Glaciers in the Andes are retreating faster than ever, say researchers, with global warming causing them to shrink by as much as half since the 1970s.
Long-term global warming has brought the world five times as many record-breaking hot months worldwide - ten times as many in parts of Europe, Africa and southern Asia. And it's only going to get worse.
Some good news, for a change: a new genetic analysis indicates that many Amazon tree species are likely to survive global warming in the coming century, contrary to previous findings.
In a blow to those people who believe that global warming predictions are just a lot of hot air, an international team has established that predictions made 20 years ago are turning out pretty accurate.
Many governments are still failing miserably to keep global carbon emissions low enough to limit global warming to the two-degree-Centigrade international target.
Far from dooming us to runaway global warming, manmade carbon emissions may be saving us from an ice age fueled by carbon sequestration in peatland.
As much as 44 billion tons of nitrogen and 850 billion tons of carbon stored in arctic permafrost could be released into the environment over the next century by the effects of global warming.
Extreme temperatures meant it took five million years for the Earth to recover from the greatest mass extinction of all time.
Scientists say they've discovered clear evidence for the much-disupted theory that global warming leads to more hurricanes in the US.
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.
