Los Angeles - A study published on Monday by climate scientists at UCLA forecasts wild extremes of drought and flooding in California as the climate continues to warm.

One impact of climate change occurring in U.S. no one hears about

A boundary that divides the humid eastern U.S. and the dry western Plains appears to have shifted 140 miles to the east over the past century due to global warming, new research suggests. How will this affect farming and agriculture in the years to come?

Abnormally warm Atlantic waters found off Nova Scotia

Halifax - While Nova Scotia, Canada was digging out from a spring snowstorm this week, about 200 kilometers (124 miles) off the coast, scientists were recording record-high ocean temperatures in deep water that reached 14 degrees Celsius (57 degrees Fahrenheit).

According to a new study a more in-depth understanding of ocean turbulence could improve existing climate models and proved a more accurate prediction of climate change.

Snowpack levels in western U.S. show 'dramatic' decline

A new study of long-term snow monitoring sites in the western United States found declines in snowpack at more than 90 percent of those sites - and one-third of the declines were deemed significant.

Over the last 10-years, farmers in California have experienced the symptoms of climate change — less winter chill, crops blooming earlier, more heat waves and years of drought when the state baked in record temperatures.

Beech trees take over northeastern U.S. and it's not a good thing

The increased temperatures and precipitation brought about by climate change have made it possible for beech trees to thrive in the northeastern U.S. and Southern Canada, and researchers say this is not a good thing.

According to a new study published this month, there may be more than 15 million gallons of toxic mercury buried in the permafrost of the Northern Hemisphere. As the permafrost melts, all that mercury will be released.

Op-Ed: Natural gas is part of the climate problem, not the solution

The last 10 years have seen coal being replaced by cheaper and cleaner energy sources, like renewables and natural gas. And while coal use has dropped 44 percent, LNG use has risen by 45 percent.

Op-Ed: Can AI deal with climate change AND human stupidity?

Sydney - It’s official; predicting the weather is now very difficult, thanks to climate change. The weird jet streams, heat, floods and droughts are hitting hard, and knowing what happens next is crucial.
