Emperor Penguins and Climate Change
You might call them the "poster children" of Antarctica. Penguins have long topped the charts as the iconic animal of the frozen continent. But now, a new National Science Foundation study indicates melting sea ice, caused by climate change, may soon wreak havoc on one colony of Emperor penguins--and that could spell doom for a large swath of the entire species. We’ll explore the findings of biologist Hal Caswell with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.
