They say low air pressure, high humidity and an unusually absent wind played key roles ...
Religion and science
are at best strange bedfellows, as the Catholic Church has found since the time of its unfortunate experience with Galileo. So it is significant that Pope Francis, who has shown great appetite for departing from some of the ...

Editor’s note: 2015 is shaping up to be a pivotal year with respect to climate
change as growing concern about impacts converges with a critical stage in the decades-long process of shaping an international agreement to change our ...
The world community has rallied around the goal of limiting global warming to two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), but how to get there is becoming a headache.
One of the many knots to untangle at UN climate
talks is whether to ...
What if the missing heat has been there all along? In 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) flagged an odd phenomenon: Atmospheric temperature data collected over the past few decades suggested that global warming had slowed ...
A reported pause in global warming-a mystery that has vexed scientists and delighted contrarians-was an illusion based on inadequate data, U.S. government researchers reported Thursday.
The findings by National Oceanic and Atmospheric ...
Over the last couple of years, the conservative movement, which loves science
, has had a completely scientific-based reason for skepticism about climate
change. The Earth's temperature seemed to be rising at a slower rate than scientists had ...
US researchers say new evidence casts doubt on the idea that global warming has "slowed" in recent years.
A US government laboratory says the much talked about "pause" is an illusion caused by inaccurate data.
Using updated data on the Earth's surface temperatures worldwide, US government scientists have found no evidence of a pause in global warming in recent years, according to research published on Thursday.
The report by scientists at the ...
A major review of global temperatures by a leading US Government agency has failed to find support for the view that global warming has slowed down since 1998, as many climate
sceptics have repeatedly claimed over the past two ...
The broiling heat wave that suffocated parts of India with temperatures regularly above 110°F at the end of May -- and killed around 2,000 people in just a few days according to estimates -- has finally waned. But the deadly episode has focused ...
Back in 1999, I made an upsetting discovery. By comparing the temperature tolerance of reef-building corals with the projected effects of rising carbon dioxide levels, I found that the oceans would soon grow too warm for corals to bear, meaning ...
Soon after the 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Nepal in end-April , geologists based in Europe asserted that the tragedy was caused by climate
These experts were of the opinion that the pressure that falls upon the underlying ...

A slowdown in rising sea levels recorded over the past decade is down to a measurement error. In fact, sea levels are rising more quickly than ever.
Over the past century, the sea level has risen by around 0.2 metres, and it has been ...
Sea-level rise is accelerating, not declining as some have hoped, scientists said on Monday citing meltwater from Earth's ice sheets as the likely cause.
In 2013, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) said the global ...
Sea level rise sped up over the last two decades rather than slowing down as previously thought, according to new research.
Records from tide gauges and satellites have shown sea level rise slowing slightly over the past 20 years. But as ...
Talk of a global warming pause, or hiatus, has been widespread the past few years, as the rate of increasing temperature slowed slightly since the 1990s.
But multiple lines of evidence show that global warming hasn`t paused at all, which ...
change denial in public discourse may encourage climate
scientists to over-emphasise scientific uncertainty and is also affecting how they themselves speak -- and perhaps even think -- about their own research, a new study from the ...
An eclectic group of scientists in Antarctica, known as the "strangest continent on earth", undertake painstaking research into the effects of climate
change on local animals and the environment.
