West Antarctica warming fast

A spot in part of West Antarctica is heating faster than any other place on the planet. The temperature has risen 2.4 degrees from 1958 to 2010. As many know this not a good situation. Its causing West Antarctic ice sheets to melt and contribute to rising sea levels. This goes to show that Iceland, the North Pole, and the South Pole are not the only places on earth with ice sheets that are melting.
