Scientists find that cyanobacteria cause sediments on glaciers to clump, thus absorbing more sunlight. It's not great news for fans of lower sea levels.

Greenland's melting ice sheet has 'passed the point of no return,' scientists say, dooming it to disappear

Snowfall can no longer replenish the ice lost as Greenland's glaciers retreat, so it will keep melting and cause catastrophic sea-level rise, even if global temperatures stop rising. The climate crisis could bring about other tipping points in...
