This Pink Snow Does Not Bode Well For Our Future

Your first thought on seeing this weird pink snow might be an industrial accident or a nearby Big Foot massacre. Rest assured, it’s neither — just a perfectly natural, snow-dwelling algae. So why are scientists all in a tizzy about it? Because it’s causing glaciers to melt faster.


The Last Spot On Earth Just Passed A Historic Climate Milestone

On May 23, something extraordinary happened at the South Pole. For the first time in four million years, carbon dioxide concentrations cleared 400 parts per million (ppm). It’s the last climate-monitoring spot on Earth to pass the historic milestone.


This Australian Rodent Is The First Mammal To Go Extinct Due To Human-Caused Climate Change

Say goodbye to the Bramble Cay melomys, a small rat-like creature that lived on a tiny island near the north coast of Australia. Significantly, it marks the first time that a mammal has been declared extinct anywhere in the world, and the cause has been attributed to human-induced climate change.


Researchers' Attempt To Find Even One Pristine Spot On Earth Ends In Total Failure

An exhaustive attempt by researchers to find a single untouched space on planet Earth has yielded no results. Sorry, folks, everything is ruined now.


Climate Change Is Real And This Chart Proves It

Climate change is real, it’s happening right now, and it’s pushing us into an increasingly grim-looking future. Still don’t believe it? Take a look at this graph.


The Last Place On Earth To Feel Global Warming

It’s an observation repeated loud and often by climate deniers: while Greenland melts like a popsicle in the summer sun, Antarctica is staying chill. Parts of the coastline are actually gaining sea ice. According to a new scientific paper, there’s no conspiracy to be found here, but rather, a manifestation of global ocean currents. In fact, the waters surrounding Antarctica could be the last place on Earth to feel the burn of global warming.


The Great Barrier Reef Is Even Worse Off Than We Thought

We’ve known for a while that the Great Barrier Reef is dying, but new numbers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies drive home exactly how much of it has been affected by mass bleaching.


The Arctic Circle Just Had Its Earliest Snowmelt Ever

Five hundred kilometres above of the Arctic Circle is America’s northern most snow observatory, typically the last place in the nation to see its snow melt. As of today, its snow has melted, setting a new (and terrible) record.


Could La Niña Break Our Global Hot Streak?

This is the hottest month on record. No, this is the hottest month on record. No, THIS is the hottest month on record!


One Of The Most Convincing Climate Change Visualisations We've Ever Seen

But we had so much snow this winter! But it’s only a couple degrees! But the temperature in my hometown feels fine! We’ve heard it all from climate change deniers. This elegant visualisation ought to scare a few straight.
