Last quote about Antarctica

Gísli Jónsson
This was the first time this full traverse has ever been attempted, let alone doing it there and back. There are established routes to the South Pole and to the base station at McMurdo, but no passenger car has done anything remotely close to what we planned to take on.feedback

You can find on this page a variety of quotes, by one or many people, on what they said about Antarctica. 36 people are quoted and you can read 46 citations of them about Antarctica. Ian Willis, John Kerry, Mark Serreze and Luc Jacquet, are those who have spoken the most about this topic. Ian Willis said: “There was really so little known about the hydrology of Antarctica. About 10 years ago, I used to tell the students that there's just starting to be an understanding of water and the Greenland ice sheet. The same is true of Antarctica today.”.

That whole sea ice thing in Antarctica is no joke. I'm not going to sit here and say I'm like some 'Sierra Club' kind of guy. But I definitely at least wonder where the Earth is going to be in 10 to 20 years now.feedback

Dee Boersma

When conditions are good, they can raise two chicks in a season and continue to feed them. When there's little food around, they save themselves, forgetting about both eggs and chicks.feedback

Non-breeding birds are harder to count because they are out foraging at sea, rather than nesting in colonies on land. However, our study in East Antarctica, has shown that non-breeding Adelie penguins may be as, or more, abundant than the breeders. These birds are an important reservoir of future breeders and estimating their numbers ensures we better understand the entire population's foraging needs.feedback

Luc Jacquet

We had a team of five divers who went down to a depth of 70 metres. That was a world-first. No one had dived so deep in the Antarctica. We discovered the absolute grace of the penguin in the depths, that perhaps is not news but the quality of these 'submarines', the colours, they are absolutely incredible creatures.feedback

Michael Sparrow

Verification of maximum and minimum temperatures help us to build up a picture of the weather and climate in one of Earth's final frontiers.feedback

Mark Serreze

But unless something funny happens, we're looking at a record minimum in Antarctica. Some people say it's already happened. We tend to be conservative by looking at five-day running averages.feedback

Mark Serreze

We've always thought of the Antarctic as the sleeping elephant starting to stir. Well, maybe it's starting to stir now.feedback

Vicki Arroyo

I think it would be really difficult to roll back the endangerment finding. It would be really difficult at this stage to argue in a legally defensible manner that there is not endangerment given what we're seeing with the Greenland ice melt, Antarctica, the more frequent severe storms, long droughts – many of which have been connected to human responsibility for CO2 and other climate-related emissions.feedback

Javier Negrete

It's not clear if the animals are disappearing or relocating.feedback

Rodolfo Sanchez

I started coming here in 1990. It snowed, but it did not rain... now in the summer it is raining all the time.feedback

Rodolfo Sanchez

This glacial retreat at Potter Cove releases a mass of fresh water that alters salinity levels and unleashes sediment ... changing the abundance and diversity of wildlife.feedback

Martin O'Leary

We think that once this iceberg has gone, the 'Larsen C' ice shelf will be in a less stable position than before, precisely how much less stable depends on what path the crack takes as it propagates. I think we're probably more worried that the next iceberg could cause the next iceberg to collapse rather than this time around.feedback

Andrew Fleming

The Larsen B shattered like car safety glass into thousands and thousands of pieces. It disappeared in the space of about a week.feedback

Jay Zwally

By itself this calving is not a cause for alarm. But the ice shelf has been thinning as other ice shelves have been thinning in the Antarctic peninsula.feedback

Callum Roberts

People's first reaction is that 30 percent sounds like a lot, that you'll never get it, that you must be mad. But we are all pretty mad to have thought that we could sustain nature and the processes on the planet on anything less than that.feedback

John Kerry

The Ross Sea region MPA will safeguard one of the last unspoiled ocean wilderness areas on the planet – home to unparalleled marine biodiversity and thriving communities of penguins, seals, whales, seabirds and fish.feedback

John Kerry

The Ross Sea Region marine protected area (MPA) will safeguard one of the last unspoiled ocean wilderness areas on the planet -- home to unparalleled marine biodiversity and thriving communities of penguins, seals, whales, seabirds, and fish.feedback

Mike Walker

For the first time, countries have put aside their differences to protect a large area of the Southern Ocean and international waters. Although there was not a decision on the proposed protection of the Weddell Sea and the East Antarctic this year, we are confident that these areas will be protected in the coming years, adding to the system of marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean.feedback

Murray McCully

It goes to demonstrate that you can never jump to conclusions. Every now and then you get lucky.feedback

John Kerry

It happened because our nations understood the responsibility we share to protect this unique place for future generations. The Ross Sea region marine protected area will safeguard one of the last unspoiled ocean wilderness areas on the planet – home to unparalleled marine biodiversity and thriving communities of penguins, seals, whales, seabirds, and fish.feedback

We couldn't be happier about this result. This is history. This has never been done before.feedback

Louise Sime - British Antarctic Survey

By uncovering, for the first time, a huge retreat around Antarctica, we have established that sea ice in the Southern Hemisphere is also susceptible to major climate changes.feedback

Andrew Shepherd

It's completely unsurprising that in any long-term temperature record there will be a decade of measurements that buck the trend. There are few scientists left who believe that atmospheric warming will be the main cause of Antarctic [ice] instability over the next century. The real threat is ocean warming, which has triggered widespread loss of ice just around the corner in west Antarctica and we should not lose sight of that.feedback

Ross Salawitch

The paper is quite convincing. To me at least it resolves the mystery of the 2015 Antarctic ozone hole. So, 28 years after the Montreal Protocol was agreed upon, we have strong evidence that the ozone hole is getting smaller. I'd say this is a remarkable achievement, particularly in the instant gratification world in which we live.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

This is not a time to make a protest vote. This is a time to treat your vote as though that is the single vote that will determine the next government.feedback

Colin Summerhayes

Even water that cool is still warm enough to melt the ice at the base of the ice shelves.feedback

Andrew Shepherd

Based upon what we know things will look very different in the northern hemisphere. The sea ice has been retreating over the past few decades. We know that for sure. The polar ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland will look the same from space, they are big white things, but they'll have a lot less ice in them. And that ice will end up in the water and so sea levels will rise as a consequence of that. So people will need to adapt to those changes.feedback

Alain Hubert

Mostly when we talk about climate change in Antarctica we talk about the western peninsula, which has the same problem as we have in the Alps in Europe, or in the Andes, with the melting of the ice. But East Antarctica is a place where you get more accumulation at the moment.feedback
