Longer Summer Stretches of Drought, Extreme Heat and Flooding Expected in a Warming World, Study Says
The changes could affect health, agriculture and ecosystems, the study suggests.
A new study shows, for the first time, evidence of a link between human-caused global warming and melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
In the Southeastern United States, the increasing amount of rain during hurricane season is coming not from hurricanes but from non-tropical storms created by weather fronts, new research finds.
I often say that the human species is ingenious and not suicidal. This would be a good time for America to demonstrate that instinct for survival and pragmatic invention.

A new study combs through the factors that can promote wildfires in California, and concludes that in many cases, warming climate is the decisive driver.
This July, Columbia University and Tel Aviv University will send graduate students to the Middle East to learn about the environmental challenges facing communities in Jordan and Israel.
Climate models predict that as a result of human-induced climate change, the surface of the Pacific Ocean should be warming. But one key part is not.
