It's been a decade since Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth came out in theaters, and we're still at the beginning stages of addressing human-caused global warming. Now, a new documentary from Academy Award-winning director Charles Ferguson,...Show More Summary
Population sizes of the Australian carpenter bee have increased dramatically during the global warming following the last Ice Age. This matches previous studies on bees in North America and Fiji, showing that bees from diverse habitats respond strongly to climate change.
Coral in the Great Barrier Reef is bleaching, which means they are dormant due to environmental factors and could re-emerge. But, the article reverts to the liberal media narrative of global warming/climate change in that humans are causing it.
The mainstream U.S. media rightly criticizes Donald Trump for his bigoted remarks about Mexicans and Muslims – and his know-nothing-ism on global warming – but wrongly ignores Hillary Clinton’s role in futile and bloody wars, Gilbert Doctorow notes. By Gilbert…Read more ?
It’s an observation repeated loud and often by climate deniers: while Greenland melts like a popsicle in the summer sun, Antarctica is staying chill. Parts of the coastline are actually gaining sea ice. According to a new scientific paper, there’s no conspiracy to be found here, but rather, a manifestation of global ocean currents.

Nuclear proliferation and global warming are two big issues that Donald Trump is wrong about. They're also the two biggest threats to our planet. Nuclear war followed by nuclear winter could end most life on earth within a matter of weeks or months. Show More Summary
Forget what humans are doing to the planet. In the end, the Sun will have the only say that matters.
Hybrids are invading the world. Species that evolved far apart have been thrown together by worldwide transport, global warming, deforestation and farming. This is increasing the rate at which plant hybrids are being produced and these new species can dramatically affect local plants, animals and...
It’s the one fact everyone’s one climate change-denying friend likes to seize on: if global warming is real, why are temperatures in the Antarctic holding steady? Now, finally, we may have an answer. Unique currents around the South Pole pull deep waters up to the surface–very cold...
Scientists from the University of Geneva and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany recently published a study in Science Advances that shows how lasers could soon be used to combat global warming. Their paper, “Laser vaporization of cirrus-like ice particles with secondary ice multiplication,” explains the process...
OSLO (Reuters) - A persistent chill in the ocean off Antarctica that defies the global warming blamed for melting Arctic ice at the other end of the planet is caused by cold waters welling up from the depths after hundreds of years, scientists said on Monday.
By Tim Radford / Climate News Network Scientists have been warning that wildfires could be exacerbated by global warming, but new research indicates that this is not an immediate threat.
Russia set itself at odds with a drive by China and the United States for rapid ratification of a global agreement to slow climate change when a senior official said on Wednesday that Moscow first wanted a clear set of rules.Negotiating...Show More Summary
In Knowledge Games Karen Schrier argues that games can tackle some of the thorniest problems, from global warming to lack of food and clean water
One of the justifications for fracking is the use of natural gas as a bridging fuel between coal and a low-carbon future. However natural gas is mostly methane, which has strong global warming impacts in its own right. Natural gas therefore only provides climate benefits over coal if the leakage is...
The Statue of Liberty welcomes your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, but keep your global warming.
NOAA's land & ocean temperature records for April, 2016. Global temperatures can be broadly summarized as "unseasonably warm." (Illustration: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/Public Domain) It’s been unseasonably warm this past week in Atlas Obscura ’s headquarters New York City, with temperatures about ten degrees higher than average.

Last month, The Inquisitr announced that climate change is being increasingly accepted as fact. No longer is global warming treated worldwide as an “if” but rather as a “when.” However, in light of new reports from UNESCO and others, the threats of global warming may begin to receive serious consideration and action.
