Sometimes, the world can work together for the common gold.
The Arctic is screwed.
Green is not always good.
Emissions work both ways. Well, worked.
Obama hopes the move will be hard to undo for his successor.
Things aren’t looking good up north.
Unless we start reducing fossil fuel consumption drastically and fast, irreversible changes will happen in the Arctic and that will affect all of us.
Searches in the Canadian Arctic have located the H.M.S. Terror, which mysteriously disappeared 168 years ago. The ship was found in pristine condition at the bottom of a bay.
Climate change is creating super corridors for sound waves beneath the Arctic.
The main cause lies in the lack of available data from the Arctic.
A tiny algae could spiral out of control with huge consequences.
In the past decade, ice extent at the two poles couldn’t be more different. The Arctic has seen its 13 smallest maximum ice extents in the last 13 years, and since 1979 lost 620,000 square miles of winter sea ice cover, an area more than twice the size of Texas. Meanwhile, in Antarctica, ice cover has actually increased despite warming trends
Archaeologists working in the arctic have found evidence that ancient humans made it to the arctic some 45,000 years ago.
While the climate talks in Paris are carrying on in full force, it’s important to keep in mind that most of climate change isn’t actually affecting the ones causing it. The polar regions, the south Pacific and small islands are the ones suffering the most. The governments of Nunavut (Canada) and Greenland (Denmark) and the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) released a
Specialists from the University of Cambridge and the University of Colorado estimate that the effects of climate change are going to take a hefty toll on our economy — $326 trillion in damage by the year 2200, roughly $201 million each hour, the Christian Science Monitor reports.
The Arctic is overrun with giant mosquitoes: larger, furrier versions of the mosquitoes we all know and hate. As temperatures in the Arctic continue to rise, these mosquitoes can not only brood for a longer period of time, but they can survive more, in higher numbers. According to a new study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences this is a major problem, and one that will continue to grow as the planet gets hotter.
As the climate changes and temperatures keep growing, you’d assume that polar ice coverage would be shrinking. Not so says a new study by Time that shows how Arctic sea ice volume grew by more than a quarter after the summers of 2013 and 2014.
Greenpeace premiered a video yesterday that campaign’s against Shell’s plans of drilling in the Arctic, but primarily targets a proxy company, Lego. The ad wants to move the Danish toy company to cancel its deal with Shell that will put Lego toys in hundreds of gas stations. In the video, an oil-stricken Arctic depicted in a set comprised of 120kg
We typically tend to associate camels with dry, barren, scorching hot deserts, but the truth is the animals first originated in North America’s Arctic region. A recent discovery of an ancient giant camel in Canada’s High Arctic region adds further weight to this claim, and shows just how adaptable the animal was in its migration from freezing cold to melting
There’s only a month until the melt season theoretically melts and the refreezing time begins, but until then, the polar ice cap has begun shrinking again, and shows no signs of even slowing down the shrinking. “With about a month left in the sea ice melt season, the amount of further ice loss will depend mostly on weather patterns,” the
