The extent of Sea ice is also at its lowest levels since records were kept.  As temperatures rise and sea ice retreats, Canada’s north is already experiencing […]

Emissions to cause even more profound warming

Burning all the Earth’s remaining fossil fuels could lead to an average temperature increase of about 8 °C across the globe—with an increase of 17 °C in the Arctic—by 2300, say researchers at the University of Victoria. Using a series of comprehensive Earth system models, researchers simulated long-term warming in response to releasing five trillion […]
