Antarctica ice loss is higher than previously thought.

apple.news/AC0nSsJzWQfCOCESm-9rHSQ Glaciers in Antarctica are crumbling at a faster pace, with mess less new ice cover than needed to sustain the glaciers. Glacial ice locks up water, protecting the sea level from rising. As glaciers on the southernmost continent melt, sea levels rise, causing coastal flooding throughout the world.

The Arctic has warmed nearly four times faster than the globe since 1979 | Communications Earth & Environment

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”

The Patrushev Family lays heavy hand on Arctic energy | The Independent Barents Observer

The youngest son in the powerful FSB family is gaining control over key assets on the Russian Arctic shelf. — Read on thebarentsobserver.com/en/industry-and-energy/2022/08/patrushev-family-lays-heavy-hand-arctic-energy As Russia tries to increase its oil drilling presence, these ruthless corporations are drilling and repositioning rigs for higher production. Russia has little interest in sustaining the Arctic if it means aContinue reading “The Patrushev Family lays heavy hand on Arctic energy | The Independent Barents Observer”

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”

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/AiVQI_pnHTF2csY0_itTMXw Poor Freda. All she wants is a nice place to haul out and rest her weary walrus bones. But humans resent her encroachment on their property. Seems to me walruses have first rights on the coasts, and humans should make way.
