Over the next few years, state tree nurseries across the country will build new greenhouses, expand irrigation systems, upgrade seeding equipment and bring on staff in hopes of turning millions of new federal dollars into millions of new seedlings.
In a vertical city like New York, any serious effort to address climate change has to focus on the greenhouse gas emissions caused by its buildings, which emit more air pollution than any other state's.
Oil and gas producers must ramp up technological breakthroughs now to stave off climate disaster, U.S. climate envoy John Kerry warns.
Heat waves are not new, but their frequency and intensity have become more intense as the climate has warmed.
More than half of the world’s largest lakes and reservoirs have lost trillions of gallons of water a year since the early 1990s thanks to hotter temperatures and excessive use, a new study finds.
There's a two-out-of-three chance that the world will temporarily hit a key warming limit within the next five years, the United Nations weather agency said Wednesday.
Heat dangers are becoming familiar nationwide as global warming creates new challenges to protect the aged.
Current global policies put us on track for about 5.5 degrees Fahrenheit of warming in the next 75 years, but there is a lot of wiggle room in that value, depending on whether or not actual emissions match global policies.
New York state is banning natural gas stoves and furnaces in most new buildings in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Yet even as many across the country marked Earth Day on Saturday, relatively few say they feel motivated when they talk about the issue.
Floating in the port of Los Angeles, a strange-looking barge covered with pipes and tanks contains a concept that scientists hope to make wave…
From Seattle to Palm Beach, Florida, city leaders agree that urban areas need more trees to alleviate the effects of climate change. Amid the growing attention to tree canopy — and an infusion of federal funding — more than a dozen cities are convening to share ideas and plan the urban forests of the future.
A new study finds that climate change is making major league sluggers into even hotter hitters, sending an extra 50 or so home runs a year over the fences. A study published Friday by Dartmouth College scientists did a statistical analysis of more than 200,000 balls put into play in the last few years. They say climate change added about 1% to the homer totals.
Learn how a warming climate is sneaking up on us in subtle ways.
One of the largest climate-change experiments on the planet is underway in Minnesota.
The Gulf of Maine is warming faster than the vast majority of the world's oceans.
With the robot named Icefin lowered down a 1,925-foot hole, scientists saw how important crevasses are in the fracturing of the ice.
As glaciers shrink with climate change, the amount of water in glacial-fed lakes grows, making them more dangerous when dams burst.
The world will likely breach the internationally agreed-upon climate change threshold in about a decade, artificial intelligence predicts in a new study that's more pessimistic than previous modeling.
Much of the Alps just don't look right for this time of year. Sparse snowfall and unseasonably warm winter weather in Europe's central mountains are allowing grass to blanket hillsides across the region.
U.S. climate envoy John Kerry says last month’s international global warming talks didn’t do enough to speed up cuts in emissions of heat-trapping gases.
California air quality officials released a bold climate plan Wednesday that outlines in broad strokes how the state intends to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
On a thermometer, a tenth of a degree seems tiny. But small changes in average temps can reverberate in a global climate to turn into big disasters.
Amid rising seas and a more volatile climate, Pacific island nations want legal protections so their citizens still have somewhere to live. Some of the Solomon Islands have already disappeared.
🎧 A Montana paleontologist is sounding an alarm over global warming based on his findings. Learn about his concerns on this episode of the Montana Untamed podcast.
