Sea Levels Will Rise Much Faster Than Previously Predicted, Says New Report on Antarctic Polar Ice Melt:

Climate change models are only as good as the assumptions plugged into them. Findings published in the December Science could lead those models to predict faster ice melt, and therefore rising sea levels worse than currently foreseen. Scientists have long had good characterizations of the historical spread and retreat of the ice sheet capping the northern hemisphere. But the dimensions and timing of changes to the Antarctic ice cap emerge clearly for the first time in the studies published this month. The researchers were surprised to find that at the end of the last ice age, the southern ice cap was melting in sync with the retreat of northern ice, challenging the assumption that climatic isolation protects the Antarctic ice somewhat even as the Arctic caps shrink to record low levels . "The decline in the Antarctic ice sheets thus commenced almost 5,000 years earlier tha...
