Meteorologists Warn of Potentially Devastating European Heatwave: ‘Hell Is Coming’

An intense heat wave is set to bake Europe in coming days, and it could be historic, potentially shattering records across a large portion of the continent.

Antarctica is melting faster than anyone thought, and we’re not ready for the sea level rise that’s coming

Ice melting rates in Antarctica tripled between 2012 and 2017, according to a study published in the journal Nature. The biggest increase has been ice melt in West Antarctica, where glaciers and ice sheets are vulnerable to warmer ocean temperatures. Experts think that if we don't get climate change under control quickly, ice sheets in West Antarctica could collapse, leading to rapid sea lev
