Climate change is gradually pushing back the Arctic ice sheet. That's bad news for the rest of the world, but - from trade to fishing and even tech companies - it is opening up new opport...
More plastic is finding its way to the Arctic, which has repercussions for Arctic and global ecosystems and economies as well as human health. The Arctic Council and World Economic Forum ...
Following an extended summer this year, Greenland's ice sheet was left with only a thin protective cover that quickly melted in April, contributing to the 329 billion tonnes that Greenlan...
Since 1970, Arctic sea ice extent has declined by nearly 12% per decade and it's taking a toll upon Norway.
Using past models, scientists learn ocean warming was the key driver of glacial retreat since the last ice age in the Ross Sea.
Fires in the most northerly regions of the Earth are normal, but new research has shed concerning light on recent fires, suggesting they're too frequent, intense and severe.
Despite being hardy creatures who inhabit some of the world's most inhospitable landscapes, reindeer are finding it hard to adapt to global warming.
Warming temperatures are melting the Arctic ice, disrupting the way of life of both people and animals. Can Canadian environmental protections save this vital region?
At the Earth’s far northern reaches, wildfires are happening more often, burning for longer and with greater intensity.
Rising temperatures are disrupting a landscape that has gone unchanged for millennia, resulting in a host of out-of-the-ordinary events.
Antarctic sea ice has typically been safe from the effects of climate change felt elsewhere on Earth. But in the last three years that has changed.
Although tundra fires have burned in Alaska in the past, their frequency is increasing as temperatures rise, scientists say
Sea ice coverage is expected to decrease for at least the next 30 years, allowing for a burgeoning shipping industry. But this could spell trouble for sealife.
We're sending 20 of our Young Global Leaders north to see how viewing the shrinking ice sheet will inspire them to rise to the climate crisis.
