The last thing that comes to mind when we think of Antarctica is the color green.
After all, the continent is one of the coldest and desolate places on earth with ice everywhere.
But due to global warming, glaciers have been melting and vital ice shelves have large cracks in them which will cause sea levels to rise.
Now there’s more evidence that points to the threat of global warming, moss.
Scientists published a new study in Current Biology that shows two different species of moss growing faster than ever on the Antarctic Peninsula.
