Russian media reported on Wednesday that the exhausted-looking animal apparently travelled from Chukotka to the village of Tilichiki on Kamchatka, about 700km (434 miles) south. Environmentalists say the bear may have lost its sense of direction while drifting on an ice floe'Exhau...

PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin says special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation report validated Moscow’s repeated denials of collusion with U.S. between President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Putin, on Mueller report: 'We said from the start it would find nothing'

U.S. Attorney General William Barr said in a summary released last month that Mueller had found no evidence of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia in the election. Putin, speaking at an Arctic forum in the Russian city of St Petersburg, said on Friday that Mueller's findings were predictable for Moscow. "That it (Mueller's inquiry) would finish in that way - like a mountain giving birth to a mouse as they say - was clear to us in advance.

Putin declines to say if he wants Donald Trump to be re-elected

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday declined to say if he wanted to see U.S. President Donald Trump re-elected next year, citing a long list of disagreements with the Trump administration. Putin, speaking at an Arctic forum in the Russian city of St Petersburg, said the question of Trump's possible re-election was a matter for the American people. Putin in July last year said he had wanted Trump to win the 2016 U.S. presidential election because he had spoken of wanting to repair U.S.-...

How a Sea Ice Meltdown Is Disrupting Life in Coastal Alaska

The tournament takes place on the expanse of shore ice that usually extends miles off the town’s banks over…Read more...

The Bering Sea Should Be Frozen Right Now. It Isn't.

Humans are living through a dramatic transformation of the planet's surface due to climate change, with the most obvious sign being the rapid decline in Arctic sea ice. And now, imaging has revealed perhaps a new chapter in that decline: The Bering Sea, which under normal circumstances should remain frozen-over until May, is almost entirely free of sea ice in early April.Part of what makes this event so stunning, as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) pointed out in a ...

NATO chief tells Congress of ‘serious’ alliance divisions

By ROBERT BURNS WASHINGTON — In the first address to Congress by a NATO head, Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday acknowledged serious divisions within the alliance and called for bigger defense budgets to cope with global challenges such as Russian assertiveness, the core reason NATO was created in Washington 70 years ago this week. “We have to be frank,” Stoltenberg said before a joint meeting of Congress. “Questions are being asked on both sides of the Atlantic about the strength of our partnership...

Judge says Trump can’t re-open Arctic waters that Obama closed to drilling (ars technica)

(credit: Getty Images) On Friday, a federal judge ruled that President Trump could not re-authorize drilling in Arctic waters after President Obama removed those waters from drilling in 2016. If the Alaskan judge's ruling withstands appeal, it would mean that the Trump Administration would have to seek approval from Congress to re-open federal waters north of Alaska to oil and...

Satellite photos show how pitiful ice cover is in the Arctic right now

Happy early spring. This is the time of year that Arctic sea ice reaches its greatest size, freezing over the vast northern ocean. But in 2019, this ice cover — called the maximum ice extent — is meager, particularly in the usually ice-clad Bering Sea.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released a comparison of Bering and Chukchi sea ice in 2014 (a normal year) versus the maximum sea ice extent this year. As you can see, where there is supposed to be ice, there is a grea...

The Transpolar Drift is faltering -- sea ice is now melting before it can leave the nursery

The dramatic loss of ice in the Arctic is influencing sea-ice transport across the Arctic Ocean. As experts from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research report in a new study, today only 20 percent of the sea ice that forms in the shallow Russian marginal seas of the Arctic Ocean actually reaches the Central Arctic, where it joins the Transpolar Drift; the remaining 80 percent of the young ice melts before it has a chance to leave its 'nursery.'

A slippery slope: How climate change is reshaping the Arctic landscape

Increasing ground temperatures in the Arctic are indicators of global climate change, but until recently, areas of cold permafrost were thought to be relatively immune to severe impacts. A new study by Antoni Lewkowicz, a professor in the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics at the University of Ottawa and published in the journal Nature Communications, however, shows that areas of cold permafrost can be vulnerable to rising summer temperatures.

Outdoor Updates: Drilling ban restored + Hellbender sightings

A federal judge restores Obama-era drilling ban On Friday, a federal judge in Alaska threw out President Trump’s order to revoke an Obama-era ban on oil and gas drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, calling the order illegal. The judge’s ruling protects 128 million acres of federal waters from drilling, including 98 percent of the Arctic Ocean and undersea canyons in the Atlantic that stretch from the Chesapeake Bay to New England. The decision could impact a five-year leasing plan the...

The project will mark the first time a large passenger vessel has been converted to run on Liquified Biogas (LBG) – a fossil-free, renewable gas produced from organic waste, such as food waste – including, notably – rotting fish. The difficulty of converting an existing passenger vessel and meeting the nece...

The world's 'doomsday seed vault' is built to store every crop on the planet, but the icy area that protects it is at risk

The northernmost town in the world, Longyearbyen, is located in the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, just 650 miles from the North Pole. The Arctic town is home to the Global Seed Vault, often called the "doomsday seed vault": a structure that stores duplicate seeds of nearly every known crop on the planet. Longyearbyen's permafrost should ensure that these seeds remain frozen even without electricity. But that permafrost is starting to melt due to rising Arctic temperatures, putting the ...
