Corals that can fight global warming may one day help fragile reefs

... in 2005, the Caribbean experienced unusually warm weather and a spate of coral deaths caused directly by temperature stress and indirectly by opportunistic infections contracted during the warm period. "Below the waves, the warm temperatures triggered a series of events lethal to coral reefs: massive loss...

UTSA researchers examine effects of global warming on Antarctic

Global 'sunscreen' has likely thinned, report NASA scientists

...urements originally designed to observe clouds and weather systems that date back to 1978. The resulting data show large, short-lived spikes in global aerosols caused by major volcanic eruptions in 1982 and 1991, but a gradual decline since about 1990. By 2005, global aerosols had dropped as much as 20 perce...

Satellites shed light on global warming
