Arctic sea ice could vanish within 10 years as it is melting much faster than previously believed, thanks to global warming, warn scientists, claiming that the process is 50 percent faster than the current estimates.
New satellites being operated by the European Space Agency paint a grim picture of 900 cubic km of ice already having melted over the last year.
This is 50 percent higher than ... read more >>
Much ado has been made about the loss of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean by the Gang Green, those global warming hysterics who want us to fundamentally reorganize human civilization based on a statistically marginal temperature rise planetwide in the 20th century. But the Antarctic proved a tougher nut to crack, as Antarctica is a continent surrounded by sea and that continent has been gaining ice. W ... read more >>
An underground network of pipes lies around the area where Turkish state energy company TPAO was drilling, leading to villagers’ fears that chemicals from the drilling process or construction may have leached into their watersupply.
Two dignitaries from the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) visited the area several days ago and took water samples for testing at a laboratory in Turkey ... read more >>
The historic weather season has helped Citizens Energy Group -- the utilities company that regulates the reservoirs and supplies much of Central Indiana with water -- solidify its water emergency plans and develop safeguards should a drought return. ... read more >>
Scientists using NASA satellite data and climate models have projected drier conditions likely will cause increased fire activity across the United States in coming decades. Other findings about U.S. wildfires, including their amount of carbon emissions and how the length and strength of fire seasons are expected to change under future climate conditions, were also presented Tuesday at the annual ... read more >>
The 2012 Atlantic Hurricane season officially came to a close on Friday, after four land-falling storms left coastal communities in tatters from Louisiana to New York. For the third straight season there were 19 named storms in the Atlantic, which is the third-highest level of storm activity observed since 1851. Ten of those storms went on to become hurricanes, only one of which, Hurricane Isaac, ... read more >>
The agency and the fire service have been using high volume pumps to remove surface water which continues to threaten homes and businesses. ... read more >>
Thawing of permafrost expected to cause significant additional global warming, not yet accounted for in climate predictions
The thawing of permafrost (Frozen Soil) is expected to release large quantities of carbon dioxide and methane that is not accounted to in the current global warming models. ... read more >>
Stalactites in a cave near the Red Sea are helping climatologists refine their predictions of sea level rise – and it looks as if previous estimates were dead on.
Sea level rise is one of the most harmful consequences of climate change, and its effects are already being felt in coastal cities like New YorkMovie Camera.
Historic changes in sea level can indicate how it will change in future. ... read more >>
Picture all of Manhattan covered in a layer of ice that's 11,800 feet thick -- eight times the height of the Empire State Building. That's the net amount of ice that melts each year in Greenland, according to Princeton University researcher Christopher Harig.
And the rate of ice melt is accelerating.
That annual melt figure comes from a study published online today (Nov. 19) in the journal ... read more >>
