Earth's atmosphere may be more sensitive to carbon dioxide than previously thought, which means that extreme weather events could become more frequent.
Climate scientists avoid blaming any single weather event like Sandy on global warming. But many say that climate change may well have played an important role in Sandy’s destruction, as well as other recent extreme weather events.
A number of climate factors such as wind, humidity, precipitation and evaporation can affect how glaciers behave.
What do Arctic warming, Hurricane Sandy, and Naval records from the Victorian Age have in common? Everything.
Scientists have shed light on why, unlike the dramatic losses reported in the Arctic, the Antarctic sea ice cover has increased under the effects of climate change.
The new model shows how a melting would alter the topography of "one of the world's refrigerators," potentially affecting adjacent ocean circulation and salinity, and speeding further melting.
Global warming is bad news for winter sports. But that's not the only way climate change will mean culture change, too.
A project to help track Arctic climate change using volunteers to transcribe U.S. ship logs online was launched on Wednesday by the National Archives and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Scientists from NERC's British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena California explain why, unlike the dramatic losses reported in the Arctic, the Antarctic sea ice cover has increased under the effects of climate change.
Global warming could cause frequent and severe failures of the Indian summer monsoon in the next two centuries.
Some scientists say that the key to Sandy's impact may be an extremely rare clash of weather systems.
As the East Coast deals with the havoc and devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, climate scientists are seeing yet another reason to put climate change and global warming on the current political agenda.
The study found that rice yields would likely fall by a third by the end of the century, while methane emissions from rice cultivation would jump 58 percent.
The consensus around GMOs-or at least the specter of one-arose through the lobbying and support of an industry desperate to protect its own multibillion-dollar investments.
