Ice Loss During Antarctic Cold Reversal May Spell Trouble for WAIS Collapse

By | Abrupt changes, Antarctica, Glaciers, Greenland, Gulf Stream, ice sheet, Oceans, underice, West Antarctic Ice Sheet

Fifty-two feet of sea level rise occurred in 400 years, 14,500 years ago with ocean and collapse conditions similar to today. We were coming out of the last ice age then, but then, forcing was thousands of times less than today. Our climate’s most meaningful…

West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Collapse: The Latest Case for Zero Warming

By | Abrupt changes, Antarctica, Climate Policy, Climate Reform, ice sheet, Oceans, Policy, Sea Level Rise, Strategy, underice

New research has for the first time defined the tipping point between a stable WAIS and an Antarctica that collapses uncontrollably. Potsdam Institute researchers (Levermann and Feldmann) tell us is that if we do not return our oceans to their preindustrial temperature by 2050, we…
