James B. McClintock will use personal experience and storytelling to frame the dramatic impacts of rapid climate change in one of the most sensitive regions of our planet. Rapid glacial recession, massive ice sheet break-outs, and significant loss of annual sea ice are among the physical impacts presented. But perhaps more poignant are the ramifications of rapid climate change and warming on marine wildlife ranging from phytoplankton to krill and to the Adelie penguin, whose populations have plummeted 90% near Palmer Station to the central western Antarctic Peninsula. Despite the changes of climate change , the talk concludes on an optimistic note, recounting the discovery of the hold in the ozone over Antarctica and its successful mitigation.
