A Gaggle of Climate News
A conference on global warming being held in Greenland recently came to an end. Representatives from 22 countries attended. “There was a great desire to push ahead, to do something,” said French Environment Minister Nelly Olin, noting that “everyone was aware of the urgent problems to be resolved and the need to act.” Also in Greenland, the Ilulissat glacier has receded by nearly 10 kilometers in only a few years. Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, the presense of sea ice in the Antarctic is on the rise. A new super computer in Europe will make it possible to model and analyze climate change and scientists in the United States have begun field testing to try and unite climate and weather models.
