As world leaders gather in Paris at the end of the month for the COP 21 climate summit, new research from scientists reveals the destructive impact the warming global ocean can have on society.
In a new paper out in Nature Scientific Reports today, the University of Delaware's Xiao-Hai Yan and colleagues report on the coastal ocean response to global warming acceleration and hiatus.
The sensitivity of marine communities to ocean warming rather than rising ocean temperatures will have strong short-term impacts on biodiversity changes associated with global warming, according to new research.
The "El Nino" phenomenon, which sparks global climate extremes, is this year the worst in more than 15 years, the UN weather agency said Monday, warning it was already causing severe droughts and flooding.
Lawmakers in Peru warned that the extreme weather system El Nino is threatening to wash hundreds of corpses out of a graveyard, and ordered the bodies to be moved.
