  • Northern California gets a big drink, but the state is still thirsty

    Northern California gets a big drink, but the state is still thirsty
    The storm system that soaked much of Northern California over the weekend didn't end the state's punishing drought. But it just may have kept it out of the record books. "We're out of the cellar, I think," said chief state hydrologist Maury Roos, a...
  • Want to cut Arctic warming in half? Curb emissions now, study says

    Want to cut Arctic warming in half? Curb emissions now, study says
    Global warming is changing the Arctic so quickly that experts say we should expect an ice-free Arctic Ocean in the summer within just a few decades. But a group of scientists says there is a way to spare the Arctic from more disastrous climate change....
  • Sharks may hold key to hurricane forecasts

    Sharks may hold key to hurricane forecasts
    They're called ocean weathermen. More than 750 sharks, tarpon, tuna and billfish, fitted with satellite-linked tags, are providing scientists with data on temperature and salinity at various depths in the Atlantic, Gulf and Caribbean. It's information...
  • 'Cannibal' CME hits Earth: Storm warning issued for space

    'Cannibal' CME hits Earth: Storm warning issued for space
    A storm warning has been issued for space, where a "cannibal" coronal mass ejection grabbed the attention of space-weather watchers. The sun -- at a peak of activity in the 11-year solar cycle -- hurled a pair of CMEs that reached Earth early Saturday...
  • U.S. issues alert for El Niño watch

     U.S. issues alert for El Niño watch
    U.S. government forecasters say odds are increasing that El Niño, an ocean-warming pattern that alters weather across the globe, will develop later this year. Conditions in the eastern tropical Pacific have shifted enough that the National Oceanic and...
  • El Niño could return to California next winter, forecasters say

    El Niño could return to California next winter, forecasters say
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Center activated its alert system Thursday to issue an El Niño watch. The alert means that conditions in the eastern tropical Pacific are favorable enough that El Niño has a more than a 50% chance of...

  • El Niño may return late this year, experts say

    El Niño, nature's most powerful influence on weather around the globe, has been in a lull for two years. But indications suggest that could change as early as fall. Since spring 2012, the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean has not warmed enough to create an...

    New idea to kill hurricanes: wind turbines
    After dozens of nonsensical proposals to kill hurricanes with everything from nuclear bombs to cat litter, finally an idea that might work: Enormous wind turbines placed offshore from storm vulnerable cities. But costs in the trillions and environmental...
  • Toxins released by oil spills send fish hearts into cardiac arrest

    Toxins released by oil spills send fish hearts into cardiac arrest
    Scientists have cracked a cellular biology mystery underlying a harmful effect oil spills have on fish: irregular heartbeats that can lead to cardiac arrest. In studying the effects of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill on bluefin tuna spawning in the...
