Risk of Conflict in Arctic Escalating From Climate Change (The Guardian)
Even Dead Being Affected by Sea Level Rise (Guardian)
The world’s top scientists predict that global sea levels could rise more than three feet by 2100. Higher seas and warmer weather will cause profound changes.
Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, and the problem is likely to exacerbate unless greenhouse emissions are controlled.
The report said climate change may affect the reliability of pipelines and electricity
grids, as well as tourism resorts, especially ski and beach resorts.
CC Forecasts Are Accurate (The Guardian)
Predictions about the future climate have been spot-on so far. And that's reason to worry: Because the latest forecasts paint a rather dire picture.
Six massive glaciers in West Antarctica are moving faster than they did 40 years ago, causing more ice to discharge into the ocean and global sea level to rise, according to new research.
Over the last 20 years, radar from satellites has created a continuous snapshot of the ice sheet in Western Antarctica — and shown that the ice might be thinning faster than previously thought.
Unpredictable, extreme weather poses risks to vital aspects of business – including natural resources, agriculture, operational infrastructure, supply chains and insurance risk management, among many others.
Global warming is real. Perhaps our results will help cool this portion of the climate debate.
Cities In The Crosshairs of Sea Level Rise (USA Today)
A rise in sea levels threatens the viability of more than 1,400 cities and towns, including Miami, Virginia Beach and Jacksonville, unless there are deep cuts in heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions.

Constant erosion from storms and tides and a rising sea level continue to swallow up chunks of beach along Florida’s Atlantic coastline.
Whether it's climate change or a storm surge — or both — researchers say the sea will eventually inundate parts of Cape Cod. Now, there's a tool that shows the number of homes and roads that could be covered by water or flooded.
