High Temperatures, Damaging Impact Of Climate Change Help Spread Wildfire In Western States

Earlier study has found broad trends linking earlier spring weather, rising temperatures and increased forest fires, suggesting that climate change may play a role in fires like the Waldo Canyon blaze outside of Colorado Springs, which has burned more than 18,000 acres and consumed about 300 homes.

Relatively Small Rise In Temperature But In Very Long Term, Melts Greenland Ice Sheet Completely

The Greenland ice sheet is more sensitive to global warming than thought, for just a relatively small, but very long term, temperature rise would melt it completely, according to a study.

The Expansion Of Water As Oceans Warm & Melting Of Poles’ Ice Caps Are Main Driver Of Sea Level Rise

Melting ice from mountain glaciers particularly in Asia, are having a much smaller effect on sea levels than previously thought, with a ‘negligible mass loss’ over the last ten years.
