    A heat dome is baking the United States. Here’s why that’s so dangerous

    As climate change makes heat waves more frequent and intense, older adults, pregnant people and others are at higher risk for heat-related symptoms.

  4. Climate

    The Arctic is warming rapidly. These clouds may hold clues as to why

    Climate simulations can’t fully handle towering Arctic thunderclouds. So scientists have been flying a C-130 into and around the clouds to learn more.

    As the Arctic tundra warms, soil microbes likely will ramp up CO2 production

    Experiments in mini greenhouses show how the tiny organisms lurking underground in a "sleepy biome" could be a contributor to climate change.

    A new approach to fighting wildfires combines local knowledge and AI

    Land managers in the western United States are using potential operational delineations, or PODS, to prepare for — and take advantage of — wildfires.

    A ruinous hailstorm in Spain may have been supercharged by warming seas

    Giant hail that pummeled northeast Spain in August 2022 could not have formed without climate change, computer simulations suggest.
