Rain to replace snow in the Arctic as climate heats, study finds

Climate models show switch will happen decades faster than previously thought, with ‘profound’ implicationsRain will replace snow as the Arctic’s most common precipitation as the climate crisis heats up the planet’s northern ice cap, according to research.Today, more snow falls in the Arctic than rain. But this will reverse, the study suggests, with all the region’s land and almost all its seas receiving more rain than snow before the end of the century if the world warms by 3C. Pledges made by ...

The Arctic Paradox: why the Arctic is caught in the conflicting pressures of global climate change

In October 2021, the British Antarctic Survey launched a new immersive exhibition called Polar Zero in the city of Glasgow to coincide with the COP26 conference between 1 and 12 November. The ice-covered poles have been used repeatedly to convey the urgency of the climate emergency. Melting ice, thawing permafrost, and retreating glaciers are very visible reminders of what is happening on our warming Earth. The exhibition features an Antarctic ice core containing trapped ice bubbles dating from ...

A year after a crippling fire, one of the Coast Guard's most important ships is on a rare trip around North America

US Coast Guard icebreaker Healy in the Arctic Ocean, August 31, 2009. US Coast Guard/Petty Officer Patrick Kelley Last year, US Coast Guard icebreaker Healy was crippled by a fire in one of its propulsion motors. After replacing that motor, Healy is on a rare trip through the Northwest Passage and around North America. The trip comes as climate change and geopolitical competition make the Arctic increasingly busy. In August 2020, the US Coast Guard icebreaker Healy was forced to return to ...

More airlines are choosing single-aisle jets for flights from North America to Europe - see the full evolution of jet-powered transatlantic flying

Widebody vs narrowbody aircraft Boeing, Airbus Widebody aircraft have historically dominated the transatlantic market due to their high capacity and low costs. With the rise of long-range narrowbodies, many airlines are opting to put single-aisle jets on flights across the pond. Narrowbody jets are preferable for their high efficiency and profitability for low-demand city pairs. For decades, transatlantic flying had been dominated by wide-body jets designed for high capacity long-haul ...

New Research Confirms That the Vikings Landed in North America 471 Years Before Columbus & Exactly 1,000 Years Ago

“We have to celebrate Columbus because he discovered America.” “No he didn’t. Leif Erikson got there first.” “Nuh-uh.” “Uh-huh….” etc… I paraphrase here from the halls of my elementary school circa sometime in the late 20th century, when many of us were convinced the first Europeans to set foot on the continent were not the Spanish and their bloody-minded, treasure-seeking Italian captain, but what we thought of as bloody-minded, treasure-seeking Vikings. Which side was right? Our grade-...

The Nazis were already shooting at US warships months before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor

US Navy destroyer USS Reuben James on the Hudson River in New York, April 29, 1939. US Navy/Wikimedia Commons On October 31, 1941, USS Reuben James became the first US warship sunk by enemy action in World War II. It was the culmination of months of fighting between the US and German navies in the Atlantic. The sinking didn't bring the US into the war, but it did solidify US leaders' support for the Allies. Around 5:30 a.m. on October 31, 1941, an explosion ripped through the US Na...

Icebergs Are Swimming Sculptures

Since 2003, photographer Olaf Otto Becker has been documenting the decline of the glaciers and ice sheet in Greenland. Greenland’s ice sheet is melting. Regularly, like the ticking of a clock, huge, new icebergs from the edges of the glacier plunge into the ocean each day with a thunderous boom and a roar. Our planet breathes. The accelerated melting of the ice is nothing more than one of our Earth’s compensatory reactions. Everything is constantly in motion. Even landscapes are changin...

Vikings beat Columbus across the Atlantic by 470 years. Astrophysics and tree rings helped scientists nail down the timeline.

L'Anse aux Meadows was a North American landing point for the Vikings and is now part of Canada's National Park system. The indentations in the earth show evidence of rows of Viking houses. Gail Shotlander/Getty Images The Vikings inhabited Newfoundland 470 years before Columbus landed in North America, research found. Scientists previously dated a Viking settlement in Canada to the 11th century. But tree-ring dating and astrophysics revealed that Vikings were there in 1021. Histor...

5 billion people could face water shortage by 2050: UN

More than five billion people globally are expected to face a shortage of water by 2050, a United Nations agency report has warned. According to the report, the biggest losses are occurring in Antarctica and Greenland, but many highly populated lower latitude locations are experiencing significant water losses in areas that are traditionally providing water supply, with major ramifications for water security.

The island has rare elements needed for electric cars and wind turbines. But protesters are blocking one project, signaling that mining companies must tread carefully. From a report: This huge, remote and barely habited island is known for frozen landscapes, remote fjords and glaciers that heave giant sheets of ice into the sea. But increasingly Greenland is known for something else: rare minerals. It's all because of climate change and the world's mad dash to accelerate the development of green...

The jet stream has started an unprecedented shift north, which could wreak havoc on weather in the US and Europe

The German village of Insul in Rhineland was largely destroyed after rainfall caused devastating flooding in July. Boris Roessler/Picture Alliance/Getty Images The polar jet stream is a band of wind that separates cold Arctic air from warmer air to the south. A new study suggests that as the Earth warms, this band is moving north and out of position. That could cause more droughts and heat waves in southern Europe and the eastern US.
