Gravity Is the Latest Victim of Climate Change

Yep, you read that right. Gravity. In a stunning report released by the European Space Agency, it was found that climate change is changing the gravitational pull in Antarctica. Isaac Newtown would be dumbfounded.

The ESA’s report stated that, “the loss of ice from West Antarctica between 2009 and 2012 caused a dip in the gravity field over the region.” The Agency has been measuring the gravity of the area via satellites.

The change in gravity is relatively small.

You won’t space float off of Antarctica anytime soon. That said, the study’s findings show that global warming is shifting Antarctica in huge, irreversible ways.

These changes to the Antarctic Peninsula aren’t new news: earlier this year scientists said that the region’s glaciers had started “unstoppable collapse.” This report is what led to a definitive conclusion that sea levels across the globe will rise in the next few hundred years. Estimates say that this rise could be as much as 50 inches high by the end of the century.

Let’s circle back to Mr. Newton for a moment. Gravity isn’t actually a constant. It varies just a tiny bit depending on what sort of Earth surface you’re standing on. As the density changes, so does the gravity. This change tends to be quite small, but in the case of Antarctica, the change is measurable now due to the significant loss of ice.

Greenland and Antarctica are losing a piece of ice about the size of Manhattan each year. With this loss, it’s only a matter of time before we see more clearly the huge impacts climate change is having on the globe.

In the meantime, keep your feet on the ground and watch this video about the report’s findings:
