(PhysOrg.com) -- A question central to research on global warming is how warmer temperatures caused by increased greenhouse gases could influence climate. Probing the past for clues about this potential effect, MIT and Yale ...
A doubling of abnormally wet or dry summer weather in the southeastern United States in recent decades has come from an intensification of the summertime North Atlantic Subtropical High (NASH), or "Bermuda High."
Even for a world getting used to wild weather, May seems stuck on strange.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Dramatic climate swings behind both last year's Pakistan flooding and this years Queensland floods in Australia are likely to continue as the world gets warmer, scientists predict.
(AP) -- The Midwest and Northern United States are likely to get a warmer winter, while the Southeast can expect just the opposite: cooler and wetter conditions.
