Articles in the press
« on: September 23, 2016, 10:43:29 AM »
Hello,

Don't know if this is a good idea, but we could have a topic putting together Press articles. There should be as information at least : The title, the publisher, the date of publication and the name of the author.

Only articles you really liked should be indicated, otherwise this list would fill itself too fast. I would also suggest a separated topic for articles that are not for general public.

Here are two articles I liked :

Greenland may be losing ice even faster than we thought - Washington Post 20160921 - Chelsea Harvey
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2016/09/21/greenland-may-be-losing-ice-even-faster-than-scientists-thought/?utm_term=.2a506195534c&wpisrc=nl_green&wpmm=1
It is about the fact that the loss of ice in Greenland could have been underestimated because of the elevation of the ground when ice melts.

Seas aren’t just rising, scientists say — it’s worse than that. They’re speeding up - Washington Post 20160810 - Chris Mooney
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2016/08/10/seas-arent-just-rising-scientists-say-theyre-speeding-up/?utm_term=.f8bcf10d1b77&wpisrc=nl_green&wpmm=1
Its about the impact of the Pinatobo eruption on sea level rise and how it mistaked the statistical analysis of sea level rise.

Best regards,

Etienne

It's a good idea, in principle. But we already have such a thread, and most of these articles fit in really well in threads that are dedicated to the subject.

How about having this as "Arctic" or "Cryosphere" only as the other is almost all wildfire and floods - of which there are lots and lots of course ?

And a timely one:

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/greenlands-ice-is-melting-even-faster-than-we-thought_uk_57e4ed7fe4b0db20a6e8e584?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl11%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D777708323_uk-ws-bb

Article about the Greenland ice sheet ice loss being underestimated as the rock movement below hasn't been correctly taken into account.
