The polar regions of the earth are where the effects of global warming are most pronounced. Sea ice has been disintegrating constantly and at extremely alarming rates, the examples of which include the breaking away of the Larsen B ice shelf in Antarctica. The immediate effects of climate change are felt by the inhabitants of the poles such as polar bears, penguins. seals and whales. The penguins of Antarctica have very delicate and complicated life cycles, depending on seasonal variations and the availability of food. Any unprecedented change in this could mean death by starvation for their brood.
