State Of Emergency Declared After 50 Polar Bears Invade Russian Town

A state of emergency has been declared in Novaya Zemlya, after more than 50 polar bears invaded the group of islands north of Russia.

One such meeting ground is the town of Belushya Guba, which has seen 52 polar bears in the town and surrounding area, with roughly 10 constantly roaming around the settlement. Locals have been “chased” by the polar bears, and many of the thousands of residents are now “afraid to go outside”, the Siberian Times reports. “Parents are wary of letting children go to …

Meltwater Lakes Are Causing Antarctic Ice Shelves To Buckle Under The Weight

A new way has been identified for global warming to strip the Earth of its remaining ice. Meltwater lakes on ice shelves cause the ice nearby to twist under the water’s weight, hastening the shelves’ collapse. Computer models have suggested that when it gets warm enough for water to pool on ice shelves, such as those around Antarctica, the weight – up to 2 million tons – will depress the ice beneath. Refreezing come winter makes no difference, but if an opening drains the lake, the sudden weight loss should raise the shelf beneath. Like any other solid object, repeated flexing could produce cracks, which may contribute to the shelf breaking up. These ideas are all theoretical, however, and we’ve …

El Nio Has Returned But It’s Quite A Weak One

Researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) say that the conditions in the tropical Pacific now qualify to be considered El Niño. The phenomenon refers to warmer waters around the central Pacific, which influence the weather conditions of many countries along the ocean. The NOAA announcement comes after atmospheric conditions shifted. For the region to be experiencing El Niño, three things need to happen: the surface of the ocean needs to be more than 0.5°C above the long-term average, this temperature needs to hold up for several seasons, and finally, the Walker atmospheric circulation needs to diminish.
