Climate change is forcing fish out of their traditional habitats and into cooler waters. Many more species will soon be affected if climate goals are not met, the reports says, pointing to the… Read more

The endlow creep of a glacier may seem uneventful, but now researchers have shown that when an iceberg breaks off into the ocean the glacier sometimes moves quickly backward and downward, causing the heretofore poorly understood phenomenon known as “glacial earthquakes”. Scientists studied the Helheim Glacier in Greenland over a 55 day period in 2013… Read more

More bad climate change news- a new study from Columbia University refutes the concept that global warming will lower the number of winter deaths in the cold months. Researchers from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health looked at temperature and mortality data from 39 cities in the US and France. They found a warmer… Read more
