Climate change turning Antarctica’s snow green

As per new research, warming temperatures due to climate change are helping the formation and spread of ’green snow’ in the Antarctica, becoming so prolific that it is even visible from space. As per researchers, ’the algal blooms in Antarctica are equivalent to about the amount of carbon that’s being emitted by 875,000 average UK petrol car journeys’. Red and orange algae have also been noticed.

Ha. Titles are written like it chemicals turning snow green, when it has nothing to do with climate change. It's just algae. When will they stop pushing this narrative, yes it's getting warmer, but it has been getting warmer for a long long time. We are at the tail end of an ice age after all.
