  • New studies have shown that scientists have underestimated the effect that two chemical compounds may have on Earth's climate. Carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide can contribute to global warming and climate change, and might bring about a climate on Earth that life has never experienced

  • The ever-expanding human population will continue to impact the habitability of our planet into the future. But moving humans from Earth into the final frontier carries an environmental cost as well.

  • New research indicates that global warming could be having devastating effects, even with small shifts in tempertaure. Even some of Earth's most reilient species may find the changes too difficult to survive. Studying the effects of climate change can help us understand life's future on

  • Whiffs of oxygen may have been present on Earth before the Great Oxidation Event. This may have allowed for niche environments for oxygen-dependent organisms before the global atmosphere became oxygen rich. This isn't the only example of how climate change can first occur regionally rather

  • We have a long way to go in understanding climate change, but we do know that complex interactions between plants and the climate of Earth go well beyond the Carbon Cycle. Studying the links between life and climate will aid in understanding life's future on

  • Researchers are discovering new ways in which the Earth's oceans have influenced global climate. At the end of the last ice age, north Atlantic ice sheets melted, added fresh water and caused the collapse of the Atlantic Ocean conveyor belt. That should have plunged the

  • If we could make one change to stave off climate change, what would it be? One scientist believes that getting rid of black soot is the answer. Other research shows that fighting climate change with geo-engineering tricks, such as pumping out aerosols to reflect sunlight,
