Zodiac boat, blue iceberg arch, Neko Harbor, Graham Land, Antarctica.
A Zodiac boat explores a blue iceberg arch melting in Neko Harbor (an inlet of the Southern Ocean), at Graham Land, the north portion of the Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica. Scientists have measured temperatures on the Antarctic Peninsula as warming faster than anywhere else on earth. An overwhelming consensus of world scientists agree that global warming is indeed happening and humans are contributing to it through emission of heat-trapping "greenhouse gases," primarily carbon dioxide (see www.ucsusa.org). Since the industrial revolution began, humans have increased atmospheric CO2 concentration by 35% (through burning of fossil fuels, deforesting land, and grazing livestock).
