ANTARCTICA - Losing Ice and Sea Level Rise

ANTARCTICA - Losing Ice And Sea Level Rise

"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.

Editor’s Note:  Peril & Promise is an ongoing series of public media reports telling the human stories of climate change.  Lead funding for Peril & Promise is provided by Dr. P. Roy Vagelos and Diana T. Vagelos. Major support is provided by Marc Haas Foundation.
