Melting Arctic sea ice could increase summer rainfall in northwest Europe suggests new study

Antarctic Ice Shelf in Last Throes of Collapse

“A vast Antarctica ice shelf that partly collapsed in 2002 has only a few years left before it fully disappears, according to a new study.”

Gravity data show that Antarctic ice sheet is melting increasingly faster

“Researchers ‘weighed’ Antarctica’s ice sheet using gravitational satellite data and found that during the past decade, Antarctica’s massive ice sheet lost twice the amount of ice in its western portion compared with what it accumulated in the east. Their conclusion — the southern continent’s ice cap is melting ever faster.”

Direct evidence for a positive feedback in climate change: Global warming itself will likely accelerate warming
