(Phys.org) —Future episodes of extreme weather will lead to mass extinctions of insects and reptiles in the next century, according to a new international study by Danish and Australian scientists.
Heat waves could significantly reduce crop yields and threaten global food supply if climate change is not tackled and reversed.
Using a cutting-edge research technique, UCLA researchers have reconstructed the temperature history of a region that plays a major role in determining climate around the world.
Global warming will reduce the world's crop production by up to two percent every decade and wreak $1.45 trillion of economic damage by the end of this century, according to a draft UN report, Japanese media said Friday.
(AP)—Man-made global warming is worsening and will disrupt both the natural world and human society, warns a joint report of two of the world's leading scientific organizations.
Extremely hot temperatures over land have dramatically and unequivocally increased in number and area despite claims that the rise in global average temperatures has slowed over the past 10 to 20 years.
Vast amounts of data related to climate change are being compiled by research groups all over the world. Data from these many and various sources results in diﬀerent climate projections; hence, the need arises to combine ...
Heat stored in the western Pacific Ocean caused by an unprecedented strengthening of the equatorial trade winds appears to be largely responsible for the hiatus in surface warming observed over the past 13 years.
Tree roots in the mountains may play an important role in controlling long-term global temperatures. Researchers have found that temperatures affect the thickness of the leaf litter and organic soil layers, as well as the ...
