A 52-foot bridge made of live ice is on display in front of the Danish Parliament on the Christiansborg Slotsplads. The display for COP15 "opened" yesterday and stays up until in melts. It's part of the
Ships passing through the southern Pacific Ocean have been issued a warming: beware of hundreds of massive icebergs. Seems that they've broken off of an Antarctic ice floe and are now drifting towards New Zealand. Pics after the

The Ganges is taking a beating. Considered one of India’s holiest rivers, as of late its health has been threatened by chemical pollution, an overload of raw sewage and the possibility that its Himalayan
For decades, and especially in the past year, Tibet has come to be associated with China's fragile political condition. But it's also the site of one of China's and the world's biggest environmental crises. When I visited Everest in October I saw
There is something about sipping on a cocktail surrounded by friends that makes a party feel special. It doesn't matter what the time of year, whether you are getting into the holiday spirit, or sitting on a dock by a lake.
Despite having written at length (some might say excessively) about the sorry fate of Yosemite's dwindling glaciers and the Sierra snowpack, I've always felt as though my posts were missing something -- a certain audio/visual oomph, you might say.
This story seems to be one of those you couldn't make up even if you tried. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has dropped 90 rubber ducks into the ice of the Jakobshavn Greenland glacier in an attempt to study why
To raise awareness of global warming, one of the two main newspapers in Greenland, Sermitslaq, has set up an 'ice cam' located on one of the largest inland glaciers, Ilulissat, to show it melting - as you watch! Updated hourly. It seems a sad state
Although researchers may still largely be dealing in uncertainties when it comes to predicting Greenland's exact fate, the data and observations that continue to trickle in suggest a "greener" (see: ice-free) future for the island nation. According to
In light of our ongoing coverage of the melting Arctic ice caps - or, as we like to think of it, the "how low will they go" game - it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that the world's glaciers
Just when you think it can't possibly get any worse—well, it does. The Greenland ice cap is apparently melting so quickly that it is triggering earthquakes, as pieces of ice several cubic kilometers in size break off.
We will most likely see larger than previously expected increases in sea levels over the next century according to a recent study conducted by a team of researchers from the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado,
In its latest issue, Popular Science champions genetic and geo-engineering as strategies to mitigate the effects of climate change on the planet and save the environment in a series of articles collectively referred to as "Duct Tape Methods to Save the
