Antarctica is Not 'Frozen in Time' Also Threatened By Heat Wave
A new report highlights the urgency of addressing extreme weather in Antarctica as rising temperatures push the region into unprecedented conditions. The continent, once seen as somewhat shielded from global warming, is experiencing dramatic changes, with record-breaking heatwaves and sea ice at an all-time low. These shifts are linked to human-caused climate change and threaten coastlines, biodiversity, and ecosystems. Scientists emphasize the need for both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and implementing adaptation measures to address the increasing frequency of destructive weather events.
