Scientists are reporting that Greenland is rising as the large weight of ice pressing down on land is melting. And the country's elevation gains are speeding up. Glacial melt on Greenland is being watched very carefully
I was going to say this fish has a face that only a mother could love, but chances are she just laid some eggs and got the hell out of there. But it turns out that this fish, a "longhead dreamer" anglerfish, is not alone

This Eco-Economy Indicator is a guest post written by my colleague Alexandra Giese, a staff researcher at the Earth Policy Institute.
From the Arctic sea ice to the Antarctic interior and the mountainous peaks of Peru,
A mixed bag in climate change news this morning: Satellite imagery reveals that Amazon deforestation has dropped to the lowest rate since Brazil began monitoring efforts, President Inácio Lula da Silva announced yesterday
Anyone keeping up on the pace of Arctic summer sea ice melting, take note: Mongabay is reporting on new research presented by the National Space Institute at Technical University of Denmark (and others) which says that if
It appears that the largest Arctic glacier, the Petermann glacier in Greenland, is about to get a bit smaller. Reports from scientists monitoring the situation indicate that a chuck of ice the size of Manhattan (100 sq. kilometers) is about the fall
Silent Snow is a powerful short film documenting the pollution that affects the Inuits of Greenland. The pollution circulates from all over the world up to Greenland where it concentrates in the fish, seals and whales
I admit that this one isn't the deepest piece of news out there, but I find it too funny (and somehow interesting) to pass up repeating. The Guardian is reporting that NASA wants its rubber duckies back. And if you happen to be
There's always an irony or two in the daily news, and today is no exception: Greenland, the world's largest island, is suffering from the effects of global warming at about twice the rate of the rest of the globe (except for
It's not quite rocket science, but, as it turns out, it does involve a healthy dose of math and physics. The new "law" coined by Richard Alley, a glaciologist at Pennsylvania State University, and a team of other U.S.-based
Where many see a bleak future in climate change, characterized by melting ice caps, water shortages, acidic oceans and mass extinctions, others see an opportunity. Or, to be more precise, lots of dollar signs. Nature's Nicola Jones
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
Recently there's been a whole bucket full of Arctic climate change bad news, including the news that 83 square miles of Ellesmere Island's ice shelf has been lost this summer alone due to warming temperatures.
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
It's no secret that TreeHugger isn't fond of single-use bottles of water - there seems no trapping of modern life easier to let go of, when municipalities spend oodles to make most tap water clean, and reusable bottles come in
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
Proving that Big Coal's nefarious influence knows no bounds, a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has shown that pollution from coal burning has contaminated the Arctic for the last 100 years. Measurements taken
