NASA Scientists Have Found Millions of Arctic Methane Hotspots

Scientists are taking to the skies to study methane emissions in the Arctic. In a series of more than 400 airplane rides in 2017, researchers with NASA’s Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment discovered 2 million methane hotspots.Read more...

It's Straight Up Balmy in Antarctica

Picture this: It’s 68 degrees Fahrenheit. You’re comfortably rocking a light denim jacket. You’re sipping a gin and tonic. You’ve got a picnic blanket and a spread of raw veggies and dips. The wind is in your hair. So nice to be in…the Antarctic.Read more...

Pine Island's Massive New Iceberg Is Already Cracking Up

Antarctic has been on one the past few weeks. It reached 65 degrees Fahrenheit last week, a new record high for the continent. Scientists have found warm water creeping farther under its most vulnerable glacier. Other researchers dropped a little remote-operated robot under the same icy “superhighway,” recording eerie…Read more...

Uh Oh, Antarctica Just Set a New Heat Record

It’s positively balmy in Antarctica. The National Meteorological Service of Argentina announced on Twitter that its Esperanza weather station recorded a new high for the continent: 18.3 degrees Celsius (64.9 degrees Fahrenheit). Read more...

Climate Change Is Making It Harder for Polar Bears to Raise Babies

Polar bears are basically mascots of the environmental movement owing to the risks the climate crisis poses to them. And y’all, they’re doing really, really badly!Read more...

Scientists Make First-Ever Observation of Warm Water Undercutting Antarctica's 'Doomsday Glacier'

The climate crisis is causing ice in Antarctica to melt faster than at any other time in recorded history. And scientists just found another troubling sign for Antarctic ice. Record warm water is surging under an Antarctica glacier that’s fate is intertwined with the millions of people who live along the coast.…Read more...

'Goosebumps': Researchers Capture First Video From Under Antarctica's Most Endangered Glacier

Thwaites Glacier is one of the most remote parts of the Antarctic (which is saying a lot) and yet its fate is intimately tied with millions of people around the world. The glacier is the bulwark against ice stored on West Antarctica. If it collapses, it could destabilize the region’s ice and send sea levels spiraling…Read more...

Blame Your Old Air Conditioner for Melting the Arctic

The ozone hole was caused by chemicals formerly used in air conditioners and refrigerators. But new research shows that the same stuff is also behind half of the warming the Arctic experienced between 1955 and 2005.Read more...

Geoengineering Wouldn't Be Enough to Stop Greenland From Melting

When the Greenland ice sheet went into a record meltdown in the summer of 2019, it raised a very terrifying specter of the future. Here was a 12.5-billion-ton mass of ice—one that’s been melting at a quickening pace since the 1980s—melting in a way scientists didn’t expect to happen for decades.Read more...

Antarctic Ice Melt May Have Hit an All-Time High on Christmas Eve

There are signs Antarctica just experienced its highest melt extent ever recorded in the satellite era. The big meltdown hit on Christmas Eve and is bad news for a continent already dealing with a lot. With summer is just getting started there, this is a serious case of Summertime Sadness.Read more...

A Quarter of West Antarctica's Ice Is Now Unstable, Study Finds

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before but the ice is screwed. New findings released on Thursday reveal that a quarter of the ice sheets in West Antarctica, the most vulnerable part of the continent, have destabilized. Ice loss has sped up fivefold across the region’s most imperiled glaciers in just 25 years.Read more...

North America’s Glaciers Are Melting Four Times Faster Than They Were a Decade Ago

Across the world’s icy landscapes, climate change is spurring a major meltdown. That includes the western U.S. and Canada where not only is ice vanishing, but it’s doing so at a more rapid pace than it was just a decade ago, according to a new study released this week in Geophysical Research Letters.
