The Effect of Climate Change on Antarctica - Our Last True Wildness
20 November 2012: Joseph Chan of Swire Beverages came to tell us of his trip to Antarctica with 70 other people concerned about the environment. He told how global warming is melting the ice and causing the number of krill in the Southern Ocean to drop reducing the food supply for the ecosystem. The long term impact of the ice melt is likely to be a substantial global sea level rise which will affect all coastal communities.
The trip to Antarctica was arranged by Robert Swan's 2041 organisation which is campaigning for the international treaty banning to development of Antarctic up to 2041 to be extended.
