When you think of Antarctica you usually think of a frozen wasteland with ice and snow covering everything. A new study shows that might not always be the truth in the future as the earth’s temperatures rise. Based on a study from the University of Exeter they found that the changes to the ecology of the area are unprecedented. The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the fastest-warming places on the planet. The growth of moss around the Antarctic Peninsula has greatly increased over the last 50 years due to the rise in temperatures. The group is trying to date core samples back to 1000 years so they can get a better picture of how things were before human induced climate change. Here’s a cool video about the extreme changes near the antarctic peninsula and the Extreme Ice Survey team on an expedition to South Georgia Island near the Antarctic Peninsula.
What I am going to tell you is what I think about the changing climate and the considerable impact it has had on our planet and what each nation, such as the United States, can do to respond to the matter. The aspects of climate change have resulted
