NASA Images Show Antarctica’s Eagle Island Almost Ice-Free

Published on February 22nd, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

NASA images show a new side of Antarctica, an almost ice-free side. The images show a breathtaking view, and not in the sense that one would have when looking at something beautiful. I am sure it is beautiful, but for our planet, that melted ice has to go somewhere. Just a few days after we wrote about it being warmer in Antarctica than Louisiana, the highest temperatures ever recorded at Argentina's Esperanza research station arrived: 65 degrees Fahrenheit. The gif image below tells a chilling story that is just heating up... Read More

40 Million Americans Depend On The Colorado River. That Could Be A Problem.

Published on February 21st, 2020 | by Steve Hanley

The Colorado River now carries about 20% less water than it did a century ago. The Colorado originates in the Rocky Mountains, where it is fed by melting snow. Due to the changes in weather patterns attributable to a heating planet, not as much snow falls in those mountains today as in prior years. Less snow means the land in the upper elevations is warmed by the sun where previously the snow cover would reflect sunlight back into space, making the area hotter, which means that whatever snow falls melts sooner...
