A new European study finds that climate change is accelerating the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) from sub-Arctic peatlands, stimulating a fierce cycle of global warming. Northern peatlands contain one-third of the Earth's soil-bound organic carbon, the equivalent of half the CO2 in the entire atmosphere.  An increase of just 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit (1.0 degree Celsius) over current average temperatures would more than double the amount of CO2 released from the peatlands, the study...

A new study found that ocean acidification caused by climate change is stripping away the protective shell of tiny yet vital organisms that absorb huge amounts of carbon pollution from the atmosphere, the AFP reported. The study found that the calcium carapace of microscopic animals called foraminifera living in the Southern Ocean have fallen in weight by a third since the start of the Industrial Revolution. The tiny organisms inhabit the surface waters of oceans around the world and are an...

U.S. scientists say they've determined soybean leaves grown at the high carbon dioxide levels predicted for 2050 respire more than under current CO2 levels. Researchers at the University of Illinois and the U.S. Department of Agriculture said their finding will help fine-tune climate models and could point to increased crop yields as CO2 levels rise. The scientists said plants draw CO2 from the atmosphere and make sugars through the process of photosynthesis. But they also release some CO2...

Scientists are now making an alarming claim that the earth is on the brink of entering another Ice Age that could last the next 100,000 years. They believe a 12,000-year warming period is currently winding down. They say ice cores, ocean sediment cores, the geologic record, and studies of ancient plant and animal populations all demonstrate a regular cyclic pattern of Ice Age patterns, separated by intervening warm interglacials, each lasting about 12,000 years. Experts point out that most...

New research in Australia has found disturbing new evidence to show that the world's coral reefs may be in more immediate danger than some experts previously considered. Australian scientists studied the effects of climate change and rising sea temperatures to find that these events may speed the process of coral bleaching, thus leading to the destruction of the world's reefs. "Previous predictions of coral bleaching have been far too conservative, because they didn't factor in the effect of...
