Antartica Heating Three Times Faster Than The Rest Of The World


You must have heard that Antarctic Peninsula has warmed by more than 2.5C during the past 50 years but without much temperature changes elsewhere on the continent. But the situation is much worse than you think.

Recently weather balloon data by scientists at the British Antarctic Survey shows that the air above the surface of Antarctica is definitely warming but worse is that the changes are not even predictable by the current climate models.

What is really puzzling is that climate change is three times stronger in this region than expericened around the world elsewhere and scientist are still not able to determine why greenhouse gases are having 3 times more impact on this area.

So what awaits us now unless our enlightened opinions don’t work fast is a rise in the sea level which can destabilize the thick blankets of ice there.
