Warming climate is causing the glaciers and ice caps in Queen Elizabeth Islands, Canada to melt nine times faster annually.
Greenland's many supraglacial lakes have been seen suddenly and mysteriously draining as climate change causes this region to warm, and now scientists have finally explained the mechanism behind this phenomenon.
While it's no secret that much of the Antarctic Peninsula is rapidly melting, scientists were disappointed when they recently found that a previously stable region of Antarctica is experiencing rapid ice loss - so much so that it is even affecting Earth's gravity field.
It seems that every day scientists are telling us how climate change is causing the Antarctic ice sheet to melt, threatening to raise sea levels and drive the region's iconic penguins into extinction. And now, it appears that Antarctica, which was already rapidly disappearing, is melting faster than ever before.
No, I'm not talking about 200 years from present day. But new research has shown evidence of a 200-year lag between climate events in Greenland and Antarctica during the last ice age, and it could possibly help shed light on the consequences of climate change in the future.
As climate change melts Arctic sea ice and forces polar bears onto steady shores, it seems that they will have to adapt to a new diet. However, it is highly unlikely that these animals will be able to survive strictly on land-based foods, according to a new study.
Previous predictions of Greenland ice loss may have been greatly underestimated, as new research shows the region's "supraglacial" lakes could trigger faster ice melt in the future.
In an estimated six decades polar bears may not have any children at all. That's at least according to a recent study that estimates that by 2075, habitat reduction will have led to the utter elimination of adequate raising grounds for polar bear young, dooming the species.
Antarctic fur seals are being born smaller and breeding less, experts are reporting. This, they say, is a direct result of changing climate conditions in their natural habitats.
More than 400,000 years ago, a warming period pushed Greenland's ice sheet past its limit and raised global sea levels up to 6 meters, according to new research. The results may give us a glimpse as to what may happen as a result of Greenland's current climate-induced melting dilemma.
