6 December, 2016 − Observations of Antarctic ice pack from expeditions a century ago are helping modern scientists to understand the impacts of climate change.
29 November, 2016 – A warming climate is exposing the Arctic to the possibility of radical changes that could affect the rest of the planet, scientists say.
5 November, 2016 – Humans will have added enough carbon dioxide to the atmosphere by 2050 to melt all the Arctic’s sea ice, research predicts.
2 November, 2016 – The effects of Arctic climate change on the jet stream could mean harsher winters for some of the most highly populated regions of the world.
1 November, 2016 – Attempts to limit climate change by using the novel technologies known as geo-engineering are very unlikely to work, leading biologists say.
1 October, 2016 – New research shows that Greenland has been losing billions more tonnes of ice than thought – and gaining height as bedrock rises under less weight.

26 August, 2016 – Scientists find that impacts of population growth on the planet’s biodiversity aren’t generally as bad as feared – but are intensifying rapidly in species-rich areas.
15 August, 2016 – Record high temperatures in Arctic Russia are believed to be one of the main factors behind the emergence of the deadly anthrax disease in northwestern Siberia.
2 July, 2016 – Microscopic forms of coloured algae are suspected of helping to speed up the melting rate of snow by reducing its crucial ability to reflect the sun’s rays.
