Researchers warned temperatures across more than 400 sits managed by the National Park stretching from Florida to Alaska have increased at twice the rate as the rest of the country, according to The San Francisco Chronicle. The parks also experienced greater declines in rainfall, with warmer temperatures and drier conditions forecast to continue across many of the parks, bringing harm to mountains, forest,...

For the first time, researchers have developed a data set quantifying what the social cost of carbon -- the measure of the economic harm from carbon dioxide emissions -- will be for the globe's nearly 200 countries. Although much previous research has focused on how rich countries benefit from the fossil fuel economy, while damages accrue primarily to the developing world, the top three counties with the most to lose from climate change are the United States, India and Saudi Arabia -- three major world powers.

A new study suggests the power industry is underestimating how climate change could affect the long-term demand for electricity in the United States. The research describes the limitations of prediction models used by electricity providers and regulators for medium- and long-term energy forecasting. It outlines a new model that includes key climate predictors that researchers say present a more accurate view of how climate change will alter future electricity demands.

Human-caused climate change has exposed US national parks to conditions hotter and drier than the rest of the nation, says a new study quantifying for the first time the magnitude of climate change on all 417 parks in the system. Without action to limit greenhouse gas emissions, many small mammals and plants may be brought to the brink of extinction by the end of the century, the study shows.
