Why isnt anyone talking about this?
Holy shit. Is this fucking real?
it’s not fake, but it is absolutely untrue. note: the headline says the heat wave melted 20% of an ISLAND IN ANTARCTICA, not all of Antarctica.
The island in question is Eagle Island, located near the southernmost point of South America.
So no, Antarctica did not lose 20% of it’s ice in nine days. Eagle Island did, however, reach “record high temperatures” (69 degrees Fahrenheit) from February 3-13, 2020.
This is due to climate change, of course, but please remember, a headline is not an article, and please don’t be alarmist for no reason.
Thank you for sharing this information! Really helping with the stress I had, and others probs too. I know this is still scary and due to climate change, but we can’t let headlines get the best of us, so it’s good to have the info
