Melting Greenland ice threatens to expose Cold War waste

Agence France-Presse: A snow-covered former US army base in Greenland -- dubbed "a city under ice" -- could leak pollutants into the environment as the climate changes, raising difficult questions over who is responsible for a clean-up. In 1959, US army engineers began constructing a futuristic project in northwestern Greenland that might as well have been lifted from a Cold War spy movie. A network of tunnels under the snow contained everything from research facilities to a hospital, a cinema and a church -- all powered...

Consequences of Climate Change: Polar Bear Population Shrinking Due to Arctic Sea Ice Melt

Nature World: Alert! The melting sea ice in the Arctic is leaving polar bear hungry and their population dwindling in numbers. According to a report from Earth Sky, polar bears have taken the most drastic hit from the melting Arctic sea ice due to climate change. Polar bears mainly get their fat and nutrients from eating seals, and the ice in the Arctic has greatly helped the slow-moving bears to catch the much-faster seals by ambushing the latter through the ice. However, as the Arctic sea ice continues...

Soil carbon storage not the climate change fix it was thought, research finds

Global warming: Greenland ice melting 7 per cent faster than thought

Press Trust of India: Greenland lost nearly 2,700 gigatonnes of ice from 2003-2013, 7.6 per cent more than previously thought, a new study has found. According to researchers from Ohio State University in the US, the hotspot that feeds Iceland’s active volcanoes has softened the mantle rock beneath Greenland in a way that ultimately distorted their calculations for ice loss in the Greenland ice sheet. This caused them to underestimate the melting by about 20 billion metric tonnes or 20 gigatonnes per year. That means...
