Two new studies revealed that the Western Antarctic Ice Sheet has crossed a dangerous breaking point. Melting at a much faster pace than originally anticipated, it's unstoppable collapse is already underway.
The Arctic sea ice is the most famous visual indicator of climate change. This year the climate deniers took the lead to explain what's going on with the Arctic sea ice.
A vast and previously unmapped gorge 800 metres (half a mile) deep has been found under ice in Greenland, comparable in size to parts of the Grand Canyon in the United States, scientists said.
About as long as the Rhone river in France and Switzerland, the ravine was probably cut by an ancient river that eroded rocks
