Years ago, many climate scientists talked about global cooling, yet today they discuss global warming. Here’s some of the science behind the climate debate.
Why is there so much media buzz about the polar vortex? How is a polar vortex related to blizzards, nor’easters, and winter weather? What you need to know.
Hypercanes are the most severe hurricanes that could ever form. Just how high could the winds of such a mega hurricane be? The answer might blow your socks off!
Climate change is always a hot topic these days. Find out what climate change, global warming, and global cooling mean for you.
The ozone layer is found in the stratosphere and helps protect us from ultra violet light. Find out about the ozone hole and how nations around the world are helping to fix it.
When New England fall colors arrive earlier than usual, is it a sign of climate change?
Find out what the Montreal Protocol does and how it has played a vital role in protecting the ozone layer in our atmosphere.
The Clean Air Act is a set of United States laws and codes that aim to reduce air pollution and regulate air quality.
The Little Ice Age brought about a major climate change and centuries of cooler weather — including the ‘Year Without A Summer.’
The eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull may affect the global climate. If it does, it wouldn’t be the first time a volcano contributed to climate change. The 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo actually helped to lower temperatures!
World climate change means the many of the beautiful places we know and love are changing. Now’s your chance to see some of the 100 places Newsweek magazine thinks may soon look and feel different… or disappear altogether.
There are some more dramatic climate change pictures — check out what’s melting in Glacier National Park in Montana…

Climate changes are occurring rapidly in many parts of the world, causing significant impacts to the homes and well-being of many types of animals. Now, there is a list of 10 animals scientists are monitoring especially closely as the climate change continues.
If you’re concerned about the environment and global warming, then you’ll be glad to know there are very simple things you can do to help protect the tropical rainforest. Here are some ways to stop global warming and save the rainforest.
Snowicane, snowpocalypse, and snowmageddon are all words to describe the big snow blizzard that struck the United States. Perhaps those words are nothing more than hype, but one thing’s for sure: more snow storms are a sign of global warming
NASA’s Atmospheric Infrared Sounder is a device that is able to measure greenhouse gases, giving us more information on the agents that many scientists believe is a key aspect of global warming.
Believe it or not, the effects of global warming could actually cause the next ice age. And it may be sooner than originally thought, according to scientists.
Some scientists believe that another Ice Age will happen again someday in the future. However, miniature ice ages — or short periods of cooling — can occur due to natural events like volcanoes.
The NOAA reports the Arctic ice cap continues to see melting, rising temperatures, and a thawing future. How does this affect the public’s outlook on global warming?
Old ship logs give us a glimpse of our climate’s past. Of course, any look back at the changes our world climate has undergone over hundreds of years is going to spark a debate about global warming.
Yes, people have died while ice fishing in the late Winter, early Spring. The problem is… it’s too hard to determine the thickness of the ice! Here’s what you need to know about walking on thin ice or ice fishing on thin ice.
The weather ultimately determines why and how the leaves turn color each Fall. A small change in the weather can easily affect how colorful the leaves will be. Things such as the amount of moisture in the soil, temperature, and even the length of the days affect what colors the leaves will eventually turn — and even the brightness and hue of those colors.
Who knew that there was a difference between the concepts of alternate fuel and alternate energy? Not many people on Planet Earth! We have made ourselves so dependent upon power from fossil fuel sources, that the entire world is being held captive by a very few oil-rich countries. How did these few sources come to have so
much and other countries so little? They got it by eminent domain — it was on their land when they arrived.
Climate Change is happening, but is it our fault? A recent conference in New York City sought to answer that question. But, the conference was largely ignored by the major media outlets. Why?
