Local and international researchers, and environmental experts are now predicting a positive side to climate change, apart from the devastating consequences caused by it on humanity. “In some areas people are enjoying the benefits of ...

The Great Aletsch Glacier is ill. Over the course of the twentieth century, the largest Alpine glacier, in Valais, Switzerland, receded by more than two kilometres, and Switzerland's 1,500 smaller glaciers are not faring any better. Is ...

You drop a bottle of soda on the floor. You pick it up and without thinking crack the cap. Woosh, Fizzz! The cap goes flying, and the contents of the bottle erupt all over you and your kitchen. Pretty predictable outcome for an ...

New scientific evidence has proved that Mount Kilimanjaro’s snow is melting fast. And there’ll be severe consequences for local people who rely on the melt water runoff for irrigation and domestic use. The report published last ...

The snows of Mount Kilimanjaro -- the highest mountain in Africa -- may soon be falling on bare ground following a study showing that its ice cap is destined to disappear entirely within 20 years, due largely to climate change. The vast ...

Retreating glaciers from the Alps to the Andes are likely to disrupt hydropower generation in coming decades. Following are details of glaciers and the wider impacts of climate change on hydropower, the most widely used form of renewable ...

By discovering the meaning of a rare mineral that can be used to track ancient climates, Binghamton University geologist Tim Lowenstein is helping climatologists and others better understand what we're probably in for over the next century or two ...

Where does science end and politics begin? For over a decade we have seen an increasingly bitter debate between environmentalists and sceptics about the extent to which the globe is warming, who is responsible and what, if anything, we ...

Alarm over Indian glacier's hasty retreat, International Herald Tribune
This is how a glacier retreats. At nearly 4,000 meters above sea level, in the shadow of a sharp Himalayan peak, a wall of black ice oozes in the sunshine. A tumbling stone breaks the silence of the mountains, or water gurgles under the ...
