Climate study claims dramatic reduction in periglacial zones is now inevitable

Scientists surveying the state of the world's periglacial zones, cold regions often home to layers of frozen ground called permafrost, report that the days for many such regions may be numbered. The team now expects climate change to severely reduce periglacial coverage by halfway through the century, no matter what course of action we take in the meantime... Continue Reading Climate study
