As the Obama administration weans the U.S. off polluting fuels blamed for global warming, energy companies have been sending more of America's unwanted energy leftovers to other parts of the world where they could create even more pollution. Here are five things to know about the issue:
As scientists who have lived and worked in Montana, we understand the scientific principles demonstrating that human activity is rapidly changing our climate. That is why we joined over 100 other scientists across Montana in sending a letter to our top elected officials calling on them to su…
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.

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.
