Evidence from ice cores in Greenland and Antarctica show how fast the climate has changed in the past. In this era of global warming, you can’t count on a slow, gradual, predictable warming.
Earth Observing System uses satellites to accelerate earth science, oceanography, meteorology and global change.
If we put up a giant umbrella to shield the Earth from global warming, what will happen to plant productivity?
How do current conditions compare to past predictions of the effects of global warming? Are living on a warming planet?
New study links long-term changes in salmon population to climate changes.
