Hot in front

More than two hundred Antarctic glaciers are retreating due to global warming. BAS (British Antarctic Survey) experts have observed this by studying 2 aerial photos taken since the 000s and around a hundred satellite photos.

The temperature of this sixth continent has increased by 2 ° C in half a century. The movement is accelerating: the Sjogren glacier has retreated by 8 km since 1993.
