Wallpaper Description:
A section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet with mountains poking through, viewed from a window of a NASA Operation IceBridge airplane on October 28, 2016, in flight over Antarctica. NASA's Operation IceBridge has been studying how polar ice has evolved over the past eight years and was flying a set of 12-hour research flights over west Antarctica at the start of the melt season. Researchers have used the IceBridge data to observe that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet may be in a state of irreversible decline directly contributing to rising sea levels.

And one of the more natural looking 4sided pyramids. I think our greatest worry is not from flooding but from space... in a form of an asteroid..., my be the size of a mountain??

Every Summer, some ice melts away because of the season not because of CO2 emissions but because of the sun. Its emitting more of UV 'A', 'B', and 'C' radiation. Also, Antarctica has an active volcano, so some ice must melt away. Many people don't know that.8)8)

The word irreversible seems a little drastic, we have had many mini ice ages through out our history! Great image 1fd
