El Nino's long reach to Antarctic Ice
#1
http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-42614412

This article highlights the specifics of how both the warming of the tropical eastern Pacific seawaters and how it melts their undersides, all due to the El Nino phenomenon. It also highlights the intense research that scientists are doing to help discover how Antarctica will respond to an ever-warming earth. This article is important, in my opinion, because the poles are usually what helps regulate the temperature of the earth itself, and as the ice caps start to melt the global temperature will begin to rise. It also brings awareness to the many wildlife that the poles house, as animals start to die off, it will send a chain reaction to the rest of the food cycle that will eventually or instantaneously hit us as well. We should continue to look and monitor the poles more often as the weather changes to frequently having extreme weather events occur.
