Aerial drone footage shows a massive crack in Antarctic ice, forcing scientists to leave their research base.
So far, the Antarctic was seen as relatively stable. But a new study suggests that climate change is affecting the polar region on a much larger scale than previously believed – which could have devastating consequences.
A team of researchers has found a massive supercolony of Adelie penguins on Antarctica's Danger Islands. The surprising discovery comes after warnings of an alarming population decline among penguins.
A further weakening of the system of currents in the Atlantic Ocean could wreak havoc on the Earth's climate. But there isn't too much reason to be overly concerned about a looming ice age — at least not yet.
