The “blob” of hotter ocean water that killed sea lions and other marine life in 2014 and 2015 may become permanent.
Only 2012 had less sea ice coverage, scientists say, as climate change takes its toll in the region.
Scientists know climate change has made storms wetter. There’s evidence that it makes some slower, too. It all adds up to trouble when they hit land.
Open water and rain, rather than ice and snow, are becoming typical of the region, a new study has found.
Engineers say most dams in the United States, designed decades ago, are unsuited to a warmer world and stronger storms.
An analysis of satellite imagery from the past four decades suggests that global warming has increased the chances of storms reaching Category 3 or higher.
