Antarctic Melting

A recent report released by NASA refutes the often made argument that global warming does not affect Antarctica and thus doesn't exist.This report suggests an area the size of California underwent unprecedented melting during the Antarctic summer of 2005.While not enough to cause catastrophic ice sliding it tends to add credence to gradual acceleration of climate change, a concept opposed by neo-Luddites, oil companies, and the United States government.
