Unlike severe weather or other anomalies in climate patterns which can often seem like one-off events, these images of a receding glacier offer evidence that detrimental changes to our planet's health do not just lie before us, but are well underway.
While our science-minded assessment of geological systems have deduced that the planet as merely a composite of rocks, liquids and gases, to our our basic senses Earth seems nearly as alive we are -- and there is no shortage of
If the reindeer of northern Scandinavia or Siberia are up to their antlers in snow, it could mean a deeper freeze for North Americans in the subsequent winter season. Scientists from the University of Georgia report in the

Four men from a village in Peru, armed with environmentally-friendly paint, are undertaking one of the most bizarre plans to combat rising temperatures in the Andes--by painting the mountains white. The hope is that more heat will be
Scientists are reporting that Greenland is rising as the large weight of ice pressing down on land is melting. And the country's elevation gains are speeding up. Glacial melt on Greenland is being watched very carefully
After the Arctic and Antarctica, the snow and glaciers of the Himalayas are the largest store of water on the planet. When the ice of this "Third Pole" melts each spring, it supplies the largest rivers in
