If this were a model, then the sudden appearance of a blue stain in the middle of West Antarctica would be confounded with a numerical instability.

If you want to know how the frozen continent looks like, or how people work and live there, or have a drink with me. See you there. spoiler: the GoT fans won't regret going.

CLIMATE vs WEATHER: predicting global warming is like predicting how fast a pot of water will warm if you know the power output of the stove. Predicting weather is like predicting where and when the next bubble will rise in a boiling pot.

By 2050, we will loose ~50% of all glacier volume in the European Alps irrespective of the RCP. That's 20M Olympic swimming pools. Emissions in the next decades will determine the fate of the remaining half: RCP2.6: -63 +/- 11% RCP45: -79 +/- 9% RCP8.5: -94 +/- 4% (2100 wrt 2017)

What is the greenhouse effect, really? It's the rate at which greenhouse gases trap outgoing thermal radiation. I didn't really understand how it worked, so used Daniel Koll's line-by-line radiation code to show how increasing carbon dioxide concentrations cause global warming

No one nation has the funding, resources and expertise to mount a project like (Beyond-EPICA). It will stretch for at least six years and is likely to cost €30m (£26m). That's why Europe has come together to meet the challenge at Little Dome C
