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”

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”

Glaciers Melting

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”

Polar Bears Turn to Garbage to Survive

apple.news/ASenHgglBTKCeC736lfLnBQ Better waste management in the North will prevent polar bears from turning to human made trash for survival. They then will adapt in other ways, such as hunting on land instead of at sea. Conflict has happened, and will continue. The direct cause of polar bear scavenging is the loss of sea ice dueContinue reading “Polar Bears Turn to Garbage to Survive”

The Discussion Needs More Voices

apple.news/ACxtId-HGTi2Ux5uwZCh7DQ I’ve been saying it for a while. Maybe for ten years. Indigenous and local voices need to be heard about climate crisis. Indigenous people know the history of the land and the water. And they are the ones living in climate crisis right now. It isn’t a matter of anxiety about the future, butContinue reading “The Discussion Needs More Voices”

The Long Term Damage of Cheap, “Green” Energy

apple.news/AYxNaoCi3S6KmRgUrywEniw “The relatively cheap electrical energy that first supported the Thompson nickel mine — and now feeds an ever-growing, modern provincial economy — is frequently touted as a “green” alternative to fossil fuels, but even prior to Keeyask, earlier dams had changed the river’s flow patterns, affecting beaver and muskrat habitat, disrupting caribou migratory routesContinue reading “The Long Term Damage of Cheap, “Green” Energy”
