Historic shrinking of Antarctic Ice Sheet linked to CO2 spike

Issues & Causes / Environmentalism : Physorg: Earth

Twenty-three million years ago, the Antarctic Ice Sheet began to shrink, going from an expanse larger than today's to one about half its modern size. Computer models suggested a spike in carbon dioxide levels as the cause, but the e...

Plunge in CO2 put the freeze on Antarctica

Last month, Climate Central's Brian Kahn reported "In the centuries to come, history books will likely look back on September 2016 as a major milestone for the world's climate." Kahn was referring to news that in a month when we wou...

Carbon Dioxide Drop And Global Cooling Caused Antarctic Glacier To Form

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Global climate rapidly shifted from a relatively ice-free world to one with massive ice sheets on Antarctica about 34 million years ago. What happened? What changed? Scientists offer a new perspective on the nature of changing clima...

Antarctic ice sheet is result of carbon dioxide decrease, not continental breakup

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Climate modelers have shown that the most likely explanation for the initiation of Antarctic glaciation during a major climate shift 34 million years ago was decreased carbon dioxide levels. The finding counters a 40-year-old theory...
