I find it delightful to think about how every day when I walk outside, whether it’s in a city or the country or in Antarctica, I’m surrounded by entire ecosystems full of tardigrades living their best lives. My TED Talk is about this joy: @TEDTalks
Antarctica's last six months were the coldest on record. "For the polar darkness period, from April through September, the average temperature was -60.9°C, a record for those months," the National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC) said. Ah yes climate change @hfrfromthefloor
An iceberg 1.5x the size of New York City has broken off Antarctica. Scientists say Antarctica is warming 3X faster than the rest of the planet and iceberg break-offs are accelerating — its ice shelves have lost 4 trillion metric tons since 1994.
JUST IN: World's largest iceberg, with an area of over 4,000 square kilometres, has broken off from Antarctica.
Scientists in Antarctica claim they've found evidence of a parallel universe where time runs backward.
Antarctica just hit its warmest temperature ever on record, 64.9°F, say researchers. Scientists say melting from global warming has now put Antarctica's ice sheet on course to disintegrate, leading to an eventual sea level rise of at least 10 ft.
