On Global Warming, Denial, Ice, and The MV Akademik Shokalskiy

People who find it politically inconvenient to believe that global warming is real are taking glee at the suffering on board the MV Akademik Shokalskiy, a boat filled with climatologists that’s stuck in frozen waters near Antarctica. They’re writing articles suggesting that the existence of thick ice near Antarctica somehow suggests that global warming is [...]

Rising Sea Levels Threaten Endangered Squirrels
