Thinning summer cloud cover responsible for Greenland ice melt

Greenland's loss of ice has been the big story in climate-related news lately, and with good reason - a warming climate is responsible. And now we are beginning to understand why this is happening at such an accelerated rate.

Climate change is adversely affecting sea turtles

Swansea - Sea turtles are endangered animals, with the global population in decline. Risks include hunting, for turtle eggs and skin, and now, based on new research, from climate change.

House flies invade warmer Antarctica threatening native species

A mathematician has developed a model that shows the optimal conditions for achieving sustainable urban distribution and cut emissions.

Exxon shareholders vote for historic 'climate change' clause

It's not been the best week for environment news, with President Donald Trump poised to pull out of the Paris climate accord. However, one positive is with shareholders in Exxon Mobil backing a motion for the company to assess the climate change risk.

Tiny seashells show extent of climate change

Future climate change conditions lead to additional to stress marine creatures, and this provides a means for tracking the effects of climate change. The research further shows how changes can throw off the ocean carbon balance.

Sea levels are rising three times faster than previously thought

New scientific analysis has found that the Earth's ocean levels are rising nearly three times faster than they were before 1990, a strong indication that sea level rise is accelerating.

Why the answer is not to plant more trees

Growing plants and trees is not sufficient to counteract emissions from burning fossil fuels, according to a new study. This is because the plantations would need to be so large they would not be economically viable.

This image shows Sagar Camp, the very summit of the Barnes Ice Cap and the remains of a glaciological camp occupied in 1963 that was hurriedly abandoned. The camp has been buried by snow ever since and never seen before now. That it has just melted out is confirmed by the poles still vertically in place in the ice.

A river in Greenland augmented by ice melt: The river that runs through Kanger, called Akuliarusiarsuup Kuua in Greenlandic, but also known as Watson River. This river is very milky looking because it is formed by melt-water from the ice sheet. The grey river banks are not ice, but rocks now exposed
