A new study, conducted by Richard Muller (a known climate change denier) and other scientists from Berkeley Earth, shows that the Earth has warmed about 2.7 degrees F in the last 250 years, and that this warming closely follows carbon dioxide concentrations.
The proportion of precipitation that falls as snow in Utah from January through March has decreased by 9 percent over the past 50 years due to rising temperatures, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Climate.
Arizona has warmed the fastest of any U.S. state since 1970 at about 0.64 degrees F per decade, and is the fourth fastest warming state since 1912, warming about 0.27 degrees F per decade.
Stream temperatures in the western U.S. are not warming as quickly as scientists expected, according to a new study in Geophysical Research Letters.
Global warming may initially increase plant growth in Arizona grasslands, but then will stunt growth as more time passes, according to a recent Nature Climate Change publication.
Three new analyses on climate extremes together explain how extremes may change in the future, what’s driving them, their impacts on people and ecosystems, and how we can adapt. The most extensive report is from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and it details the current state of knowledge on climate extremes.
New research published in Ecology Letters shows that a single climate parameter, the timing of spring snowmelt, has many different effects on the population growth of the Mormon Fritillar
What had previously been thought—that mountain pine beetles are able to fit two reproductive cycles into a single season due to warming temperatures—has finally been documented by the authors of a new study set to be published in The American Naturalist in May.
