Lowest amount of ice ever recorded in Arctic threatens animals

Greenhouse gas emissions leading to global warming is the reason for the smallest amount of ice covering Arctic waters ever recorded. In other words the amount of ice floating in Arctic water has never been lower and it leads to great concern.

Global warming blamed for hundreds of sea lion deaths

More than 1,500 sea lion pups have washed ashore along California's coasts over the past two months, with many of them on the brink of death, and the rest starving and emaciated. The photos are circulating online among animal enthusiasts and activists.

Ancient Atlantic algae provides part of climate change jig-saw

Aarhus - Analysis of ancient sea sediments by researchers based in Denmark demonstrates that the Sun’s impact on Earth’s climate isn’t constant over time but affects climate more when the Earth is cooler.

Antarctica's ice melt could redraw map of world's coastlines

NASA satellite studies show that in the past decade Antarctic ice melt has been adding about 118 billion metric tons per year to the oceans. This has raised concerns about a drastic reshaping of the world's major coastlines with heavy human population.

New connection between disease and climate change

Lincoln - Infectious diseases occurring in unexpected locations, sometimes carried by new hosts, are seen by some scientists as products of climate change. Here humans, crops, wildlife and livestock come into contact with new pathogens.

Oceans are warming so rapidly they are breaking scientific charts

Earlier this month the NOAA and NASA announced that 2014 was the hottest year ever recorded, shattering the previous records in 2005 and 2010. Now comes the news that global warming is heating the world's oceans at an unprecedented pace.

Climate change affects the soil ecosystem

Researchers looking at the impact of climate change have begun to study the ecosystems of the soil. This is by studying variations to the microbial composition over time.

Canadians want action on climate change

Ottawa - A survey on Canadians’ views about climate change has shown that the vast majority majority (88 per cent) want Canada to take significant actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Rising temperatures signal problems for honeybees

A bee parasite, normally associated with more exotic climates is threatening British bees. A new research model indicates that a rare gut parasite could cause increasing damage to U.K. bees as the climate warms.

Underwater robot sheds new light on Antarctic sea ice

Cambridge - A collaborative effort involving scientific teams from the UK, U.S. and Australia has produced the first detailed, high-resolution 3-D maps of Antarctic sea ice with the help of an underwater robot.

The hiatus is over — Ocean temperatures rising again

Global warming is not slowing down. A new report based on an analysis of ocean temperature datasets shows that as of January 2014, temperatures in the world's oceans have started to rise again after taking a 13-year hiatus.

U.S. lightning strikes to increase 50 percent as planet heats up

As man-made global warming continues to make the earth a warmer and wetter place, lightning strikes will also increase — by as much as 50 percent by the end of this century, scientists say in a new study.

Secret talks yield ambitious U.S. — China climate change deal

Beijing - The United States and China agreed on Wednesday to an ambitious action plan to combat climate change, the result of secret high-level communications between the two countries over the past nine months.

Antarctic sea ice extent dumbfounds climate scientists

There is more sea ice in Antarctic Ocean waters today than has ever been seen since scientists began using satellites to record and map the extent in the 1970s. While this may reflect negatively on global warming, scientists can explain the phenomenon.

Antarctic ice melts causing shift in Earth's gravity

The effects of climate change are now so profound that gravity itself is changing. The European Space Agency (ESA) announced Friday that Antarctica has lost enough ice in only three years to cause a shift in the Earth's gravitational pull.

Dengue fever's frightening rise associated with climate change

Health authorities in China and Southeast Asia are warning travelers to be particularly careful when traveling to Guangdong Province in China, Singapore, Taiwan and Malaysia. Dengue fever is rampant in these areas, with over 80,000 cases reported to date.

France aims to restore dark skies, turning night into night

Paris - As this year’s autumnal equinox approaches, hundreds of towns and cities across France will switch off their lights in an event designed to show off the night skies, free of light pollution.

Human-caused global warming may be irreversible says UN report

The final draft of a new international science report on human-caused climate change released to governments on Monday details a harsh, bleak future for our planet. The report stresses that the heating trends seen are dangerous and may be irreversible.

Acidic waters affecting shark behaviors

Atlanta - Sharks rely heavily on their sense of smell to locate prey in the word's waters. A new study argues that their honing ability is affected as waters are becoming increasingly acidic.

Climate change advocate sues over rejection of his work

Pittsburgh - Michael Mann, a professor of meteorology at Pennsylvania State University, is suing a conservative leaning DC policy center for libel after it published its opinion about his work on global warming/climate change.

As interest in Earth's changing climate heats up, a tiny dark particle is stepping into the limelight: black carbon. Commonly known as soot, black carbon enters the air when fossil fuels and biofuels, such as coal, wood, and diesel are burned. Black carbon is found worldwide, but its presence and impact are particularly strong in Asia.

The extent of Arctic sea ice on Aug. 26, 2012, the day the sea ice dipped to its previous smallest extent before the release of the data for September 2012.The line on the image shows the average minimum extent from the period covering 1979-2010, as measured by satellites. Every summer the Arctic ice cap melts down to what scientists call its “minimum” before colder weather builds the ice cover back up.
