No good news happening in Antarctica of late. Long time readers will not I did a post about the Wilkins Ice Shelf last year. Once again it hits the news, but not the front page.
As the planet warms, so do the poles, but at a greater rate. We are witnessing the impact of our civilizations inaction towards averting climate change as in the span of a few decades. This is like a horror movie!
During the video the commentator says that the collapse of the ice shelf is exciting. I find it extremely terrifying. This ice shelf is holding back others on the mainland, and
if when it breaks up the land ice will begin to move and melt. That is when we start to see sea levels rise on a visibly human timescale.
How much more evidence do policy makers need to take quick and positive action to reduce carbon emissions instead of pissing into the wind? Maybe an iceberg in Sydney harbour or Port Philip Bay would get their attention!
