previously thought. Scientists have found that compared to clear skies, clouds enhance the meltwater runoff by a third.
Most people know that there are growth rings on trees, but did you know that there are also growth rings on rocks? Scientists have found a new way to tease out signals about Earth's climatic past from soil deposits on gravel and pebbles.
In a recent study, scientists found that the current pace of environmental changes is the most unusual in the Earth's history, compared to 120 million years ago.
In a recent study, researchers found that many marine creatures use the moon's light to migrate during the dark winter months. These creatures keep busy, which in turn helps them avoid predators that hunt with the moonlight.
Scientists have found that during the last ice age, the melting of a massive ice "lid" in the Antarctic released a massive amount of carbon dioxide that had been trapped in the ocean.
Scientists may have uncovered new clues to melting glaciers.
Melting sea ice significantly increases Arctic precipitation, which is a major threat to climate change
