"Antarctica is Losing Ice at an accelerating rate. How much will sea levels rise?" PBS NewsHour 4/10/2019
SUMMARY: The frozen continent of Antarctica contains the vast majority of all freshwater on Earth. Now that ice is melting at an accelerating rate, in part because of climate change. What does this transformation mean for coastal communities across the globe? William Brangham reports from Antarctica on the troubling trend of ice loss and how glaciers can serve as a climate record from the past.
