‘Unstoppable' loss of Antarctic glaciers prompts sealevel warning

Irvine - The rapidly melting West Antarctic Ice Sheet is in an irreversible state of decline according to the latest NASA study. As a result, the "ice-dam" preventing glaciers in the area melting into the sea will ultimately disappear.

Decades of rising seas predicted as huge Antarctic glacier melts

Cambridge - Pine Island Glacier, part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and the biggest single contributor to rises in global sea levels, continues to melt at record rates. The melt could continue for decades, according to new research.

Greenland's Jakobshavn glacier retreating at record speeds

Ilulissat - One of Greenland’s largest glaciers is moving at speeds never before recorded. In the process it’s moving ice from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean at record rates.

Review: Chasing Ice — Spectacular images, chilling realization Special

Nashville - Whether or not you are a fan of documentary movies, and even if you don't believe in climate change, the powerfully stunning videography of "Chasing Ice" makes this documentary worth the price of admission.

Arctic ice cap continues record melt

New data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSDIC) reveal that Arctic ice is continuing to melt at an alarming rate. Summer ice in the Arctic may all but disappear over the next few decades, much earlier than scientists had previously predicted.

New GRACE satellite data on sea level rise from melting ice caps

Boulder - A publication in the journal Nature by scientists at the Univ. of Colorado, has estimated that from 2003 to 2010 the world's glaciers and ice caps lost about 150 billion tons annually, causing an average annual rise of 0.4 millimeter in sea level.

Glaciers now melting at fastest rate in last 350 years

Aberystwyth - A new study on ice loss calculations shows some mountain glaciers are currently melting at a rate 100 times faster than at any other period during the last 350 years, setting the stage for major impacts on fresh water supplies and agriculture production.

Bolivia In Dire Shape As Climate Changes

There are those who dismiss that global warming is happening. Don't tell that to people living in Bolivia. They are witnessing the changes on a daily basis. The glaciers in Bolivia are melting. Water supply in the rugged mountainous country is in peril.

Iceberg from Jakobshavn Isbræ, Disko Bay, Greenland. Jacobshavn Glacier is retreating at an accelerating rate. Once icebergs calve from Jakobshavn Isbræ they float roughly 60 kms down the fjord, often become trapped in a shallow region where the fjord enters Disko Bay, near Ilulissat.
