More Antarctic Warming Data

Another scientific report, published in Nature, gives further evidence that Antarctica is warming. Satellite and weather station data give a warming of 0.6 degrees C over the past 50 years.

The science team said the warming was probably due to both anthropogenic (human-induced) effects and natural climatic cycles.

Meanwhile, a British Antarctic Survey team reports that a huge section of ice, the Wilkins Shelf, is about to break free.
