Antarctica’s Changing Larsen Ice Shelf

The Larsen Ice Shelf is situated along the northeastern coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, one of the fastest-warming places on the planet. In the past three decades, two large sections of the ice shelf (Larsen A and B) collapsed. A third section (Larsen C) seems like it may be on a similar trajectory, with a […]

What perturbs the Oort Cloud?

Taking any mention of climate control, LBGT rights and clean energy off the whitehouse.gov website, Christians first in immigration considerations (Muslims are bad), deciding for us what […]
