Sierra Nevada birds move in response to warmer, wetter climate
Birds had different reactions to climate change (from left): The Western bluebird shifted its geographical range in response to both temperature and precipitation changes, while the Anna's hummingbird simply moved away from its climatic niche. The high-elevation Clark's nutcracker tracked temperature in its response, while the low-elevation Bullock's oriole tracked precipitation.

Warming Ocean Contributes to Global Warming
The warming of an Arctic current over the last 30 years has triggered the release of methane, broken down from methane hydrate stored in the sediment beneath the seabed. Scientists at the University of Birmingham, working in collaboration with researchers from the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, Royal Holloway London and IFM-Geomar in Germany have found that more than 250 plumes of bubbles of methane gas are rising from the seabed of the West Spitsbergen continental margin in the Arctic, in a depth range of 150 to 400 metres.

Consulting with Clouds: A Clear Role in Climate Change
July 30, 2009 — Virginia Key — The role of clouds in climate change has been a major question for decades. As the earth warms under increasing greenhouse gases, it is not known whether clouds will dissipate, letting in more of the sun‘s heat energy and making the earth warm even faster, or whether cloud cover will increase, blocking the Sun's rays and actually slowing down global warming.
