The atmospheric conditions associated with the unprecedented drought currently afflicting California are "very likely" linked to human-caused climate change, Stanford scientists say.
The risk of severe thunderstorms capable of producing extreme amounts of precipitation and tornadoes is expected to increase in the US, according to new research.
Last July was the hottest month in the history of US weather record keeping, but it may not hold that title for long, researchers from Stanford University claim in a recently-published report.
Higher temperatures could significantly impact California and other premium winegrowing regions of the United States in the next 30 years.
According to a new study on climate change, researchers project that, by 2050, the coolest summers in the tropics and parts of the northern hemisphere will still be hotter than the hottest summers seen since the 1950s if global warming continues its rapid upswing.
The tropics and much of the Northern Hemisphere are likely to experience an irreversible rise in summer temperatures within the next 20 to 60 years if atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations continue to increase.
Exceptionally long heat waves and other hot events could become commonplace in the United States in the next 30 years, according to a new study by Stanford University climate scientists.
Global warming has made the early arrival of spring commonplace across the planet, say climate scientists.
Urban workers could suffer most from climate change as the cost of food drives them into poverty, according to a new study that quantifies the effects of climate on the world's poor populations.
The South Asian summer monsoon - critical to agriculture in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan - could be weakened and delayed due to rising temperatures in the future, according to a recent climate modeling study.
