This desperate plan to save the iconic Swiss glaciers just might work.
Some Himalayan glaciers were granted with living human entity with same rights as a person to prevent environmental damage. The decision was made after alarming receding rate of glaciers were recorded.
A scientist has engineered a way to possibly solve the problems of glacial melting in the Himalayas through artificial glacier towers called an ice stupa. The continuous glacial melting in the Himalayas has created a problem regarding water sources being scarce, which farms and wildlife strongly depend on.
The dangers of climate change were successfully avoided by Nepal by draining part of a giant glacial lake near Mount Everest. The melting of the Himalayan glaciers due to global warming has reached an alarming rate, creating huge glacial lakes that pose an active threat to surrounding mountain communities.
Recently, researchers have pointed out that Antarctica's melting hasn't been as intense as many climate change experts had feared. However, new research has revealed that this is all about to change, with new data hinting that the White Continent's surface will double its current melt rate by 2050.
Tropical mountain regions in Ecuador face significant impacts from climate change. Over the past two hundred years, vegetation on the Chimborazo volcano in Ecuador has migrated over 500 meters upslope.
The answer to scientists' questions about why Greenland was cooler than the rest of North America through the early 1990s, but is warming now--may have new solar-connected connections.
It's no secret that Greenland's glaciers are melting in the face of warming temperatures, but a new analysis aims to show just how their ebb and flow will impact sea level rise in the future.
As a result of climate change and warming temperatures, glaciers in Western Canada are to shrink a staggering 70 percent by 2100, according to new research.
A recent study of the ancient seafloor has revealed some surprising and worrying facts about our oceans' past. Tens-of-thousands of years ago, our oceans suffered from severe oxygen loss just as massive ice sheets started to melt. Now, with sea ice and glaciers fast retreating in the wake of climate change, experts are worried about another instance of mass deoxygenation.
Climate change is melting Mount Rainier's glaciers at unprecedented rates - six times the historic speed - and with temperatures still heating up, scientists are worried that the country may soon lose one of its greatest treasures.
