On Friday, scientists at institutions in Australia and the United States had published a set of unprecedented ocean observations about the largest glacier in the one of the largest ice sheet in the world, the Totten glacier in East Antarctica. Their findings reveal one of the world’s greatest fears -- Totten is melting from below.
Climate change experts from Princeton and Penn State University are urging policymakers and scientists to become more active in collaborating to better prepare the international community for rising sea levels.
Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have identified another way to help reduce rising global temperatures, by injecting light-reflecting particles in a process called solar geoengineering.
President-elect Donald Trump has long spoken up against climate change claiming it is nothing but a hoax. It appears that even Trump’s team members are following his lead as one of his advisers likened climate change with the theory that the Earth was flat.

A new research headed by Zhiyong Wang from the Carnegie Institution for Science, a private nonprofit organization dedicated to ground-breaking scientific research, has discovered the specific system plants use to regulate their various response to heat between daytime and nighttime.
NASA has released new realistic 3-D simulations of how carbon dioxide moves around the Earth’s atmosphere. The visualization will help scientists tackle the rise of CO2 emissions.
With only days away before the new president takes one of the most important seats of power in the United States, scientists scramble to save whatever climate data that they can from government servers to public servers. These are done in hopes of preserving whatever government data has been collected through the years in the fear that these crucial information will slowly vanish under the new administration.
NASA and USGS are using a real-time ice sheet viewing process in order to study the factors that influence the movement of glaciers and ice sheets towards the sea.
Are our climate change efforts changing anything? The rising concentration of methane in the atmosphere, now increasing at a faster rate than any period in the last 20 years, is becoming a great threat to the environment – and a much more difficult problem to solve.
