NEWSHOUR SHARES - Antarctic Ice Shelf

"Massive ice shelf break forces Antarctic researchers to evacuate" PBS NewsHour 2/8/2017

ASIDE:  Ever see the movie "Day After Tomorrow?"  This will sound familiar, the movies opening sequence, which appears near the end of the trailer.


SUMMARY:  In our NewsHour Shares moment of the day, British researchers have monitored changes in the world's atmosphere from a remote lab in Antarctica for more than 60 years.  Now, for the first time the state-of-the-art facility will close -- at least temporarily -- after a nearly 30-mile long crack opened up on the ice shelf.
