Republicans in competitive races are treading gingerly around climate change this campaign season, often saying they are not in a good position to make a judgment on the issue, then pivoting quickly to express concern for the environment, the ...

At least twice in a normal year, the Biscayne Bay rises to swamp the streets of this fashionable resort town in an event known as the “king tide.” Water spills over seawalls and gurgles up through storm drains in what scientists say is a preview ...

Sea levels remained steady for thousands of years before recent rapid rises, a study led by the Australian National University shows. The study looked at the fluctuation of ocean levels over the past 35,000 years, based on ice volume ...

The Pentagon on Monday released a report asserting decisively that climate change poses an immediate threat to national security, with increased risks from terrorism, infectious disease, global poverty and food shortages. It also predicted rising ...

Global warming is changing the way the US trains for and goes to war – affecting war games, weapons systems, training exercises, and military installations – according to the Pentagon. The defence secretary, Chuck Hagel, will tell a ...

The Defense Department sees global warming as a challenge that "poses immediate risks" to national security, rather than one that will rear its head only in the future. This shift in thinking comes as the sprawling department puts in ...

When city officials publicly kicked off the downtown waterfront master planning process in August, they described the nearly seven miles fronting Tampa Bay as a beautiful gem that set the city apart. What Mayor Rick Kriseman, Deputy ...

The world is getting warmer and that's already causing disasters that will devastate lives and cost hundreds of billions of dollars.Those problems are only getting worse, as shown by recent reports from the United Nation's ...

Antarctic ice floes extended further than ever recorded this southern winter, confounding the world’s most-trusted climate models. “It’s not expected,” says Professor John Turner, a climate expert at the British Antarctic Survey. “The ...   
9/10/2014
One of the most hotly-argued questions in climate research -- whether global warming has slowed or even stopped -- appears to have been definitively answered. And the scientists` conclusion is unambiguous: the Earth continues to warm at a ...   
8/10/2014
The ongoing, intense drought in California; the nonstop storms that left parts of Great Britain waterlogged all winter; the bitter winter cold in the eastern U.S. -- these are just some of the extreme weather events from this year that could be ...

In 1773, an expedition headed by Constantine John Phipps, the Second Baron Mulgrave, embarked on a dangerous journey North-to see how far they could go before having to turn back. In his report at the end of the exploratory voyage, he notes that ...

The Union of Concerned Scientists has said that over the next 15 to 30 years, Mid-Atlantic communities and some of the most important cities on the US east coast will experience severe floods and high tides, as worsening climate change raises sea ...   
8/10/2014
Many US coastal communities already struggle with flooding at high tides, a problem that will become "chronic" in the coming 15 years due to global warming, scientists said Wednesday. As shorelines are growing more populated, sea levels ...

First, the truth: After a summer of seasonal melting, on Sept. 17, 2014, Arctic sea-ice extent* likely hit its minimum for the year. The official word is that it was measured at 5.02 million square kilometers (1.94 million square miles). ...   
7/10/2014
The deepest reaches of earth's oceans have not warmed significantly over the last decade, according to scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California — a finding that undermines a leading theory as to why the pace of global warming ...   
7/10/2014
When British Capt. James Cook undertook his second voyage in the Southern Ocean in 1772, scientists on board measured the temperature 183 meters below the surface. It was colder than at the surface. Scientists have since graduated to ...

Southern Hemisphere ocean warming 'underestimated' | Photo, Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Hidden heat Previous estimates of global ocean warming have been significantly underestimated due to historically sparse temperature data from the Southern Ocean, new research has found. The study, led by Australian oceanographer Dr Paul ...   
6/10/2014
Scientists probably have significantly underestimated how much the world’s oceans have warmed since the 1970s, according to a new study. The finding may force researchers to revise their gauges of some climate change effects, including the rate ...   
6/10/2014
The deep ocean may not be hiding heat after all, raising new questions about why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years, said the US space agency Monday. Scientists have noticed that while greenhouse gases have continued ...   
6/10/2014
The oceans are warming faster than previously thought, according to a pair of new studies released this weekend and published in the scientific journal Natural Climate Change. This conclusion is largely due to enhanced information gathering in ...   
6/10/2014
Earth’s oceans have absorbed more than 90% of the warming caused by greenhouse gases, researchers estimate, with the stored heat showing up as warmer seawater. But a new analysis suggests scientists may have underestimated the size of the heat ...

The RV Kaharoa motored out of Wellington, New Zealand on Saturday, loaded with more than 100 scientific instruments, each eventually destined for a watery grave. Crewmembers will spend the next two months dropping the 50-pound devices, called ...   
5/10/2014
It's worse than we thought. Scientists may have hugely underestimated the extent of global warming because temperature readings from southern hemisphere seas were inaccurate. Comparisons of direct measurements with satellite data and ...   
5/10/2014
The deeper half of the ocean did not get measurably warmer in the last decade, but surface layers have been warming faster than we thought since the 1970s, two new studies suggest. Because the sea absorbs 90% of the heat caused by human ...
