Shrouded within the discussion on climate change are the comparably impactful, shorter time-scale extreme events that can "shock" a part of the world in a matter of months or even weeks. While the gradual transformation of ...
Scientists have discovered the cause of a mass extinction of sea-floor marine organisms 800,000 years ago—which also provides insight into how climate change can impact on deep ocean biota.
Climate change appears to have driven to extinction an Australian Great Barrier Reef rodent, according to a new study, which suggests the species may be the first mammal lost to the global phenomenon.
An international team of scientists has found that man-made climate change nearly doubled the likelihood of last month's devastating French flooding.
