Prince William's interview with David Attenborough raises stark warning

As the broadcaster began to explain that rising temperatures are one of the biggest dangers facing the planet today, he went on to highlight the difficulty in capturing the precise moment a glacier "calved" the large fragment of ice. "What we are doing to our planet at the moment, could you look them in the eye and say - 'I knew what could be done to stop degradation of the environment and the planet, but it was too hard and rather boring, and I failed to do it".

Footage of the event was finally captured because Madiedo doubled the number of telescopes equipped with high-sensitivity video cameras he uses to normally monitor different parts of the moon from four to eight. "In this way, these flashes are well contrasted against the darker background".

Greenland's Melting Ice Sheet Nears Tipping Point

Greenland's Melting Ice Sheet Nears Tipping Point

The study, which was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed that Greenland lost about 280 billion tons of ice a year between 2002 and 2016. "We knew we had one big problem with increasing rates of ice discharge by some large outlet glaciers", he said. "But now we recognise a second serious problem: increasingly, large amounts of ice mass are going to leave as meltwater, as rivers that flow into the sea". Consulte Mais Informação

Lunar Eclipse & Super Moon

Lunar Eclipse & Super Moon

The next one will be in May 2021. The Feb. 19 full moon won't feature an eclipse, but it will rate as the biggest and brightest lunar spectacle of the year - which justifies the sole "supermoon" title in my book.
