Sure, you might have to deal with a little snow this weekend in the Northeast. But the reward on the other side is near-record warmth next week.
May I present to you the whale cam.
For years, the war against smog and bad air quality has been waged through regulations on tail pipes, refineries, and other obvious sources of pollution. Those regulations have targeted a host of volatile organic compounds and other gases that directly or indirectly cause air pollution, one of the biggest risks to…
The small island nation of Tonga’s parliament is supposed to come into session on March 1, but lawmakers are frantically scrambling to find a new home after the century-old parliament building was reduce to rubble earlier this week. Cyclone Gita roared ashore with 145-mph winds and made a direct hit on Nukuʻalofa, the…
What does it take for a $260-billion multinational corporation like Exxon to catch a break these days?
If you want to record a blue whale’s song, you’re going to have to work for it. You can’t just pop into the recording studio or hold your iPhone underwater.
EPA chief Scott Pruitt may garner a lot of headlines as he attempts to dismantle the agency from within. But his underlings are doing a lot of the heavy lifting behind the scenes, and many are cut from the same cloth as the man at the top.
The iceberg that broke away from the Larsen C ice shelf last summer opened up access to an ecosystem that hadn’t seen the light of day in up to 120,000 years. There’s a small window of time for scientists to examine that ecosystem before sunlight and new water change it.
“Day Zero” sounds like something out of a dystopian science fiction novel, but it’s a reality that Cape Town, South Africa, could face in a few short months. A historic stretch of drought years has turned the city’s reservoirs into deserts.
Last fall, the cities of Oakland and San Francisco sued oil behemoth Chevron for billions of dollars because of its role in causing climate change. Chevron is, of course, fighting the case, but if it loses, it wants to take down another oil company with it.
Hope everyone enjoyed California’s drought-free year because dry conditions are back in a big, bad way.
America’s treasures are up for sale and the only thing you need to get them is the president’s phone number.
The eruption at Mount Mayon in the Philippines looks like that volcano you drew as a kid.
West Antarctica’s glaciers are the weakest link in the icy armor that surrounds the massive southern ice sheet. A study published in the Annals of Glaciology last month adds to the pile of crap news about how these glaciers, which extend out over water that’s being warmed by climate change, are susceptible to melting…
The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website states that its mission is “to protect human health and the environment.” You would think this would be clear to EPA head Scott Pruitt, and yet at a Senate oversight hearing on Tuesday—Pruitt’s first as administrator—he seemed far more interested in talking jobs and…
Just in time for Super Bowl Sunday, Arctic air will descend on the central U.S. as a trail of sub-zero temperatures marches down the the Canadian Rockies and parks over the Midwest. It will be short-lived and not quite as severe as the early January cold snap, but it also arrives at an inopportune time for football’s…
On Sunday night, the president talked with Piers Morgan about his climate change views and the Paris Agreement. The widely-reported results were not good. They were also wholly unsurprising and we need to stop pretending like they are. In fact, we need to stop asking the president what he thinks about climate change.
Even before they made landfall, 2017's major hurricanes—Harvey, Maria and Irma—were already causing billions in damage. A new update from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) makes clear just how costly this trio of terrors will end up being, estimating that all three storms clock in among the…
