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.
Researchers find proof of global cooling after Chicxulub asteroid impact
No 'permanent El Nino,' scientists say—and the tropics may get even hotter
(Phys.org) —New research by Yale University scientists challenges a long-standing paradigm for temperature variability in the Pacific Ocean, casting doubt on the existence of a past period of "permanent" ...

Soot suspect in puzzling mid-1800s Alps glacier retreat
Scientists have uncovered strong evidence that soot, or black carbon, sent into the air by a rapidly industrializing Europe, likely caused the abrupt retreat of mountain glaciers in the European Alps.
Researchers find Europe's forests moving toward carbon sink saturation point
British scientists offer explanations on global warming pause
As climate changes, boreal forests to shift north, relinquish more carbon than expected
It's difficult to imagine how a degree or two of warming will affect a location. Will it rain less? What will happen to the area's vegetation? New Berkeley Lab research offers a way to envision a warmer future. It maps how ...
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 ...
Earth is warmer today than during 70 to 80 percent of the past 11,300 years
Using data from 73 sites around the world, scientists have been able to reconstruct Earth's temperature history back to the end of the last Ice Age, revealing that the planet today is warmer than it has been ...
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 ...
Global warming 'pause' since 1998 reflects natural fluctuation, study concludes
Statistical analysis of average global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 shows that the slowdown in global warming during this period is consistent with natural variations in temperature, according to research ...
