Climate change is even worse than we expected - so is now the time for conservationists to take extreme measures to stem the extinction crisis?
Colonialism, political turmoil and unmet citizen promises all lie behind the rise of attacks on foreign-run fossil fuel plants in Mozambique.
An accurate seafloor map can improve oceanographic and climate models, secure marine navigation, inform defence operations, and guide environmental decisions.
These giant predators are helping solve the mystery of Earth's cooling shift some 50 million years ago.
Which is worse, dry heat or wet heat? Both, says an exercise physiologist.
Rain near Japan triggered a heat wave in North America. To know our future, we have a lot to learn about what drives extreme weather.
Two new NASA missions – VERITAS and DAVINCI+ – are headed to Venus. The missions will use radar and a probe to learn about Earth's hard-to-study and potentially prophetic neighbor.
Using remnants of fossilized trees, scientists and an artist figured out what the forest looked like long before humans existed.
'Thirsty air' can create rapid and devastating drought – new research offers hope we might be able to see it coming in advance.
As public funding disappears, corporations have moved to the head of the table of higher education.
The US is shifting to a new set of climate 'normals' – data sets averaged over the past 30 years. But normal is a relative concept in a time of climate change.
Installing solar panels over California's 4,000 miles of canals could generate less expensive, renewable energy, save water, fight climate change – and offer a solution for the thirsty American West.
Institutional problems make it difficult to satisfy livestock and crop farmers' interests, already in contest over agricultural resources.
With research that offers new insights, there is increased hope for improved climate predictions and better preparation for severe weather conditions.
New research shows that permafrost contains huge amounts of particles that make it easier for cloud moisture to freeze. Thawing permafrost is releasing these ice-nucleating particles.
Food farmed in tropical and Mediterranean climates comes at a higher cost to biodiversity than that grown elsewhere.
A new measure of average weather days in New Zealand puts the temperature on the rise, again.
Trees may be more resilient to future dry spells than scientists first thought.
Climate change is a true existential threat for small island nations, but the US has done little to help the Marshall Islands, which it administered for decades.
