In recent decades, the warming in the Arctic has been much faster than in the rest of the world, a phenomenon known as Arctic amplification. Numerous studies report that the Arctic is warming either twice, more than twice, or even three times as fast as the globe on average. Here we show, by using severalContinue reading “The Arctic has warmed nearly four times faster than the globe since 1979 | Communications Earth & Environment”

Climate Dynamics Are More Involved Than Commonly Thought
apple.news/AZnSwao9QR1CpXpGu-sedrA The expert views expressed in this article seem simplistic. Loss of sea ice – more wildfires. Increments of global warming caused by the burning of fossil fuels and by other factors such as industrial release of warm water are major principals of this climate. There is no evidence that this is a natural cycleContinue reading “Climate Dynamics Are More Involved Than Commonly Thought”
1922 Report Was Altered Later
apple.news/Atnm2nd_PT-iazyqcRz14nQ Although a report about Arctic climate change was filed by the U.S. government in 1922, a later addition seemed to predict rising sea levels and the flooding of cities. This addition has nothing to do with the original report. Also, great short video about endangered polar bears. We will continue to lose sea iceContinue reading “1922 Report Was Altered Later”
Desperate Polar Bear Turns to Humans for Help

More glacial melt, higher sea levels
apple.news/ArkFpjp-5SeGcYpjHeoXdVA The correlation is measurable. As Arctic ice caps melt, the sea level rises, along with salinity dropping. Greenland and Svalbard, among other glacial land masses, are losing fresh water ice at faster rates than before the 2000s. It will take drastic measures, such as eliminating carbon emissions, to stop this dangerous trend.
When walruses and humans collide…

apple.news/A8GtFNxAGSMuXfP9uZUpH9g “Scientists have been worried about Greenland’s glaciers melting for years now, especially because the Arctic is warming up faster than anywhere else on earth due to climate change. Last August, it rained for the first time in recorded history over the Greenland Summit Camp, a research station that’s near the frozen top of theContinue reading “Glaciers Melting”
