Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier may be thinning faster than previously thought

“They didn’t know what the shape of the continent was, whether it had mountains — this wasn’t about glaciology or studying ice sheets. It was really fundamental Earth exploration,” says Dusty Schroeder.

The hotter the planet grows, the less children are learning

“This is a well-researched and trustworthy [study] design for understanding the causal effects of changes in things like temperature on economic outcomes,” says Marshall Burke on a new study on the effects of temperature and learning.

Antarctica: Thwaites Glacier Ice Shelf has thinned by up to 23 percent since 1970s

"Thwaites is one of the fastest-changing, most-potentially unstable glaciers in Antarctica and, as such, understanding it is key for understanding the evolution and potential sea-level contribution of the whole ice sheet," Dustin Schroeder says.

Researchers say climate change means humans will have to retreat from the coasts — so let’s do it the right way

"No matter the circumstances, moving is hard...One major challenge with retreat is that we’re so focused on getting people out of harm’s way, we miss the chance to help them move to opportunity,”  says Miyuki Hino on managed retreat from areas at risk of flooding.
