HELENA — Montana utility regulators dropped a proposal Tuesday to spend $3,000 to hire a former University of Montana law professor known for his conservative views to point out any constitutional problems with proposed federal regulations to reduce carbon dioxide pollution from power plants.
Global warming and an ice age often appear as a contradiction that can be due to improper verbiage. Unusual changes in global temperatures create imbalances in global weather. The warmer certain parts of our earth become, the more likely volcanoes will erupt. Also, oceans evaporate at higher…
Acting with the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation as our guide, hunters and anglers have been leading conservation advocates in Montana for decades. Our efforts have helped establish unmatched hunting and fishing traditions that form one of the cornerstones to Montana’s way of li…
MISSOULA — Climate change is a bit like the weather: Everybody talks about it, but few can do anything to change it.
Montanans need to look no farther than their own state to see the effects of global warming, a University of Montana professor said Thursday.
WASHINGTON — In a shift in strategy, the company that wants to build an oil pipeline from western Canada to Texas said Tuesday that the project will have no measurable effect on global warming.
MISSOULA — Just as 40,000-some people rallied on the National Mall in the Washington, D.C. to demand action against climate change, a multi-generational crowd in Missoula gathered at the Xs on Sunday with the same mission.
GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Big changes are in store for the nation's forests as global warming increases wildfires and insect infestations, and generates more frequent floods and droughts, the U.S. Department of Agriculture warns in a report released Tuesday.
There’s been quite a stink over farting, belching farm animals ruining the planet, and professor Frank Mitloehner wants to clear the air.
Dr. Frank Mitloehner delivered a speech called "Clearing the Air: Agriculture's Contribution to Climate Change" at the Montana Farm Bureau Annual Convention on Monday, November 12, 2012.
CASPER, Wyo. — Two companies will begin pumping carbon dioxide into an oil field near Casper this fall in an attempt to revive production.
Snow covers the rocks on the North Fork of the Shoshone River. Rising temperatures noted in a new study on the Shoshone National Forest could start runoff earlier in the season, resulting in reduced water flows in summer.
CODY, Wyo. — Summer visitors to the Shoshone National Forest and Yellowstone National Park could benefit from a warming climate, though fires would probably increase, water would run short by season’s end, and some species could vanish from the landscape.
Jason Blackstock was working in nanotechnology research for Hewlett-Packard when he realized that although he loved scientific research, he was more interested in figuring out how science affects the decisions society makes. After getting his doctorate, the Canadian-born physicist went to st…
CODY, Wyo. — Predictions of larger and more frequent fires across the Shoshone National Forest and other possible consequences of a warming climate are expected to play a factor in the agency’s efforts to manage the forest in the coming years.
Members of the Bighorn Basin Coring Project label a core sample drilled last summer near Basin, Wyo. The samples are now at the Bremen Core Repository in Germany, where scientists hope to unlock the mysteries of the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum.
CODY, Wyo. — As the planet enters a new phase of climate change, scientists in two countries are working with core samples drilled in Wyoming to understand what caused a pattern of runaway warming, sometimes called the “fever period,” 56 million years ago.
A new EPA report on global warming by facility released Wednesday shows that PPL Montana's Colstrip plant was the No. 8 producer of greenhouse gas in the U.S., with 17.1 million metric tons of greenhouse gases. This is an aerial view of the plan from May 2003.
WORLAND, Wyo. -- Drilling samples collected across the Bighorn Basin this summer have been shipped to Germany, where researchers will begin to study the rock, looking for clues surrounding one of the greatest earth warming cycles in the age of mammals.
CHEYENNE — Scientists who monitor the effects of global warming are watching glaciers shrink all over the world, but this year could be an exception in parts of the Rocky Mountains.
