Latest Research Reveals Troubling Signs of Antarctica Ice Loss, Ocean Warming and Climate Warming Effects at World Heritage Sites

Antarctica's ice sheets are losing mass more than six-times faster than previously believed and ocean temperatures are rising as much as 40-times faster than the latest U.N. IPCC report estimates.

  1. I would like all viewers to visit ClimateTruthIreland just to clear your clouded minds concerning the truth about global warming. Not everyone is duped, you know.
