    Antarctica Has Lost More Than 3 Trillion Tons Of Ice In 25 Years
    Scientists have completed the most exhaustive assessment of changes in Antarctica's ice sheet to date. And they found that it's melting faster than they thought. Ice losses totaling 3 trillion tonnes (or more than 3.3 trillion tons) since 1992 have caused global sea levels to rise by 7.6 mm, nearly one third of an inch, according to a study published in Nature on Wednesday.

At 64° North Latitude, Iceland’s capital Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost national capital, Buenos Aires, Argentina is the world’s 4th southernmost national capital at 34° South Latitude. Despite Iceland’s northerly location, it does manage to maintain a relatively mild climate thanks to the Gulf Stream, one of the world’s most important ocean currents that was first mapped in 1770 by Benjamin Franklin. http://bit.ly/2JIpTQJ

"As the moon moves away, the Earth is like a spinning figure skater who slows down as they stretch their arms out." https://ind.pn/2xIIxX4

    Slowly but surely, days on Earth are getting longer
    A day was once only 18 hours long when the moon was closer to Earth, a new study has claimed. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have found that 1.4 billion years ago the moon orbited much closer to the planet, altering the way it spins on its axis.
