Satellite data raise red flags about the draining of underground aquifers in California and elsewhere to meet the demands of expanding populations.
Years of drought and higher temperatures mean the chance of devastating wildfires in the southwest U.S. is higher than ever -- particularly in southern California.
Scientists call for an international effort to learn why temperatures on some mountains appear to be rising faster than in nearby lowlands.
Scientists believe Chinese civilization could have been founded by climate refugees after the collapse of an Inner Mongolia-area culture over 4,000 years ago.
New research suggests that climate change won’t lead to more storms after all -- but the bad ones could be even more devastating.
Europe’s wheat and barley yields could be heading for a 20 percent drop as a result of temperature rise and an increase in extreme weather.
As European summers get warmer, research reveals that lighter-colored insects are thriving -- while milder winters in the Southern Hemisphere are restricting the growth of some shrubs and trees.
The vulnerability of Greenland’s glaciers to global warming is even greater than feared, according to radar and satellite data analysed by U.S. research scientists -- and that's bad news for rising sea levels.
Restoring threatened reefs that protect about 200 million people in coastal communities would cost 20 times less than building artificial breakwaters to reduce the effect of pounding waves, scientists calculate.
Scientists warn that high yields in America’s Corn Belt states could drop by up to 30 percent as crops become increasingly sensitive to droughts and hot, dry air in a warming climate.
