Researchers find links between Arctic melting and summer floods and fires

ClimateWire: A new weather pattern that sends blasts of warm southern air into the Arctic each June has fueled the recent, dramatic decline of the region’s sea ice, according to a new government-funded study. But that is not all it has done, the analysis suggests, linking the shifting summer winds to record thaws of the Greenland ice sheet, unusually wet European summers and Rocky Mountain wildfires. Researchers say the switch from light, variable east-west winds to stronger, warmer blasts of southern air… Continue reading

Sea Rise Will Be Irreversible Over Next Several Thousand Years Due To Greenhouse Gas Emissions

redOrbit: A groundbreaking study by a team of European researchers warns that greenhouse gas emissions will cause an irreversible rise in sea level over the next several thousand years. The study, published in the latest edition of the journal Environmental Research Letters, expanded the scope of typical climate change studies to include thousands of years in its projections and also took into consideration all of the Earth’s land ice, something which had never been done before. Using thermomechanical… Continue reading
