Researchers think there may be an ancient link between catastrophic climate change and the forces that build mountains: plate tectonics.
A look at erosion in Taiwan reveals a new set of greenhouse gas sources, raising the possibility that the links between rock, rainfall and climate control may need revision.
The discovery of a biological mechanism that halts rapid global cooling suggests the planet can protect itself from a complete deep freeze.
Reconstruction of climate events long before the Ice Ages shows that failure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions could eventually lead to temperatures rising by up to 10 degrees.
The planet’s inexorable warming means there will be no new ice age for at least the next 100,000 years, scientists say.
A climatic double jeopardy looms as the slowing of ocean currents threatens to combine with global warming to create scenes reminiscent of the movie "The Day After Tomorrow."
We urgently need to view climate change not as a slow, linear process to which we can adapt safely over time, but as a nonlinear set of events involving dramatic and irreversible changes to the global ecosphere.
