Greenland's Ice Sheets Are Getting Cooked By Warm Ocean Currents

The retreat of Arctic sea ice has been so dramatic over the last few years that atlases are being changed. Now it turns out Greenland’s ice sheets are also melting faster than we thought—not on the visible surface, but due to currents deep below the ocean. Read more...

Shrinking Sea Ice Forces Alaskan Walruses Ashore

Global warming is forcing thousands of walruses in Alaska to clamour inland due to the shrinking loss of Arctic ice. According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the massive group Read More The post Shrinking Sea Ice Forces Alaskan Walruses Ashore appeared first on Ecorazzi.

Walruses Once Again Taking to Alaskan Beaches En Masse as Sea Ice Dwindles

For decades, more and more ice has been melting nearly every summer in the Arctic. This is a problem for walruses that "haul out" onto the ice to "rest between foraging bouts to the seafloor" (as one does). In all but two years since 2007, the U.S. Show More Summary

That Changing Climate Change: Arctic Sea Ice Sees ‘Huge Increase’

Global warming religionists don’t want to talk about the growing amount of Arctic sea ice. It ruins their religious beliefs. But reality seems to note that sea ice is growing

"The volume of Arctic sea ice increased by around a third after an unusually cool summer in 2013."

"Researchers say the growth continued in 2014 and more than compensated for losses recorded in the three previous years."The scientists involved believe changes in summer temperatures have greater impacts on ice than thought. But they say 2013 was a one-off and that climate change will continue to shrink the ice in the decades ahead....

Cool summer of 2013 boosted Arctic sea ice

The volume of Arctic sea ice increased by a third after the summer of 2013 as the unusually cool air temperatures prevented the ice from melting, according to scientists. This suggests that the ice pack in the Northern hemisphere isShow More Summary
