For a number of years now, climate change skeptics have argued that there’s a key part of the Earth’s climate system that upends our expectations about global warming, and that is showing trends th

In a major new paper in the influential journal Science, a team of researchers report strikingly good news about a 30-year old environmental problem.

The sudden climate change is wreaking havoc all over the world and Antarctica is no exception.

Antarctic sea ice is constantly on the move as powerful winds blow it away from the coast and out toward the open ocean.
