|Scientists Warn of Rising Seas As Antarctic Ice Sheet Melts The collapse of large parts of the ice sheet in West Antarctica appears to have begun and is almost certainly unstoppable, with global warming accelerating the pace of the disintegration, two groups of scientists reported Monday.
The finding, which had been feared by some scientists for decades, means that a rise in global sea level of at least 10 feet may now be inevitable. The rise may continue to be relatively slow for at least the next century or so, the scientists said, but sometime after that it will probably speed up so sharply as to become a crisis. (05-12-2014)|

|Philippines Slammed Unprecedented Storm With winds up to 195 mph Super Typhoon Haiyan is among the most powerful storms witnessed anywhere in modern times.

Haiyan will also produce a severe and inundating storm surge, especially along the eastern coast of southern Luzon and Samar islands.
