LINCOLN, Nebraska - Gov. Dave Heineman has canceled a Legislature-approved study on climate change, saying it would duplicate research work by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
WASHINGTON - Hard-to-predict sudden changes to Earth's environment are more worrisome than climate change's bigger but more gradual impacts, a panel of scientists advising the federal government concluded Tuesday.
FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Ounce for ounce, methane has an effect on global warming more than 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide, and it's leaking from the Arctic Ocean at an alarming rate, according to new research by scientists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
FORT COLLINS, Colorado - A well-known hurricane forecast program at Colorado State University faces potential closure after losing much of its funding.

LARAMIE, Wyoming - The University of Wyoming's King Air research aircraft will benefit from a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
AUSTIN, Texas - Some social conservatives have urged the Texas Board of Education to approve new science books that de-emphasize lessons on evolution and climate change, but the edits they seek appeared on Wednesday to lack enough support to succeed.
DETROIT - The moose population in Michigan's Upper Peninsula is growing more slowly than before, possibly because of conditions related to a warming climate, scientists say.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida - NASA's newest robotic explorer, Maven, rocketed toward Mars on Monday on a quest to unravel the ancient mystery of the red planet's radical climate change.
