Deep ocean in deep trouble as Antarctic ice melts
West Australian, Other, 30/03/2023, Tracey Ferrier
Australian scientists have made dire projections about what Antarctica’s melting ice will do to global ocean health without rapid emissions cuts this decade. Most people know fossil fuel use is warming the planet, melting polar ice caps and pushing up sea levels. […] “That’s where the urgency comes from,” says CSIRO oceanographer Dr Steve Rintoul, who helped produce the projections and has spent his career studying how the Southern Ocean around Antarctica affects earth’s systems.
