Extreme weather events including tornadoes, hurricanes, and high heat declined in 2013 compared to years past, according to a new study that comes amid continuing scientific reports of the increasing impacts of climate change.
Climate change deniers funded largely by untraceable money have deliberately obstructed legislative action and confused public understanding of the urgent environmental issues of global warming, according to a new study that analyzed financial resources of 91 climate change counter-movement organziations in the U.S.
According to a new study of Texas power usage, huge amounts of water could be saved if we changed from thermal to natural gas for electricity generation — even with including significant amount of water used in the hydraulic fracturing process (AKA "fracking") needed to generate natural gas.
Socotra may be the most alien-like place on earth. The Yemeni archipelago contains unique plant life, one third of which isn't found anywhere else on earth. Socotra is among the most isolated non-volcanic landforms on our planet.
Researchers have found kimberlite in Antarctica, a rare rock that may contain diamonds. Greg Yaxley of the Australian National University in Canberra, who led the research on the kimberlite, said that it would be "very surprising" if the kimberlite didn't contain diamonds. While mining in Antarctica is illegal due to a 1991 protocol ...
The North Pole is shifting due to melting glaciers and ice sheets — a result of climate change. The finding suggests that scientists might be able to track global warming by monitoring the position of the poles.
A company has designed a bicycle that contains an air filter in the handlebars, meant to cut back on fumes inhaled by the rider. In one more effort to slow the impending impacts of climate change, the Air-Purifier Bike sends out oxygen through a photosynthesis-like system powered by a lithium battery.
