An iceberg floats off the coast of Antarctica symbolizing the effects of global warning as Antarctic ice melts away. The photograph captures the three states water can be in: liquid (ocean), solid (iceberg), and a gas (fog as water vapor). This image was capture right as a blanket of fog was rolling in from the Weddell Sea. This caused a beautiful halo to form around the sun. Loss of Antarctic glacial ice from 1992 to 2006 is estimated to average a net loss of 50 gigaton of ice per year. This alone accounts for global sea level to raise 1.4mm per decade (Shepherd, A.; Wingham, D. (2007). "Recent Sea-Level Contributions of the Antarctic and Greenland Ice Sheets". Science.).
