EcoAlert: "When the Antarctic Ice Sheet Starts Deteriorating, It's Not That Easy to Get It Back"

New findings raise new questions about the stability of the Antarctic Ice Sheet today as atmospheric CO2 concentrations rise to levels never before experienced by humans. “We see here that when the Antarctic ice sheet starts deteriorating, it is not...
