  1. antarctica’s “continental climate” will keep it insulated from the effects of global warming to a certain extent. However, ice is a simple substance that behaves very simply. The hotter it gets, the more it melts. And one can’t argue against the fact that the ice in the Arctic has been melting quite a bit lately. Eventually, Antarctica will lose a great quantity of its ice too.
