apple.news/A4bS7lqHOQeqbozqWrx502Q Glacial ice melt in Greenland alone means sea water levels will rise from at least 3 inches to more than 10 inches by the end of this century. If I live my expected life span of 10pm years, I will have witnessed sea level changes that alter the costs and borders of the globe.Continue reading “Zombie Ice Will Not Return”
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.
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”
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”
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”

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”
