Arched iceberg, ship, Neko Harbor, Graham Land, Antarctica.
The red and white ship M/S Explorer anchors near an arched blue iceberg at Neko Harbor, Graham Land, the north portion of the Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica (in February 2005). Nearby glaciers calve icebergs which melt into the Southern Ocean or dissolve in chunks washed onto the beach. 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).Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
