Dinos on Move
In this April 15, 2014 file photo, a cast of a Tyrannosaurus rex discovered in Montana greets visitors as they enter the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington. Tyrannosaurus Rex and his buddies are on the move as a new study proposes a massive shake up of the dinosaur family tree. A new study that looks at more than 450 characteristics of 75 dinosaur species proposes a different evolutionary history of dinosaurs, moves the theropods such as T. Rex to a new branch of the family tree and even suggests a bit earlier and more northerly origins for dinosaurs. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

ARCTIC
On March 7, 2017, Arctic sea ice hit a record low wintertime maximum extent in 2017. At 5.57 million square miles, it is the lowest maximum extent in the satellite record, and 455,600 square miles below the 1981 to 2010 average maximum extent.

Global Shrinking
In this artist rendering provided by the Florida Museum of Natural History, illustration by Danielle Byerley shows a comparison of a Sifrhippus sandrae, right, with a modern Morgan horse that stands about 5 feet tall at the shoulder and weighs about 1,000 pounds. Global warming often leads to global shrinking for mammals, like us, a new study suggests. At least twice before in Earth’s history, when carbon dioxide levels soared and temperatures spiked, mammals shriveled in a bit in size, including our earliest primate ancestor, according to a new study based on fossil teeth found in Wyoming. And the study’s chief author said it could be a glimpse of a smaller mammal future under even faster man-made warning that’s going on now.
