Human beings have been pumping methane into the atmosphere since Roman times, in enough quantity for it to show up in the Greenland ice sheet.
Fish of all species look set to shrink in size by up to a fifth as the oceans continue to warm.
Recently discovered ancient forests in Canada's extreme north could be thriving again by 2100, new research indicates.
Sea otters are an up-to-now unsuspected ally in the fight against global warming, say scientists from UC Santa Cruz.
Global warming could mean more biodiversity on Earth, not less - just as long as we're prepared to wait several million years. In the short term, things don't look so good.
A massive reservoir of the greenhouse gas methane could be lying hidden beneath the Antarctic Ice Sheet, in a ticking time bomb for climate change.
Decreasing sea surface temperatures through cloud brightening could cut the severity of hurricanes by a full category, claims a team of British scientists.
Spanish researchers have discovered a novel way of removing carbon from the atmosphere - urine.
A recently published study has concluded that rising methane levels may not all be due to human activity.
A recent statistical analysis conducted by NASA concludes that Earth's land areas have become much more likely to experience an extreme summer heat wave than they were in the middle of the 20th century.
Physics professor Richard A. Muller now believes that the world's climate change is a result of human activity.
Despite being separate species, polar bears and brown bears interbred during periods of global warming in the past - and appear to be doing the same today.
A team of German researchers believe stimulating the growth of algae in our oceans may offer a viable method of removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Melting sea ice and global atmospheric warming are making the Arctic warm as much as four times faster than the global average, Australian scientists say.
Some scientists advocate pumping aerosols into the atmosphere to counter global warming by reflecting solar energy away.
Pollution is leading thunderstorm clouds to capture heat, increasing global warming in a way that climate models have failed to take into account.
Public support in the US for government action on climate change has fallen over the last two years, thanks to political rhetoric and a bit of cold weather.
Electric Vehicle haters may have just lost one of their major rhetorical weapons.
NASA scientists have detected large releases of methane - a highly potent greenhouse gas - from the crumbling Arctic sea ice.
Dealing with the dangers of nitrous oxide in the atmosphere means not only a 50 percent cut in emissions but a 50 percent cut in meat-eating too, say scientists.
