New research shows that populations of chinstrap penguins in the Antarctic peninsula have shrunk by over a half from 1971 to 2020

While a “foehn” event might have caused the temperature to spike in isolated readings, the Antarctic Peninsula has warmed by nearly 3 °C in the last 50 years.

Images out of a northern region of Antarctica show a landscape nearly devoid of ice and snow after record-setting temperatures last week. It hit nearly 65 degrees on the Antarctic peninsula, according to Argentina's national meteorological service.

There are some doubts that the WMO will certify this as a new record, since the station in question has only 12 years of data... but we shall see. Confirms extraordinary warmth recently seen in Antarctic Peninsula.

I visited the South Shetland Islands/Antarctic peninsula 10 years ago this month. I remember the temperature being in the mid-single digits and thinking it was balmy. I can’t even imagine it being this warm, but here we are. #Antarctica  #ClimateChange
