I fail to see it being significant!

Well then, your extinction won’t matter.

OUR extinction doesn't matter... in the scheme of life.

We have brought about our own destruction.... the only issue is which one of our human excesses will do us in first.

:WTF
Yes . well I heard something on a national TV fta station, 10, who reported that people doing research down in Antarctica the Ross Ice shelf ? were taking samples for whatever.. :roll :h :PC :read

when they recorded a SOUND. It was coming from the terrain.. they played a small amount of the sound in the News item, and it was ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………... :OMG :OMG …………………………..

the scariest sound I've ever heard. !! Honestly....

I swear..... cross my heart and hope to die.... I've been in earthquakes... but even on the TV, for a short time, ?? that sound??
FREAK'in strikes to the primeval core.!

We are busy wiping ourselves out, DRAH. You don’t want that better work on some messages to convince people to change their ways.

Oh.. but that was just shown.! :?
How do you watch TV on the Net..? you know what? I don't want to know. I get you can hook up your comp to a suitable TV, and whoopee.. I really can't do that... more important things to do.

It was very scary.

I wonder how long it will be before carpet-baggers start selling land in Antarctica.

It's a government intervention problem: that's what got the fossil fuels going in the first place you blooming idiot!

NASA Earth Verified account @NASAEarth Dec 10 More
As the climate warms, Antarctica has been melting unevenly. Some areas like the Antarctic Peninsula & West Antarctica have lost mass rapidly. Others, like East Antarctica, have stayed relatively stable. But new research suggests that could be changing.
https://go.nasa.gov/2GiKQoa



@NASAEarth

A group of glaciers spanning an eighth of the coast of East Antarctica are reacting to the warming ocean and beginning to lose ice. This hints at widespread changes in the ocean.



@NASA_ICE

scientists found that a group of four glaciers in Vincennes Bay have lowered their surface height by 9 feet since 2008. Farther east, glaciers along the Wilkes Land coast have approximately doubled their rate of lowering since around 2009.

@NASAEarth

There are still a lot of questions about how fast and in what ways East Antarctica will melt. Some of that depends on the seafloor under the ice shelves and the bedrock under the glaciers, which determine how warm ocean waters can access and melt the ice.

@NASAEarth

For the time being, West Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula continue be Antarctica’s largest contributor to sea level rise, but East Antarctica seems to be waking up to the warming of the oceans, too.

Found this Twitter thread. Comfortable reading it isn’t. With summer in the southern hemisphere scientists are out on the ice shelves etc so more news sure to follow.
