Global warming is often thought of as, well, a global phenomenon. But the world is actually warming at different rates ― and new research from a University of Hawaii (UH)professor is helping shed light on why.
Global warming could drive a much more dramatic increase in sea levels than current projections suggest, scientists say, citing a rise of 10 meters (33 feet) during Earth's last warming interlude more than 100,000 years ago.
Japan’s economy grew slightly faster than initially estimated in the first quarter, thanks to stronger capital spending, but analysts say global trade tensions remain a drag on growth and raise risks to the outlook for the export-reliant nation.
Climate change is eliminating giant chunks of ice from Greenland, a massive island and autonomous Danish territory between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans, at such a speed that the melt has already made a significant contribution to sea level rise, according to a new study.
Glaciers in western North America, excluding Alaska, are melting four times faster than in the previous decade, with changes in the jet stream exacerbating the longer-term effects of climate change, according to a new study.
