Research in the polar regions has never been more important in the quest to understand impacts of climate change, according to the UK's science minister. Urgent scientific effort in Antarctica was needed to assess the extent of global warming, Malcolm Wicks observed. He made the comments during a visit to the British Antarctic Survey's (BAS) research station at Rothera. Next week marks the start of the International Polar Year, involving scientists from more than 60 nations. Mr Wicks, the UK's Science and Innovation Minister, is spending six days at the BAS base to see at first hand the research being undertaken by scientists in the region!.he siad that climate is changing but he don't know what coseguences there will be!!!! so are you scared about this fact? are we destroying our eart?
