Quarter of West Antarctic glacier ice unstable, says 25-year satellite study

With the Earth in a state of flux at the moment, we need to keep a particularly close eye on Antarctica. Plenty of satellites are whizzing overhead to do just that, and now a new study has examined 25 years of data they've collected to get a sense of the extent of ice loss across Antarctica. According to the findings, warming waters have destabilized as much as a quarter of the glacier ice in West Antarctica...
