The price of fighting climate change is even higher than what was estimated in a 2006 study, said British economist Nicholas Stern, who earned an estimated 500,000-dollar Spanish award on Friday for his work.

Hundreds of scientists and climate change experts are vowing to band together to speak out in response to climate change skeptics--a move that some surmise comes in response to the political gains made by the Republican Party in last week's Congressional elections.

Scientists discovered that a decline in solar activity did not lead to an expected cooling of the Earth, a bizarre finding that many think will have repercussions for climate change models. The Sun is known to go through 11-year cycles where activity waxes and wanes. Scientists theorized that during waning phases, the amount of radiation that reaches Earth is far less. A new study was carried out between 2004 and 2007 during a solar waning phase. Researchers found that the amount of energy...
