I saw it melting!

In March 2000, the most massive iceberg ever measured broke away from the Ross Ice Shelf. The iceberg named B-14 was 170 miles (270 kilometres) long and 25 miles (40 km)wide — nearly the size of Connecticut. In March 2000, Iceberg B-15 broke up into smaller icebergs, the largest of whom drifted away In 2003 from Ross island into the Ross Sea and headed north, eventually breaking up into several smaller icebergs in October 2005.In October 2006, a study showed that all these changes were caused by a massive storm in the Gulf of Alaska, which has generated a swell that has contributed to breaking iceberg into many pieces on27 October 2005. The swell travelled 13,500 kilometres (8,400 mi) from Alaska to Antarctica over six days. This event is an example of how the weather in one area can have effects in other parts of the world.

 

Everyone knows that global warming is a real threat and Antarctica is not immune. Some so many individuals are relatively uneducated about the impact that we have on the environment. It’s an effort to save the continent, and we have to protect Antarctica. To achieve this ambitious aim, we need so many little hands to support us, and we all can join this mission with individual contribution and individual support. We must complete this project, and for this, we need your help. We need your assistance. Please help us!

Our Goal::

our goal is to educate future generation about the changes that global warming is bringing into Antarctica. Our web series would focus on the imminent danger that Antarctica is facing and on the remedial actions to protect the continent from these risks. This web series would be distributed to more than 2000schools both in the rural and urban area, with or without internet connectivity. The fo would be on the small contribution that every individual can make to produce a cumulative more significant and united impact.Moreover, the documentary would be launched on the different digital platform to have a higher audience and hence more substantial effect.

What’s the problem?

The Antarctic ice sheet is the most abundant single mass of ice on Earth. Ice covers ninety-nine percent of Antarctica. Antarctica is home to about 90 percent of the planet’s freshwater ice. The average thickness of Antarctic ice is about 1 mile (1.6kilometers).The Antarctic ice sheet contains sufficient ice to raise worldwide sea level by more than 60 meters if melted completely. If the West AntarcticIce Sheet melted entirely, it would increase global average sea levels by 16feet (5 meters), according to some estimates. Such a rise in sea level will swamp coastal areas all over the world and global mega-cities such as New York, Tokyo, Jakarta, Mumbai would either not be cities or be battling for their survival.

Over the past 50years, the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula has been one of the most rapidly warming parts of the planet. Global warming is a real threat, and Antarctica is not immune. There is a genuine chance that Antarctica will not be the same in the near future. It is our duty to save the continent. However, the most significant obstacle is lack of awareness. Some so many individuals are relatively uneducated about the impact that human activities have on the environment. People in the urban world have started taking steps to reverse this effect. But, still, there is a strong need for awareness to fight against climate change specifically Antarctica climate change.

The project::

This project aims to educate individuals, mainly students, about the changes that Antarctica is going through as a result of human activities. A small team of Social Nurture would travel down to Antarctica to shoot a documentary covering the impact of global warming on Antarctica. We intend to take information back home to our family, friends, and society and spread the awareness about the remedial actions that we should take or detrimental activities that we should stop to deaccelerate global warming. The primary goal of the documentary is to entirely change the way people think and behave in their day-to-day life. This film will be created in 25 different languages and distributed across the globe to cater broader audience. Social Nurture aims to share the documentary with more than2,000 schools in different countries for free. If it achieves the target, it will educate more than 200,000 students. Moreover, the film with all dubbed versions to all digital platforms to be watched for free. These small steps would spread the awareness and motivate our future generation to adopt a lifestyle suitable for this planet.
