The Zealandia Switch drove rapid global ice retreat 18,000 years ago. Has it switched to a new level?

Rocks deposited by vanishing glaciers in the Southern Alps thousands of years ago hold climate clues about the past, painting a bleak picture about the long-term survival of alpine ice in New Zealand.

Our lakes are losing their ice cover faster than ever — here’s what that means for us

Lakes in the northern hemisphere are rapidly losing their ice cover due to rising greenhouse gas emissions. The only way to preserve lake ice is to limit GHG emissions and slow down climate change.
