Arctic coastal erosion isn't just a byproduct of climate change — it also contributes to it - ArcticToday

Thousands of years ago, at the end of the last glacial period, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere shot up suddenly on three separate occasions — about 11,500, 14,600 and 16,500 years ago, to be exact. Why? A team of researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research headed to the

Climate change makes seas rise faster and faster

Climate change is boosting the average rate of global sea level rise. Steps can limit the worst impacts and help people adapt. But time to act is running short.

Tragedy of a village built on ice

Climate change is threatening to make this Arctic village unlivable. But can it be reborn in a new location?

Shishmaref, Alaska, home to a tightly knit Iñpuiat community of 600 people, is ground zero for climate change in the Arctic. What happens here could foreshadow the fates of other US coastal communities. Why won't Washington pay attention?
