Climate change could cause cold-blooded animals' thermal tolerance to shrink
Cold-blooded animals can tolerate body temperatures only a few degrees above their normal high temperatures before they overheat, which could be a problem as the planet itself warms, according to San Francisco ...
Cosmic radiation causes fluctuations in global temperatures, but doesn't cause climate change
New evidence that global warming will hurt US wheat production
New discovery may allow scientists to make fuel from CO2 in the atmosphere
(Phys.org) —Excess carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere created by the widespread burning of fossil fuels is the major driving force of global climate change, and researchers the world over are looking ...
Direct evidence for a positive feedback in climate change
A new study has confirmed the existence of a positive feedback operating in climate change whereby warming itself may amplify a rise in greenhouse gases resulting in additional warming.
A global temperature conundrum: Cooling or warming climate?
When the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently requested a figure for its annual report, to show global temperature trends over the last 10,000 years, the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Zhengyu ...
Simulation explains why Asian glaciers are not melting
Researchers find temperature feedback magnifying climate warming in Arctic
Warming climates intensify greenhouse gas given out by oceans
Rising global temperatures could increase the amount of carbon dioxide naturally released by the world's oceans, fuelling further climate change, a study suggests.
Global warming will open unexpected new shipping routes in Arctic, researchers find
Shipping lanes through the Arctic Ocean won't put the Suez and Panama canals out of business anytime soon, but global warming will make these frigid routes much more accessible than ever imagined by melting ...
