    Anytime I read something about Antarctica’s ice melting thus sea levels rising I look for the mention of Florida (my home state). I found out from a very early age that above all else we’re screwed as a state, something like the ocean rising just 20 feet and putting 90% of the state underwater.

    As a big advocate for reducing our effects on this planet we call home at all costs, this article is probably one of the more informative and less fear mongering ones about climate change i’ve read lately

    As a big advocate for reducing our effects on this planet we call home at all costs, this article is probably one of the more informative and less fear mongering ones about climate change i’ve read lately. Its better to know all the facts and information to help rationalize a potential solution. “The future of Antarctica is tied to that of the rest of the planet and human society.”
