New research finds escalating melt of Antarctic ice sheet


NASA scientist Eric Rignot, lead author of the new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience: “Without doubt, Antarctica as a whole is now losing ice yearly, and each year it’s losing more….We believe it is related to global climate forcing.”  “The new findings come as the Arctic is losing ice at a dramatic rate and glaciers are in retreat across the planet,” the Washington Post reported on January 14.
