The seriousness of current global warming is underlined by a reconstruction of climate at Maxwell Bay in the South Shetland Islands of the Antarctic Peninsula over approximately the last 14,000 years, which appears to show that the current warming and widespread loss of glacial ice are unprecedented.

British scientists say they have created a model of the British and Irish ice sheets that shows they moved in unexpected ways. Durham University researchers said their model reveals for the first time how the glaciers reversed their flows and retreated back into upland regions from where they originated. During the last glacial maximum, around 21,500 years ago, the ice sheets built up on the high land of the Lake District, north Pennines and Scottish Southern Uplands, the researchers said.
