A massive 97% of the surface ice sheet melted in July and was so large that scientists could scarcely believe it. Much of the meltwater freezes again later, but the findings still give cause for concern.

Changing climate alters wildfire risks, says study

Climate change is likely to cause large areas of the Earth to suffer increased wildfires, while in the rainforest, heavy rainfall could reduce the danger, according to a new study.

Blue Carbon estimates up! Coastal land-use conversion and degradation creates a new carbon source called "blue carbon".

Arctic sea ice extent for August 26, 2012 (right) was 4.10 million square kilometers (1.58 million square miles), which was 70,000 square kilometers (27,000 square miles) below the September 18, 2007 daily extent of 4.17 million square kilometers (1.61 million square miles, left). A loss of 5% of the ice will be the minimum over a full annual cycle. The orange line shows the 1979 to 2000 median extent for that day. The black cross indicates the geographic North Pole.

Sea ice covering the Arctic Ocean is now the smallest ever size seen since satellite monitoring of the Arctic polar cap started.

Blue Carbon

Oceanic flora and vegetation like terrestrial forests are carbon sequesters, they store tons of carbon, blue carbon. In the climate change debate the impacts to air have dominated, with water not having featured as a critical medium of impact.

It's science against politics against climate effects in a 3-way struggle this week. We all know the winner will be climate, unless some pretty good technology can come to our aid. #Arctic #climate
