There are many ongoing signs that the planet is heating up, even "on fire."
Longer, less frequent climate fluctuations may be contributing to abrupt and unexplained ecosystem shifts in the North Pacific, according to a study by the University of Exeter.
The biodiversity of two Northern Pacific salmon species may be at risk due to changes in ocean conditions at the equator, reports a study by the University of California, Davis.
A University of New Mexico Ph.D. student is perfecting a new way to forecast stream flow levels with tremendous accuracy.
In their annual, detailed physical of Earth's climate, scientists say the world is in increasingly hot and rising water.
The one common element in recent weather has been oddness. The West Coast has been warm and parched; the East Coast has been cold and snowed under. Fish are swimming into new waters, and hungry seals are washing up on California ...
Unusually warm oceans can have widespread effects on marine ecosystems. Warm patches off the Pacific Northwest from 2013 to 2015, and a couple of years earlier in the Atlantic Ocean, affected everything from sea lions to ...

It's called "the blob," and some blame it for the thousands of dead seabirds and emaciated sea lion pups that have washed ashore on California beaches since late last year.
A team of climate scientists, including Professor Mat Collins from the University of Exeter, have investigated the role of internal variability in the Earth's climate system in these periods of slow warming.
