Submission West Antarctica Warming Faster Than Thought->

dgrobinson writes: "NY Times reports that West Antarctica has warmed more over the last half century than was first thought.
A paper released Sunday by the journal Nature Geoscience found that the temperature at a research station in the middle of West Antarctica has warmed by 4.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1958. That is roughly twice as much as scientists previously thought and three times the overall rate of global warming, making central West Antarctica one of the fastest-warming regions on earth."
