What Happened In 2014: Our Cryosphere

Okay, I ended the last post by saying that we would next review what happened to the earth’s oceans in 2014 and instead here I am talking about our cryosphere (the earth’s enduring ice zones).  So what is up with that?  Well, I decided that I couldn’t really talk about the oceans without first talking […]
