Retreat of Antarctic ice gathers pace

An update on the climate-change front. Note what one of the authors says:

David Vaughan, one of the authors of the study, said: "The widespread retreat of the glaciers on the Antarctic peninsula over the past 50 years was largely caused by climate change. Are humans responsible? We can't say for sure but we are one step closer to answering this important question."

Yes, the answer will come in steps, so let's not do anything rash in the meantime.
