#Regram#RG@wwf: Large amounts of the Arctic are currently covered in ice - whether sea ice or glacial ice - but this will change, with climate change causing the region to become a wetter, warmer, less predictable place... Unless countries take urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions further, the effects of a warming Arctic will continue to be felt around the world. Rising sea levels, changes in climate and rain patterns, increasing severe weather events, and effects on fish stocks, marine mammals and bird populations...

#Regram#RG@guardian: We have 12 years to limit a climate change catastrophe, a scientific report has announced today. Following devastating hurricanes in the US, record droughts in Cape Town and forest fires in the Arctic, the report makes clear that climate change is already happening and has upgraded its risk warning. At the current level of commitments by world leaders, we're on course for a disastrous 3C of global warming. The authors of the report are refusing to accept defeat though and believe that the increasingly visible damage caused by climate change will shift opinion.

#Regram#RG@leonardodicapriofdn: There are only a few weeks left until governments from around the world meet to decide the fate of the Antarctic Ocean. We need every country at this meeting to agree to create an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary, the largest protected area on Earth. The Sanctuary would create a safe haven for Antarctic wildlife like penguins to recover from the pressures of pollution and overfishing, and help safeguard against growing threats associated with climate change, which all put the future of this fragile region at risk. But it will only become a reality if all governments feel the momentum of a truly global movement calling for Antarctic protection.

#Regram#RG@cnn: This shocking drone footage shows the devastation left by the earthquake and tsunami that hit Indonesia on Friday. The 7.5 magnitude earthquake and 3-meter-high (10 foot) waves killed hundreds.
#Regram#RG@conservationorg: Worldwide, the ocean is changing rapidly. The forces of climate change, acidification and overfishing are putting enormous pressure on our oceans — and on the human populations who depend on their resources. The challenge of tackling these changes — which, if left unchecked, will affect us all — is as urgent as it is enormous. But every Goliath has its David. For the threats to our oceans, that David just might be Kiribati — a tiny island nation roughly half the size of London — where former President Anote Tong conceived the Pacific Oceanscape, an unprecedented effort among Pacific island nations to collaboratively and sustainably manage nearly 40 million square kilometers of vital ocean.
#Regram#RG@leonardodicapriofdn: Today is #SaveTheKoalaDay. #Koalas are faithful to their home ranges, which are rapidly being destroyed by urbanization, highway upgrades, mining, deforestation, infrastructure, wildfires, and drought. With a massive increase in immigration sending Australia’s population to 25 million in less than 9 years, coastal native forests, homelands of koalas and other forest-dependent species are being eradicated to accommodate the upsurge in growth.

#Regram#RG@reuters: Reuters photographer Lucas Jackson @lucas_jackson_ was perched on a cliff above Greenland’s Helheim glacier, when an explosion broke the arctic silence. More explosions followed. He ran across a muddy tundra to a video camera on a tripod overlooking the glacier and ripped off the trash bag he had used to protect it. He hit record as fast as he could focus. The popping sounds morphed into a low rumble. Over the next half hour, the ice broke apart and a four-mile wide chunk tumbled into the sea in a process called calving - one rarely witnessed on this scale. As a photographer, Jackson has captured erupting volcanoes, the aftermath of hurricanes and tornadoes, and war, but he says he has never felt so small. It was a poignant end to a months-long project examining climate change in Greenland. For both journalists and scientists, climate change is difficult to document. It most often happens imperceptibly - a tenth of a degree increase in temperature, a few less inches of rain, a slowly melting ice sheet. That’s why it was so overwhelming to watch billions of tons of ice collapse at all once, Jackson said. Suddenly it didn’t feel like a small or distant problem.
