A small team of scientists ventures out onto the Greenland ice sheet to study the forces large and small that are accelerating the melting of the world’s second-largest ice mass.
As climate warms, the Greenland ice sheet is melting, helping to fuel global sea-level rise. Follow a small team of scientists as they hike onto the sheet to investigate the forces large and small that are demolishing the ice.
Because the federal government isn’t the only one trying to censor, misrepresent, or otherwise stifle science.
An eighth-generation farmer and student explains how science seeks to quantify and understand the changes that farmers understand intuitively.
As of August 14, the federal government has attempted to censor, misrepresent, and otherwise stifle science over 150 times, according to the Sabin Center’s Silencing Science Tracker.
Two Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory scientists affiliated with the Center for Climate and Life are leading research that examines some of the ways climate change affects the health of the ocean.
Scientists have known for some time that ice shelves off West Antarctica are melting as deep, warm ocean waters eat at their undersides, but a new study shows that temperatures, and resultant melting, can vary far more than previously thought, within a time scale of a few years.
Three decades after Hansen first warned Congress about global warming, the overwhelming scientific consensus is that he was right—and most would say that far too little has been done to address the threat.
Billions of people in thousands of cities around the world will soon be at risk from climate-related heat waves, droughts, flooding, food shortages and energy blackouts by mid-century, but many cities are already taking action to blunt such effects, says a new report from a consortium of international organizations.
