Future warming from fossil fuel burning could be more intense and longer-lasting than previously thought. This prediction emerges from a new study by Richard Zeebe at the University of Hawai'i who includes insights from episodes of climate change in the geologic past to inform projections of man-made future climate change.

A study of rocks in Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Syria provides powerful support for the theory that a major impact helped wipe out mammoths and other megafauna, and destroyed a major prehistoric culture.
Inconsistency of supply is one of the biggest drawbacks of renewables such as wind and solar.
Put simply: the wind doesn't blow all day, and the sun doesn't shine at night.
The Earth experienced many more giant asteroid strikes in the past than previously believed, new NASA research shows.
