What created this huge crater in Siberia?
What is it with Russia and explosive events of cosmic origins? The 1908 Tunguska Explosion, the Chelyabinsk bolide of February 2013, and now this: an enormous 80-meter wide crater discovered in the Yamal ...
Global warming trend unaffected by 'fiddling' with temperature data
Attacks on institutions that keep records of global temperatures, such as NASA, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the UK Met Office, and Australia's Bureau of Meteorology, continue to ...
Study shows how meltwater on Greenland's ice sheet contribute to rising sea levels
As the largest single chunk of melting snow and ice in the world, the massive ice sheet that covers about 80 percent of Greenland is recognized as the biggest potential contributor to rising sea levels due ...
Global warming not just a blanket: In the long run, it's more like tanning oil
While computer models churn out bleak forecasts for the planet's future, we also have a more conceptual understanding of what is happening as humans pump carbon dioxide into the air. But the conceptual understanding ...
Small volcanic eruptions could be slowing global warming
Small volcanic eruptions might eject more of an atmosphere-cooling gas into Earth's upper atmosphere than previously thought, potentially contributing to the recent slowdown in global warming, according to ...
Scientists suggest ocean warming in Southern Hemisphere underestimated
Using satellite observations and a large suite of climate models, Lawrence Livermore scientists have found that long-term ocean warming in the upper 700 meters of Southern Hemisphere oceans has likely been ...
Europe now ten times likelier to get heatwaves, study finds
Scientists who a decade ago found that global warming had doubled the risk of an extremely hot summer in Europe reported on Monday that such an event was now 10 times likelier.
Big snowstorms will still occur in Northern Hemisphere following global warming, study finds
If ever there were a silver lining to global warming, it might be the prospect of milder winters. After all, it stands to reason that a warmer climate would generate less snow.
Obama mocks foes who brand climate change a 'liberal plot'
US President Barack Obama mocked Republicans who reject global warming as a "liberal plot," as he pumped up a crowd of environmental activists in Washington.
Obama says climate change deniers ignoring science

Trapped atmospheric waves triggered more weather extremes
Weather extremes in the summer—such as the record heat wave in the United States that hit corn farmers and worsened wildfires in 2012—have reached an exceptional number in the last ten years. Man-made ...
If global warming is real, why was it so cold and snowy last winter?
Americans view global warming by what they see outside their windows and not scientific evidence, according to a University of Michigan survey.
NOAA: Globe sets 5th hottest-month record of 2014
Despite a bitter U.S. cold snap, the globe is rushing hell-bent toward its warmest year on record with last month setting the fifth monthly heat record of the year.
Climate change increases risk of crop slowdown in next 20 years
The world faces a small but substantially increased risk over the next two decades of a major slowdown in the growth of global crop yields because of climate change, new research finds.
