How burning Forests melt Ice Sheets

Forest fires can melt glaciers thousands of miles away by changing the colour of the ice – all thanks to a heavy little particle called black carbon. This strange story of smoke, dust and algae looks at the lesser-known half of a positive feedback loop: not only does climate change make fires bigger and badder,…

NASA’s Permafrost Special “All Hell Breaks Lose”

This week, #NASAExplorers head back in time…by going underground. In the Arctic, a frozen layer of soil – permafrost – trapped dead plants and animals for thousands of years. As the climate warms, that soil is beginning to thaw, releasing carbon dioxide and methane. Release via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7ZbghndiwQ
