Warming potential of clouds could explain how Earth thawed out

Scientists have found that the greenhouse potential of clouds, which had been overlooked in previous research, could explain how a Snowball Earth may have melted.

Glaciation not related to carbon isotopic ratio

Washington: The large changes in the carbon isotopic composition of carbonates which occurred prior to the major climatic event more than 500 million years ago, known as `Snowball Earth`.

Global warming likely to delay next ice age

Researchers have warned that unprecedented levels of greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere are disrupting normal patterns of glaciation.
