Dr. James McClintock on NPR, Speaks About Global Warming

“Well, here in Antarctica, you see it with your own eyes. You know, we’re seeing changes in whole ecologies, whole communities down here that probably wouldn’t be unusual over millennia. But here, they’re happening over a few decades. I really believe this is sort of the bellwether, if you will, of climate change environments on our planet. And we need to take heed of that. We’re seeing changes at home. They’re much more dramatic here, and they’re going to get more dramatic where we live as well.” – Dr. James McClintock
