    'Grave indicator': Penguins' survival at stake as Antarctic ice disappears

    'Grave indicator': Penguins' survival at stake as Antarctic ice disappears

    ANTARCTIC PENINSULA -- There are serious changes taking place here at the bottom of the world.



    Increasingly, experts say, the ice is disappearing at a disturbing rate in the Antarctic Peninsula and that in turn impacts the future -- and perhaps the very existence -- of at least half of the world’s 18 penguin species, who depend on ice and frigid waters that support krill, the penguin diet mainstay.

    “When cheetahs or lions get hunted, or elephants decline, there’s a big uproar. And I think, because you see penguins in large numbers [in some places] people are ignoring the larger rate of their decline,” said Oxford University penguinologist Tom Hart. “The general public doesn't realize the penguins are declining so fast.”

    But it’s not just the penguins we have to worry about, Hart says, it’s the health of the planet itself.

    THE NEXT TIME YOU VOTE FOR SOME TEA PARTY PRIK ASK YOURSELF IF THE KOCH BROS PROPAGANDA ON MMGW SQUARES WITH REALITY AND WHAT IS AT STAKE.
