Since the 1980s, photographer Olaf Otto Becker has been documenting Greenland’s glaciers. His pictures show how these icy giants have been gradually melting away. Take a journey through the cold.
Research has shown a large number of Himalayan glaciers will melt even if "ambitious" Paris Agreement goals are met. The thaw is expected to have a big effect on Asia, disrupting river flows in China and India.
The disintegrating Greenland ice sheet is the leading cause of global sea level rise. And, according to a new study, it's melting faster than it ever has in recorded history.
Researchers believe that a 1-kilometer-wide iron meteorite caused the 31-kilometer-wide impact crater, perhaps as little as 12,000 years ago. It's the first such crater found under any of Earth's ice sheets.
Organizers claim the postcard consisting of 125,000 children's drawings and messages is the world's largest. The postcard is expected to raise awareness about climate change and its impact on shrinking glaciers.
