Threat and opportunity in West Antarctic ice sheet collapse
By Katie Sarro, WBCSD U.S., Inc.
This just in: the world as we know it is coming to an end. News broke earlier this week that large parts of the ice sheet in West Antarctica have begun to melt and it is almost certainly irreversible. The cause of this catastrophe is inconsequential: what matters is that sea-levels will likely rise enough that eventually, many of the world’s coastal cities will need to be abandoned. Everyone stock up on canned goods and head for the hills, armageddon is upon us.
