The study of human-caused climate change and deep concern over the future of the planet may feel like a child of the last few decades, but not so. A look through the pages of Popular mechanics shows scientists trying to come to grips with carbon emissions, disappearing ice, and climate change all the ...
Cleveland, Ohio - Cuyahoga County will spend $100,000 to develop an action plan for dealing with climate change. climate change is a key component of the Department of Sustainability's five-year strategic plan, which was adopted by County Council last fall, said Mike Foley, director of sustainability.

Using more than 200 blood, tissue and feather samples from across the breeding range, the researchers discovered genes that appear to be responding to climate, and found that bird populations that most need to adapt to climate change are experiencing declines. UCLA evolutionary biologist Kristen ...
climate change is heating up the Arctic far faster than anywhere else in the world. The ice covering the Arctic Ocean has shrunk rapidly--50 percent of the summer ice extent disappeared in just the last 20 years. Without its ice cover, the Arctic Ocean is warming, especially under 24 hours of sunlight in ...
