Snow and ice melt every summer in Greenland, and this heat wave was an anomalous event, but climatologists [...]

Earlier this month, UNESCO officially designated Myanmar’s ancient city of Bagan as a World Heritage site. More than 3,500 ancient Buddhist pagodas, temples, and other religious structures occupy approximately 16 square miles of Old Bagan within the larger Bagan Archaeological Zone.

Restoration work continues, and new laws have been passed to help preserve the site, as well as manage the impact of increasing visitors to the popular [...]
