Troubling new research shows warm waters rushing towards the world's biggest ice sheet in Antarctica

  1. It’s the end of the world. This is pretty much the tail end of humanity. And supply and water shortages are just around the corner!

  2. It's been going on since I studied it 20 years ago and was an established observation for 20 years before that. The planet has been in trouble for a long, long time, unfortunately.

  3. All of this time and you just kept it to yourself (eyeroll) /s It's really too bad so many climate denialists died from covid. It's turning into an amazing tragic comedy, I wish they would/could have stuck around!

  4. If you've been studying it this long, have you calculated the volume of water per day? per week? How about how many Republican Congressman you'd have to buy off to get actual movement on this?

  5. It certainly would be an interesting... setting if a bunch of sci-fi things were actually produced by time travelers trying to warn the past.

  6. Soylent Green would not work due to the law of conservation of energy, cannabilization cannot be the primary form of nutrition and there still be a overpopulation problem. People would be dropping like flies due simply to the fact you would have to kill more people than actually exist in the population.

  7. Well, thoughts and prayers. But we can't outlaw warm water because then only criminals would have warm water.

  8. If it heats up the surrounding environment, then yes it's concerning. It's the melt on top of the glaciers on land that is most concerning.

  9. you realize that this is basically an unreversable thing? Its a cascading effect that will just get worse and worse over the coming years and decades
