Rising temperatures could accelerate climate change by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide stored in ponds and increasing the methane they release, new research shows.
An international study published today involving University of Queensland research has found large numbers of threatened species have already been impacted by climate change.
A new study finds an increase of strong and extremely strong fronts in summertime and autumn over Europe. Whether this is a trend or caused by climate change remains to be seen, according to lead author Sebastian Schemm.
Expansion of renewable energy cannot by itself stave off catastrophic climate change, scientists warned Monday.
Without a significant effort to reduce greenhouse gases, including an accelerated deployment of technologies for capturing atmospheric carbon and storing it underground, and sustained growth in renewables such as wind and ...
Global forest ecosystems, widely considered to act as the lungs of the planet, 'held their breath' during the most recent occurrence of a warming hiatus, new research has shown.
Of the many things that keep climate scientists awake at night, tipping points may be the scariest.
Scientists and policymakers rely on complex computer simulations called Integrated Assessment Models to figure out how to address climate change. But these models need tinkering to make them more accurate.
As scientists work to predict how climate change may affect hurricanes, droughts, floods, blizzards and other severe weather, there's one area that's been overlooked: mild weather. But no more.
The signing of the Paris agreement in 2015 may give the impression that the major questions concerning climate change have at last been answered and that climate science has met its challenges.
