Sure, scientific experimentation, just like much of real life, includes problems, troubles, obstacles and difficulties almost

It's easier to focus on politics, celebrity gossip, reality TV and cat videos than on Earth's climate. It seems like everyone's all "Greenland? Who cares? Whatever. Next." And that upsets me. Is it really that easy to pretend the effects of global warming don't exist?
Science
Yet another sign that climate change is a major threat to our planet.
Science
Clouds are trapping in heat and accounting for as much as 30 percent of the ice sheet melt, scientists say.
Science
A new study shows climate change can undercut nature's way of protecting the ice.

You don't try and pet the Greenland sled dog with a cheery Mickey Mouse-like "Come here Pluto," a pat on the head and a treat in your hand, because the treat will be your hand.

It's a glorious sunny day here on the Greenland 'Riviera' in the depths of a February winter, the sky is a pale blue, there's hardly a wisp of cloud, and it's a bracing -8 Fahrenheit, that's -22.222 for those of the Celsius persuasion. Brrrrr!

When Erik the Red landed in Greenland in 982, it took him forever to get here just from near neighbour Iceland, not a mere hour or two, and it's highly unlikely he ever made it up to Kangerlussuaq, let alone further north to Ilulissat, 187 miles beyond the Arctic Circle.

Here a bright whitish aura spreads across the horizon, waves at us a little, shoots up a couple of fountain-like columns now and again. But that's about it. Ms. Aurora is definitely a tad shy tonight.
Travel
Talk about wrong way Mike! Everybody else is escaping the extra harsh cold in the north-eastern United State by flying south to the Caribbean, so how come I'm flying north to deepest Greenland in the depths of winter?

The glacier melting the fastest among those measured was the Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland and the Pine Island Glacier

Bell added that the structures would be like "giant ice sculptures made by nature." Until now, scientists relying on airborne

Ice core data record evidence of a volcanic eruption in 536, but it almost certainly wasn't big enough to change the climate

Earlier studies, based on satellite observations, had also noted that Greenland’s ice flow has started to slow, which means

Indeed, sea ice has been on a downward spiral ever since satellites first started to make observations in the 1970s, to the

This is a crucial time in the history of our species. We need transformational leadership that embraces supposedly unachievable challenges and then rises above them -- in order to obviate the unintended and unimaginable consequences of an ice-free North Pole.
