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.

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”

The Discussion Needs More Voices

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”
