Nowhere in the world is the impact of climate change more profound than the world's polar ends. Antarctica may not get the kind of media attention that polar bears of the Arctic do, but the impact of climate change to the biology of the South Pole is increasingly harsh, and that doesn't account for the vast changes in  ice levels and geography.
