Recent findings suggest that relatively close supernovas could theoretically have triggered at least four disruptions to Earth's climate over the last 40,000 years. What happens in space may not always stay in space.
These gains would come primarily from avoiding rising health care costs, productivity losses, and declining agricultural output, according to the authors.
A new study presents the first physical evidence that the Venus’ and Jupiter’s gravity can cause shifts in Earth’s orbit—and swings in its climate—every 405,000 years.
Hot weather is the number one summertime killer in much of the world — and the number of these deadly heat waves is only going to increase.
The World Meteorological Organization will scrutinize Arctic and Antarctic to minimize risks linked to rapid climate change.
The researchers calculated that the combination of sunshine and CO2 at the end of this century would already be equivalent to the Eocene climate 50 million years ago, the warmest time period since the dinosaurs reigned.
Now an international team of climate scientists has found a connection between many extreme weather events and the impact climate change is having on the jet stream.
Six scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research found extreme rain storms in America could increase by 400% due to climate change.
What if I told you the world could take one action this year that would shave off a half a degree Celsius of warming from our overheating planet? Leaders have a chance when they meet in Rwanda next month to secure a phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
Humanity is about to deepen its understanding of Earth's winds. The European Space Agency has secured a rocket launch deal for its wind-tracking Aeolus satellite, which is now expected to enter orbit before the end of 2017.
Humans have changed the Earth to such an extent that some scientists say we have entered a new geological epoch. The new geological epoch would be called the Anthropocene and it would bring an end to the Holocene, which began at the end of the last Ice Age.
Rising seas and more ice-free months are causing erosion that is eating away at the island. Residents fear it will be completely submerged within decades.
For the first time in 4 million years, carbon dioxide concentrations cleared 400 parts per million (ppm) at the South Pole. It's the last climate-monitoring spot on Earth to pass the historic milestone.
