We all know that climate is either going to change, or is already doing so, as a result of human activities changing the atmosphere's composition and its land surface.

Environmental hypotheses of African faunal evolution propose that major faunal speciation, extinction, and innovation events during the Pliocene-Pleistocene were mediated by changes in Africa
Antarctic sea ice seasonal forecasts based on a linear Markov model are in high demand for both observational and climate communities. They are provided by Xiaojun Yuan and Dake Chen.
Global warming is abruptly redrawing parts of Antarctica’s coastline, as ice shelves collapse into the sea.
The Antarctic Zone Flux Experiment (ANZFLUX) was conducted aboard the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer in the Eastern Weddell Sea.

Research led by Richard Seager describes a modeling and paleoclimate perspective on the causes of North American droughts.
Introduction to the North Atlantic Oscillation, the most significant climate phenomena in the northern hemisphere.
Writing in July 2010 when the eastern U.S. has been having one heat wave after another, it is easy to forget the winter just past, but winter 2009/10 was one of record snow in much of the mid-Atlantic region and very cold conditions across eastern North America. There was also widespread cold and snow in northwestern Europe. At the time, as record snowfall hit Washington D.C., this was a big deal much exploited by climate deniers and others to ridicule global warming and climate science.
How much CO2 from human activity enters the ocean?
Research and analysis of the Polar Regions and their impact on global climate.
The ring of deep water around Antarctica not only links the major ocean [Atlantic/Pacific/Indian] , but also produces dense waters along the continental margins of the frozen continent, which sinks
