Europe's seas are changing at an unprecedented rate, much faster than climate scientists anticipated. Seawater temperatures have been rising around 10-times faster than average over the past 25 years, while wind speeds have also been increasing. The combination of rising sea levels and stronger winds has resulted in the loss of 15% of Europe's coasts, according to recently completed EU-sponsored marine research. Read More

50 Million Year Old Fossil Clams Shed Light on El

One current climate theory suggests that global warming could result in El Nino conditions becoming permanent as opposed to occurring in prevailing two- to seven-year cycles. New research based on a study of a long-lived species of fossilized clam that lived of the coast of Antarctica indicates that was not the case during the early Eocene, when the Earth was as warm as it's been in the last 65 million years.Read More
