One Trillion Ton Iceberg

By Daniel Brouse An iceberg weighing over one trillion tons (about the size of Delaware) broke off Antarctica. “Antarctica contains 90% of the world’s fresh water as ice. If all the ice melts, sea levels will rise by 60 meters (200 feet). The sea ice melting doesn’t raise the sea level as the ice is […]

Antarctica: Melting Glacier Could See Sea Levels to Rise by 6 Feet

In a new study by Imperial College of London, “current rates of climate change could trigger instability in a major Antarctic glacier, ultimately leading to more than 2m of sea-level rise.” “The evidence coming together is painting a picture of East Antarctica being much more vulnerable to a warming environment than we thought,” said Professor […]

Sea Level Rise Submerges Five Islands

The Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean area disappearing due to climate change and the rising sea level. Sea-level rise, erosion and coastal flooding are the most devastating impacts of human induced global warming. In Environmental Research Letters published by IOP Science, scientists have studied the effects of sea-level rise and waves: Low-lying reef islands […]

Oceans Rising at Fastest Rate

A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences states that oceans are rising at a faster rate than any time in the last 3,000 years. “We can say with 95 percent probability that the 20th-century rise was faster than any of the previous 27 centuries,” said Bob Kopp, a climate scientist […]
