New research links Antarctic ice loss to greenhouse gas emissions

 A new study has provided the first concrete evidence linking ice loss from
the West Antarctic ice sheet with the emission of greenhouse gases, raising
serious concerns over sea level rises.

The West Antarctic ice sheet in the
Amundsen Sea is already one of the biggest and fastest contributors to the
world’s rising sea levels, and if it completely melted, would further
raise sea levels by up to 3 metres.
