Rather than growing like it should in winter, sea ice off Alaska has been shrinking dramatically

Meanwhile, ice losses elsewhere allowed a Russian tanker to make the first winter crossing of the Arctic — without an icebreaker The Bering Sea off Alaska's west coast has just experienced a shocking loss of ice over a 10-day period — in winter.

As Trump seeks climate funding cuts, new findings and the U.S. intelligence community highlight serious climate risks

New research suggests that large parts of the world are headed for record-breaking extreme weather events.

A NASA satellite spotted this strangely prominent pattern of long, sinuous clouds over the Pacific

The conspiracy-minded will shout "chemtrails." Of course that's nonsense. But just what is creating these clouds?

Does this giant blob of warm water moving deep within the Pacific Ocean herald the end of La Niña?

La Niña is still with us and influencing drought and other weather patterns in the United States and elsewhere.

Sea ice just set another record low—in winter—offering new evidence that the era of the 'New Arctic' is here

And what's happening in the New Arctic is not staying there Another month, yet another record low for Arctic sea ice extent in a warming world.

The Naked Sun — Where Have All Its Spots Gone?

The Sun recently decided to go naked for awhile, as is evident from this image acquired by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

Warm temperatures plus a lack of precipitation have taken a very heavy toll on snowpack in most of the western U.S.

Thanks especially to warm temperatures, plus a lack of precipitation, the snowpack in most of the Western United States is in bad shape right now — nowhere worse than in California's Sierra Nevada range.

Both an F-18 fighter pilot and satellites spied this cool swirling vortex of clouds off the Southern California coast

Check out this image captured Thursday by NASA's Aqua satellite. See that swirling vortex, complete with a clear eye?

Polar bears filmed themselves while hunting seals on sea ice, revealing why they are so at risk from global warming

As with our planet as a whole, if you want to know the fate of polar bears in a warming world, you need to follow the energy.

Last year was downright biblical when it came to weather and climate disasters — particularly in the United States

I'm a bit late to this story, but it's significant enough that I didn't want to let it pass by without posting something about it.

While parts of the U.S. are wet and frigid, the Southwest is bone dry and still waiting for winter to arrive

A wide area around the Four Corners region of the U.S. Southwest is now in severe drought — and the three-month outlook is grim While downtown Boston streets were flooding and then freezing as a result of the powerful bomb cyclone that pummeled the U.S.

On the very day the bomb cyclone exploded, we learned that 2017 was one of the very warmest on record

One verdict on global warming in 2017 is in: Warmest year with no temperature boost from El Niño, and second warmest overall Today brought another lesson about the difference between weather and climate.

The view from space as the so-called 'bomb cyclone' exploded into a dangerous winter storm

Last night, my daughter called me from New York City to ask worriedly about the so-called bomb cyclone that was threatening the northeastern United States.

Curiously aligned cloud formations stream across the Atlantic as Arctic air blows above warm ocean waters

Baby, it's cold outside! If you live pretty much anywhere in Canada, or in the United States east of the Rockies, that wonderful song from the 1940s pretty much sums up the conditions as 2017 draws to a close. And when revelers watch the ball drop in New York City's Times Square on New Years Eve, they will have to endure forecast temperatures of 10°F – with a wind chill of -5°F.

Right before Christmas, a gargantuan black fissure opened on the Sun. It was shaped like a question mark.

It doesn't really take much imagination to see the dark question mark forming and dissipating across most of the Sun's surface in the animation above.

Say hi to the GOES-East satellite—already a 'game changer' for tracking threats like wildfires and extreme weather

A brand spanking new advanced U.S. satellite is now fully operational and monitoring weather, wildfires, lightning and other phenomena.

Watch California's Thomas Fire metastasize into a monster likely made more ferocious by climate change

An animation of satellite imagery offers a revealing perspective on the day-by-day growth of the Thomas Fire "Firefighters achieved huge successes yesterday during a BIG firefight to hold their line & SAVED hundreds of homes in Montecito." That was the news this morning about the horrific Thomas Fire burning in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, as described by the Public Information Officer of the Ventura County Fire Department.

A major federal report finds that the speed of Arctic warming is unprecedented in 2,000 years

The peer-reviewed report involving 85 scientists finds that the Arctic environmental system has reached a "new normal" It's a common refrain doubters of human-caused global warming: Temperatures now are no higher than they were during the Medieval Warm Period from about 800 to 1400 AD.

This is among the most appalling satellite images of a wildfire that I've ever seen

The obscuring smoke from the Thomas Fire — now 70 percent as large as L.A. — smothers a large swath of SoCal's coast.

An animation of nighttime satellite images shows the start and breathtakingly rapid spread of the first SoCal wildfires

A second animation shows the giant smoke plume from the Thomas Fire illuminated by this week's supermoon as it streams over the Pacific Carl Engelking, Discover's online editor, has put together a gallery of scarily dramatic images of the SoCal wildfires as seen from space.
