Greenland Ice May Melt Even Faster

The vulnerability of Greenland’s glaciers to global warming is even greater than feared, according to radar and satellite data analysed by U.S. research scientists—and that’s bad news for rising sea levels.

No Way Back for West Antarctic Glaciers

Analysis of space satellite data reveals that the West Antarctic’s glaciers have passed the “point of no return” and will continue to melt inexorably as the Southern Hemisphere gets warmer.

Experts: Antarctic Ice Collapse Means Rising Oceans Inevitable

“The collapse of large parts of the ice sheet in West Antarctica appears to have begun and is almost certainly unstoppable, with global warming accelerating the pace of the disintegration,” The New York Times reports two groups of scientists stated Monday.
